Will my CowCow obsession ever stop? No, I don't think it ever will. I wish they'd existed years ago, teenage me would have adored what they do. And 28 year old me is still so very into it. This time it's a dress from their Amazon store, the women's leopard print double sided skater dress in turquoise*.
Their Amazon store is full of vibrant prints and adorable patterns in skirts, dresses and leggings. The variety in their Amazon store isn't as vast, but it is all ready to ship designs, unlike their own website. I love leopard print, but rather than opt for a more typical leopard print colour, this bright turquoise green was so fun I couldn't resist.
The skater dress is an absolute fave of mine, the sleeveless design is great for nights out, and the spandex material is soft, comfortable and stretchy. It has a good amount of material in the skirt to skim over your hips and give good twirl!
I'm 5ft 11, and this particular dress sits a couple of inches above my knee. Usually they are slightly longer, but this dress is actually a 3X, and I usually wear a 4X in CowCow. Not all their designs are available in every size (yet! They are working on it) and this is one that stops at a 3X. I decided to risk it and I am glad I did, whilst a little shorter than my usual size, it's so fun I couldn't resist.
Because this dress is a size smaller than my usual, it is a little more stretched out on me. In this close up you can very faintly see white horizontal lines down the dress where the fabric has stretched. I've lightened this photo so you can see them, but they are nowhere near this noticeable in real life. In the interest of transparency, I just want to be honest and share this because the dress does have a white base, so as it stretches it will become sheerer. However, the lines are so faint in person that it wouldn't stop me wearing this at all. This happened because I got a dress in a size too small, so in the correct size this wouldn't happen.
CowCow dresses have become my go-to wardrobe for gigs. The fabric is lightweight and breathable enough that you can dance and get all hot and sweaty and the dress doesn't exacerbate it! Paired with my trusty pleather jacket, favourite Demonia boots and leggings, this is easy Autumn wardrobe that still looks fun and is so comfy.
This dress costs £8.99. For real. It's £8.99 and the shipping is free. That's seriously incredible, and helps explain why I now have so much CowCow! It's a real bargain, and I just can't resist.
