AD* Navabi : Woke up to the sound of pouring rain

Tuesday 1 October 2019


Every gal's wardrobe needs a few good black dresses. A truly good black dress is high quality, the darkest of blacks, soft, comfy, doesn't need ironing, and is super versatile. The kind folks at Navabi sent me this gorgeous Navabi dress which certainly fits the bill! This is the Annalisa jersey knot front dress, it retails for £81 and is available in up to a size 30. It's super stretchy though, so could possibly fit a little bigger too.

I apologise in advance for the cardigan I wear in all these photos, it was absolutely pouring with rain when I dragged my poor Pops out to take these photos, we both got soaked! The cardigan is actually another beloved Navabi piece in my wardrobe, that they kindly sent me over 3 years ago. And it's just as immaculate as it was despite my throwing it in the dryer when I shouldn't. It's never bobbled or marked, and it's as soft and beautiful as ever.

This jersey knot dress has 3/4 length sleeves which is ideal. I'm 5ft 11 and long sleeves are never long enough, with 3/4 sleeves they hit just right. On me the length is just below the knee, so if you are shorter it may be more of a true midi dress. It nips in at the waist with the knot under the bust, then flares out and skims over the body. Combined with the jersey fabric, it makes this dress so comfortable! I prize comfort above most things when it comes to my fashion, and this is a winner for sure.

You could easily wear this to work (I plan to), throw on some sparkly heels, expensive jewellery and glam it up for a meal in a fancy restaurant, or, it would work for those sadder occasions when black is requested. This has made it into my wardrobe just in time for autumn and I can see myself getting so very much wear out of it. Navabi might be higher end in terms of their pricing, but as an investment, their pieces keep so incredibly well that it makes them worth it. All of my pieces from them look the same as they did the day I unpacked them.

Much love,
