Have you sorted your Christmas outfit yet? Alongside the Christmas parties, Christmas Jumper day and those visits to the Christmas markets in the run up of the festive day there are also outfits to be planned for Christmas day and New Years Eve to glam yourself up if you spend it with the family or attend a party on NYE. This year thankfully I had a little help from the nice folks over at Pink Clove who let me choose a party dress so I could get all dressed up ready for the party season!
Pink Clove are a plus size fashion company who have lots of nice clothes in Size 16 all the way up to a Size 28. I know how much I struggle being a Size 18 so it was nice to see a whole website just for us plus size girls to make choosing the perfect festive outfit just a little bit easier! First impressions when browsing the shop for a selection was very positive and I love the fact that the models are actually plus size! I have seen far too many online retailers just putting the word plus size underneath a picture of a size 6 model with hardly any boobs and its hard for me to imagine what my curvy body will actually look like in the outfit! So well done Pink Clove for nailing that!
I wanted a nice dress to wear for my German Christmas Party as well as New Years Eve and I had plenty to choose from the Plus Size Dresses section from high neck, low-cut, mini and midi lengths and more.
In the end I decided to go with the Plus Josephine Black Lace Overlay Embroided Dress which is available in Size 16-24 and because it’s a rather generous fit the Size 16 was perfect on me. The camisole underneath the lace dress is made out of jersey so it wont slide around like the normal satin ones do and best of all its sown into the shoulder part so no danger of the straps slipping off and the dress is machine washable too!
You might notice that the stock picture on the link above does show the dress in a short sleeve version and I am modelling the exact same but with long sleeve I have been send this version despite the tag on the packaging and the recipe stating its the exact product shown on the link. I actually don’t mind the long sleeves especially in the colder winter months its nice to have the arms covered up.
The flowers are printed on and the elastic waist band sits just right on the top part of the stomach for me ( I am 5ft 6 btw). I am normally not a fan of high neck dresses and prefer to show a bit off skin but with the dress being mesh I can decided how low i want to wear the under cami which is perfect:
I am one of those people who always sticks to the same brands because I am worried that the quality, sizing and fit are just not for me but I am glad I took a chance in trying out Pink Clove I think for 30£ this is a perfectly budget but good quality dress which I am sure I will wear in not only this festive season but for other special occasions too! Pink Clove offers Free delivery (above £40) and free returns as well as next day delivery for 3.95.
