Weekly Wish List: A Powerful Colour Contrast

New Look Tea Dress

The Tea Dress of Dreams

Chino trousers by Topshop | Green tea dress by New Look | Daisy bracelet by Olivia Burton | Red cardigan by hush | Metallic slip-ons by Saint Laurent | Bedroom Eyes eyeshadow by NYX Professional Makeup | Red skirt by Marks and Spencer (in store and online this month) | Mustard stripe blouse by New Look | Floral dress by Self-Portrait | Khaki handbag by Next

Would you wear red and green together? I love the dramatic colour contrast, but understand it’s a tricky balance to get right. Too much red and you risk looking like a tomato!

Both hues are topping my wish list, this week, however. I’ve fallen head-over-heels for two green, floral print dresses. First up we have the flirty tea dress from New Look, which is a total bargain and is sure to sell out within an instant. And then, on the pricier end of the spectrum, sits Self-Portrait’s gorgeous off-the-shoulder design. (Side note: wouldn’t Emma Stone look divine in this pleated number? Let’s start a petition to get it on her ASAP).

Also on my radar, right now, is Next’s khaki handbag. It looks far more expensive than its £28 price tag! And I’m also struggling to resist the cheap-as-chips NYX eyeshadow in ‘Bedroom Eyes’. Sure, I don’t need another metallic shadow, but this shade is absolutely dreamy. Don’t you agree?

Will you be snapping up New Look’s pretty tea dress before it goes? And which style buys are topping your wish lists, this week? Leave a comment below to have your say…


  1. Less like a tomato, more like a Christmas tree!

    I love red and green, but you do have to get the tones right 🙂
