I LOVEthis dress. My fabulous friend Sarah first sent me the word about this dress. I tried it on but decided to resist and then wished I hadn't- resisted that is It's available from Monsoon. I did think about keeping this one quiet ... but how could I?
And now there seems to be no black available - boo hoo sob ! So I have ordered one in ivory instead. If I had the budget I would have one in every colour. It's so Mad Men, gives a great fit and makes you look hourglass. And it's the perfect length with lovely shoulder line for triangular shaped ladies like me. But great for Columns, Rectangles, & Inverted Triangles as well as lucky hourglass ladies too. Slight boat neck with a slight tulip shape at the skirt. And the one colour is a great for lengthening the body so you look taller and slimmer. Fab. Don't let the initial feel of the lace put you off. At first it feels a little woolly, stretchy & dare I say it 'cheaper' than it should for the price but when you have it on you realise that it wouldn't work any other way.
It's £110.00/CHF 160, is hand wash only (!!!??? eh !!!??) so is expensive but I think worth it. This could be a lifetime keeper. Your eternal LBD or LWD.
Swiss Ladies: Monsoon UK do deliver to Switzerland for a reasonable £7.95/CHF 12 & promise to take only 3 days.
Stunning lace dress - The Most Amazing Hourglass Silhouette even if you don't have one naturally. With pocket detail at the front - very very lovely. I love pockets
Colour COBALT/BLACK/IVORY - Black seems to have sold out for now
Fabric 73% cotton 27% polyamide - sort of stretchy/wool like lace but don't let that put you off -the fabric has stretch but the lining doesn't. It's amazing on. Lining 100% acetate
Care Instruction Hand wash - boooo
Length 110cm - I'm 5'5 and this falls to a midi length - very Mad Men
Top Tip: You can also add a belt - the dress shape allows this without it looking odd. Did you know that if you break your body line - for example with a belt, you visually lose 3 inches from your height? But a funky coloured belt in a contrasting colour is a great alternative to colour blocking.
