This is the dress my dreams are made of.
I have been on the hunt for a vintage style dress in my size for the longest time. I have come across a few but they have always been in a jersey fabric, which is fine when it comes to fast fashion but I wanted something that was going to last me years.
When I heard on the blogger grapevine that Lady V London were releasing a vintage dress in a number of prints in a size 30/32 I was over the moon.
The Estella Dresses are available here! and were designed by the gorgeous Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust
I bought the Estella in the black and white polkadot as I knew it would be very easy to style and I could wear it practically anywhere.
When the cupcake print Estella was released on the website I was literally screaming “Oh my God, Oh my God” Two of my favourite things combined just for me… Surely a gift from the Angels!!! I went on the site and bought the cupcake dress without a second thought… just look at it… I had to!
The Estella dresses are 97% Cotton and 3% Elastane, the quality is so good and I feel like they are a total investment, I plan on taking really good care of the ones I have so they will last forever. A problem I find being my size is that it is very difficult to find good quality clothes that are a good fit, I know the bigger I am the more my body will vary from someone else who wears the same dress size. The Estella Dress feels like it was made for my body, the little bit of elastane allows the dress to hug you in just the right places but still has enough structure to fit how it is meant to.
I am really hoping to see more of these dresses coming out and I would especially like to see the dress in some solid colours.
