The team at Birdsnest Online Store have been very busy this season! With a site FULL of gorgeous clothes for real women, they have been selling literally thousands of dresses (and other things) to a lot of very happy customers.
You can seriously get lost in online shopping heaven on this site :)
They recently launched their Summer Catalogue, with lots of inspiration to browse through. And for those who are keen for a bit of styling help, the team has put together a beautiful Style Guide that you can personalise to suit your body type and personal style.
Well they let me go crazy on the site, and I picked my favourite dresses to have a play. Behold!
This is the Zulu Dance dress by Ladakh, which includes the skinny pink belt. I picked it because I loved the pattern (with specks of lime), and it looked really versatile for work, and for dressing up or down.
It felt lovely to wear, it fit perfectly, hung nicely, not too tight, very comfortable to move in. I could spend all day in it, and just change my jacket. I really liked this one.
This stunning dress is called Moroccan Heatwave by Seduce. I LOVE the aqua colour – so vibrant and bright! I really like the layers and the asymmetric hem, making it short at the front and long at the back. And the sweetheart neckline is gorgeous too.
I’ve worn it with a pink belt from Dotti and purple suede shoes from Betts.
This dress is coincidently also called the Moroccan High Low Dress, by Living Doll. I felt like such a Grecian goddess! Again it has the asymmetric hem that I like. It is made up of a short slip (opaque) and the outer slip, which is sheer and floaty.
Polka Dots! I wasn’t sure about this dress when I saw it and chose it on the site, but after wearing it, it felt like such a great, simple, little dress.
Perfect for AM to PM wear, or just worn casually as a summer daytime dress. Good for short people too, like me. It’s called the Try Your Luck Dress by MinkPink.
Clutch from ALDO, belt (gift), red suede shoes from Betts.
Ooh this is the cutest summery dress ever! It only cost $49 too. Pretty print, beautiful colours, easy to wear, comfy and stretchy – I love it! It’s called the Rivers of Babylon Dress by MinkPink.
Would also love a maxi dress version of it too.
Hat from Sportsgirl, belt from LOEF, gladiator sandals from Zu Shoes.
Rough Hearts Dress by Ladakh, in yellow! As you can tell, my curls fell out after several hours, but I love the beachy hair look! Very fitting for this dress. Simple, bright, cute, summery, light, comfortable and so sweet.
I don’t think I’ve ever worn an all-yellow dress before. I think it looks OK on me, I like it!
I’m holding a vintage envelope clutch and wearing tan strappy heels by Betts.
