Fashion: Blue Vanilla OOTD Style Post

Blue Vanilla shift dress

Happy Easter to you all and I'm sorry Thursday's post had to move to today. A cold struck me down for a few days but I'm fine now and hope everyone enjoys the holidays. I don't want to keep you away too long for the Easter family fun, that's why today's post is just a quick style post filled with pictures. Hope you'll enjoy.

The Blue Vanilla dress* (via EtailPR) was sent to me a while ago and when I first wore it, it didn't suit me at all. It literally had no tailoring and though it's a small size, it would hang like a linen sack from my shoulders (should have taken pictures, but forgotten to do so) - not very flattering! I brought it to the dress maker and she was able to fix it. She fitted the dress to my measurements and tailored it nicely. It is still a bit casual but has a lovely shape now. You can either team it up with a collarless coat or wear it on its own with some accessories.

Here’s what I’m wearing:

Dress: Blue Vanilla* (similar style, £22)
Shoes: Primark (summer season 2012/2013, £4)
Collarless Jacket: Pimkie (current spring season 2015, 60€/£50)
Watch Necklace: Dorothy Perkins (spring season 2010, £12)
Bag: Kate Spade via Bicester Village (current season 2015, £79)

I love that the dress is made of a thick material which makes it similar to a tapestry dress and you can wear it for those chilly spring days.

Thank you so much for reading today's post and I hope, you'll be joining me on my next adventure. What do you think of the dress? How would you style it?

Till next time,

  6. Thick black leggings really are a life saver with this Spring weather. The dress looks fabulous on you x

  7. It's a lovely dress and great you were able to get it fit to you! How much did it cost to get it tailored? I have loads of dresses that don't fit me right.
