Dreams do come true – I got free chocolate! I have such a sweet tooth, so I was excited to be included in a new campaign between Lindy Bop and Mars. It includes chocolate and a limited Lindy Bop Lily Dress!
This is my best Forrest Gump impression. I’m going to go out on a whim and say I’m just a tad more glamorous, however! I certainly have more Resting Bitch Face than Forrest, but also more glamour. Right?
So in collaboration with Mars Chocolates, Lindy Bop have given one of their popular styles a special makeover. In a red and off-white polkadot, the Lily dress matches the iconic look of Maltesers chocolate packaging. And when you order this dress, you can receive a box of Maltesers Luxury chocolates – and the dress’ belt matches the shimmery box!
As with most of my Lindy Bop dresses I’ve reviewed, I took the Lily in my usual size, 22. And I’ll say this has been the best fit I’ve gotten from a LB dress so far!
Unlike other styles I have, this isn’t a cotton blend – it’s actually 97% Polyester. Now I know what you think, and I thought it too – it’s pretty high in polyester. But I’d go out on a whim and say that actually it works! The finish is a matte sheen, that adds a touch of luxury, and because of the 3% elastane you’ve got a good amount of stretch in there.
It’s pretty true to size for once, and unless you have a much larger bust I’d go for your usual in this version of the Lily. It’s also better for more average torso lengths than mine!
Honestly, the only thing that lets this dress down is that there’s no pockets. Other than that one specific thing I love in my dresses, it’s really great! So comfortable and classy – the perfect combination!
As I mentioned before, I have a real sweet tooth, so I couldn’t help but eat a few whilst shooting, although I will say I got some strange looks photographing myself eating!
It’s such a lovely little dress to add to your wardrobe, and £35 for a dress and free chocolate is a great deal! Head over to Lindy Bop’s site to grab this little polkadot wonder in sizes 8-26 today!
