Spotted in a pretty little shop in East Sussex Luella’s sequin neck sleeveless linen shift is a one size fits all pretty-as-a-picture dress with simple pleats at the neckline, side seam pockets and a mother of pearl sequinned neck and button fastening. It’s designed to skim your figure rather than hug it and so is lovely on warm summer days and evenings.
You won’t find this dress in any department store as the line is only sold in small boutiques (as far as I have seen), but I’ve discovered it online in pale lime green, raspberry and blueberry. It also comes in pale turquoise and when I find it online I’ll let you know.
This is a very flattering, fun and sexy little dress. Quite short on a tall person and really designed to fit sizes 10 – 14. You’ll probably want it in all colours - a carefree summer dress that will really take you anywhere and is just that little bit different from what’s on the high street is rare. Even if you may have to iron it occasionally.
Just a note, the dress is slightly cut in at the shoulders and so you’ll need to wear it with a strapless bra. And heels.
You’ll find this dress at Woodstock and Cavendish online and also here, where I found it, but you’ll need to call to order.
