Nell Circle Dress | TATYANA BOUTIQUE

I have made no secret for my love of tartan in the past, and it’s definitely one of those prints that I just can’t seem to get enough of! There doesn’t seem to be a point where I’m like ‘Ella, you have too much tartan in your wardrobe‘.

The limit simply does not exist.

Introducing the Nell Circle Dress by Tatyana Boutique, featuring a striking design and vivid blue and green plaid. I had seen this dress on the likes of my gorgeous friend @frantasy_island, so I was excited that it was to be included for this photoshoot in Paris for Tatyana Boutique.

The Nell Circle Dress has a velvet trim at the neckline, accentuating the keyhole detail and complimented by a matching velvet belt. The dress is a made of 100% polyester that has a slight stiffness to it which helps to give it a lovely full shape. The outer plaid fabric is see-through, so the dress is lined – I especially love the detail of the sweetheart bust lining!

In terms of sizing, this one was a little trickier for me. In my post from last week featuring the CEO Pencil Dress also from Tatyana, I wore the size XS and it was a perfect fit, especially since it has a lot of stretch.

The difference with the Nell Circle Dress is that the polyester has hardly any stretch at all. I’m still wearing a size XS, but I do think that a S would have been better for my bust as I had a small case of ‘pancake’ boob with this size. My advice would be to make sure that you take your measurements with the bra you plan on wearing with it (a strapless would work best) and then compare it to the size chart listed on the Nell Circle Dress product page.


Pair the Nell Circle Dress with your favourite blue and emerald green accessories and a cardigan if you are currently in the Northern Hemisphere! There’s more than enough room underneath the skirt to add a petticoat too if you fancy a bit of extra poof. The Nell Circle Dres is US$154 and comes in sizes XS – 4X

A big thank you to Tigz Rice for these images! This little corner in our Parisian apartment last month was like a green oasis and worked perfectly with this dress! Stay tuned, there’s more to come!

  2. It is gorgeous. There is such a lot of fabulous green fashion items lately in the retro Vintage world including in Tartan, but different to the usual Black Watch style. I absolutely adore green as a colour and in tartan too. Just perfect.
    Merry Christmas.

  3. This has got to be one of the loveliest dresses Tatyana has released in a long time (IMO anyway) and I am OBSESSED!! I love these colors and that neckline! Ah! Just amazing. Thank you for the sizing advice – I will definitely measure with my strapless bra as I did not even CONSIDER that and it will definitely help a gal like me who is between sizes!! 😉
