I dread this time of year for one thing only, and that’s when the Maxi dress appears. Normally during the winters months, this style of dress is saved for Weddings. For me, to say I dislike maxi dresses is a under statement. They remind me of when I was pregnant with our first child and maternity wear was dreadful. You were resigned to look like a you were wearing a potato sack the whole time and that during the time you were not meant to look stylish at all. I was only 24 and still wanted to look stylish and young. So as you can read, Maxi dresses just remind me of a less stylish time, now if I was to wear one I just look like am expecting all over again! So, when Izabel London kindly offered for me to choose some items from their collection, I could not get over how stunning their maxi dresses are. Now I am not a person who will give up easily on trying different styles, so I decided to challenge myself and to pick out two beautiful maxi dresses.
I chose this Floral Print Wrap Over Maxi for the colour. Stunning sky blue and dainty flower print really are a marriage made. The cut of the dress is not your standard maxi, as it wraps over the top part of the body, which is extremely flattering if you are quite well endowed in that area. I find this dress such a easy piece to wear. I teamed it with my favorite wedge espadrilles to give me a little height to show off how slimming this dress can be with the right accessories. I like how with its floral print, and wrap over style which is reminiscence of the early 20th century tea dresses, giving that vintage feel to the dress.
The next dress I chose, was this one from Izabel London, Stella Morgan range Multi Red Maxi Dress. I was drawn to the Aztec inspired print that screams summer to me. It has ruching around the rib cage area which helps to give your waist some definition because its not a empire which would normally sit under the bust. The skirt is very full, and I enjoyed swishing around in this dress. I took these photos on the hottest day of the year (hence my sour face!!) and it was so cool and airy to wear. I teamed this dress with Topshop Cross Strap Sandals, which I thought worked brilliantly with it. I love the bright colours and the pattern it makes me feel ready for a summer holiday. It just goes to show when you try a different cut of a Maxi dress it can really change your perception. I think I can safely say, I have rekindled my love for Maxi Dresses AGAIN.
Thank you again for Izabel London for these beautiful dresses. I hope you liked these dresses. Will you be wearing a maxi dress this summer? If you are in the market for a Maxi dress, why not give Izabel London a try.
