As I said in my last post, I was very lucky in that I wore some beautiful clothes from some cracking brands last weekend and this next brand was up there with the absolute best; MS SVG:
On the Sunday morning, I was tired. Saturday night had been an....er....let's just say "late one". Kathryn and I had done some excessive dancing and no amount of showering made me feel anything other than grim... (There's picture evidence but I don't want to soil this post with such silliness). Suffice to say, my inner Naomi Campbell had all but evaporated. Then I met Monique. Monique is the buyer for MS SVG and is just one of the kindest, most friendly women I've had the good fortune to meet. Basically, she could have given me a string vest and I'd have worn it. Thankfully, a string vest wasn't on the cards. What WAS on the cards was this:
This is the Cabiria Flaminia Print Dress in Tropicalia
This dress was previewed at New York fashion week and is a piece of dress genius. We all have that dream dress, which pulls us in at the waist but isn't uncomfortably tight, is sexy but doesn't require constant tugging and tucking. I also fantasise about POCKETS and a powerful shoulder. This dress ticks all the boxes; I couldn't stop chattering on about the shoulder - it flattered me in a way that nothing else ever has.
The length is perfect on me, I hadn't taken my nice shoes with me and was wearing tights and ankle boots but the dress STILL worked, it's just that versatile. The zip up back is great for easy dressing and the fabric is a stiff cotton, meaning that it keeps its shape perfectly. The sleeves are also that flattering just longer that short sleeves (could do to brush up on my sleeve terminology potentially....) this dress is available in UK 16-26.
The print is just phenomenal, I would never have considered this print for myself if I was looking online but it's certainly opened my eyes to brighter bolder prints. The dress is also available in red and black (modeled on the site by beautiful Hollie) I'm seriously considering the black dress as a wardrobe staple, I loved wearing it just THAT much,
MS SVG stock beautiful plus size clothes from around the world and carry a great deal of UK exclusives (I'm very into the Junarose dress Hannah is modelling above)
I'll leave you with this picture of the other MS SVG models, a group of beautiful women in beautiful clothes.
Thank you Monique and MS SVG for letting me wear this beauty!
