Lady V London



Lady V London vintage dresses
This print reminds me of Carrie's dress in the 1st Sex and the City movie, where all the girls were at the auction for Samantha's ring. The rich reds and floral print gave me that feel. Anyways, I wore this dress to a Natural Hair Expo in Oakland this weekend. I literally received compliments on it left and right. I always note compliments on my clothing (and you should too) given on a piece that I'm wearing.  It's always helps to validate when I'm doing something right.  You can use that as a building tool for your own personal style.  If people continue to say that you look good in a particular outfit. silhouette, and/or color then you probably do.  Build off of that and include elements of that look in your everyday wear. Fit & flare dresses, like Lady V London's, often look good on most body types and I often include and recommend them often when women want to create that hourglass shape.  

Lady V London offers this adorable frock and other vintage inspired designs for plus, as well as, regular sizes. I've actually been familiar with the brand for a long time.  I stocked boutiques with their dresses and styled my clients (one who won Miss Texas Plus America, I might add) in Lady Vintage.  So when they reached out to me to collaborate on post, I was elated. It's always great when brands that you already know and adore, reach out to you.  The lady like silhouettes and feminine prints grab my attention every time.  The fabric feels as wonderful as it looks.  Be sure to check them out here.  

Style Note:  Lady V London is a UK based company with UK sizing.  I got a size UK 22, which is about a U.S. size 18/20.  Definitely use the measurements the site provides to help determine what size you where.  UK sizes generally are 1 - 2 sizes smaller than the U.S. The fabric of this dress didn't have any stretch, so be mindful of that when ordering. Again, I loved the fabric! It was flowy, but heavy at the same time.  This also comes with a waist sash, but you know me.   I love to add my own belts.

  1. I love how edgy you've made this outfit with the studded belt. It's both feminine AND fierce! So cute.

    1. I've ordered multiple times before and haven't had any issues. The shipments take a little bit longer because of it being international, but it wasn't too bad. For the Miss Plus Texas, we were on a time crunch it was apart of a costume and it was going to take time to get it together. I was ordering so much stuff for this client, but this was one of the first things to arrive, surprisingly. I wasn't expecting that. I'm thinking it took no more than a 1 and a half.
