The perfect holiday dress.

Jingle bells, jingle bells… Christmas is on the way!!!

I absolutely love the holidays, such a magical time.

When I think about Christmas, I think of a tree filled with lights, stockings hanging from the chimney, warm and cozy homes and hot coco. But most of all, I think about spending time with friends, family and loved ones and all the Christmas parties I have to attend.
So… obviously I need a new dress!

I was thinking about going for something classic this Christmas, maybe a retro styled dress.
Some of my go to stores for plus size retro clothing are: Succubus, Lady V London, Scarlette & Jo, Lindy Bop… They all offer gorgeous dresses, some up to a European size 58 (size 32 UK).

This time I found the dress at succubus. My eye fell on this wine Lindy Bop dress and I thought: this is it! I love the colour and the floral jacquard relief print on the fabric is beautiful. The shape of the dress is amazing, nicely tucked in around the waist with a princess flare skirt. I added a petticoat to make the skirt really pop. The V-neck cut on the back of the dress is absolutely divine. Just the type of dress I was looking for!

Personally I think no Christmas can go without a little glam. So, I added some sparkle with these gold glitter shoes from New Look Fashion.
I feel just like Cinderella with her glass slippers!

I found this dress at succubus for 49.95 euros. It’s available in wine, blue and black. They go up to a 6XL, a European size 52 (size 26 UK). The delivery to Belgium is free and can take up to 7 days, find it here.
I ordered a 3XL; according to their size guide this is a European size 46 (size 20 UK). This fitted me perfectly. I would say Succubus is true to size. If you are not sure about the size, I suggest you take your measurements and go with that. Find their size guide here.
Here are some alternative retro styled dresses I loved as well:

  • Red Lindy Bop Grace 50’s swing dress. Available at Succubus for 54.95 euros, find it here.

Burgundy banned supersoft lifeform petticoat, 23 inch.

Succubus offers the burgundy petticoat for 49.95 euros, in 2 different length sizes: 20 inch and 23 inch (51cm and 58cm). The petticoats go up to a size XL/XXL, 39 inch (98cm) measured in the waist. I ordered a XL/XXL and this fitted me well. I love how petticoats give these dresses extra flare and a little more swing.

Wide Fit Gold Glitter Block Heel Court Shoes.

I just love these shoes, I found them at New Look for 33 euros. I ordered these wide fit heels in a size 7 and they fitted me perfectly. Find their size guide here.
The heel is 4 inches (10.5 cm) high, but because it’s a block heel they are very comfortable.
