New Blood

Plus size woman wearing blood red asenath maxi dress from Elvi Clothing and black sandals

I know I’m not the only one who sometimes wants to have 1 item of clothing that is comfortable, covers everything and has some flare. It may be fair to say I think I found it! Elvi, one of my favourite brands continues to push edgy, chic and stylish items out there. Originally items were only available for us plus chicks but now the size range has expanded downwards. Our smaller sisters are able to enjoy the offerings too and I have to say, it makes a difference to have clothes standard size women were after!

When they released this Asenath blood red maxi dress I really wanted to try it. Red is a colour I enjoy wearing, I think it compliments my skin tone. The oversized feel of this dress and the huge flared sleeves is what first caught my eye. Seeing such a simple garment have so much character was refreshing. I love the light and airy fabric. To say this dress is breathable would be an understatement, it’s really cool and easy to wear. The diamond cut outs on the sleeves bring in a slight detail that sets off the dress. Light neck and waist ties allow for a more secured and structured fit also.

I did get a pleasant surprise with this dress, considering how feather-light the fabric is I thought it would be slightly see-through. Ladies you’ll be pleased to know you can wear this one with confidence and modesty. Not having to plan an outfit is always a comfort to a woman on the go. When I put this look together I thought I have 2 colours to work with red and black. As my hair is black I opted to wear my black lace hair scarf and a pair of slinky sandals.

Having items that have just enough sass so that you don’t need to bring anything extra are everything! Red lipstick and a smile applied to my face and I couldn’t really go wrong. Elvi have a whole host of gorgeous items at the moment and some fab ones in their sale (including this dress) be sure to check them out and grab yourself something nice!
