I can’t believe it is November let alone Thanksgiving is this week!! The year is almost over. I like to dress up on Thanksgiving and hubby and I make the feast together. We are traditional when it comes to making this special meal but hubby is a master when it comes to cooking the turkey. Make sure you are following my Instagram stories, as I will post pics and videos of our day.
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.
The perfect dress for Spring is here!! Let me tell you all about the stunning Donna dress in Vintage Rose Sage print from the fabulous brand Heart of Haute. The first thing you notice about the Donna is the beautiful Vintage Rose Print with a soft blue background and delicate pink roses. The Donna is a wrap dress so I knew without a doubt it would work on my curvy body and fit my bust area. The fabric is a very fine sweater knit fabric and it has a good amount of stretch. I typically wear a size 2XL and I am wearing the Donna in a 1XL because of the amount of stretch.
It was a lot of fun collaborating with Lindy Bop for this post. This is also the first time I am featuring Lindy Bop on my blog. Lindy Bop are a vintage style brand that have the most unique and creative prints. If you love novelty prints and boarder prints then Lindy Bop is the brand for you!!
I am wearing a wonderful wrap dress in these photos called ‘Dawn’ Navy Cherry Polka Dot Swing Dress . As a women with ample curves , wrap dresses are my go-to style. This pretty print is a dark navy blue covered with ripe red cherries. I couldn’t resist this one. I love the way it hugs my curves, emphasizes my waist and flatters my shape. The dress is made from a medium very stretchy jersey fabric making it perfect for Autum and chilly weather and doesn’t wrinkle much at all. Oh, and did I mention the price….. under $50!!
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.
