I think I’ve just about told everybody how much I love the Elvi Autumn/Winter collection and I now have 3 staple pieces in my wardrobe that I cannot wait to wear again and again. Velvet is one of my all time favourite things to wear and as soon as I saw this dress, I just knew I had to have it. This was confirmed further when I saw it on the beautiful Michaela at The Curve Fashion Festival.
The Velvet Floral Midaxi Cami Dress is definitely oversized and so a size 24 ended up being really baggy on me, but I actually liked the look. It felt comfortable to wear and although I had to adjust it with my belt a lot, it didn’t bother me because it truly looked fantastic. It’s such a beautiful print, and it even comes in a skirt too! I’m tempted to buy it but I’ve just done a huge clearout and that would really defeat my objective. It’s currently on sale for £34.30 but even at it’s full price of £49, it’s one of those dresses that you’re going to get tonnes of wear out of it. If you’re wanting a baggy style, stick with your regular size, but if you’re wanting it to be more fitted, size down.
Alfie, Mum and I headed to the Winter Gardens in Sheffield to shoot these photos as part of the BBC ‘series’ I was filming. It ended up being a 15 minute documentary that I was only in for a couple minutes but it meant that we ended up talking well over 200 photos of this outfit. Silver lining I guess! The Winter Gardens is actually a lovely place to shoot in on rainy days for cover, but also for light. I’m so happy with how these photos came out.
I am a little coat obsessed this year, which is quite funny as with my chronic pain I only go out maybe once a week. But there’s just so many beautiful coats out and I’m so pleased to finally have another Leopard Print coat in my life. This Leopard Boyfriend Coat at £44 is utterly stunning. It’s the perfect type of print, it’s not too heavy, and in a 24 it’s a great fit. I would say that if you carry your weight in the middle, to size up with this. With coats it’s always easier to try a couple sizes though as you want the best fit.
I actually ended up ordering a couple Elvi skirts to wear on the Lipcote shoot (post coming soon!) that I did but nobody ended changing so I didn’t want to look like a diva. Random to mention but I just wanted to point out further how striking Elvi’s pieces are, they make a statement, they don’t copy or imitate other brands, and they’re pieces that last.
Have you tried anything from Elvi before?
