Green is my absolute favourite colour, I love trees and freshly cut grass and being in the countryside with nothing but green landscape for miles. My bedroom is painted green and my favourite pen writes with green ink. Unfortunately there is not nearly enough green in my wardrobe and thats where todays dress comes in. When I saw the latest collection from Voodoo Vixen, the Delilah dress was one of the things that really stood out to me. So when I got the chance to review another dress for them, this is the one I chose.
The dress is trimmed with an adorable daisy trim, which is just perfect for an English summer. It has delicate spaghetti straps and two little patch pockets at the front. It fastens with a concealed zip at the back and had an elasticated smocked section at the back, making it quite flexible for size. The dress is made from a polyester and rayon blend, which has the feel of a stretch cotton blend and has a really nice weight to it.
I went for a size Large in this one, I’m usually a UK size 14 and the fit of this was great. I can be a bit between sizes in Voodoo Vixen, but I’d say this one is pretty true to size. The smocking at the back gives the dress lots of bust room, the adjustable straps also make this one quite flexible for bigger boobs.
The overall quality of the dress is lovely and the fabric is really nice, the construction is really good and the trim is beautiful. My only qualm is the way the smocking sits at the sides. I found adding a belt to the dress sorted this out and so this wasn’t a big problem for me. I wore mine with a daisy hair garland, Miss L Fire shoes, a vintage 197os belt and a vintage celluloid bangle. The dress is really easy to accessorise as it features yellow and white details. It’s nice to add some brighter shoes for that extra pop of colour. I couldn’t resist wearing this lovely dress for a walk around the lavender fields, I’m so glad they’re in bloom as its really is the perfect location for taking outfit pics. I look a bit tired as I’m not very well and this was the day before I ended up at the hospital, so despite the beautiful dress I’m not looking my best!
You can find this and lots of other gorgeous things over on the Voodoo Vixen website.
