A while ago for the summer blog challenge, I was asked what my style was. I confessed that my inner self had a romantic kind of style, similar to that of Holy Clothing.
Those who know me find the idea of me in a dress hilarious - seeing as I rarely wear one, and if so, usually hurry home to change back into my jammies as soon as possible. I am not a girlie girl by any stretch of the imagination, but this year, I've really wanted to have 1 dress I could wear and feel good in.
My trip to the local store proved disastrous - leaving me feeling like a beached whale and unlikely to buy a dress ever again. Shortly after, I was in contact with them and am very pleased that I'm able to review a dress!
After much debate, I decided to pick a Saria Scalloped Hem Gothic Embroidered Gypsy Sun Beach Dress in the colour of green jade.
It arrived quickly and I was so excited to wear it.
The only issue I had was the the straps were too big - but a simple tailor job made them shorter which made the dress be a complete perfect fit.
Handmade in India, the workmanship on the dress is immaculate - detailed embroidery decorates the whole thing, the seams are sturdy and durable, and the scalloped hem is absolutely gorgeous. Across the back is a stretchable panel, which allows the dress to move with me as I go about my day to day movements. A simple tie-back pulls the dress into a flattering shape, giving a more hourglass silhouette. The perfect length too for me at 5'8", I LOVE that it brushes gently across the floor.
