Poodle business

Hello sweethearts!

It is middle of winter here in Croatia and I am still in love with wine red colored everything. Since fall I'm hooked on wine red clothes, accessories, shoes...and it does not seem like it is going to stop soon. My new addition to that lovely obsession is this amazing Fifi dress by Lady V London.

Fifi dress is a brand new, Limited edition to Lady V London. This style comes in several prints and in sizes 8-22. It is currently available in damask print on Lady V London site- http://ladyvlondon.com/

Fifi dress features a pencil skirt, high neckline with a peter pan collar and small capped sleeves. It is a fitted version of a Ruby flared style dress. And frankly I don't know which of these details is my favorite! I just adore the elegance and playfulness of petar pan collar. But for a woman who is self conscious about her arms I love capped sleeves that are a perfect fit since my arms were always a little thicker.

Made from a 95% polyester and 5% elastine, Fifi  has a figure hugging stretch fabric. The best thing about this fabric is that it is super resistant to wrinkling, requires a minimum of ironing and it's comfortable. If you are in between sizes I would recommend to freely size it down for best fit. 

Fifi dresses are 1950's length, starting from 44.5". I am 5'7" (170cm) tall and wear a size 12 so the dress goes right below my knees. Speaking of the 1950's, how amazing is this poodle print inspired by the most memorable symbol of 1950's Americana; the poodle skirt. Besides cute poodle silhouettes, fabric also features tiny hearts.

This dress is not lined so it's great for warmer days but also for adding layers when cold; like blazer, cardigan or faux fur jacket. Manufactured by Lady V London & made in London, when you buy from Lady Vintage range, you know that you are supporting a British Brand, a British Factory, and British Workers.
