*Fashion Union Geometric Print Dress

Wednesday, November 13, 2013
I entered the Fashion Union campaign on Etail PR which is a free site that bloggers can join and you can enter campaigns where you may be sent items to review - however my opinions are my own. I entered the Fashion Union campaign which is still running and there were a lot of items to choose from for this campaign. For more information on etail pr, click here
I picked the Geometric Print Long Sleeve Mini Dress (£30) in the UK size 8 which is a great size for me. I heard of and bought from Fashion Union before I signed up to Etail PR and I bought a couple of jumpers in the sale. I find their clothing to be true to size, from my experience. The dress is described as mini but as I am just under 5ft it is longer and it is a couple of inches above my knee which is a really nice length for me, in my opinion. 

I love the print of the dress, is is monochrome and I just adore the print. The material that the dress is made of is really thick which would be great for the colder months but I find that it makes the dress quite rigid, this would probably not be the case after it has been washed though. The length and size overall are great but the arms and shoulders of the dress look quite boxy on my petite frame so I don't think it looks very flattering on me!

Overall, a good quality dress for the colder months with a classic, easy to wear print. However on me the dress looks a bit too boxy, structured and it would probably suit someone taller to be honest!

Have you bought anything from Fashion Union? x

  3. Love the dress!! I know it's usually difficult for petite girls to find clothes that fit, but sometimes it totally works in your favor because mini skirt are a much better length for you guys for everyday wear! I'm around 5'5 so the skirts/dresses end up being so short and impractical on me :( Great pick though!

  7. I think you should add a belt to cinch you in. Perhaps that would offset the boxy shoulders/arms. I love fashion union but since I'm the u.s. it's super expensive to ship.

  8. Wow, gorgeous dress! :) A waist belt may help if you're not sure on the boxy feel maybe :)
