It is no secret that I am a sucker for a vintage style dress, so when I kept seeing Dolly & Dotty popping up all over my social media newsfeed, and seeing they went up to a size 24, you can imagine how ecstatic I was when they agreed to send me something to review!
I was asked to give them a couple of styles I particularly liked, one of which was the Evelyn, and I was particularly drawn to the cherry print. The lovely ladies at Dolly & Dotty advised they would get one of my choicest out to me and the very next day it all arrived, with a lovely free gift of this amazing tote bag, which has had lots of use since carrying my heels to change into once I get to work every day.
The dress has a high neckline, which is not my normal style, but this is why I wanted to try it as it is something different to what I normally wear. What you notice immediately with Dolly & Dotty is the exceptional quality. The quality is as good, if not better than, other vintage repro stores and without (in some cases) the price tag!
I adore this dress, and in particular the print, and with the sun now finally making an appearance I am looking forward to wearing it lots and lots! I probably won’t wear the belt much though, a) because I am not much of a belt person anyway, but also b) not only with Dolly & Dotty, but with many other brands also I find the dresses/garments fit beautifully but the belts never seem to be the right size for me…. This was no exception, I find it small, even though the dress fit well, could even be deemed generous, but the belt was a struggle to get on the last hole (although I did as you can see…. just). Maybe I am an odd shape, but this hasn’t clouded my view in the slightest, and I only have praise and positive things to say about this brand and their products.
I know that some of my fellow Blogger Babes have reviewed items, and these can be found here (Rosie – in the same dress, see how it fits on a different size) and here (Tanya), and here you will see some of the other gems available at D&D.
Have you checked out Dolly & Dotty yet, do you in fact already have some of their products in your wardrobe? I’d love to hear what you think of them…. I think they are fab!
