OOTD – tropical wrapdress

I used to stay away from light colours because I was told they make you look fat. I know, silly right? Thank god I no longer believe in that little story, cause otherwise I would have completely missed out on this gorgeous white wrap dress with tropical leaf print from Belloya.

Belloya is known for its dresses and they have several wrap dresses in their collection. I think a wrap dress is such an iconic, classic piece that every woman should own. They are so versatile and very sizefriendly, because you can adjust them to your size and shape for a perfect fit. This one gets special bonuspoints because it’s made from a stretchy, natural material, which makes this sweaty girl very happy, hah!

I especially appreciate those little details that show a lot of thought went into a design. The wrap is extra wide and provides plenty of coverage and the “belt” is very long so you can comfortable wrap it around your body. It’s those little details that count! It also comes in a dark blue, but I just couldn’t resist it in white.┬áBring on those hot summer days, I’m ready!

OOTD – The Lyra from Lady V

I know a lot of women struggle with wearing dresses. They want to wear them, but they don’t know which shape suits them and where to find a great dress and don’t feel great in the dresses they try on… So I figured it was about time I dedicated a post to one of the most versatile dresses out there that will look great on all types of bodies and sizes and that you should definitely check out: the Lyra from Lady V.

They come in a variety of colours and prints and often come in new designs, but I’m not super intro that retro look so I just stick to the solid colours and the occasional floral print. Their sizing is generous and they have megastretch anyway, so I suggest sizing down a size. I get them from the Lady V London website, but if your favourite is sold out then try Google, they retail in other shops as well. This shape is always called Lyra, so they’re easy to find!

Okay, back to the dress. The reason why this is such a great, universal dress is because it is designed with women and their needs in mind. You guys know I don’t really care about flattering, but there are so many women out there who want to highlight or create a waist, show off their cleavage, flatter their hips and thighs, cover their arms, and this dress does all of that and more. It comes in a high stretch fabric and you can adjust the waist, so even if you lose or gain weight this baby will still fit. It’s the easiest dress you’ll ever find and I can guarantee you 100% that you’ll feel great in it every time. I have 6 or 7 or them, to me they’re the perfect dress to wear when I have 30 seconds to get ready in the morning and want to look great with zero effort. They hit just at the knee for me, but keep in mind that I’m a giant. On average height, they’ll hit just below the knee. Go check ‘m out, you won’t regret it!
