Beautifully dressed by Navabi

A few weeks ago I had a lovely email from Michelle at a wonderful company called Navabi.

Now if you haven’t seen or heard of them before, they are a premium plus size company that not only produces their own range, but sells many other premium ranges including Manon Baptiste, Gina Baconi,  Maria Rinaldi , Ashley Graham and many, many more.

You can find everything on the site from evening dresses to shoes, underwear to Faux fur coats, Swimwear to jumpsuits.

The site also has some of the well known brands we PS ladies love, like Lovedrobe, Chi-Chi London, Want that trend and Junarose. In fact there is something there for every style and budget.

Michelle very kindly asked if I would like to try an article from either The Navabi Collection or the Manon Baptiste range. Well it was a tough decision, let me tell you!

Floral Dress £194.99

I had a good look at the two ranges and penciled in some of the favourite pieces and tried to think of how and where I would wear them.

I also wanted to them to be true to my sense of style, whilst bringing something new to it. I ended up choosing three options that I was happy to give a go. The reason I picked three was to give Navabi a chance to check on availability, previous reviews and budget. I then left the final decision up to Michelle.

Embroidered Tulle Dress £194.99

A few short days later and a parcel arrived on my doorstep. I was really eager to see what had been sent, and also where to wear it.

Thank you Postie!

When I opened the parcel I was over the moon that it contained my favourite piece, the Embroidered Tulle Dress. And Oh what a dress it was.

Love the inside of the box

The sheer weight and quality of the dress was amazing.

Perfectly wrapped up

The fact that the dress is heavily beaded means it isn’t a lightweight item of clothing, however even the quality of the fabric make it a substantial dress. It is quite simply, luxurious.

Beautifully Blush

Now given that the dress is a very pale blush pink, I wasn’t too sure just how I was going to style it up. My first thoughts were Maroon or Navy. I then edged towards a Dove Grey.

I popped onto Everything £5 to see what shoes they had. I was pretty impressed with the selection, and ended up buying three pairs.

In the end I decided to go with grey and going off on a bit of a tangent, a floral pair of shoes to show you just how versatile this dress is.

Floral Court Heels

I have to admit. The floral and the patent heels went with the dress perfectly. The suedette ones just looked awful with it, hence why you won’t see them in this review!

Full length fantasticalness

Now although this dress is perhaps a little more expensive than what I would normally look at paying, I have to say the sheer quality of the fit, design and fabric make it worth every penny.

Simple and Beautiful

The beading is just beautiful. The fit is true to size and features a full zip with a hook and eye closure. The dress actually has 4 internal linings including one with a little netting to give it some fullness, so there is no need to add a petticoat.

Pink and Grey

The sleeves are little cap sleeves with a curve that cover the top of the arms, but make a nice little feature given the design.

Floral Footwear

I have to admit I was so comfortable in this dress. I felt it flattered my figure due to the perfect fit and the length hit me half way down my calf which covers my knobbly knees!

Does my bum look big in this?

I also added my trusty vintage hat to the shoot in the garden as it was a perfect match and I can certainly see me wearing this to a wedding or a fancy function.

Perfect Vintage Accompaniments

I tried to get a true depiction of the prettiness of this dress but the photo’s literally do not do it justice!

Posing like a professional

I know it will get a lot of wear too, as it is just so versatile as I have shown above.

Loving this dress so much

This dress is the perfect dress to wear as a summer wedding guest, and that is exactly what I am going to do with it. I just need to decide on my final  contrasting colour.
