Yours clothing have me pretty captive at the moment, they have opened an actual store close to where I live and I have been enjoying trying on clothes again! I was delighted to see they released a Hell Bunny line just before Christmas last year, and I spent a while stalking and plotting which dress I wanted to buy. I ended up with 2 but am reviewing the Cherry print one here- because I didn't take any photos of the other one! (Skull and Rose print)
To be honest I don't have many occasions to wear a Hell Bunny Dress nowadays except when we go up to Whitby for the Goth Weekend, which sadly we are only doing once this year.
This is not a pure review of this dress as I paired this dress with a corset so the pictures don't depict the dress entirely as is- the dress is a similar shape without the corset though. I refer you to the Yours website for that.
I am also wearing my Hell Bunny petticoat under this dress (sadly sold out in the larger size at Yours, however I bought mine here in a 3XL to 5XL (18-22))
The corset I bought on e-bay as a one off listing however I tracked similar down here (available in plus sizes) this corset is a 44'' which is a bit big as I prefer more of a gap in the lacing (but it did fit and hold me in well) and I paid about 17 quid for it (and it's pretty good quality).
My friends bought me a pinup style cherry hat as a birthday surprise which I was over the moon with they are so clever! (this one is from Miss Needles) My eye makeup is done with the Too Faced chocolate bar pallette (a new firm fave) and my Lips are Maybelline 24 hour superstay in 'Cherry Pie' I kid you not-more herries! My necklace is Whitby Jet bought for me a few years ago by my parents as a special birthday present- I wear it a lot! And the fringe, well that is faked of course!
So back to the dress, this dress fabric has some stretch in it making it comfortable to wear. The back closure is buttons from the waist up which is an unusual touch, I have a broad back so I was a little worried about the buttons gaping a bit (reverse blouse syndrome!) but as I planned to wear it with a corset I didn't worry too much. This dress would be perfect if the arms were a bit longer, for me I prefer if a designer goes to the trouble of designing an interesting back on a dress/top I would like to be able to show it off without being arm conscious and ultimately resorting to a cardigan (I know I shouldn't be but I cant help it!).
I had the best time in this dress, we danced the night away, something I am getting worse at as I get older, nowadays I can't wait to get back in to my PJ's! We saw a mixture of bands, Fuzzbox were amazing- talented all girl band (If you don't remember them (I didn't) look up 'Pink Pink sunshine!' it's an ear worm!). We also saw Wayne Hussey (from the Mission) again a talented musician, technically amazing, but perhaps this was not the right venue for him. He was a bit sedate for the headline band, and he sat down so we coldn't see him!
Anyhow I'm going to wrap it up there. Needless to say I'm still here, still reading blogs and following instagram, I just find I have less to post about nowadays!
