party in the motel

High street stores have loads of going-out-dresses, if you were looking for an outfit you couldn't not pick one up in a flash. But do you too tend to bypass them when shopping too? I wouldn't dream of wearing a H&M or River Island dress to a packed student night because you can guarantee you will see someone in the same! I have a uni friend who will buy stuff she loves but not wear it for at least a few months, and one night just after trying to persuade her to wear a new Topshop dress, the first girl we saw in the club was in it! I tend to veer towards vintage or less common shops but a website that's been cropping up in weekly fash mags lately is Motel Rocks, the website of a shop in Bristol stocking cute dresses and playsuits, perfect for going out in! All have the smocked back and flared out skirts to suit practically every shape so it's no wonder their list of celeb fans is pretty long. I like how they go into great detail about the sizing, but am a bit wary that most of the dresses are modelled with a cinched belt, disguising the real look a bit. Still, if my outfit rota starts getting thin, I'll definitely stop by Motel!
