I received the lovely dress I'm wearing in the pictures below as a gift from Love ur Look (http://www.loveurlook.co.uk/). I had never gotten anything from this shop before.
The print on the dress is totally adorable, it has ice cream, soda, drive-in signs, donuts, etc. on it. As I've said many times before, I'm a sucker for shirt dresses, so that is another reason I love this dress. I also love the pink background color. Believe it or not, I have barely any dresses with a pink background color, and pink is one of my very favorite colors! I also like the yellow piping on the bottom of the dress, it's a cute touch.
As far as sizing goes, definitely check out the size chart, and make sure the size you order will fit your bust. I had been thinking of getting a size smaller, but Ronke (the very sweet owner) sent me a size up, according to my measurements, to make sure the bust would fit me. The waist is quite big on me, but the bust just fits. Wearing a belt hides the fact that the waist is big on me. This dress comes with its own cute matching fabric belt, but I wanted to style it with this white belt. Especially when there's a buttons over the bust, you want to make sure you get the right size for your bust!
Besides the fact that Love ur Look makes adorable, fun, retro-style dresses, I also love that they are an ethical company. You can check out information about this on their website, under the "about love ur look" section. They create their clothing in India and the UK, and with working standards such as no discrimination, and humane working hours. Love ur Look also donates profits to an animal hospital in India, which makes me happy to hear, as I LOVE animals! The brand is based in the UK, but ships internationally.
I suggest you check out this company, if you haven't yet. Here's a link to the dress I'm wearing below: http://www.loveurlook.co.uk/pink-candy-print-dress/, and this print also comes in another dress stye: http://www.loveurlook.co.uk/pink-candy-collar-dress/. There's plenty of cute style to choose from!
