My First Lady V London Lyra

Sunday 6 August 2017

Sometimes you see an item of clothing that you just absolutely have to have. I had that moment recently when I saw Lady V London had released a series of new prints in their classic Lyra design. Every single person I've ever seen buy a Lyra dress has absolutely loved theirs, but I've held off buying one for a while not sure if they would suit me or not. Then I saw this print and bam, before I knew what had happened I'd bought it and it was mine.

Skulls and flowers. There couldn't be a more perfect Kitty-esque print! I tend to be a sales shopper, but I was happy to spend £45 on this beauty because I own several Lady V London dresses and I knew the quality would be immaculate. I was not wrong! It's lush. The print is called 'Gorgeously Gothic' and unfortunately as I write this it is out of stock in every single size, despite only being released a few days ago! I'm so glad I snapped it up when I did. They have an amazing new range of prints, including donuts which is just so so cute.

The only thing that had put me off ordering a Lyra before is that everyone I see rock one has a much more traditional hour glass figure than me. I don't have a small waist and big hips, I have a big belly, and I have a small bust. So not the body type I usually see in these. However, I am really happy to report that it fit like a dream! I was concerned there would be gaping at the bust but there wasn't, but it was also clear that there was plenty of room for a much larger bust than mine. The arms are a loose flowing fit that is great for summer.

While I'm wearing leggings in this look, I would happily wear this bare legged. It hits me just at knee level, it was just chilly when I was shooting the dress! I'm 5ft 11 so it would usually be more of a traditional midi length. The crossover section hits me directly under the bust and ties at the back, so you can nip the dress in to accentuate the full skirt.

Now owning a Lyra, I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more fantastic prints I can get my mitts on. I totally see why everyone loves them so much!

Much love,
Kitty xxxx
