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!

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.
