Can you feel it? Spring is coming and I can see and smell it every where. Here in So. California its been warm and sunny with flowers blooming everywhere. I am so ready for spring fashion and loving the floral trends I have been seeing on the runways and magazines. I was doing my usual web browsing and came across a look on fashion icon Alexa Chung at the Elle Style Awards. Honestly I am not really a fan of Alexa Chung, but this look on her caught my attention. She attended the Elle Style Awards, in a flirty, delicate, fancy and floral frock by Erdem. Erdem is not a designer I was familiar with, but I loved the dress Alexa was wearing. I also liked she paired the fancy dress with some lower hear ankle strap shoes. It was a very simple look over all but had so much character with the fancy floral on the dress. Seeing the Erdem dress on Alexa made me think of spring garden weddings and how this look would be wonderful. I immediately had to go searching for a plus size version of the Erdem dress.
I have always loved floral dresses, but this one takes it to another level. I call it fancy floral, wouldn't it be perfect for a garden wedding, afternoon tea or a fancy Sunday brunch? What ever the occasion may be, this fancy floral dress is sure to be a head turner. The dress is very feminine and flirty and you won't need too many accessories of extravagant shoes to complete the look.
Here is my Plus Size Universe version of the fancy floral dress.
As you can see there is no price for Erdem dress Alexa Chung is wearing, as its not even available for sale. Searching the Erdem website I did find similar type dress, which retail from $800 - $3000. What ever the price may be, its definitely out of my budget. Thank goodness for websites like Asos, who has a ton of dresses for more budget friendly prices. I found this Asos Curve floral dress for only $98. It's obviously not the exact style as the Erdem dress, but it gives the same feminine and flirty floral effect. Both dresses are sheer with bold floral prints and flirty skirt. I love the color combination on the Asos dress with the pink floral print and the darker teal background.
What do you think of this weeks Plus Size Universe? Are you looking forward to wearing a fancy floral dress this spring?
