Miss Candyfloss pieces can sell out fast–so fast, in fact, that often a piece is entirely sold out before my order reaches my hands, let alone before I can even hope to shoot it and get up a review for you. Because of that today I’m doubling up in today’s post, before these dresses have a chance to sell out! So let’s take a look at the Tatum-Lee and the Edelie-Tea-Burgundy.
The Edelie-Tea is a dress they released last Autumn/winter, a piece designed in collaboration with Acid Doll. That iteration was black with white accents, but for their 10th anniversary Miss Candyfloss have re-released it this season in this lovely burgundy version with black accents.
The eye-catching feature of this dress is obviously the neck bow, but there in lays a double helping of design-genius because not only is this bow stitched into the perfect shape, saving you all the frustration of trying to tie an even, pretty bow each time you want to wear this dress, but it’s also detachable. It attaches to the collar with a hidden button on each side, so it’s incredibly easy to remove should you want to wear this dress without it. In doing so you also get to make the choice between wearing it fully buttoned to showcase the double henley neckline or partially unbuttoned for a slightly more relaxed feel, as the buttons on the bodice are functional. Throughout the length of the skirt the buttons are decorative. The dress closes with a hidden size zip but thanks to said detachable bow and the functioning buttons you won’t have to mess up your hair to get it on or off.
In addition to the bow, I also adore the sleeves. They have french cuffs, classy and elegant in contrast black fastened with a burgundy fabric covered button for punctuation. As with every other Miss C sleeved dress I’ve worn, the sleeves are graded up perfectly through the plus sizes, so they’re comfortable to wear with zero tightness or straining. The dress comes with a matching black fabric grommet belt, and has a lovely full swing skirt, ready to fit your medium-full volume petticoat to create a beautiful shape.
I’m wearing this dress in my usual Miss C size 2XL. There’s a good amount of stretch in the fabric so it’s a very comfortable wear. The waist flat measures 36.75 inches with stretch to 40 while the bust flat measures 44 inches with stretch to 48. The armholes are 22 inches flat, with additional stretch, and the bicep circumference is 18 inches with stretch. The french cuffs are firm at 14 inches around. The skirt is 28.5 inches long.
The Edelie-Lee-Burgundy dress is available in sizes XS-5XL. It is made in Europe, as are all Miss Candyfloss items.
The Tatum-Lee is a darling tartan number with a sweetheart neckline and half sleeves, which are finished with two navy pearl buttons. The cream background of the dress is criss-crossed by pale blue, grey, burnt orange and navy, giving you a variety of options for picking out tones to create interesting colour pairings in your accessories. The navy in the print is echoed in the navy fabric grommet belt. The simple half sleeves mean you can layer a nice thick cardigan over the dress on really cold days without the cardigan laying oddly or giving you that uncomfortable, bunched-up feeling underneath it.
This dress is part of the Marilyn inspired collection Miss Candyfloss have released for this season, and like many other of those themed releases I’m delighted that it too has hidden side pockets in the skirt. Said skirt fits a medium-full petticoat nicely, so you can achieve that classic New Look shape that I so love.
I asked for this, as always, in a 2XL. The bust measures 45 inches flat with stretch to around 48 inches. The waist measures 37 inches flat with just a touch of give, no stretch. The sleeves are 18 inches in circumference through the bicep and the armholes are 22 inches flat in circumference. It closes with a hidden side zip. The skirt is 28 inches long.
The Tatum-Lee dress was released just last week in sizes XS-5XL and has already been restocked this week with most sizes now still available, so if you’ve got your eye on it I’d act fast before it sells out again.
Miss Candyfloss do have stockists both online and in store around the globe, so if you miss a sold-out piece on their own website it’s possible to find it elsewhere–I would still advise you act quickly for stockists as well though, as they too often sell out fast for the most sought after pieces.
