Sadly, today is the final post in my three-part La Parisienne series for Kitten D’Amour! You’ve already seen two glamourous and gorgeous wiggle styles but today it’s time for the oh-so-sweet La Parisienne Day Dress.
This dress is made from the same printed fabric that was featured on the blouse part of the Wiggle Dress I have previously reviewed (read here) – the print has beautiful illustrations of well-known Paris landmarks with very subtle pops of pastel colours, almost like a watercolour effect.
Featuring a ladder trim around the neckline, black contrast accents at the waist and polka dot band on the hem. The La Parisienne Day Dress has a bit more of a fun and flirty feel to it while still maintaining the sophistication of the collection.
Paired with the dress, are the absolutely lovely Cameo Lace Toe Shoes in Black. These shoes are so perfect for the entire collection and have beautiful lace detailing on both the toe and heel, finished off by a delicate bow and cameo. Not only do these look cute, but they are also incredibly comfortable with memory foam insoles – the ultimate combination!
As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, my 34″ bust puts me just over the size 6 and 25″ waist in between a size 6 and size 8. I’m wearing a size 6, but a 8 would have been better as there is no stretch to the fabric and it’s really quite tight across my chest. However, the waist was roomy on me even with the 6, which makes me think that perhaps the style of this dress is intended to be less fitted at the waist.
The La Parisienne Day Dress is slightly shorter in length than typical vintage reproduction and comes to about mid-knee on me (I’m 170cm), so just something to bear in mind if you are a taller gal.
Kitten D’Amourhttps://kittendamour.com/ create strictly limited edition runs of all their items, each one is labelled individually from 1 – 150 which is pretty special. The La Parisienne Day Dress is AUD$229 and comes in sizes 8 – 18.
