Quiz Clothing in Menorca

Quiz Blue Maxi Dress Size 16

Quiz Clothing was not a brand I had shopped with before. Their online presence not as dominant in the blogosphere as say BooHoo and when I'd pass the branch during my frequent trips to Westfield I wrote it off as being one of those shops girls somewhat younger than myself purchase from. In fact my most overriding 'memory' of Quiz Clothing was my friends and I being fascinated that they had a branch in The Dubai Mall. That is until recently when they got in touch and asked if I'd like to review something from their new Occasion Wear line.

Whilst I am always interested in trying something new I was a little apprehensive. I am not a fashion blogger, although keen to explore the opportunity but more importantly I was concerned my curvy figure can make picking the right clothing size problematic. And then of course would I like the clothing based on my previous misconceptions?

Whilst there were some fabulous looking evening dresses available I did not have any such occasion on the horizon but my trip to Menorca was looming so I chose the Aqua Flower Print Chiffon Maxi Dress* which I thought would be perfect for my trip.

I ordered in a size 16 which is my 'typical' size and it was a perfect fit and I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on at how the dress felt in quality and appearance. I thought to myself how appropriate it would be for my holiday when I'd be indulging in food and drink and it's loose fit meant that I'd have some 'breathing room' for any extra holiday pounds I gained.

For travel it was ideal, the chiffon fabric did not crease and I was able to simply roll and pop into my suitcase safe in the knowledge there would be no need for an iron on arrival. Even better was the evening I put this on as we headed to the town of Binibeca my friends asked if the dress was Ted Baker. At £29.99 (although you can grab this at the sale price of £14.99) it was as far removed from the price of Ted Baker but I was quite pleased to note that on appearance it gave the impression it was.

I paired the dress with a chunky necklace in a peachy orange shade that complimented my Michael Kors pouch (my holiday essential!). I did try to investigate a belt to draw in my waist a little and in hindsight I wish I'd looked into a rope style as I think that would've worked although I was keen not to have too much going on.

In summary my first experience of Quiz Clothing has been positive. I often find that being a size 16 and have lumps and bumps to conceal that I need to spend a little more on my clothes to ensure thicker fabrics cover my sins but it has been proved this is not the case. In fact so taken am I with this dress I'm already eyeing up the Navy and Red option currently available. I think it's time to step into that Quiz branch at Westfield.

Have you shopped with Quiz before?
