Read what fashion stylist Bev at Iris May style has to say about our Aiesha dress, the perfect Black dress and one of our signiture styles.....
"I believe a simple, flattering LBD should be a true staple in every girl's wardrobe.—
It’s a piece I often struggle with to get ‘just right’ though.
Some part of the design often won't quite work for me (I blame my pear shaped butt and thighs).
Yep, I do like my LBD’s to fit and skim in all the right places.
Fabric weight plays a huge role in nailing this aspect.
As does cut.
But even classic pieces deserve a touch of ‘edgy’ to make them come alive - and this my friends is exactly what I look for!
This LBD ticks all of the boxes.
So much so, that I messaged Marianna (designer) to see if she would consider making this fab dress in NAVY (that way, if black is not your colour, navy is sure to tick the box).
Me? I just want both - I’m greedy like that 😝🙋🏼♀️
The design of this dress is genius though.
Let’s break it down:
The PERFECT sleeve length (so many sleeves finish at the wrong spot for us girls who no longer have perfect arms). Fabric: Viscose/Jersey (the word ‘Jersey’ often freaks me out - I imagine instant CLING) but the viscose element balances this beautifully, the combination also makes the dress super comfy.
Length: Classic elegance, means knee length for me.
This dress will be a little worker-bee, so the hi-lo hemline adds the touch of edgy I always look for.
Cut: V-neckline works a treat for girl with a fuller bust, but will also be delightful under blazers through A/W with the addition of a scarf or super cute neckerchief.
And finally, down one side there is a nifty little side tie. You can do up for added shape (like I have) or leave it free.
Viola! Perfect LBD!
