I’d heard of Lady V a couple of years ago but I’d never really considered buying anything. This all changed last Christmas when Lady V put on a great sale. One dress really stood out for me and that was the dress I bought: the Isabella dress in blue clock print.
I fell for this print because it gave me real Doctor Who vibes, as well as an Alice in Wonderland feel. The style reminded me of the Heidi dress by Pin-Up Girl Clothing so I knew it would look flattering on me.
The Isabella as described by Lady V:
- Cute Sweetheart Neckline with detachable bow
- 1950s style flared skirt
- Fastens with a zip at the back
One of the features that I really like about this dress is the back zip. When I’ve spent ages on my hair and have a tricky dress to put on, it can completely ruin my ‘do. It’s not an issue when I’m wearing the same outfit all day but if I have a shoot or something else to do in the day, a back zip fastening is really helpful.
For the soft fairyland look, I paired this dress simply with a frothy white petticoat and white flats.
This style is really easy to wear and I’m sure I’ll be adding a few more Isabellas to my wardrobe in the future. Have you tried any other dress styles from Lady V? What would you recommend?
