Lovely In Lace : Kaliko Dress Review...


Photo Credits: Kaliko
Whoop whoo, today is my Birthday. A day to leave the housework and get dressed up. Wear a bit of make up. Any excuse to wear a pretty dress, spend the day shopping, have a buffet lunch and eat lots of cakes :) Not forgetting to mention, how excited I am, having a visit from my eldest son, once he has done an exam at University.


A special dress then is needed. Perfect timing to receive this adorable lace dress for me to wear on my special day. Kaliko kindly sent me this Cornelli lace detail prom dress to review, did they know it was my Birthday?! When I opened the box it reminded me of Christmas getting something unexpected. Wow beautiful.


 I thought this is the perfect dress for Spring/Summer not to mention how fabulous it will look in Winter too. It is stunning. I love everything about the dress. In a beautiful pop, pink colour. The fit is perfect, it looks so stylish too. The material has that real quality about it. The style is so flattering. Fitted nicely around the bust, tucked in at the waist and a beautiful flare at the bottom. In an all over lace material with a silky belt to finish. This has to be my favourite style dress, EVER...

This dress will come in very handy this year from dressing down with Converse on a day out in London. Styling up with heels for a night out with my Husband. Also it will be my goto dress for any surprise special occasions that can crop up at any time.(I wish!!).  Do you think this too?

  24. Hi, i both 2 of these dresses, one for me and one for my mom. I bought it on sale not long ago. I've tried to get another one, but I don't seem to find the same one anywhere. Would you know how could I get my hand on a size 6? My mom and I gave it but I need one for my niece 2 so we all have the same. Please guide me. Thank you. BTW the dress is beautiful and it suits you beautifully
