I've been waiting ever so impatiently for the dress of my dreams to be released. A stunning lace swing with the perfect sleeves, an amazing neckline and pockets! What is this magical dress you ask? It's the Vixen Decadence Swing Dress. From the moment this design was previewed it was on my lust list. Waiting for it to arrive at my favourite Australian based stockist, Natasha Marie Clothing was the hardest part but once the shipment arrived I got my order within days.

If you've not noticed yet I have a minor obsession with lace dresses with bright pops of colour beneath. From my green and black wedding dress to the recently shot 'not so wedding dress' with a soft grey underlining I'm 100% in awe of stunning lace creations. 

The Decadence Dress to put it simply is magnificent. Featuring full bishop/balloon sleeves and a stunning neckline finished off with a stretch lace and ribbon trim. The body of this piece comprises of a soft stretch ponte while the exterior lace is a soft imported Chantelle lace that has so much stretch and the look is completed with a 1 inch black belt. 

What I love most about Vixen pieces is the fact that no matter what shape or size you may be they will flatter your figure and make you look and fell like a star. 

I'm wearing this piece in a 2XL and the fit is super roomy. That roomy in fact that I'll be tailoring this down to more of an XL. I was silly when I preordered this piece and did not read the 'size down for a more fitted feel' recommendation. I'll definitely be wanting to size down to the XL in the all black version be it the swing or a wiggle ASAP. Tailoring this to be more fitted at the bust and waist should be very easy at the black/zip area of the garment. I love my bodices to be super snug and secure so this is a must. With the fit as is I can fit snacks down my bust he he he. 

Once I zipped up this piece, I fell in love with the stunning design features, though, and how they complimented my waist, bust line and hid my upper arms. The lace ruffle and ribbon features at the neckline make your boobies look amazing and the fitted waist compliments my curves.

The Bishop sleeves make me swoon as they cover up the bits I hate the most without adding too much bulk. Plus they are light enough to wear in the hot heat of our summer. 

The bright red pops through the black lace so perfectly at creates such a bold and iconic look and lets not forget about those hidden pocket. I've never owned a lace garment with deep pockets before and this piece offers the superdeep Vixen pocket we all love without compromising on the flow of the fabric in any way. 

I wore this piece on Christmas Day, and it was an absolute dream! So comfy and I could have avoided a purse as there is that much room in each pocket. 

I've paired the Decadence Dress with my beloved Pleaser corset heels and took some style inspo from the Designer herself with a wide brim hat.

This piece is available via Natasha Marie in a variety of sizes in red, black and the wiggle versions which I'm super keen to try! If you are local to Australia be sure to snap one of these amazing lace dresses ASAP!
