Chi Chi Clothing | Elsa Dress ♥

 I'm such a dress lover, you'll rarely ever catch me wearing anything other then a dress and I'll admit that I have a particular penchant for anything floral. However, when I got the chance to sample one of Chi Chi Clothing's gorgeous dresses I was absolutely delighted when this stunning Elsa Dress arrived at my door. Elsa is the perfect moniker for this dress, it's elegant and beautiful just like the queen from Frozen. It has so many intricate details with lots of soft gold mesh detailing and capped sleeves, it really is such a beautiful thing to look at. The main colour is a stunning cornflower blue which I think is a fabulous shade for spring and summer. 

 I honestly felt like such a princess whilst wearing this dress. I think the dress is stunning enough to be used as a bridesmaids dress or even a wedding dress if you're wanting something a bit more unique than the usual whites and ivory. The dress is tea dress style and midi length which is the perfect length for formal occasions, which is where I'd wear this dress to. It has a mesh underskirt which gives great volume to the skirt of the dress and it's nice to twirl around in too (the princess vibe and all that!).

For me the dress has a real vintage feel to it. All the detailing takes me back to those amazing dresses you see from yesteryear that are just awe-inspiring to look at. So much detailing has gone into this dress making it something truly special. My favourite part of the dress is it's neck and back lines with their scalloped edging, it has quite a regal feel to it - definitely a nod to Elsa!

 The dress also has a padded bust which I have to admit I don't really need. The only problem I had with the dress is that it has a side zip at the bust. I know I'm not alone in thinking that side zips like this are no good for us larger chested ladies. A back zip is fine, I can get the girls into anything easily then but a side zip is a no go. 

 I absolutely love this dress and will be wearing it at some stage over the summer, hopefully for a romantic afternoon tea or meal with my other half. My mother has her eye on the dress too, she thinks it's amazing and she's not wrong!

The Elsa Dress is available in sizes 6 to 24 and is £66.99. You can find the Elsa Dress and browse the other beautiful dresses Chi Chi Clothing have to offer on their website.

  1. What a gorgeous dress! You're right, it really does deserve the Elsa name. It looks absolutely wonderful on you.

    I have my oldest friend's wedding coming up this summer, and for some reason I thought Chi Chi only catered for skinny minnies. I'll definitely be popping over there to have a look for something suitable!

  6. Stunning! Love the lace overlay at the top! I tend to wear dresses more in the spring and summer so I'll need to check this site out ASAP. I occasionally wear dresses in the winter, but I must have tights and boots to keep my legs warm. :)

  12. You look gorgeous. I love that dress. Usually I think "frilly" dresses make women look ridiculous, but this one pulls it off. I think its because of the silvery gray fabric underneath. Whatever it is I think it's great.

  34. This dress is so beautiful! You look amazing in it.. I haven't been much of a dress person over the years, for one reason or another. Main reason is I can never find one that matches my height, which is super tall, haha. But this is a style I would actually wear. I love it.
