High Street pick of the week

I'm foolishly sharing this one! Firstly it is a knitted dress, probably one of my favourite concepts and secondly it is stripey, anything stripey is my weakness - I do not know why! Anyway, Reiss have sent me into - I can't believe I can't buy anything - fit of pique!



Reiss Kitt Stripey Fitted Knit Dress with Pocket Detail and Gold Buttons £110.00

Also I do not know why Reiss don't have their Spring/summer collection on line yet but luckily the item is on sale from ASOS and of course in Reiss stores - a birdy from the Reiss shop in Islington says they 'come up big' so go a size down from you normal one.

  1. So casual, but chic! I like it a lot. I wonder if it might make me look super wide, though.

  3. I am with you on knit dresses, but for me they come with a warning: Do not take off your padded bra! (which I do at some point AT HOME in the evening while fenangling it out through one sleeve a la Jennifer Beals in Flashdance)

    Because the "this space used to have bosoms" look with knitted stripes is not good.

    A little tip for anyone under 5'4" and around 8 stone - H&M and Zara do kid's knitted dresses that fit me! for about a quarter of the price.

    Seriously, I've been in Hamleys Dundrum every weekend promoting Irish Autism and complimenting the outfits on the tweens, then secretly noting where they got them. Bargain!

  7. Oh I love this dress, I go in and stroke it every time I go past Reiss. But I can't work with knitted dresses I'm afraid - too clingy on the tum. PS, Kate that comment above from 'Ed' is all about porn! Delete, quick!!

  8. Lovely! I saw something similar in French Connection and fell in love, disrupting my cycnicism about Nautical stripes in spring *again*.

  9. It's very sweet, but I know you can live without it. And some high street store will knock it off in no time for 3 quid.

  10. The banded long dress is trendy this year! The blue and white one is really classic.
