Rose Peaks from beneath Winter Snow

Hi guys!

Granted, there isn't any snow in London, but I really like the title, so indulge me. These photos were taken a little while ago but I loved them so much, there wasn't any doubt that they'd make it to the blog eventually. 

I've always been a fan of Hellbunny and already had a few of their dresses before falling in love with this one. I can't quite put my finger on when I first saw it, whether it was on a blog or IG, but I knew I had to have it, particularly when I saw that Simply Be were selling it. As soon as I put it on I knew that I'd wear it to death. 
Dress: Hellbunny (via Simply Be)
Cardigan: H&M (Burgundy currently out of stock online)
Leggings: South (via Very)^
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
I love a floral print, but rather oddly, I don't have many rose print dresses at all! I'm not sure how this mishap happened, but this dress is a dream addition to my Hellbunny collection. The dress is halter so I'd likely try to find a strapless bra or a bra with snazzy traps, to wear in the warmer months. I know halter isn't for everyone, but I personally don't find them uncomfortable or unsupportive, and I actually like that it's a rare contrast to the style of dresses I usually wear. The one continuous feature for me and this dress is that it has a vintage 50's-style shape and would look perfect with a petticoat underneath for self indulgent twirling. 

Another thing I love about this dress is the shirred back. I think every dress I have by Hellbunny has a shirred back, so it's obviously something they feel is important for their customers, particularly with a halter dress - being comfortable is key and that's exactly how I feel when I wear one of their dresses. The dress also has a well concealed zip at the back, so you have the option to wiggle into it or zip up and go at your leisure. 

I'm going to have so much fun switching this look up when it gets hotter - roll on spring! 

'til next time!

Love and hugs,
