Flowers ~ Orange Double Roses from Daisy Jean
This is my second dress from Lady V London, my first from the Lady VoluptuousÂ range which is their plus size range and I must admit its definitely a very welcome addition to my wardrobe (you can read my first review by clicking here). Lady V London/Lady Voluptuous is a UK based brand that specialising in fun prints in swing and wiggle style dresses. Their cuts are timeless, flattering across a range of figures and comfortable. Their dresses feature conventional ‘pretty’ pinup prints in florals as well as fun different prints like the Bohemian Tiger print Ursula dress. It was this unusual print that drew me to this stunning dress.
The Ursula cut of dress is a stunning V ‘wrap’ front style bust, which allows for cleavage with also offering some coverage. The skirt is a swing style with some front pleats that are great for smoothing the hips and tummy. This dress is also super flattering with or without a petticoat on due to these pleats. This dress features a back zip that didn’t catch and zipped with ease. The short sleeves also offer some upper arm coverage for gals who prefer sleeved styles to sleeveless.
This Bohemian Tiger print is also so beautiful. I love the play of colours through this pattern. The main focus of this pattern is the water colour tigers head, but this print also features other goodies like pineapples, tropical leaves, peacock fathers, hibiscus and lotus flowers. The colours are so fun and varied which makes it such fun to accessorize! For this shoot I had fun teaming it with navy and orange, who colours that play strongly through the print.
I’m so grateful to the amazing retro community that have helped me find myself in my mid to late 20s. For making such beautiful clothes that we can enjoy and wear to help embrace our own unique beauty and I love being able to share that with you all! And not just brands that cater to our pinup love but also who cater to curvier girls as well! Fabulous brands like Lady Volup help ladies of all sizes shine bright.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this review lovelies!Â
