One misconception that I think is still pretty common among plus size women is that we don't have enough clothing options readily available in size 14+. Ok, I'll concede with the fact that we don't have as many options as our straight size counterparts. But there are so many amazing brands out there, trying to create clothes that will help each of us fully express ourselves through fashion and style. One of my favorites is Lucie Lu.
It started with the Tatum dress, which I stumbled across online a few months ago, then spied in person at Bombshell Boutique. That dress represented something that resonated with me: feminine and flirty, a little sexy, unique and on-trend but still classic. I saw it and thought, "Yes. Yes! That's me."
After the Tatum dress, I bought the Delaney skirt direct from the Lucie Lu website. I was floored by how quickly I received my order and was thrilled to receive a handwritten note from Lucie herself. One thing led to another and she was kind enough to send me the Margeaux dress to review for you guys.
You might recognize the Margeaux dress from Lucky Magazine. It was featured in the magazine a couple months ago. It's a really great faux wrap dress, made of the softest knit and adorned with an ultra-feminine ruffle detail along the neckline and bust. The dress is available in four colors: Blue Iris, Pin Dot, Autumn, and Perfect Teal.
I chose the Pin Dot print, which is black with a black on gray polka dot pattern along the ruffles and sash.
I felt amazing in this dress; very powerful in a sexy librarian way. I played it safe for this first wearing, pulling on a pair of nude heels, Grandma Ruth's pine cone pendant and sporting a twisty ponytail. This dress is ripe for a variety of styling options: a brightly colored long sleeved tee and heels; a punchy cardigan with tights and boots; and different jewelry will all go a long way in extending its versatility. I can't wait to play!
