I have always wanted to try The Pretty Dress Company and this brand does not disappoint! When I saw this new Hawaiian print range I could not resist reviewing it, I braved the very cold evening sea breeze to show off this beautiful wiggle dress.

The Ava dress is fully lined, has the most wonderful fit, is comfortable and did I mention that Hawaiian print??? Yes, yes I already did but I love it and I want the whole tropical collection now! The bows on the shoulders are another gorgeous dress feature and I think that they look so cute blowing in the wind too. I am wearing size 8 I find the size chart to be accurate so I ended up with a dress that has a great fit thanks to that. 

Summer can't come fast enough as I am excited to wear it again when the weather heats up, it's the perfect summer dress for evenings by the beach but could easily be worn during the day too with a bit of different styling to mix it up. The Pretty Dress Company dresses are also designed and made in the UK with so many beautiful designs to choose from. I have another stunning dress from this company coming to the blog soon once I shoot it! I'm really impressed with this brand and I was so excited when I opened my parcel when they arrived, they really are special additions to my wardrobe.

How was your weekend? Mine was quite productive and I managed to make a trip to the fabric store too, I went in to buy something practical for the dress I'm working on but ended up walking out with two new fabrics and five new sewing patterns. They were having a good sale, can you blame me?

  1. I was eyeing this dress on the PDC website. Nice to see it so beautifully modelled on you! It suits you to a tee, but I think you've confirmed it would be too short on me.

    Looking forward to seeing your sewing projects xx

  2. Wow what a gorgeous dress on you Kayla! I love the print and the wiggle style! :) There is a couple of dresses from the pretty dress company I would love to own, but they're way over my price range!

  3. I've never had my head particularly turned by the prints used on a lot of the PDC dresses but this one is gorgeous! Love the rich red and the way the pattern falls down the middle like that. Those straps are a great touch too - love a dress with shoulder details. I was always worried PDC would be too long on me but I think (unlike Porcelina!) I'd get away with this one :) x

    I love this dress and you look fantastic in it. Just wish you will keep your eyes out for more clothing from retailers who price their stuff as cheap as, say, 40.00 USD. There are many who'd love to wear what you do, but are priced out of it for obvious reasons. Still, this dress is a winner.

  5. The colour and the cut of the dress look absolutely perfect on you! I wish to own a PDC dress one day... They are so pretty!
