Ever since I saw that Valentino dress on the catwalk I’ve been smitten. Everyone knows I love colour, but what I love even more than colour in general is a graphic print in any hue. I’ve been looking all over for something similarly striking in size fat but the closest thing I’ve found is the dress above which is from Yours Clothing. I tried it on in a size 28, it fit and its comfy, but its about 2, 3 inches shorter than I would like and sits above the knee but you can’t tell that from the photo above. However, its still a great dress. I’ve found some other dresses in quirky black and white prints that I’ve listed below but if you find anything else, please drop in a link in the comments!
To quote Ice Cube- Today was a good day.
The first time my eyes beheld this colourful camo dress was at the Evans Spring Summer Preview and I knew immediately that I was going to own it. Bought online last week, collected in store yesterday, and on my bod this morning. No dust is settling on this number. No fussy accessories needed apart from my day to day silver fly studs by Silver Spot Studio…
…and my black New Look wedges from last year. The fabric is a knitted polyester/ lycra blend in a substancial weight that is smooth to touch. A quality YKK zip runs along the back (YKK is the bees knees of zippers if you didn’t already know) and there are contrast lace panels at the side front and back of the bodice. With the contrast panel across the middle too and the camo print there is a lot going on but it doesn’t feel fussy.
This has immediately become one of my favourite dresses. People around me- be prepared to be sick of seeing it.
