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!
Disclaimer: GIFTED Although the Goldie dress from Lady V London was sent to 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.
Well, well, well… I’m back with another Lady V London dress because once again they have kicked it out of the park! If you haven’t been keeping up with me (for the past TWO years) you won’t know that I absolutely love Lady V London. I could go on and on about my love for them (and I will) but to get more of an idea of what Lady V London brings to the table you can check out my previous reviews of the Lyra Dress, Eloise Dress & the Butterfly Border Tea Dress. Lady V London is a brand I love working with but also a brand I actually shop with and wholeheartedly believe in the product, that’s why I get super excited when that dress arrives at my house – I know it’s going to be fantastic.
Well I’m back with another Lady V London review but this time it’s different! This time I’m calling it a first impressions review, I’ve seen this idea in Youtube videos and I’m sure there have been many blog posts but I’ve never done this before! This week I’ll share my first impressions on the Lady V London Lyra Dress in the Summer Cherish print; what I like about it, why I purchased it, how it feels and the fit – like a review but without the commitment, ha!
As you saw from my previous Lady V London review I had wanted a Lyra dress for a long time but as far as I knew they were only in sizes 16 + but thankfully Lady V London recently released the Lyra dress in a size 14! But what had really sold it to me was my best friend Xamia Arc buying her first Lyra (in Leopard – read her post here); once she told me she had bought hers I bought mine the next day! She’s such an enabler but she’s always right about these things! Continue reading “The Lyra Dress – Lady V London – First Impressions”→
Well, y’all know I love some Lady V London! And this week I get the great privilege of showing you one of Lady V London’s Spring/Summer new releases. We are heading into our colder weather (Autumn for us New Zealanders) but I find pretty much all of Lady V’s dresses can be worn through all seasons – trust me, I do it! I personally only work with brands I 100% truly believe in and Lady V London is definitely one. I have loved Lady V London for years (possibly one of my longest loves in the vintage reproduction world). I own five dresses that I wear regularly; in fact, I consider them a staple in my wardrobe and I genuinely love their passion for great products, service & quality.
Autumn has arrived and with that the days feel shorter and the nights feel so much colder. To combat the drabness of Autumn I’ve decided to dress head to toe in spring-wear; colour, sunhats and bare legs (rebellious, I know) with cute cardigans like this one from Doll Me Up Inc. Another item I feel that encapsulates warmer days is my new Sun Jellies Atomic bag in lilac; it’s design allows it to be the perfect everyday bag and keeps my outfits light and fun.
If you follow me on Instagram (@missflossypots #shamelessplug) you will see that I have fallen for the Sun Jellies brand hard; if you’ve never owned a Sun Jellies original I highly recommend you do immediately. My only regret is that I didn’t get a tote sooner; all of those trips to the supermarket and having to lug uncomfortable plastic bags up hill – my hands could have been saved from that nightmare! The Atomic Tote has an awesome feature that allows you to clip the handles together for comfortable handling and I saw on their Instagram that you can swivel the clip part around so the top of the tote can clip in for better security; so versatile! Now let’s talk storage; this baby can get A LOT in it at 40x45x16cm, I can fit my huge camera bag in it which is a HUGE advantage to me; I despise the ugliness of my black camera bag and now I can disguise it in a lilac dream. All in all I freaking LOVE it and now I want an Atomic Tote in every colour!
Also I have seriously been loving Lady V London as soon as I received my Lilac tote I went straight on the Lady V London website and snapped up this beauty within five minutes. I never thought of wearing purple but I am starting to gain a bit of a purple collection and I’m not even a little bit mad about it. If you’re unsure about purchasing from Lady V London – just bite the bullet because you seriously won’t regret it. I have had so much wear out of my two dresses (I will be adding more). This style is called a tea dress which does come a bit up shorter than most of the typical fifties styled swing skirts but I combat that by rolling my petticoat up and you can also get away with no petticoat (I do this for work sometimes) the skirt is gathered ever so slightly so it lays nicely on my hips. And they’re ethically made in England!!
What are some of your favourites at the moment? I am obsessed with this outfit I’m probably going to wear it a million times this month. ALSO I will be heading up to Auckland at the end of the month so please leave some shopping/food recommendations; I’m a complete novice when it comes to Auckland! And I will be blogging the whole trip – would you like me to take OOTD photos? Let me know below!
