So hear it is, my lovelies - the Isabella Oliver Toga dress:
This toffee-coloured dress is utterly beautifully constructed. It's lined with a same-tone tricot slip, the drape is spectacular and the asymmetry of the neckline and sleeves appeals tremendously.
Gotta say though, it's not a garment for the faint of heart. It emphasizes every curve, and as you know I am not short on those. I can't wear it to work, it's simply too, well, distracting. However, if you were of straighter proportions than me, I think it would play up the curves you're seeking and be extremely chic.
Scott, my photog, could not stop talking about its elegance.
I will totally purchase from this brand again. But, next time, I will choose something a smidge more conservative, to get as much use out of it as possible!
Secretly, this is my dream purchase du jour:
I think it's extremely unlikely that it will still be available on April 1, when my no-shopping moment has passed. But if it is, this is my next splurge.
Thanks, Lucy, for giving me a chance to see this beautiful line up close and personal!
