When it came to picking an outfit for the 2015 Christmas festivities I was underwhelmed by what I had in my wardrobe. I just wanted some new and of good quality material so I wouldn’t have to layer up if it was cold.
I searched through the internet in my lunch break at work and came across this dress from BooHoo. Even though I wasn’t looking to wear black, it had stunning detail on the piece of material from the waist up. The model looked great in their pictures and I just thought, that looks like the dress for me. I like skater dresses because of my figure, and hoped it would be as flattering on me as it was her.
When the dress arrived I was so pleased with the quality of the fabric. Not only that but the feathers were so intricately sown on it looked far more expensive than its price tag. As you can see from my photograph, this dress has a lot of pretty sewn on white feathers, which almost look three dimensional from a distance. The dress itself was a thick material, especially the skirt part which started from the waist underneath where the mesh/lace with the feathers ended.
The dress was both comfortable to wear and warm as well. I paired it with knee high boots and a black shrug and I was more than content in this outfit. I received lots of nice compliments about it and felt I had made the right style decision for my figure.
After I had worn the dress I obviously washed it and thankfully I lost none of the detail. (Make sure you always wash items like this inside out to stop any detail snagging). I would happily wear this dress again at any time of the year.
Overall I am ecstatic with my purchase from BooHoo and I can recommend their dresses, this is not the first one I have purchased.
My final review for this piece of clothing is:
5/5 for comfort
5/5 for durability and quality
5/5 for style and appearance
5/5 for value
This dress is still available from www.boohoo.com but only in limited sizes. I am adding the link for you here if you’re interested in looking at it further.
