Lady V London make some of the prettiest dresses out there for the plus size gal. Their size range is brilliant, stocking from an 8 to a size 32! Vintage inspired dresses with bright prints and lovely shapes, I am always eyeing up their new ranges. One of the things I love about Lady V is that their clothing is made in London, which means you can feel assured that it is made ethically.
Step in, the Verena*. The Verena is one of their new SS16 styles. It has a square neck, a ribbon around the waist to nip you in, and a cute pleated skirt. It isn't a full skirt like a lot of their designs, and it offers a sweet alternative look. It comes in several different prints, I'm wearing 'beautiful pink rose on black'.
Butterfly clip - Crown & Glory
Sunglasses - Ebay
Lipstick - Makeup Revolution

The fit of this dress is a little different for me compared to other Lady V I've tried. I'm much smaller chested than most plus size babes, and I suspect I could probably size down in this because of how roomy the bust area is. I just don't have anything to fill it out with! I love the square neck shape and having no sleeves means this is perfect to take you from Spring to Summer.
The print is so damn pretty. I love the floral on black. You could pair this with biker boots and a pleather jacket to really rock it up, or pop a pair of cute heels on to be total glamour. I'm 5ft 11 and the dress fell just below my knees, which I think is a really good length. It would be more of a midi dress on most people.
I've been hunting high and low for new sunglasses for the wedding, and I think these are the ones! I love sunglasses and usually wear what most people consider to be somewhat daft sunglasses, so a more 'serious' pair was in order. I love the subtle cat eye of these.
And my amazing oil slick trainers from ASOS. These are no longer available, but I adore them so had to share their holographic goodness. These are actually from the men's section, which is always worth a look in for cute trainers, sneakers and slip on Van's-type shoes. I wear a size 10 shoe so I'm always look in the men's section as so few women's websites do my size.
I felt so spring-like and cute in this look, come on sunshine, you can do it!
*this dress to me for review purposes. In no way does this impact upon my opinions, which are entirely my own.
