I have expressed my love for Brandalley before, but if you’re not familiar with the website, it organises flash sales and it’s a great place to find designer items at a lower price.
Brandalley is currently hosting a Firetrap sale, including a range of great dresses, most of them now around £20. Hurry though as the Firetrap sale ends this Sunday 23rd October. (Remember you will need to sign up before being able to access the sales or any of the links in this post)
My two favourites:
This dress is perfect if you’re looking to work the current grunge revival trend. I have ordered this one and will be teaming it with a black leather jacket and black leather biker boots.
Black/Red Stripe Midi Jersey Dress by Firetrap at Brandalley
Was £50 Now £20
This dress is so effortlessly stylish it hurts. The way it drapes around the model’s frame is perfection and the embellishment at the neckline gives it just a little bit of edge that makes all the difference. Now, the weather might be a little too chilly to wear this dress right now, but it won’t go out of style and you’ll be wearing it all summer.

There is a lot going on with this pair of shorts – big pockets, turned up hems, stripes, and a big bow! – so I chose to go for simple pieces to compliment it. There was also the issue of it being described as Mint Ticking Bow Stripe Shorts on the Miss Selfridge website – surely “mint” means green, but they look pretty grey to me! So just to be on the safe side, I chose a colour palette that would flatter either colour.
I started by adding a simple white vest but to keep things interesting, chose one with some subtle embellishment – the macrame detailing teamed with the braided straps of the gladiator sandals help create a bit of a relaxed bohemian feel, and so I decided to push it a little further by adding accessories that clearly take their inspiration from India. The result is a cute, feminine, casual summer look that will look great against a tan.
