I love a beautiful vintage style dress. Dressing up and being really girly, I adore it! And Lady V London are one of those brands that do a fancy dress beautifully.
This dress is the Lady V London Hepburn dress in Enchanting Birds Forest Green*. Green is not a colour I wear often enough. I love the deep green colour, and the print is stunning. It features hummingbirds and flowers in beautiful pinks. It retails at £50, which for a high end dress made in England is incredibly reasonable.
Isn't the print so lovely? It comes with a thin black belt that really looks lovely with it. You could easily not wear the belt if you wanted to, but I think it accents the waist really nicely.
The skirt is a full traditional 1950's circle skirt. I couldn't resist twirling about in it! I didn't wear it with a petticoat, but you could add a petticoat to really turn on the glamour. I paired it with stompy boots for a more casual look, and an orchid clip from Crown & Glory.
I found this dress to be true to size, it has a small amount of elastine in it so could easily accommodate a larger bust than mine. The arm holes are nice and roomy, and the dress is so soft.
I've admired Lady V London for a long while, and this dress has definitely made me realise it is only the first of many of their pieces I will be adding to my wardrobe. They are a company who designs and makes their dresses in the UK, and stock a great size range. It's wonderful!
Supporting independent business is really important, especially when you can see they are so obviously creating beautiful pieces to fit so many.
