October Outfits Round Up

Finally, autumn has truly come. Some of the sleeved dresses I bought at the end of last winter or this spring have only this month been possible to wear, now that the temperature has begun to drop and the rain (sigh) is back. I’m not crazy about how difficult this wet, cold weather makes shooting for the blog outdoors, but I am definitely happy with the chance to play with darker colours and heavier fabrics.

Evie Everlasting [Voodoo Vixen]

I’m a fan of the colour teal, pockets and interesting contrast design details, and the Evie dress from Voodoo Vixen has all three. I mean, do you even need to know any more than that? I reckon we should ship straight to the pictures.

The Evie dress has a rounded neckline featuring a tear drop cut out and contrasting black trim. It’s sleeveless, comes with a removable matching belt, and closes with a back zipper The pockets are pretty as well as functional, featuring a black loop detail detail that is echoed on the shoulders. That contrasting looping design detail is what really caught my attention when I first saw this dress. It reminds me a little of westerns and cowgirls somehow, so I’m tempted to bust out my Texan cowgirl hat next summer to wear with this. The slim, flared skirt would fit a light volume petticoat but that’s all, and I think it lays more nicely without one.

The sizing on this dress is consistent with all Voodoo Vixen sizing. This XL flat measures 32 inches in the waist and flat stretches to almost 36, compared to the 33 inch waist Voodoo Vixen’s size chart states, so there’s some give in the fabric. The bust stretches to 44 inches.

The Evie dress costs £45 and comes in sizes S-XL, and my discount code ‘vintage20’ will give you 20% off your order until March 17th 2017. Voodoo Vixen ship internationally and also have stockists all over the world.
