If cute vintage dresses are your thing then the Scarlett and Jo Lollidot Heart Print Dress is sure to make you smile.
It is a tabard style plus size dress which was inspired by the 80’s film, Pretty Woman. It is a very classically feminine style and features a drop shoulder for more of a relaxed look and an elasticated waist for shape, fit and comfort.
Scarlett and Jo describe the colour as burgundy but id say that its too pink to be burgundy, more raspberry. Either way, the colour is gorgeous and looks fabulous when paired with a similar lip colour. The one I’m wearing is the NYX Soft Mate Lip Cream in San Paulo and I’m really impressed with the formula and colour pay off. It has a gorgeous finish and is so comfortable to wear.
The raspberry backdrop of the dress is complimented beautifully by the white heart print all over the dress and the tiny lollidots inside them. The hearts really stand out and if you love more of a cutesy style then I’m sure you’ll love this print.
The great thing about this dress is that it is so easy to dress up with a pair of heels or dress down with some sandals like I have with these white cleated sole, River Island beauties. This is very much a daytime look for me with a Guess bag and Michael Kors sunglasses.
The dress is light weight which makes it ideal for wearing during the summer months as it is airy, doesn’t cling and will keep you cool.
While the majority of pieces that I’ve tried from Scarlett and Jo are true to size, I’d say that Lollidot Heart Print Dress in particular runs on the large side. It is very flattering on the body and the elasticated waist creates a great shape on anyone, plus the fabric skims over any lumps and bumps, so really it just depends on the kind of fit you’d prefer from your dress.
Personally, I think I could have sized down in this piece.
Fancy picking one of these dresses up for yourself? They’re available in sizes 14 to 32.
