Considering I’ve mentioned I don’t often buy red dresses, I’m wearing a lot of red dresses recently! As soon as I received this Voodoo Vixen Curve Connie Dress, it was love! I’ve already worn it so many times, it’s hard to get it off my body!
Since we’re at the start of autumn here, I’m finding it difficult to work out how to alter my wardrobe for the change in weather. Turns out this dress is one of those great multi-season dresses due to a neutral print and medium-weight fabric. The little cap sleeves would make it a great spring/summer dress, but equally looks wonderful with a cardigan and tights for autumn/winter.
I took a 2XL in this dress, and for the most part the fit is perfect. The fabric is a medium-weight cotton elastane which means its got stretch for a comfortable fit.
The bust of this dress is something special, I will say. It was the main feature that really drew me into the dress, because I love the shape it creates. Saying that, it’s a touch on the revealing side, though! Although the dress fits me well, I’d definitely recommend this for a bigger bust if you don’t want your bra poking out!
I, on the other hand, kinda love the bra element! Adds a little saucy to it, don’t you think? Oh I wish they did this in plain black!
One of the other aspects that really drew me into this dress in particular was the pockets. I make nothing less than a spectacle of how much I love pockets in dresses! These ones are particularly nice patch pockets with black piping detail and pleats – which means they can hold quite a bit!
You can also see the print much better in this photo. I won’t say I’m really into it, as a non-glasses-wearer it seems somewhat nonsensical. That and it’s a bit of an odd subject matter for a dress print. It doesn’t take anything away from the dress overall, though!
On the whole, I adore this dress SO much. I didn’t expect to wear it quite as much as I already do. Voodoo Vixen will actually be expanding and rebranding their Curve range for SS18, and personally I can’t wait to see what they bring out! They’ll be adjusting sizing too, so fingers crossed they add more than a 4XL.
