Finding a great black dress is something that will never bore me, and guys I definitely found one this season. I got it from Lady Africa, one of my favorite stores here in The Hague. The stores slogan is “made by loving hands, worn by exceptional people”. You’ve got to love that philosophy. This cute dress is from the South African brand Isabel de Villiers Clothing. What I know from Lady Africa is that they have great heart in dressing all kinds a ladies (and gents) of all shapes and sizes, etnicities and ages. And this brand fits right in their way of thinking. The sizes range from a 32-48. A positive body message is their focus, but not only looking at the size of a women’s waist, designing locally and ethically with love to make all women feel beautiful.
I feel really comfortable in this dress, even though it’s a real body hugger. The fabric is thick and so for me it is perfect for this fall and winter. While shooting the weather was just perfect so I’m wearing it with some sneakers. But I would also pair this dress with some good thights and chunky boots.
