It’s no secret that Miss Candyfloss is one of my favourite vintage reproduction brands on the market and so often they are the dresses I reach for when I want to have the benefits of both comfort and style.
Late last year, Miss Candyfloss bought out a new style, The Geneva-Gia in several different colours. The first one I received was the tartan version and so adored the fit that I knew it would become a new staple. When the green was released, the lovely Noemi sent me one since a red-headed gal can never have too many green dresses in her closet (although I’m sure Matt would disagree!).
The Geneva-Gia is a really stunning design. It features a scoop necked collar with a secured bow detail, self covered buttons and of course the matching Miss Candyfloss belt. Made out of the usual polyester/viscose/spandex blend fabric that a lot of the Miss Candyfloss dresses are made from, this dress doesn’t wrinkle easily hence why I always seem to be wearing one when travelling!
I own quite a number of Miss Candyfloss dresses and the after some trial and error I decided that a size Medium was consistently better than a Small. I’m in between the two sizes and with some dresses I probably could size down to the small but the risk is that the bust will be too tight or for some styles, the arms too tight and restrictive. The medium fits comfortably with room to move and breathe! Because of this though, it does mean that the belts are always too big for my waist but that’s ok as I can either punch new holes or add my own belt for the personal finishing touch.
Thank you to David Fisk Photography for the wonderful shots inside Cahoots, the coolest bar in London! I love all the images from this shoot and am a little sad that this is the last post from it. Make sure that you watch the Behind The Scenes video on my YouTube Channel!
