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 dressmaker 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.

What do you think of the dress? How would you style it?

Thank you so much for reading and till next time,
Carolin
