The Classy Wardrobe

Regular readers will know that I’ve been given the enviable task of reviewing not just one, buy viagra but two beautiful items from the work wear range at The Classy Wardrobe. Last week it was all about the Adele, which lots of you told us you love. This week the Oadira has had an outing or two and I just know there is going to be a lot of love for this one too.

I’m not a fashionista by any stretch of the imagination but you’d have to be living on Pluto to not yet have cottoned onto the latest trend for the oh-so-delightful Peplum. Kate Middleton wowed earlier this Spring when she wore one and Michelle Williams showed the peplum can be high glamour on the red carpet too.

For those not in the know, a peplum is an additional piece of fabric on a top or a dress, similar to a kick flare ‘skirt’.  Some say a tutu, but that’s probably a step too far for even the budding ballerina inside me. Hugely flattering, the peplum nips you in at the waist, and then skims out over the hips, creating a slightly exaggerated hourglass shape.

The Oadira dress from the Classy Wardrobe is sleeveless with a graduated peplum, which sits slightly lower at the back, over a pencil skirt which ensures that the dress goes in and out in all the right places.  As if the shape isn’t appealing enough, this dress has the gorgeous addition of a teal (detachable) flower which transforms an already lovely dress into a simply stunning one.

The dress is a deeper grey in colour than the earlier Adele I reviewed, more on the charcoal spectrum than the lighter grey and the contrast of the teal flower works brilliantly.  Teal is without doubt my colour of the moment too, so the dress also matches my lounge perfectly!

I’ve been surprisingly delighted with the comfort and ease of wear of the Oadira, as it’s definitely a more structured dress than others I have, and screams glam before it screams comfort. Yet, it is. The dress is of super quality once again, and feels fantastic to wear.

This dress is one for bigger occasions at work, not to be wasted on a day when you have no reason to step away from your desk – this one is all about the look! It’s a perfect desk to dinner dress too, and if you feel the look needs further pushing up the glam stakes, it can be changed quickly and simply with the addition of a thin contrasting belt and strappy sandals.

Being  budding artist and equally keen lover of a pretty dress, Little Princess Pink (aged 5, with the attitude of a 15 year old) took it upon herself to draw me in the dress as she saw me.

So, not just reserved for the catwalk, the Oadira proves that the peplum can be a striking addition to any wardrobe, and you don’t have to be a skinny malinky to wear one, as this interpretative drawing shows!

The Classy Wardrobe

Being a busy mum I have a wardrobe that consists of baggy combats, generic cialis skinny jeans, physician leggings  and tees with dubious stains on, most likely tomato ketchup, yoghurt or snot. Unfortunately / thankfully these aren’t appropriate office attire and on my working days I need to up the ante a little. Working in a professional corporate organisation means smart office wear is essential, and I relish the opportunity to wear heels and register somewhere highish on the scale of ‘respectable looking lady.’

My work wardrobe like many of my colleagues consists mainly of black and grey and I do favour a smart dress (less items to iron than if I went down the blouse and skirt route, and very flattering on the old mummy tummy that comes with the territory of having kids and never setting foot in a gym.)

I was delighted to be sent two gorgeous dresses from the team at The Classy Wardrobe to try out for size, and both have been welcome additions to the work wardrobe.

When the postman delivered the white boxed package containing the dresses, I was in the midst of preparing kids lunch (eggs three ways ala Masterchef – poached, mashed-up in a cup and French toast) and was therefore reluctant to prise open the package until all eggy whiffs were gone.

Upon opening, I felt like an excited child on the morning of their birthday. The dresses were each protected in shiny white tissue wrapping, sealed gently. Enclosed in the box also was a handy Classy Wardrobe bag.

 

The first dress I tried was the ‘Adele‘. In keeping with the shades of grey in my current wardrobe, this dress is a good choice for the warmer months, the light grey colour makes it a better option on a summers day. This dress has a bright colour pop injection with some teal / turquoise piping around the waist, which is both flattering to the shape and a lovely feature breaking up the grey.

The dress has cap sleeves, with ruched stitching and they sit perfectly on the shoulders, not too high to feel sleeveless (and reveal bingo wings if like me you have them), but nowhere near a full sleeve, making it perfect for days when the sun shines, but equally workable with a cute cardi or smart jacket over (matching jacket available.)

The quality of the fabric is excellent, thick without being heavy, and it’s fully lined from top to bottom.  The Adele is an easy to wear dress, comfortable, definitely office practical and professional and very smart too. I was almost disappointed that the next working day was a bank holiday and I’d need to wait an extra day before I could wear it!

The true test for me was the breakfast sitting with the little ones then the school and nursery run which involves no less than six ‘ins and outs’ of the car. Breakfast brought the inevitable onslaught of yoghurty fingers, sticky jam toast crumbs and milky moustaches wiped on mum. Reminding myself for the 100th time that I should feed the crew THEN dress myself I set about with the kitchen roll to wipe up the breakfast I was wearing. The dress cleaned up easily enough, and it’s washing machine friendly too which is also a win.

The Adele dress passed the car hokey cokey of the school run (in, out, in, out, shake it all about) with no crushing or creasing to speak of. My smart new dress drew many a compliment from colleagues, and Super Daddy noticed straight away when getting in from work that my dress was new*.

‘Nice.’ he grunted.

This is high praise.

The Adele dress ticked the quality, ease of wear, practicality and smart / professional boxes, and when compared with other designer tailored workwear brands, it’s competitively priced for excellent tailoring and quality.  I’ll wear this dress on a weekly basis to the office (mixing up the accessorising of course!) and the initial test run suggests this will be a hard wearing, hard working dress.  All round it’s a super dress and when I can I’ll definitely invest in a few key pieces.

I’ll be testing out the stunning and very ‘of the moment’ peplum Oadira dress this week. Pop back to find out how I get on.

*on reflection he was probably wondering when on earth I’d bought this one!
