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!

OOTD – easy peasy lemon squeezy

Als het aankomt op prints ben ik echt een love-it-or-hate-it kind of girl. Of ik word verliefd, of ik blijf er ver van weg, en er is geen middenweg. Je kan me dan ook vaak vinden in een effen outfit, maar voor dingen als streepjes, polkadots, bloemen en tijgerprints maak ik graag een uitzondering. Mogen ook op die lijst: citroenprintjes! Ik weet niet wat er zo magisch is aan een citroenprint, maar elke keer ik er eentje zie, waan ik mezelf al in Toscane (of, you know, waar citroenen dan ook gekweekt worden) als een of andere Italiaanse schone.

Er zijn zo van die outfits die niet veel woorden, nodig hebben, omdat ze wel redelijk voor zichzelf spreken. Ik denk dat deze foto’s en m’n smile wel vertellen hoe awesome deze look is. You like? let me know!
