Spring in Australia is literally one day away and I just had to dress up for the occasion!
The whole “minimal trend” is starting to make way for “over the top styling” with patterns, florals, lace, mixed textures, ruffles, volume and more.
I picked out this Majorelle Portia Dress because I love a good wrap dress!
It’s not too “over the top”, but it’s just perfect for me. I know it’s the kind of dress I’ll wear a lot.
It’s a very flirty style – deep V neck (not wide though), short mini skirt, ruffled details, big bow. Makes me look 5-10 years younger I reckon haha.
The sleeves are longer than usual, which is a nice thing. It keeps it balanced and slightly modest (ok maybe not).
I think you have to have boobs for this dress, or at least wear a kick ass push up bra (I wear this one!), and be happy to show a bit of cleavage.
I like that the V is narrow. I dislike wearing wide V necks, because I hate wearing double-sided tape.
Since it’s a wrap dress, I did have some concerns about the dress unwrapping and “popping open”, as there are no buttons or zips to keep it together. It’s like wearing a robe?
The only way you are stopping the world from seeing your girls, is with your ability to tie a knot.
I never did any girl guides courses, so I made two shoelace knots, and a bow at the end. Looks a bit wonky but it did the job!
* Sometimes I like to use a hidden safety pin JUST TO BE SURE, but I didn’t have to in this case, because the length of belt is wide, so you can feel it firm in place against your skin.
Anyway, I love that it’s a simple WOW dresses, that tucks in at all the right places and makes you feel like a million bucks.
I’m wearing a Size XS and I’m usually a size AU6. When it was first released, the dress was completely sold out, then restocked. It’s now on Pre-Order, so more are coming soon.
Remember, Revolve have free returns for Australian customers!
Can’t wait for that Spring weather!
