Dress: c/o Curvissa. Corset: Amazon. Bag: River Island. Shoes: Evans. Necklace: Topshop.
Curvissa recently got in touch to ask if I'd like to style up one of their occasion wear pieces and I couldn't say no to the Leaf Print Tea Dress! It's been on my radar for quite sometime as I simply adore the monochrome with the flash of vibrant flowers at the bottom. The Dress itself is really good quality and is currently on sale for £49.00 which I think is the going kind of rate for a pretty dress for a wedding or party. It's also partially lined at the top, I know sometimes people prefer something to be fully lined but generally speaking I prefer them not to be so I can have the option of wearing a petticoat under. My only issue with the dress itself really is the sizing. Here I'm wearing a UK20 which does fit but only just, generally speaking I often size up with Curvissa as I think they run a little small sometimes. I'm also only 5'2 so its a little long in the body for me but nothing a was it belt wouldn't fix!
Due to it being a little snug I decided to wear my cheap corset over the top! Originally I was going to wear it underneath but I thought it would make it look a little different on top and I actually really like how the look has turned out! I then picked out the vibrant pink colour within the flowers to match my lips and heart shaped bag which I then accessorised with my heart necklace. I popped a pair of subtle glitzy flats on as if you're at something all day and wearing a corset I'd probably choose flats for a little more comfort!
Overall I'd give this dress a 4 out of 5 stars as other than the fit issue on me it's a wonderfully made garment that I feel wouldn't look dated easily and would last a good while too!
