Last week I wrote an introductory post about Celuu, a British brand that provides grown up, sophisticated clothing for women who really don’t want to dress as teenagers. (You can read that post here) I promised in that post that I would soon be reviewing one of their pieces myself, and here it is. The dress I chose was the Rosie Lace Skater Dress, a beautiful piece that I think would be perfect for a late Spring/early Summer wedding. This is a dress that makes me feel graceful and elegant, and that is something I don’t say that often.
This is a skater style dress but with a difference. Skater styles are often short and flirty, but as you can see, this is actually more midi length on me (I’m 5ft7inches). The fabric is heavier than you might expect, giving it shape, and the dress is fully lined, which makes it a great choice if you need something more demure and formal, e.g. a church wedding or a Christening.
Keeping with the demure theme, the dress has a v neckline, but doesn’t reveal any cleavage, and the short sleeves are not tight fitting, making this dress comfortable as well as beautiful. The blue shade is deep and vibrant, making it perfect to team with an equally vibrant primary shade like the red I have chosen, or a sunshine yellow.
The lining is a very soft grey, which contrasts well against the blue of the dress, and the addition of knitted jersey for the lining means that the dress is comfortable and very forgiving if you are planning on having a big meal. The dress is also true to size, I actually sized up and so the dress is slightly big, this is generously cut so you can keep to your size.
