Springtime in California is marvelous. The sun shines brightly but not too hot and there is a gentle breeze blowing. Everything is blooming and the air is perfumed with jasmine, roses, and orange blossoms. The vineyards here in wine country are just starting to bloom and what could be better than getting all dolled up in a figure flattering dress by Pretty Dress Company and spending the day at the stunning Ferrari Carano winery.
There’s something about a pretty dress that just makes everything feel a little more magical. Maybe it’s the way they swish and sway when you walk, or the way they make you feel feminine and beautiful. A day at the winery is all about dressing up in your prettiest dress and enjoying a day of wine tasting and relaxation.
That’s why I was excited to collaborate with the UK based Pretty Dress Company as they make vintage-inspired clothing that is figure flattering, chic, and makes you feel magical. I had selected a couple of dresses to review and style, and they came very quickly (within a couple of days) all the way from the UK to California. I decided to wear this cobalt blue Myla dress because the blue color is so vivid and lovely and I thought it would really pop for a trip to the vineyards.
The Myla dress has a classic silhouette with a very full circle skirt, v neck, and fitted bodice. I was not sure which size to order and decided to order one size up and I am very glad that I did as the dress fit a bit tight on my bust but was still very comfortable and the fabric has a little stretch as it is made from stretch lux crepe. The Pretty Dress Company does offer sizing up to 20 UK. The dress is also lined and has pockets and barely wrinkles. The fabric and dress construction are very high quality. The Myla dress is available in multiple colors and will become a staple as it is very elegant and versatile and can be worn to formal functions as well as to the office (many are returning to the office these days) especially when having to conduct meetings or present at conferences, and even out to dinner. Accessorize the dress with a colorful cardigan, shoes, purse, and jewelry and it becomes a fun day dress to wear with lots of classic style.
Ferrari Carano winery is an incredibly beautiful Italian style winery with a magnificent vineyard and the property has the most incredible gardens and waterfalls. You can see more photos and read more about the winery in a previous post here and to see what wintertime looks like you can see it here. We had a perfect day and I received so many compliments in my pretty dress. I felt so comfortable and effortlessly chic in this dress.
Hurry over to The Pretty Dress Company and snap up your Myla and some other beautiful styles. Be sure to view the size charts and reach out and ask TPDC about sizing if you are unsure and their friendly team will gladly assist you. I will share another review with you all when I show you the whimsical Elsie Gingham dress so stay tuned for that. Hope you all are having a lovely Spring!!
