It’s been a while since I wrote a whole blog post around one outfit but this special dress deserved it, and sharing is caring. Recently I was contacted by a brand new Aussie plus size label ‘Lillianna Plus’, they’re getting ready to launch (next week) and were kind enough to give me a sneak peek of their new line.
Even better, they kindly sent me some pieces (that I chose) to road-test. As soon as I opened the happy mail I was in styling heaven. Autumn colours-tick ✓bohemian vibe-tick ✓floaty dress-tick ✓fits- tick ✓ Tick, tick, tickety tick ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓
I love a dress because it’s a complete outfit, throw it on, add footwear and layers and you’re good to go. YES, layers…I love you Autumn♥
Personally I’m mad for ankle boots with a dress and at the first sign of an Autumn breeze I’m packing away Summer sandals and pulling out my Winter boots. Are you the same?
When I unwrapped this *print dress I immediately had a ‘trying on session’, grabbing belts n boots and styling it several different ways. I love a little floaty bohemian dress but when you’re curvy like me they aren’t easy to find, so when I find one I love…I love it hard!
This dress has a tassel tie in the front, floaty sleeves, a slightly ruffled hem and a print that makes my heart beat faster. It also has all the colours of autumn. I’ve styled it by plucking the lighter oatmeal colour (which also happens to be my hair colour), and added a knit long line vest and boots to match.
You can totally wear this dress without a belt, although it’s a little shapeless, but I dug deep in the wardrobe and found my all time favourite belt. I slung it low on my hips (it’s a pinch more snug than it used to be) and flounced the dress a little and suddenly I was channelling a gypsy.
Then I removed the belt, while still keeping the vest….
What do you think? Do you like it?
You know I’m totally going to try this dress with chambray don’t you! I can also see it with a faux fur vest, denim jacket, puffer vest and even leggings. Heck you could even pop it over your skinny leg jeans.
Inspired? I hope so, autumn is here and it’s time to embrace it. EDIT, Lilliannaplus is now live, click HERE.
Til next time,
