WhatLauraWore: Virus Conqueror

Things have been a little sleepy over on WhatLauraLoves over the last few days and that’s because my laptop managed to become infected with a virus that locked down the system and took over my webcam.  Needless to say, I’ve upgraded my anti virus software, put a rather technical looking sticking plaster over the webcam and now, I’m back in action with a WhatLauraWore outfit post and today, its a good one. 

The dress I’m wearing here is the Cream Bird Print Lace Trim Dress from Yours Clothing and I absolutely LOVE IT.  The print is simply beautiful, quite vintage looking and very feminine.  The colourful artistic print compliments the cream background well and the black lace trim really enables this dress to be both daytime and evening appropriate.  I found that the sizing runs a little generously but the dress still fit well as it has an elasticated waist that pulls the dress in.  This is my favourite shape and design feature to look out for when choosing dresses as they cinch in at my smallest part.  Whilst I’m wearing this dress in a glam and girlies way with bare legs and some wedges, it would look equally cute with some leggings and ballet flats too.

Its not often I comment on the delivery service for a company but the service I received when receiving items from Yours was absolutely fantastic.  My order arrived the next day and I got a message on the morning with a 1 hour time slot as to when my parcel would be delivered that I could reply to to give my permission for it to be left with a neighbour if I wasn’t going to be in or to have it delivered on another day- fantastic.

What are your favourite summertime outfits?  How would you style this dress?

    This dress is gorgeous and really suits you! Just a quick question! The bottom half looks quite floaty and like it skims across any lumps and bumps…is that the case? I hate putting a dress on and it showing the curves of my belly off 🙁 TIA! Xx

      Yes I'd say thats right, its elasticated and pulls you in under the bust then the rest of the dress just skims over everything else! xxx
