Vanity Project - Made by Limb

I have found the MOST amazing, brilliantly crafted and stunningly printed dresses on earth, if not the universe! My lovely readers I must introduce you to Vanity Project - Made by Limb.

A UK clothing brand based in Woodend Mill, a converted cotton mill in Greater Manchester, nestling at the edge of the Pennine Hills where its mostly sunny and hardly ever rains - Can I live there please? Creating vintage inspired dresses with the modern woman's shape in mind. 

Now this is a image heavy post so please keep looking and reading! All images were taken by my main girl for all things outdoor, natural and stunning - Katherine Davis Photography in Bendigo, Victoria. She is an amazing photographer that specializes in Weddings so if you are looking book here asap! 

This super flattering, perfectly constructed and stunning dress has me smitten. With a faux wrap bust, full pleated skirt, 3/4 sleeves and waist tie this dress has everything I look for in a garment. 

The design nips me in at the waist, shows off a great amount for my bust but yet not too much. The full shirt and fitted waist means I get the full hour glass figure I love so very much. 

Rainbows trying to sneak into my shot! 

I'm wearing the Day Dress in a size XL which is equivalent to a UK16 and the fit is spot on for my measurements. Even my rather large chest fits in the very fitted wrap style bust line. This garment is made from 100% cotton so there is not much give to the fabric but if you follow the size chart you will get the right fit. 

As you know I'm a little cowboy/cowgirl theme crazy these days so the fabric was what initially drew me in. Red cowgirl pinup print not what you are after? Well there is a blue version and a black version of this exact print! Western not your cup of tea? Not to worry as this dress is available in a total of 29 fabric variations!!!! So there will be one that is just right for you. 

Vanity Project is not limited to this one style of dress either. You can find 10 other vintage inspired styles on their website with many different print variations. So many choices, so many prints! You will feel like a kid in a candy store. 

I adore this dress not only for the print but the fit is just perfect for my figure. I want another 2 or 3 different fabric versions of this exact dress to add to my collection. I also adore and want a few versions of the Retro Frock which is a super cute sleeveless number.

These dresses will last your for many, many years and will be a brilliant investment. So why not add your favourite print and favourite style to your wardrobe right now. I will be! I can't get enough of Limb!!! 

Sorry for the photo overload but as you can see this dress looks amazing shot in trees. I've even given you guys a smiling shot of me which is really rare but I loved it! I'm laughing at my fiancee Jay as he is posing like me off camera. He was an amazing wardrobe stylist for this and many other shoots.
