Allow me to introduce, Alice’s Pig fashion brand…
I am really trying to dress more feminine now, my little brother aka my style hero, told me I need to stop buying boys clothes so I really am trying to mix it up a bit…
I think my brother just wanted the boys clothes I had and was clearly being a hater! However I did secretly agree with him, especially as I dress smarter for work now. I don’t think I’ll ever give up on mens coats and jackets though.
The superstars behind Ethical London fashion brand, Alice’s Pig, dropped me an email asking if I wanted to try one of their dresses. I hadn’t heard of the brand before so I had a look on the site and at first I thought it’s not really my style and I find it difficult to get dresses that actually fit properly. I went back to the site the next day as I had an occasion coming up and I had nothing to wear. I thought if I go up a size hopefully I’ll get a dress that will fit over the boobs properly and not make them look huge. I also like that Alice’s Pig are ethical and they are based in Brixton, London, I think it’s important to support small local businesses.
I sent a list of three options and a few days later I received my first choice, the Caisey’s Calling 1970’s vintage inspired dress. This is not normally the kind of dress I would go for but this year I am all about trying new things and experimenting with my style a bit more.
As soon as I tried this dress on, I loved it! The fit is perfect, the print is cute and the fabric is quite heavy and feels expensive. I like the mesh sleeves because they allow me to move freely, I am not a fan of tight clothes. The Caisey’s Calling dress is also a win for me because I don’t have to wear spanx with it, GOD IS GOOD! This dress hugs my curves and I feel amazing in it. Now I just have to speak to the team at Alice’s Pig about creating the same dress in a few more colours and prints.
I wore this dress to a christening with heels and nice jewels and I added my own belt. I know I will wear it loads over the summer and even in the autumn/ winter months with ankle boots and my leather jacket for a more casual look, it’s a really versatile piece.
Let me know what you think,
