I Heart Aurora

After the absolute success of my first Wax Poetic Clothing order I knew it would only be a matter of months until I got my hands on a few newer pieces. I've been eyeing off the Aurora for a while in tow stunning prints but it wasn't until the Red Rose version was released that I knew I'd found my perfect wrap dress.
 
 


A true wrap style featuring an extra long waist tie, flattering flutter sleeves, and a super soft brushed fabric that feels like pure magic to wear.



I swear I could wear only wrap dresses for the rest of my life and die happy. The Aurora is stunning, so very comfortable as I can adjust the fit as loosely or as tight as I may need depending on the day. I can adjust the bust to show as much or as little of my cleavage as wanted.



The large red, pink and white rose print is a piece of art. I'm usually all about a tiny floral print but there is something so very magical about this large size rose fabric.



There is something so very magical about the flowing sleeves on this dress and I think it's safe to say that  this style sleeve is now my ultimate. The way the fabric delicately falls over my upper arm is amazingly flattering and so chic.



I'm wearing an XXL and the fit is around a half a size larger on me that I should it may be but due to the wrap styling it's not an issue. I simply tie the extra long waist tie tighter for the perfect fit.

 
Emma Dress - TBA coming soon

Next I was lucky enough to get the sample for a new style that's not even hit the website yet!!! The Emma is a perfect little Mod style dress with some of the most figure flattering tailoring features I've ever come across.



The traditional short Mod mini style with appropriately positioned darts on the bodice to give a form fitting and slimming shape. I'm usually not one to wear a short sleeve, high necked mod dress but as soon as I wriggled into this little maroon number I instantly fell in love.



I love the fit, the soft fluffy fabric and how it really does show off my curves in the best kind of way. I'm wearing this in a XXL and the fabric is super stretchy and amazingly comfortable.



Styling wise I've paired this with absolutely nothing as it's such a cute little frock to start with! But I'll be wearing this to work asap and styling it with either a cardigan or moto jacket. Now I need to hunt for a cute pair of gogo boots to match!

  1. I love your style and courage. I would love to branch out away from my mom capris and swing tops and wear more dresses but I have chubby thighs that rub together. Would love to know what you wear under your dresses to keep your thighs from rubbing together that doesn't hang below the hem of the dress.

    1. Hi lovely! I don't tend to wear anything and only tend to get that issue when I'm in super hot heat at long weekend festivals but not too often sorry.

      I do know that companies like https://www.bandelettes.com/ now exist and provide stylish cute options to counteract the rub!

      For sleepwear I tend to go towards bodysuits or high waists and avoid shorts.
