Lala Belle

Back in 2011 I had the pleasure of flying up to Sydney and shooting a look book with Lala Belle and featured some of the items and images from the shoot in a full blog post.

From the moment I slipped into their stunning designs, a full blown lust affair was started and I've been loving every season since. But this spring season, one dress stood out above all others for me. With a flirty almost pinup shape I have found 'the' dress for my shape and I'm smitten. 

I'm positive this dress was made for my body shape! The 2 way stretch Jersey fabric hugs my curves in all the right ways and feels absolutely amazing. With a bodycon shape that is great for hourglass girls, square neckline and flared sleeves this will be my go to dress for spring and summer! 

I'm wearing the Resort Flounce Dress in a size XS and as you can see if fits like a glove. Most polka-dot fabrics can look odd if too fitted and the dots can change shape but as you can see this print is perfect all over and there are no issues with fit. 

My favourite feature has to be the flared sleeve and flounce skirt hem. No matter what size I've been, I've never liked my upper arms as they carry so much more weight than the bottom half. This dress softly floats over your upper arm, hiding any issues you may have. This is also a brilliant feature for the warmer months as you don't have clinging fabric under your arms and it's super breezy! The flounce skirt will also inspire you to twist, shake and twirl. Can't wait to wear this out dancing! 

While I usually wear a more deep v or sweetheart neckline I'm actually loving the square shape featured on this garment. The higher neckline helps emphasize my hourglass shape and draws your eye to my waistline! This dress is also lined with the a plain black 2 way stretch jersey so there is extra shaping and no see through fabrics. Please note I'm wearing a corset with this dress for extra shape and the Jersey fabric can show the steel bones/bottom of the corset at times. 

While I styled this in a more Autumn style pinup look you can slip this dress into every season and go crazy with accessories. Simply styled for spring, paired with bold colours such as red or yellow over the summer and then layered with cardigans, trench coats and more in winter. This dress is amazing and a great investment for your wardrobe. 

This is just one of many new season dresses available at Lala Belle. I'm currently lusting after these beauties for summer! Bright tropical prints for the warm summer heading our way. I love the bold colour choices on crisp white cotton! Then one item I'm in super lust with full skirted lace layering dress. This dress is sexy, dark, and a little spooky - just like me! I'd style this dress with underwear as shown, bodysuits in black and even with a cute figure hugging bodycon underneath. 

My photographer for this shoot is the always AMAZING Brooke Orchard. I'm so grateful I get to create amazing images with this talented and stunning woman.
