If you have read my blog before then you will know I am a massive fan of the Estella dress by Lady V London and Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust. I honestly feel that the Estella dress was something quite revolutionary - in that you just can't find pretty, vintage style clothing in sizes 28+.
Lady V London were kind enough to send me a dress to the British Plus Size Awards - which you can read all about here. I initially wanted an Estella dress but unfortunately you all loved them so much that they sold out in my size. Lady V London actually offer 3 plus size dresses - the Isabella and the Hepburn alongside the Estella. I looked at the measurements for the Hepburn and even though it's 2 sizes smaller, the way it is cut means the they weren't too much smaller than the Estella style I was so in love with.
They sent me the Violent Violet Poppy Hepburn dress and I was over the moon when it fitted. I love the shape of the dress and the pattern is not one I have seen much before at all. I probably would benefit from a size up was available, but once again it just goes to show that you can ignore labels and make 'too small' clothing fit you.
I went to the awards with Lucia from U Can't Wear That who managed to bag the Estella Damask print dress before they all went - she looked lovely!
I have 3 Lady V London dresses now and I haven't a problem with any of them. I have always loved fast, affordable, bargain priced fashion. However an investment piece like this is far more likely to make my wardrobe than it did before and that is all down to the quality offered by Lady V London.
I wait with baited breath to see what other Estella patterns they bring out next!
As part of their Black Friday Deals, Lady V London have up to 60% off of dresses until midnight. I snapped up an Isabella to complete my Lady V London collection. When it gets here I will have at least one of each of their dresses... Review coming soon, of course!
