I had a very busy Easter weekend and I have eaten far too much chocolate so tonight I am going to hit the gym!
On Good Friday, I decided on a road trip to Leamington Spa to visit my closest Taking Shape store, I had a £10 voucher from the Capturing the Curve event organised by the ever so glamorous Betty Pamper so I had to use it!
To be honest, I wasn't sure about this store, I visited the website and I couldn't see anything that catch my attention but I have read posts from other bloggers and I thought I have a voucher I may as well use it.
The truth is that I thought it was going to be a bit old-fashioned for me.
Anyway, I browse the rails and I grabbed a few things I liked, I could tell straight away it wasn't cheap and the fabrics felt really nice.
While I was doing this, the shop assistants were so lovely recommending stuff and helping me take the pile of clothes to a fitting room, so there was no way back I had to try it on!
I have put some pictures below of all the stuff I tried, everything fit quite well and most of the dresses were really flattering (really!!) to my shape, if only they were a bit too long (but it's an Australian brand and I am only 5'2 tall so I bet the average Australian woman is taller than me).
I have added as many links as possible.
They also had a nice sale going on, some reduced items and 20% of full price stuff, plus the necklaces which are A-MAZING and were buy one get one half price and most of them reduced to £5!.
Their size range goes from size UK14 to 26 but I will say the sizing is in the generous/big side.

|I bought this dress, I loved the colours and shape, It was on the sale at £29. You can buy the Purple Reign dress here.|
|Napa dress - £45|
|Lexa Dress - £45|
|Can't find this one online but I really love the colours and shape, and it has a pocket!|
|Bella Vista trousers £29|
|Tortoise trousers £39 - I bought those ones!|
|I loved this one on the hanger not so sure on me as my skin colour clashed a bit|
|Some of the amazing necklaces!|
A lady was trying the last one they had in the shop and is really eye catching I love the fringe detail.
So what do you think, will you give Taking Shape a go?
This post has not been sponsored and I paid for my items but I am really happy with the clothes and the lovely shop staff so I will definitely will keep an eye in this new brand in the UK (they have been going forever in Australia). Ahh I also got some freebies: a cute nail set purse and a nail file in a little case.
