Here are three great things that happened to me recently:
I reached 900 followers on Instagram. YAY.
I booked a fun weekend away with my best friends.
ELVI sent me the dress I’m wearing in today’s post and I’m feeling like a highkey princess/lowkey queen.
As soon as I got the opportunity to collaborate with ELVI, I was so ridiculously excited. Let me just a share a little info from their site:
“At ELVI we passionately believe that size does not dictate our design. In everything we do, we believe women deserve to look and feel great in their own skin. So with us, you can express yourself through fashion that’s right for you, whatever your shape or size, be it work, rest or play. We include, not exclude.”
Can we just have a round of applause for this brand? A label that celebrates diversity when it comes to shape, colour and style. Scrolling through the brand’s homepage is a breath of fresh air, and we share the exact same beliefs so that’s always a bonus.
Scrolling through ELVI’s was a struggle I’m not going to lie. I had to pick one item and there were eleven tabs open and I’m one of the most indecisive people in the world. After a couple of days (I’m not joking) I finally decided on the Evelyn Textured Organza Midi Dress because the fabric just stole my heart. There’s also a matching Trench Coat and it’s going straight on my wish list. When looking through the selection of occasionwear, the first thing I noticed was each item of clothing is shown on both an average size and a plus size model, which is a tool I never knew I needed. When I shop online, I usually just guess what the clothes will look like on me, but with the use of two types of models, I can actually see the clothing fit on two different body shapes. ELVI is coming through!
There was a huge amount of dresses on the site but I’m extremely happy with my choice. It’s giving me full princess vibes! Wearing this dress makes me want to constantly twirl around and act like Duchess Meghan. Meghan and Blake Lively are two of my biggest style icons (especially when it comes to dresses) and I feel like they would approve of this outfit. Wearing anything that makes you feel like the best version of yourself is the wonderful thing about fashion, and I think that’s ELVI’s mission when it comes to their collection. The fashion industry is considered to be quite cold and cut-throat, and while it can be, there’s this really cool element of bringing joy and confidence to each individual, depending on what they wear.
The texture of this dress is absolutely beautiful, I had real fabric envy when I first laid my eyes on it. The dress comes with an under layer which provides the opacity for the lighter, textured fabric. The neckline is one of my favourite features because it’s so feminine and you really see the effect of the two layers. Now that I’ve had a little taste of what it’s like to dress like a princess, I feel like this is it for life. I’m aiming for the stars now!
