Review – Rosie Lace Skater Dress from Celuu

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.

Celuu are still running their competition to win a new wardrobe from £1000. You can enter by clicking on the link below.

Introducing Celuu Clothing and a very special competition

Born from 50 years’ experience of British design, we are a womenswear
brand with a fresh approach to style. Our philosophy is simple – to
design elegant and contemporary pieces that fit consistently, and equally
well, from sizes 12-22.

We take inspiration from trends, translating them into relaxed shapes
that are comfortable to wear and luxurious to the touch. Each garment
is thoughtfully curated from the initial design to the very last stitch.

It was once the story that when you reached the age of 35+, your options when it came to clothing became severely limited. The places to get good quality clothing, dresses with sleeves, skirts that weren’t pelmet length and basically looks that were grown up without being ageing were few and far between. Women were more youthful than ever, but that didn’t mean we wanted to dress like our daughters, or, for that matter, like our mother’s.

Thankfully today there are brands that totally understand that, and one of the the most exciting brands is Celuu, which offers British design in sizes 12-22. Celuu is British design at its best, with classic looks that are fashion forward enough to look stylish without looking desperate, ensuring the wearer will turn heads for all the right reasons. With a stunning range of dresses, and separates that cover a gamut of looks from smart to casual, Celuu is a style destination that can help you find the right outfit for any occasion.

There will be a detailed review of my latest dress from Celuu coming up later this week, but, in the meantime, I have chosen some of my favourite pieces from the current collection so you can see just what I’m talking about. Plus. at the bottom of this post there are details on a great competition that Celuu are currently running that is offering you the chance to win a new wardrobe from the brand worth £1000.
