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!

In Full Bloom with Erstwilder!

If you know anything about me you’ll know I just love flowers and nature and Erstwilder has made my dreams come true in their latest launch “In Full Bloom“. In full bloom is a collection dedicated to flowers and houseplants – from monsteras to orchids – there’s something for everyone (but let’s be real anything Erstwilder creates is just gorgeous). I got to choose four pieces from this collection and I can’t wait to share with you all of my favourites!

This collection in it’s entirety is perfectly cohesive – you can mix and match and I love the fact that there are matching earrings to brooches or necklaces to brooches. It makes me want to buy all of them! I’ve never been much of a necklace wearer but the rose and lily bunch would look perfect with so many of my outfits. Every time I look at the collection I want another piece – what piece do you love the most? I’m so excited to see what you all like!

On Sleeping Eyelids – Pansy Brooch – Designed by Carmen Hui
(Viola tricolor var. hortensis)
Pansies are one of my absolute favourite flowers so when I saw this in the collection I knew I had to have it! It’s such a gorgeous brooch, it’s purple hues and the resin used make it such a spectacular piece. It has been so hard not wearing it all of the time!! Flowers are so perfect for people that like to go with a more “classical’ vintage look and the pansy is a must have! I can’t wait until Autumn so I can grow some this year! 🙂

Opulent Orchidaceae – Designed by Carmen Hui
(Orchidaceae)
Another flower! Orchids are such a beautiful flower and perfect. I picked the ORCHID because I loved the colours of this one and it would match perfectly with the pansy (my other favourite!) Fun fact: There are over 25,000 different species of orchids on earth – isn’t that crazy??

Green Eyed Monster Brooch – Designed by Carmen Hui
(Monstera deliciosa)
This summer I have become slightly obsessed with plants and the fact that Erstwilder came out with a range of house plants is just too much! I can now wear one of my favourite things! The monstera has really been “in” for the last few years – now I can finally follow the trend but in a quirky Erstwilder way!

Show Me the Money Plant Brooch – Designed by Carmen Hui
(Epipremnum aureum)
There’s something very sinister about Devil’s Ivy – they are really hard to kill and can pretty much grow anywhere and everywhere. Also they’re moderately toxic to humans (via Wiki) so instead of hurting yourself , cats and dogs, why not wear it in brooch form? The house plants collection is perfect for all of you plant obsessed people or the plant obsessed people in your lives! They’re subtle but still super fun and informative!

A huge thank you to the team at Erstwilder for sending me these amazing brooches and for allowing me to be part of this release. I had so much fun putting all of these looks together and I’m so excited to wear each piece everyday!!

Lady Voluptuous – Lyra dress in Cute Confectionery

Lady Voluptuous – Lyra dress in Cute Confectionery

Donut worry be happy! Lady Voluptuous has recently released a new line of the amazing Lyra dress and I’m pretty dang excited. I absolutely love the Lyra dress style and I’ve reviewed it previously on my blog so when I saw the print ‘cute confectionery‘ I knew I had to have this dress. As luck would have it, when I commented on one of their stories I was asked if I’d like to collaborate and of course I said yes! If you’ve been following me awhile now you’ll know that I love Lady V London/Lady Voluptuous and have done for probably 3 years now and I feel very comfortable recommending their products to my audience – because they’re great. I own another Lyra dress in summer cherish which I reviewed with my first impressions as it was my first Lyra. All Lyra dresses are created equal – the prints just change and I’ll tell you what, my overly anxious mind really loves knowing that a product is going to have the same fit and it’s going to look just as good but in a different print – I know what works for my body and it gives me confidence in my online shopping!

OUT OF AFRICA! – ERSTWILDER

Out of Africa! The new release from one of my favourite brands; Erstwilder. If you haven’t heard of Erstwilder – where. have. you. been? Have you been hiding under a rock? Please do tell. To keep it short and sweet – Erstwilder was established in Melbourne, Australia a mere 7 years ago in 2011 and has since grown into an international accessory company selling quirky, cute and nostalgic brooches, earrings & necklaces. I have been a huge fan of Erstwilder for many years now, they really have something to offer to everyone – not just the pin-up scene. TL;DR Erstwilder is a really cool brand and they make super cool accessories, okay?

Miss Flossypots - Erstwilder - Out of Africa!

When Erstwilder got in touch with me (squee!!) for this latest collection I was pretty much bouncing off the walls (metaphorically speaking of course) and I knew all of you would be excited about this range too because: animals.
WARNING: I WILL USE THE WORD ‘CUTE’ 3 MILLION TIMES IN THIS BLOGPOST.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED….
Which brings me to their latest launch, Out of Africa. It’s pretty straight forward, this range is dedicated to the amazing animals that inhabit Africa from cheetahs to meerkats; there’s such a diverse range of animals and the designs for this range probably have to be one of my favourites. Browsing through the catalog was so much fun and I know you’re all going to love them. Please let me know your favourites!

First up: Cheetara’s Chum designed by Sally Land

Miss Flossypots - Erstwilder - Cheetara's Chum 1

As soon as I saw Cheetara’s Chum I knew it was going to be a winner (I’d get this one quick!) The colouring of the brooch is so striking it even sticks out of my leopard print dress! Cheetara’s chum is such a different take on the cheetah, it’s so bold and it’s just the right shades of yellow & mustard. And I adore cats so anything to do with feline family must be mine.

Kubu The Cutie designed by Sally Land

Miss Flossypots - Erstwilder - Kubu The Cutie 3

This has to be my favourite brooch in the whole collection! Every aspect of this design is perfect from the freckly nose, the eyelashes to the colour itself. The colour of this brooch is so unique and sticks out like a sore thumb (in a good way). I cannot wait to wear this one out and about – it could even replace my iconic fairybread piece!!! Every time I look at this piece I smile – it’s so darn cute!

Finnicky Fennec Fox designed by Sally Land

Miss Flossypots - Erstwilder - Finnicky Fennec Fox 1

Okay y’all, I need you to open up a new tab and search ‘Fennec Fox’ – you’ll thank me later. The Fennec fox is one of the most adorable animals out there, they’re so small and their ears are so big and they’re just so precious! Finnicky Fennec Fox captures the innocence of the fennec fox and is made up of the most amazing pastels and get this – iridescent resin/acrylic ears and face. I don’t know how to explain but it’s shiny and sparkly and it gives the brooch a-whole-nother dimension. This is definitely one to see in person.

And those are my picks! I highly recommend you checking out the whole range on the Erstwilder website and please, please, please let me know your favourites!! I am a huge lover of animals so this was such a great collection to work with.
Thank you so much to Erstwilder for allowing me to review these brooches – it was an honor! I can’t wait to see what you come out with next. 🙂

New Zealand Natives – Flora & Fauna – Daisy Jean Floral Designs

It’s finally New Zealand’s time to shine! This week I bring to you Daisy Jean Floral Design’s latest collection: New Zealand Natives. Daisy Jean recently reached out to me about this range and asked if I would share some with my audience and of course I jumped at the opportunity. A range dedicated to New Zealand – what’s not to love? I may be a little biased as I was born in New Zealand… So often as a small country we’re forgotten about and I think it’s super special to have a range dedicated to our native birds and flowers because they are just gorgeous.
