The Estella Dress OOTD

 Good morning campers I hope you are all well, today I have a rather fabulous outfit to share with you all!

I had been lurking on the Lady Vintage London site for ages drooling over the Estella dress which had been designed by the gorgeous Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust but I couldn't afford the original price tag. When I spotted on Facebook that their sale had started before Christmas I had a look and decided straight away to grab one for £30! 

I have been desperate to blog this dress since it arrived but I was waiting until I had a petticoat to go with it. After days of trawling Ebay and the rest of the internet the lovely Sarah from Plus Size & Proud  mentioned she had one to sell so I was very excited when it arrived at my office earlier this week and so I took it for a spin round Birmingham yesterday!!

So here she is in all her glory!

I apologise that you can't quite see the top of the dress but it was so cold I couldn't take my cardigan off, but at the bottom of this post is a very short video of me in the dress!

I went with the 22-24 and it is slightly big I would say that these dresses are cut generously so stick with your usual size. My only slight issue is the shoulders are a little big but that is down to me having narrow shoulders not the dress. I love that the bust is stitched closed as normally cross over dresses are left open which means they gape on me and everyone gets a a good look at my bra!! It is so lovely to have a dress which shows some cleavage but doesn't leave me feeling to exposed!

To get the best look with this dress a petticoat is a good addition as it has the full skirt so sometimes you want a bit of oomph. I actually wore it to work last week and the reaction was amazing my co-workers loved it and it made me smile all day!

I think Lady V and Georgina have nailed it with this dress and I also love that the size range was 8-32 so totally inclusive.
Sadly since I bought it they have all pretty much sold out, but I'm sure they may pop up on Ebay now and then so I am just thankful I bought one when I did!

You can also check out my latest Vlog on YouTube to see this dress in action (towards the end of the video).

Below is also a quick snippet of the dress as well!
