Lady V London – The Goldie Dress in Cupid’s Rose

What kind of year would it be if I weren’t to collaborate with the lovely team from Lady V London? A terrible one! I started working with Lady V London in November 2016 #throwback – when I was just starting out and since then I have collaborated with them FOUR times!! In that time I have purchased from them and I can honestly say that I still love what they are all about. They’re affordable, good quality, ethically made (in London), size inclusive and they have a huge range of prints and styles suitable for everyone. And now it’s 2019 and I’m back with a Lady V London Outfit of the Day. This time it’s a new twist on the classic tea dress – IT HAS SLEEVES and it’s called The Goldie Dress! Cute little frilly sleeves that cover just the right amount so that your arms don’t get too cold in the fresh spring / autumn air or too hot when we get to summer.

The Goldie Dress in Cupid’s Rose – Who knew a simple sleeve would transform a whole design? I do now and my life is so much better for it. I can’t wait until we hit spring (so far away, I can’t handle it) so I can wear this dress to picnics with white sandals and a big floppy hat. If you have had the standard Tea dress from Lady V London you will know that they hit just at the knee, a little shorter than most traditional reproduction dresses and Goldie is no different, I quite like that as it gives it a modern twist – however, I would love to get my hands on a shorter petticoat that would sit right underneath it (please comment if you know of a good quality short petticoat). If you’re not a fan of petticoats (I know there are people that don’t like petticoats #shock #horror) the Goldie sits nicely without one, it’s a little gathered and sits really well on the hips. The Goldie dress has to be my favourite design now.

The Cupid’s Rose print really stood out to me on their website, it really has a vintage vibe to it – there’s something about bigger prints that I like so much more than smaller print. I feel like you don’t really need to accessorize, it really just speaks for itself. The Goldie dress is made up from 95% Polyester 5% Elastine – which means you don’t have to iron it and there’s a little bit of stretch if you’re between sizes. I went for a size 12 – 36 – bust and 30 inch waist, I’m between sizes so I think I could definitely fit into a size 10 but due to personal reasons I can’t wear anything too tight around my waist so the 12 is perfect for me! Just remember to measure yourself and check the sizing chart when ordering a new dress – this is so important.

A big thank you to the team at Lady V London (and the lovely Bryony) for sending me another gorgeous piece, I’m always delighted to work with Lady V London as I always get a well constructed and unique dress – and it always gets here quickly! I have worked with Lady V but I have also been a customer and I know for a fact that there isn’t any difference in the quality and the shipping times. I am a fan – if ya can’t tell!

Peter Rabbit & Other Stories – Erstwilder Collection

Hop, skip & a jump! Welcome to the new range “Peter Rabbit & Other Stories” from Erstwilder in collaboration with our favourite childhood classics author Beatrix Potter. The incredibly talented Melbourne based team Erstwilder has done it again with another fabulous launch, this time taking Peter Rabbit & friends from illustration to life with resin cut brooches, earrings & a necklace!

As always Erstwilder has out done themselves, each piece from this launch is P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N filled with whimsy and the beautiful colours that we all associate with the Beatrix Potter tales. Each brooch comes with a special edition gift box and swing tag (of the original Peter Rabbit illustration). As you all know I have worked with Erstwilder in the past and this time is no different, I was #gifted three pieces from this range and it was an incredibly hard choice to make! I ultimately picked my favourites from childhood but I think I’ll be purchasing quite a few on launch day (especially Jemima – I NEED Jemima!!) Who have you bought? & Did you grow up reading the timeless tales by Beatrix Potter?

Benjamin Bunny
Benjamin Bunny is Peter Rabbits cousin or how I see it.. partner in crime – I personally believe Benjamin is the most mischievous out of the two. Benjamin was the naughty bunny who coerced poor Peter into going back to Mr. McGregor’s garden which ended up with Peter & Benjamin under a flowerpot with Mr. McGregor’s cat asleep on top of it! Benjamin Bunny will always be a favourite of mine with my brother having the same name – he’s equally as mischievous!

Mrs Tittlemouse
“She’s a terribly tidy, particular little mouse, always sweeping and dusting the soft sandy floors. If only those visitors didn’t leave such a mess.” Erstwilder had it spot on with Mrs. Tittlemouse’s bio – after rereading the Tales of Mrs. Tittlemouse I can honestly say I really resonate with her, as a child I thought she was rather mean but as I get into my mid twenties I can relate with her wanting a tidy house and no visitors!!!! Anyone else? Am I turning into Mrs. Tittlemouse? I definitely don’t think that’s a bad thing; look at that super cute outfit!

Tom Mittens
I LOVE this story. The tale of Tom Mittens is one of my favourites; it had me giggling like I did when I first read the story. I love a naughty cat and Tom and his sisters (Mittens & Moppet) did not disappoint. In the tale of Tom Mittens, the three kittens go out and ruin their fine attire (that mother, Tabitha Twitchit expressly told them to keep clean for visitors) and the clothes end up on the Puddle-ducks ( I love a crossover especially in the Beatrix Potter world). I’m huge fan of this brooch and I have a sneaking suspicion that this guy is going to sell out fast!!

So what do you think? Who’s your favourite? I can honestly say I don’t have a favourite because I love mine equally – all their stories are so cheeky and I just love each character in their own way. A huge thank you to Erstwilder for allowing me to go down memory lane with this fabulous and nostalgic range. It was so much fun and I really can’t wait to see everyone’s reactions!! I highly recommend rereading all of Beatrix Potter’s works, after you check out Erstwilder’s website of course!! ;P
