At the end of February, I shared my stand out favourites from the La Belle Heroine range and then quickly followed this with a full review of more items from that range, but there was one stand out item that was not in my hands in time for that review, and I waited ever so impatiently for it to arrive - The Sgt. Dollbaby Cardigan!

When I was told about the new range the phrase that stuck out most is that it would be 'full of Teer-style items' and when I got the previews I was blown away with all of the military style, figure hugging items.

The one item that blew me away was this stunning military inspired cardigan with all the trimmings. Made from super stretchy black knit adorned with gold buttons, embroided stars and gold piping this cardigan is the perfect mix of strong military styling with feminine figure hugging shapes. One of my favourite features has to be the stand up collar which is unique to the W&DB range of knitwear. 

Now if you follow all of my Wheels & Dollbaby reviews you will know that I can wear anything from a size 10 to a 16. But for this item I went for a 16 so that there would be no pull on the buttons and extra room for my large bust. It's a perfect fit all over yet a little roomy on the lower half of the 3/4 length sleeve which I assume is due to the piping feature. 

The Sgt. Dollbaby cardi has now become a wardrobe staple for me as the weather gets chilly and looks amazing with everything from wiggle skirts to full swing styles and pairs wonderfully with high waisted black skinny jeans. My only accessory on this shoot was a simple black beret but I'm dying to get my hands on some vintage military caps to pair with this look. So if you are sitting on the fence with this new style cardigan I urge you to get this ASAP! I could have sized down if I wanted to wear this open as it's super stretchy and there are still 14's in stock via the online store.

Leopard Day Dress  - $310.00

While shooting this amazing cardigan, I had to sneak in my new favourite dress for Autumn/Winter which is the Leopard Day Dress. I was searching high and low for a super cute dress to wear to my Hucks (hens/bucks) day/evening and this little leopard number ticked all the boxes. 

Made from a plush stretch leopard jersey that fits like a second skin, the day dress is a almost like the Dita Cardigan in dress form. With the iconic peter pan collar and velvet bow tie combination this style falter both small and large sized bust. I'm wearing this dress in a size 14 and I was blow away by the fit! For this photo shoot I chose to show a little cleavage but this dress also buttons up with no issues over my GG chest which is usually unheard of. So if you have a large bust there are so many options to choose from at Wheels & Dollbaby. My favourite way of styling this dress is to pair it with stunning black stockings, berets and leather driving gloves and it works both day and night.


Many thanks to the always brilliant and super fun to work with Rom Anthonis for collaborating with me for this shoot and I can't wait to work with you again!
