Holly Dress Postcards.
Holly is a brand new shape we have created for summer and this party season, inspired by our love of 50’s Hawaiian dresses, this piece will be your new favourite dress this summer.
FEATURES: Holly is a clever new dress we have made which has versatile straps which can be worn straight with a normal bra, tied at the neck like a halter style or crossed over at the back and buttoned. We have added extra adjustments on the straps so you can button the strap at the length you need, which means it will fit a range of bust sizes and shapes in the bodice. We love the nice wide strap which will cover any size bra strap, and create a lovely neckline. We love Holly for her feminine cut and beautiful below the knee length. We have of course added side pockets to the softly gathered skirt, which makes her super practical to wear all summer long! The defined waist band creates a lovely shape on any figure, and the fitted bodice feels secure and pretty without any fussing. Holly is a lovely strappy shape with a cross over bodice that doesn't leave you feeling bare. The shape is essentially a V-neck which accommodates a larger bust well, but also works on a smaller bust due to the adjustable strap lengths and clever button adjustment. She has perfect coverage at the arm hole where your bra wont be seen and the versatile straps mean you wont be left with an ill-fitting bodice, no matter which way you decide to wear your Holly.
HOW TO WEAR: Holly can be worn four ways due to the convertible straps.
1. Buttoned up in a traditional way with straight straps which will cover any normal bra, this is the shortest button hole setting.
2. Buttoned up with straps crossed over at the back, so the front looks slightly more halter at the neckline.
3. Straps tied at the back of the neck in a bow, in a traditional tied-up halter style and no buttons done up.
4. Straps done in a knot at the back of neck and buttoned up on the last button hole on the strap, this gives a beautiful detail like a cage back which is very reminiscent of a traditional 50's style Hawaiian dress.
This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of sandals, clogs, or even a heel for occasions like a wedding or Christmas party. Holly looks dressy without any effort and we love the feminine feel she gives without being fussy or over the top. Holly is a lovely shape which works well worn with our ballet wraps, a cropped cardy or a little bolero. We love this sweet little shape for those super hot Sydney days and we often use our lovely stretch cotton sateen which has great hold and softens the more you wear it. It is also incredibly cool in the heat, which means this dress might end up your new summer favourite. We will be teaming ours with a plethora of fun accessories such as a metallic belt, fun sandals and a brooch. We also love her lovely longer length, which works so well on a lot of heights, shapes and sizes.
