Life Is Like A Butterfly: Lady V Dress Review

Lady Pamper in Lady V-its  a marriage made in heaven

As a rule I avoid things with butterflies on like the plague (a winged one perhaps) namely because some plus size clothing brands are quite obsessed with putting butterfly motifs on almost everything. Its always been the way and I'm not sure why. Many's the time I have scooped something fantastic looking off a rail like a cute frock or great sweater only to see the dreaded flappy wing motif. As if fat girls are so repulsive we need something bright and fluttery on our threads to avert peoples stares from our shiny pie faces.
However some butterfly prints are just too gawd damn gorgeous to ignore and this is one of them.
This dress has made breaking my "no butterflies" rule easy

I reviewed  another Lady V dress recently (see post here) and fell quite hard for both the shape and the quality. These frocks are da bomb.
So when I saw this beauty in the Lady VLondon  sale for a mere fifteen quid it had to mine and isn't it just darling!
Fifties inspired plus size perfection 

This shape just gives you such a nice silhouette. Nipped in at the waist with a lovely flared circle skirt.Its very 1950's and in this print looks quite authentic
In terms of sizing this is a size 20 and despite the fact I have quite a small rib cage this just fits so if you are quite broad around your ribs I would suggest sizing up in this style as its a cotton fabric and zipped so has no give.


Pink accessories work against the blue and green print beautifully

Sorry if I haven't been very prolific with my blog over the last few weeks, life has been really busy (in an amazing way) since Plus North and with Nicky Rockets exhibiting the Curverella tees at London Edge it just hasn't slowed down.

I have some fantastic outfit reviews in the pipeline though so stay tuned.

  1. I'm the same with butterflies, it's those tent like tops with stray bits of glitter on the butterfly that haunt me! Plus butterflies always make me think of Mariah Carey who kinda cheapened them! Anyway this dress is pretty regardless and the print is actually lovely.
