Dress review: HARPER DRESS (Hobbs)

I’ve recently started a job in finance, a profession where it is tantamount that you dress for the part. Time permitting, I might review several of the outfits I bought, but I definitely had to give this gorgeous peach Hobbs dress a mention.

Hobbs’ sizing is very accurate, so the size 10 fit me nicely. If I were to gripe about anything, it would be that it’s too tight at the bust, but that was also the case with the Missguided and Miss Selfridge dresses I reviewed, so I think it’s fair to say that’s an artefact of my inconveniently ample bosom, rather than a design flaw of Hobbs, who tailor their dresses to the average chest size for every size.

The design is simple but extremely elegant, and the cut is so flattering. It’s form fitting but not overly tight (like something you’d wear to a nightclub), so very office-appropriate, especially the length, which falls below the knee, which means the dress doesn’t look too short when you sit down. And the colour is enjoyably feminine and muted.

I have a lot of pink jewellery (including the dice earrings I paired with it below), which compliments the dress nicely.

A few photos of me enjoying the gorgeous dress:



A mature, understated dream, I feel more ladylike just for owning it.

Post writing is also a fun, if you know after that you can write or else it is complicated to write.
