Embroidered With a Twist

September 18, 2016

We all love embroidery, personally I love story telling embroidery - the one that makes you dream, the one that reminds me of fairytales, of forgotten times. Embroidery can be mysterious, fun, a work of art...but above all, it is feminine. It has that je ne sais quoi, so it's definitely timeless

But what happens when you mix embroidery with masculine elements and sportswear? It changes the whole story! I love mixing items that apparently don't work together at all, it's my speciality. 
I had my eyes on this dress for quite some times, and here it is: a long, story telling, embroidered dress from VIPmeThe dress can be found on this link - here at an extremely affordable price. Don't panic, the dress came together with a short black slip dress that actually goes underneath, but I don't like it that way, I prefer wearing sporty black lingerie. I will wear the slip dress perhaps in a different combination.

 A small review: I am 5'9 and the length of the dress is just perfect. I love the colourful embroidery, it looks like I'm wearing an entire garden, on a sunny summer day (even if it's September and London it's rainy and cold today). I bought a size L because they come up pretty small and this one fits perfectly (I'm actually UK size 8).
Oh, please remember: in case your order on VIPme is over £15, you will need to pay duty tax, which in my case was £28 (DHL delivers it). So be prepared for that too.

Socks and trainers? My favorite combo. With the right attitude, you can wear these whenever and wherever you want. Choose lower socks if you are petite.
Let me tell you a bit about VIPme: their parent company VIP.com started its humble beginning in Fangcun, Guangzhou, China in 2008.
