A few months ago, Embody Denim leaked an image of an utterly gorgeous watercolour/floral/ikat fabric on social media. Once I saw it, I couldn't get it out of my head. I watched the progress as it was revealed as a spectacular 70's style maxi dress, the 'Birkin' dress, and fell in love with it. Understandably, when it landed in my post office box, I was beyond excited!
I was worried about the sizing; mostly the sleeves being too snug or the buttons gaping at the bust. I also thought the style may be too long on my 167cm tall frame, but I was pleasantly surprised. No alterations were needed, and the dress fit perfectly over every contour of my figure. A very low heel was enough to bring the hem up off the ground too.
Not only does the Birkin dress fit perfectly, but it feels like butter to wear... no endless adjusting required! It's beautifully constructed from the softest satin, and the colour palette would suit most skin tones. It buttons all the way down the front, so it can be worn with a sexy split, fully closed, or as a lightweight jacket. Just for the record... I took these photos in 30 degree (celsius) heat and didn't sweat or overheat.
I am wearing the size 20. The 18 would probably fit, but the 20 just feels and looks so fab! I'm sticking with it and loving it. The Birkin dress is officially the most beautiful and best fitting dress in my entire wardrobe!
