I love all things Gingerbread. I have also collected all things gingerbread for years and have many decorations, plush items, and clothing, wall plaques and more. I was over the moon excited when I saw that Lady V of London had come out with a limited edition Gingerbread Lyra dress for the holiday season and Too Faced cosmetics also came out with a limited edition Extra Spicy Gingerbread Eye Shadow palette with the most adorable packaging. This was going to be a very sweet festive season for sure!!
Watermelon is usually a hit at every BBQ and all summer long. The sweet and juicy fruit is so hydrating and packed with all sorts of goodness for your skin and hair. So, what could be even better then a dripping delicious slice of chilled watermelon… well, this stunning Lady Voluptuous Lyra Dress in Watermelon Crush!!
The team over at Lady Voluptuous keeps amazing me with each season as they come out with the prettiest of wrap dresses- the Lyra dress. I love the Lyra dresses because they look spectacular on a wide variety of body shapes and available in sizes 14-32 UK and are made from high quality fabrics. I love the Lyra’s fit, because it is a wrap dress it fits my bust perfectly and gives me a very feminine silhouette. I feel well dressed and beautiful.
I love a fabulous Flamingo print and Lady V really delivered with the Dinah Skirt – Pretty In Pink Flamingos that combines my love for polka dots and flamingos into this new for SS2018 1950s inspired skirt that is made in England. The fabric is very nice quality cotton that holds it shape firmly, has plenty of room for a fluffy petticoat and has a super fun print with a navy blue background, bright pink flamingos, palm fronds, and perfect polka dots. Skirt zips up the back and also has pockets!!
Lady Voluptuous has put their own stamp on the classic wrap dress with a 1950s circle skirt and a standout print for every occasion. I was so excited to work with Lady Voluptuous on this collaboration and wear their new Autumn/Winter 2016 Lyra Dress that I could not wait to style and shoot this delectably sweet dress in the Cute As A Cupcake print in black.
This Lyra dress is practical, feminine, and sexy, yet can be work appropriate too. For Autumn this dress has long sleeves!!! Hooray for all us ladies that don’t enjoy baring our arms as well as appreciate the longer length for added warmth as the weather turns cooler. No one can pass up the cute cupcake print (I was craving cupcakes badly) and the colors are perfect for Autumn with cozy shades of gold, brownish/orange, hints of red and pastel blues/pinks. The Lyra dress is spot on for modern dressing with its V-neck wrap design that fits a woman’s body like no other dress as it perfectly hugged my curves and hour glass shape, and, in keeping with the vintage theme it has that fabulous full circle skirt. With ties in the back, you can pull the dress as tight as you like to enhance your waist or, keep it looser for work wear. I love that this wrap dress also lets the wearer adjust just how much cleavage they are comfortable showing as you can pull it higher in front to minimize the amount or, pull it down a bit to bare a little more.
In these pictures I styled the dress very minimally as I wanted the fun print to be the showstopper. I wore it with my simple black pumps and some bright pink earrings. I added a pink cardigan for a little contrast to show just how easy it is to style this stunning dress. As the weather cools I will pair it with tights and some tall boots and richer hued cardigans. I am a Lyra dress fan having the green and purple styles in my collection and am so thrilled to have the addition of this Cupcake print in my wardrobe as this dress is a staple and so very comfortable to wear. The dress is as light as air and doesn’t wrinkle!! Lady Voluptuous garments are made in London from the finest fabrics in sizes 16-32. I need all the Lyra’s in all the styles!! Hurry and snap yours up before it sells out ——> Cute As A Cupcake dress.
