Frilling Fashion With Vanity And Me

Laurie shows us why frills need to be part of your wardrobe... read more

Frills and ruffles seem to be having a bit of a moment so of course, we have made sure to include them in our SS17 fashion collections. The lovely Laurie from Vanity And Me is also a huge frill and ruffle fan so was the perfect person to model our gorgeous new Floral Print Ruffled Maxi Dress

Hi Everyone!

I’m sharing with you today this gorgeous dress from Laura Ashley.

Famous for their romantic and feminine prints, I have long been a fan.

My first bridesmaid dress that I wore at the age of 16 (yes, I had to wait that long!) was actually made from Laura Ashley fabric and I remember it like it was yesterday!

ruffle4 I’ve taken a stroll over to my nearby park to show this dress off and have come armed with sunglasses, umbrella and a hat. That is how unpredictable our UK weather is at the moment! On arrival, it was blowing a gale, so on went the hat.

ruffle2 I loved how the wind showed off how floaty the dress is. But I could barely keep the hat on my head! This Floral Print Ruffled Maxi Dress  is great! In fact, there are lots of lovely dresses available.

I love the frilled hem at the bottom of the dress. It also has an elasticated waist for comfort and a self-tie belt.

ruffle7 Frilled tie cuffs are a lovely detail added to the dress. The material is very very lightweight and has a Nude coloured lining.

It’s that windy that my sunglasses get blown off my head! Then it starts raining! Sun, wind and rain! Typical! Head for cover!

ruffle6 Feeling like a Charlie’s Angels diva here! What do you think of the dress? I was watching a late seventies sitcom the other day thinking, “I could wear that now and be on trend” I just love how romantic this dress is!

ruffle3 Shaded by a huge tree, no sunglasses, no hat and no umbrella. Just this bargain of a dress. I nearly chose this one I love the colour.

There are some beautiful designs on the site so do take a look. I like the frilled detailing on the shoulder. This runs along the back of the dress also.

ruffle5 There’s also a tie front on the dress. I left it loose and flowing, but it could be tied into a bow. I think this dress will be amazing later in the year with boots and a chunky knit cardigan too.

rufflehero Oh look! One photo with sunglasses and no rain or wind! Just sun!

Have a great week everyone!
