Dress of the Day: Gingham print bubble dress from New Look

Gingham_dress We know some of you aren’t too keen on the ol’ bubble hems, and to be completely honest with you, they’re not our favourite style in the world either. But if we were in the market for a bubble-hemmed dress, we think we’d probably just throw caution to the wind and buy this gingham print dress from New Look. It has a kind of "country" feel about it that makes us think of summer meadows and picnics on hot days, and who doesn’t like summer meadows and picnics, we ask you?

This is only £16 at New Look, so if you do love the bubbles, take a look at it here.

    I don’t know about this one. It looks like the perfect thing for accessorizing with ruby slippers and prancing down the yellow brick road. Which is, you know, not something most of us are likely to be doing any time soon, I’m almost sure.

    the dress looks very cute here and on new look’s website, but i just came back from the store and it looks hideous!!! 🙁 the dress is so short (and i’m only 5’4″) even before the bubble bit! they have a few other stripey dresses that look much nicer, but this one is a no-no….
