A few weeks ago the people at Love Ur Look contacted me asking if I wanted to try out one of their dresses. My everyday dresses are on the verge of retiring, I'll pack them away soon so they don't completely deteriorate, so the offer came at a perfect time. I'm trying to incorporate more vintage reproduction items in my wardrobe, that I can wear everyday, and not fear ruining forever! So hopefully you'll see more features and reviews in the future of items you can get new, but still look very vintage.
I chose the Floral Wrap Dress because one thing that deters me from buying reproduction items is the fit! My bust to waist ratio is larger than 10", and most modern clothing caters to a smaller ratio than that, but wrap dresses are a little more versatile.
As soon as I put it on I was really happy with the fit, and the little details like hooks and eyes at the bust for extra security.
The dress is cotton, and fully lined in cotton, I love that! And I love the small detail of the buttons matching the rose print :)
There is a hook and eye at the skirt to keep it closed, but I found it unnecessary as it just unhooked throughout the day as I sat on the ground, knelt down, etc. No matter though, I wear slips or bloomers with wrap dresses anyway.
Overall I really love the dress, and have worn it multiple times already! It's a great everyday dress: alone it works for home and errands, and a nice hat and gloves will dress it up nicely for going out :)
And as promised, more detailed photos of my hair!
It was done by Kristen Behlings, she's simply magical, and if you'll recall, I have bangs! Can you tell? Because I forgot I did with this style.
I'll try to recreate it, but it won't look a thing like her work!
