WhatLauraWore: Lemon Dressing

Today I wanted to share with you my favourite dress in my wardrobe; the lemon dress from AX Paris.  As soon as I saw this dress on the AX Paris website, I knew I had to have it; it was love.  I wanted something a little different to wear to Plus North, a fashion event for plus sized girls held in Leeds, and I knew that this dress would be it.  After all, if you’re in a room with other plus sized girls, you would want to wear something a little different to limit the risks of turning up in the same outfit as someone else!  I figured this eye-catching lemon number fit the bill.

The cut of this dress is fantastically flattering and a prime example of how AX Paris have made their Curve collection for a truly curvy figure.  The elasticated waist band fits to your true figure and the chiffon skirt floats over a bit of a tummy, like in my case, or bottom, flattering those areas rather than emphasising or hiding them.  The wrap over deep v neck is again flattering, sexy and is perfect for those with an ample bust.  I’m not particularly well endowed in the breast department so the dress fits a little largely on me here but because the elastic waistband draws the dress in at my thinnest part under my bust, it fits perfectly.

This dress has actually just gone on sale on the AX Paris website for only £14.99!  Click here to go to the AX Paris website to check it out and the other sale items from the regular and curve line.

I paired the dress with black accessories so as not to detract from the vibrant yellow in the lemons on the top of the dress.  I feel as though adding yellow accessories would cheapen the look of the dress and it would lose its unique design.  A dress like this doesn’t deserve to fade into the background!

    I absolutely adore that dress! I'm too scared to go on the website though, as I'll end up spending money I don't have! xxx
