WhatLauraWore: Lovedrobe GIVEAWAY

You know that feeling you get when you put on an outfit and you just feel gorgeous?  Well that’s exactly how I felt wearing this outfit:

I’d taken the Cobalt Blue Lace Contrast Dress* from Lovedrobe away with me on honeymoon and I’d worn it a couple while we were in Barbados.  However it was only when I got home and wore it out for a farewell dinner with one of my friends that I truly realised just how beautiful the colour of this dress is.  I felt gorgeous wearing it from the colour to the cut, I cannot recommend it enough!

The Cobalt Blue Lace Contrast Dress is a chiffon style skater dress with lace detailing at the top.  Don’t worry about this being too revealing- it isn’t at all and sits at just the right height.  The chiffon is actually a floaty overlay and the dress is full lined underneath.

The dress length of the dress is roughly a true knee length, which is rare in plus size fashion as I often find garments divorcing my knees and looking more like mini dresses.  Of course that depends on your height but I’m 5ft 5″.  It comes in two colours, this cobalt blue colour and it is also available in peach here.  The dress is sleeveless but you could easily add a cardigan or a shrug if you prefer to cover up your arms.

What makes this dress super comfortable to wear is the elasticated waistband which is very generous in size, in fact the whole dress is a very comfortable fit, I’d say it is a little larger in size than it should be.  This isn’t an issue if you’ve ordered your usually size as the elasticated waistband will fit your waist and the dress has that effortlessly chic relaxed look anyway.  What this does mean though is that although the dress goes up to a 24, I’d definitely recommend still checking it out if you’re a 26 or even a 28 as there is a lot of give in the material.  Hooray!

The kind people over at Lovedrobe have offered readers of WhatLauraLoves a 20% discount on their website until the 21st June 2014.  All you have to do to get the discount is to enter the code WLLBLOG at the check out.  They’re also hosting a giveaway on my blog so keep reading to find out how you can enter…

The cobalt blue of this dress is so beautiful that I wanted it to stand out in its own right by pairing it with more neutral accessories however looking at the images, I think they look pretty special themselves.  My bag is by Rebecca Minkoff and its called the Mini Mac in the colour biscuit.  I absolutely love it and have been wearing it constantly since I bought it in America.  I’m actually thinking of buying another from her as I’ve used this one so much already, I’d really like a black one to go with my winter outfits.  You can order online from the American site which I may just save up and do!

The shoes I’m wearing are my new nude wedges from Primark.  Hand on heart, these are the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn.  They’re available in a coral red, blue, black and nude and I can’t urge you to go and buy them enough, especially if your feet usually hurt when wearing heeled shoes.

    Your dress looks lovely, that colour really suits you and it goes perfect with those shoes. I've just been looking on the Lovedrobe website and I like the dresses, but my favourite is the Ladies Basic Navy Fleece Hoodie.

    First things first, a huge congratulations on becoming a Mrs and I hope you had an amazing honeymoon – by the sounds of it you did :). You look absolutely gorgeous in this dress, the style is really flattering and the colour just makes you glow. I recently purchased a new Lovedrobe dress, it is also a skater cut and is a bright, almost neon orange with a lace cut-out overlay – the dress is gorgeous and makes me so confident I am actually going to be rocking it bare legged, bring on the rays! xxxBarbie Sparkles | UK Beauty Blog

    That is the perfect shade for a tropical honeymoon. Smart to pair it with neutrals to really let the blue pop. Black accessories would have been more dramatic for a completely different look, but nude was perfect for a light, beachy look. Really lovely! Thanks also for hosting this giveaway!<3 Lizwww.withwonderandwhimsy.com

    http://www.lovedrobe.co.uk/koko-greenmulti-animal-print-blouse.html I think this is beautiful, gutted I can't get it in my size but so glad to have found Lovedrobe through your blog because my dads wife can never find pretty fashionable clothes to fit her body shape so will be showing her, she'll be thrilled.
