But apparently I never got this memo. I love stripes, especially black and white stripes. I first saw this dress back in September 2016 when I attended The Curve Fashion Festival in Liverpool and saw this gorgeous fashionista wearing the most amazing striped dress and later came to learn it was Samantha Campbell. At the time Samantha was just starting up her own clothing company called Sazzmatazz Clothing. Sazzmatazz is for “the woman who doesn’t compromise her curves for style. Limited Edition Unique pieces that can’t be found anywhere else.” I knew the dress would have to be mine. Thanks to me it was nearly a whole 10 months until I got it. Believe me though when I tell you it was worth the wait.
The 95% knit cotton / 5% spandex mix makes this dress really lightweight and airy as well as cool. There is very little stretch in the dress. I purchased it in a size 24 (my usual size) and would say I found it true to size. I managed to pull it on over my head without undoing the zip.
I’m 5’4” and the dress sat between mid calf and ankle. The sleeves were just about my wrists which was perfect for me. My most favourite thing about this dress is it has POCKETS. I adore a dress with pockets!
I really like the contrast of horizontal and vertical stripes. Really does makes the dress eye catching. I’m wearing it with a little pair of block heeled black shoes from Simply Be but I think the possibilities are endless. It is such a versatile dress. It can be glammed up with heels and jewellery or casualed down with pumps and a jean jacket. The best bit is this dress is currently on clearance. Sazzmatazz is due to introduce their new line at the end of July. This was previously selling for £38.99 and is a total bargain at £20. If you are quick the discount code “GIVEME5” will give you an additional £5 off. Shipping is free and takes 3-5 days. So at just £15 I’d say get your orders in fast before they sell out!
