F&F True Floral Panelled Scuba Dress and Competition Time!

March 15th, 2014

My second review from the new F&F True range, following that winning pair of jeans (check out that review here), is back on more familiar ground. Yes folks, I am reviewing a dress. In this case it is a dress that catches the eye with its bright and beautiful print and colours. This dress is the Floral Panelled Scuba Dress.

I really liked this dress initially due to the pattern. I love florals in Spring, and this was a beautifully vibrant colour combination, the sort I enjoy wearing – I have no fear of bright colours. I also love Philip Armstrong scuba style dresses. I had one from a previous collection from F&F Clothing, and it quickly became a wardrobe favourite, so I was really looking forward to seeing how well this dress delivered on its promise.

The colours are just as vivid and vibrant as I hoped they would be, whilst the side panel gives this an illusion dress finish. I was worried that the length might be too short on me (I’m 5ft7), but it was a really nice length, finishing just above the knee. I am also a fan of the 3/4 sleeves, hiding a part of the arm that most women, Michelle Obama aside, like to cover up if possible.

DSCN6291[1]The Scuba material actually helps define and cinch your body shape, I actually felt slimmer in this dress (this is size 18 – I found this the perfect size for me). This is a perfect occasion dress – work – just add a blazer, evening out – High heels. It doesn’t really need much in the way of accessories as the print really stands out and doesn’t require further embellishment. I wore this dress to a beauty event at Harvey Nichols on Wednesday night and it got a lot of compliments – which is just what you like when wearing a new dress.

Here are a few more of the pieces I love.

    I’d love to enter the competition and really like the blue skater dress featured above as I’ve been looking in one in that colour for ages! Xxx

    I like the pink mac. Love the colour. I like a bit of colour for spring. Also like this


    I like a tankini. Easy to roll up when on the beach but can be pulled down when in the pool with the kids to avoid any over exposure when kids clinging from you.

  6. Porcelina says:

    What a fabulous dress on you, it looks great! It is most flattering.

    I love a competition, so my pick would be another dress, the Julia Panel Illusion dress, which I believe you would also rock! x

  8. I love the style of the dress and it fits you to a “t” – great review and thanks for sharing at the #WWDParty.

  9. Shelley Jessup says:

    I utterly love that dress & it looks amazing on you too. I love colour put sometimes get a little scared with a whole pattern of colours as I am a size 22 & I think I may just look like a colourful blob 🙁 maybe it’s just my lack of self happiness at my weight.

    I’ve spotted many items I would very pleased if they could make their way into my wardrobe but my favourite has to be the Edge to Edge Plus size jacket it would be a fabulous piece that would work with all outfits & a steal at just £25!

  11. Sian says:

    This dress looks absolutely stunning on you! The print is gorgeous!! I went into Tesco the other day for a mooch around the clothing and I was so impressed! I didn’t have any money on me at the time but it’s definitely where I’m going to go when I have money. Great prices! They had some beautiful spring jumpers!

    I think my favourite piece from the collection is the dress you’ve chosen here. It really does look fantastic on you!!

    Lots of love, Sian xxx
