I’ve raved about this brand time after time, Rixo, the designs are simple yet punchy, they get people taking notice from the fluid shapes combined with the unique patterns all designed in-house. Best part of all, the two fabulous girls behind the brand are an absolute dream, and theres nothing like girls supporting girls.
I bought this dress at the beginning of the year, (size small which had to be altered slightly because I’m petite and it needed taking up at the shoulders.) I had been saving it for a big occasion, like an engagement party or fancy dinner, but the sun was shinning in London the other day, and I was headed to a party after a couple of meetings so decided to throw it on with my trusted Feiyues as a way to dress it down.
I felt great, yes it was slightly dressy but in the sun with trainers it worked. And I got a couple of comments on it as well which always makes you feel great!
So lets talk about the print. Everyone needs that little black dress, something in their wardrobe that is slightly smarter than the others and can carry you through perfectly from day to night. However, has the LBD expired a little? Do we need more now? YES. So enter the star print. The perfect way of bringing that night glamour in with a little side of sass.
Its all about the fit, it has to fit your body like a dream, and well, we’re all different shapes and sized which is the fabulous thing about this world, but it just makes it a little more expensive when buying RTW. So the fabric, on a Summer dress like this you want it to be silk, it will then flow around your body, and the lighter fabric is then perfect for layering. Secondly, if you’re spending that little extra on the perfect dress (trust me its worth it, they last a lot longer and I’m sure its these dresses that your’ll wear time after time for any occasion,) make sure you have it tailored — just pop to your local dry cleaners. Like I said we’re all different sizes and its great if it does fit you perfectly already, but if it doesn’t, get it altered!
