One Of My Long Loved Dresses
This lovely dress was my #OOTD (Outfit of the day) on the second day of Plus North. I have had this Lady Vintage London for ages and am still absolutely in love with it, like I was from the very first second. However, somehow up till now it had not made it’s way onto my blog yet. Although this is the dress I am wearing in my header picture on the top right.
The Lady Vintage Tea Dress
I have worn this dress a thousand times and it is and will always be one of my dresses. To be honest you just can’t beat polka dots . Polka dots are just a timeless classic and an amazing throwback to the 50s. The cut of this dress not only just really comfortable but also very figure flattering, especially with a thin belt. I also love to wear it with a cardigan, which goes really well with it, for the chillier days.
A Plea To Lady Vintage London
So I can only plea:
Dear Lady Vintage London, I plead with you, please offer your tea dresses again in sizes larger than 22.
If you do, I can promise you I will most likely very soon own one of them in almost every single pattern of the plus-size tea dresses you will offer.
In Love With The Colour
I am absolutely loving the colour of this dress, especially after I was for years I not able to wear blue as it basically made me look “dead” complexionwise. This changed when I dyed my hair darker. The happier Iam now how well this lovely blue still goes with my new orange hair and actually even nicely “pops” the orange colour due to the strong contrast.
Where You Can Get (A Similar) Dress
If you are one of those lucky people that fit in a size 22 or below, here is where you get them, maybe not in polka dots but in a lot of other lovely patterns. While they offer neither the tea dresses in the larger sizes nor the tea dresses in polka dots anymore, Lady Vintage London has recently released quite a few polka dot dresses in the larger sizes (going up to a 32), which you can get here.
One of those cuts offered now in polka dots is the lovely “Estella Dress” which I absolutely love and bought in several patterns as soon as it came out (some of which are not offered anymore). Now that it is available also in polka dots I might be tempted again. Although owning one dress in 4-5 different patterns (currently 3) might border to madness. I am actually considering wearing one version of this dress to the upcoming Plus Size Fashion Days in Hamburg
“Flawless” by Missguided
On this day I was also showing off my new “Flawless” earrings from Missguided. A company that is most likely not on most of your radars. While in several interviews they have stated that a plus-size range is very likely to follow at some point, up till now they offer a clothing range up to a size 18.
However, I have currently really discovered them as a great place for shoe and especially jewellery. To me they are becoming, despite being a fast fashion retailer, bit by bit a real replacement for my favourite jewellery shop in Germany, Bijou Brigitte, which I still dearly miss since I moved to the UK.
I love these earrings. The hoopstyle reminds a bit of the 90s but they also have something 50sy about them of which I can’t quite put my fingers on yet, but I do like whatever that is. They went bang on with my outfitand and especially my hair on that day, but most importantly, the “Flawless” statement” sends a great and important body positive message!
What Do You Think?
Would you like Lady Vintage London to bring back their tea dress in the plus sizes? What do you think about Missguided and have you ordered from them before?
I would love to hear from you.
