As you all know I love dresses so that must mean I’m back with another dress feature! With seasons changing and New Zealand transitioning from Autumn to Winter ( it’s officially winter but I’m still in denial) I’ve been looking at my wardrobe. Do I have much catered for these seasons? No, of course not but I’ll tell you what – don’t underestimate my ability to layer! One thing I have been looking at has to be colour palettes and for awhile now I have had a wee obsession with burgundy reds and forest greens so when Dolly & Dotty reached out to me I knew exactly what would fill the gap in my wardrobe!
I must make a confession for the longest time I disliked the colour red… that was until I changed my hair to a copper colour and now I cannot get enough of it!! I am a such a fan of Dolly & Dotty and have worked with them in the past so I knew exactly what kind of quality I was going to get and I knew the delivery time would be quick! My previous post with Dolly & Dotty was the Lily dress in a floral print and I can honestly say I wear it probably once a week – it’s in regular rotation so it’s definitely a winner. As I love the Lily style from my previous review so much I thought I would snatch it up again but in a classic red as it can be worn casually or for a night on the town!
The Lily dress in burgundy red fits like a glove – I love the fact that the dress has a zipper on the back (hallelujah) and it has two decent sized pockets! It’s a classic 1950’s silhouette, it cinches you in at the waist and flares out to a mid-calf length. The skirt is super full and paneled so you can definitely fit a petticoat underneath with room to spare. Dolly & Dotty offer every-day to evening pieces that are affordable but look amazing – the lily dress shown here retails at $77.24 NZD. It washes well (I washed mine on a normal cycle) which is always a massive relief when it comes to our dresses – you just never know! I think the quality is divine and I can safely say my other pieces from Dolly & Dotty are in amazing condition even with tons of wear!
Thank you so much to Dolly & Dotty for helping me expand my wardrobe with a piece that I’m literally going to wear throughout the year. All I can say is #pinupchristmas!
Although the Lily Dress from Dolly and Dotty was sent me all my thoughts & opinions are honest and my own. I do not accept products without researching brands beforehand and that aren’t suitable for me or my readers.
