House of Fraser Yumi Tea and Macaroon Dress Review

The high street isn’t somewhere I shop for dresses very often, mainly because I usually wear either vintage or reproduction vintage clothes and buy online. One shop on the high street that I’ve noticed is really good for finding vintage style dresses, is House of Fraser. They stock a really wide selection of brands and many of them have pretty prom and fit and flare style dresses, perfect if you’re looking for something fifties style. When I was offered a dress to review from house of Fraser, there were so any things I liked, it was really hard to choose. In the end I chose the Tea and Macaroon dress by Yumi, because it is just too pretty to resist.

House of Fraser Yumi Macaron Dress ReviewThe dress is adorned by pretty pictures of vintage tea cups and macaroons, all things I love! I felt like a princess as soon as I put the dress on, it is just so lovely. It is designed to be worn strapless, but also comes with some thin straps which I preferred. The dress has a satin lining and two layers of net to give it a slightly fuller look. For extra volume you could also wear it with a petticoat.

House of Fraser Yumi Dress ReviewThe quality is absolutely lovely, the dress has boning and cup support, which really help with the fit and the dress didn’t slip at all. The fabric is lovely and light and hangs perfectly over the net underskirt. I went for a size 14 and found that the dress came up true to size. It sits just below the knee, which is my favourite length.

House of Fraser Yumi Tea and Macarons DressI wore the dress with an original 50s necklace, a 50s box bag and a pair of Hotter shoes. I’m also planning to wear it with some flat shoes and a cardigan for a more casual look. The Dress is just too lovely to save for special occasions. I intend to wear it a lot.

Yum Tea and Macarons DressHaving tried this dress and been really impressed, I’m definitely going to get more dresses from House of Fraser in the future. I love the choice of style and huge range of brands. If you like vintage style clothing, but prefer to buy new, this is a great place to look.
