With just over a week away until Halloween, I’m letting my festive spirit take over. I find myself wanting to put a spooky spin on just about every outfit I wear. Thankfully, I received this gorgeous Renaissance dress from Dare to Wear just in time for the holiday.
Before, I do my usual outfit breakdown, I wanted to talk to you about Dare to Wear. As I mentioned above, I was recently approached to collaborate with this romantic, Vicotorian-inspired clothing company. So rarely do we see this sort of fashion available for plus size bodies like mine, so it was a real treat to have them pop up in my inbox. If you haven’t already checked out the website by now, its worth mentioning that they go up to a 5x! Amazing, right? Now follow the cut for my review on this darling little dress.
I knew I wanted this dress the second I laid eyes on it. The sleeves and rhinestone detailing along the bust and sleeves really had my attention. I picked a 2x, which was quite suitable for me. The garment has loads of stretch and sat extremely well on my body. At 5’8, the garment hit my knees which was a perfect length for me.
I opted to pair this piece with my fav velvet booties, lace collar and of course, a witches hat. Why not take full advantage while the season is in the air? Off season, I’d probably axe the hat and play up my makeup a little bit more. Maybe a pair of fishnet tights or knee high boots? The possibilities are truly endless!
