Meet Taking Shape!




Coat: c/o Taking Shape. Jeggings: Excite Clothing. Dress: Matalan. Scarf: Primark. 

What now seems like an age ago I was contacted in regards to a well known Australia and New Zealand 
 brand with oodles (yes I said oodles) of experience which has newly launched in the UK. This brand of course is named Taking Shape! They carry a number of brands to suit an array of lovely ladies. In my eyes I'm probably the youngest of there spectrum but when looking through the site I did see a few pieces I know would work brilliantly within my current eclectic wardrobe including this Highland Rose Top!

I was lucky enough to be asked to choose something from the site and when I saw this coat I couldn't resist. I've been looking for a new winter coat since last year after I realised my previously beloved duffle was more snug than I wished for it to be. I went for a size 22 as I've been feeling like my size has fluctuated within stores lately (whether that's due to all the crisps I eat or companies sizing I can't decide!) so I size up but once it arrived I realised I really needed have worried about it as a size 20 would have fitted fine with room for a jumper underneath! Luckily for me the 22 doesn't look like it's swamping me so I'm happy with that all I've got to do is take the arms up a little because I have short arms! I styled this with my beloved tartan scarf which I haven't stopped wearing since I bought it at the start of September. My new dress I picked up from Matalan yesterday for a fiver and my insanely comfortable leggings from excite clothing!

Taking Shapes price points are a whole range depending on what you're looking for. I'd say the pieces are made to last and be worn often as the first thing I do when I get a garment is check the stitching (problems of being a fashion design student!) and I have to say this coat is beautiful made, so I'm super impressed! 

Have you checked out what Taking Shape have to offer and seen anything that's taken your fancy? Let me know in the comments below!
