A couple of weeks ago, the lovely Beth at reached out to me to see if I’d like to review an item. I had definitely heard and seen the brand before, but had never bought from them because I thought they only went to a UK26 (US22). I was very wrong! When I went to the website, I saw many items up to a UK30/32 (US 26/28), so I agreed right away and they sent over a piece for me to try.

Looking at their site, I loved a lot of the items they carried. Lovedrobe incorporates different fabrics, patterns, colors, and details into their styles that make clothing items special. If I were to go on a spending spree, this is what I’d pick up:

lovedrobeLeft to Right, top line then bottom line: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

For the review, I asked for a dress that was definitely outside of my comfort zone. It’s shorter and sassier than I usually go for, but I love clothing that allows me to express different aspects of myself or try new things.


I received the Koko Coral and Stone Geometric Pattern Dress in a UK 30/32. This dress is in a non-stretchy material, and I found the sleeves slightly tight. This isn’t unexpected, as I have bigger arms compared to my top/size, but it’s something to be aware of if you also are shaped that way. I loved the houndstooth pattern in coral. I often associate houndstooth with fall and winter, and this piece with the coloring is a perfect summer addition and can carry through to the fall. The top is quite fitted through the bust and waist, which I love. This part fit perfectly and I had plenty of room in the back and bust to move around.


The length is shorter than I usually go for. If I were to bend over, it’s possible that I’d show things that I’d rather not show. Granted, I have a big behind, so someone smaller there would not have the same issue. I recommend leggings/shorts, opaque tights if you also find it a bit short. I added a orangish-coralish belt and some casual bracelets for a simple, no-fuss summer look.


If the pattern is a little much for you, then a cardigan or jacket would be a perfect addition. I basically only wear jean jackets in the summer because it’s so easy to add to almost every look, so I wanted to show you that as well. I tried the dress with a jean vest, and that’s a cute look too. There’s plenty of room to play around with styling this piece.

*The dress shown was gifted to me by The opinions expressed are my own.


  1. Right now I’m looking at the Navy Patterned Lace Sleeveless Dress – a classic that can be dressed up or down, I can already think of half a dozen things to wear with it!

  2. Lovedrobe mint satin tie polka dot dress is my pick!!!! I’m currently obsessed with both mint green and polka dots!! The style is def classy <3

  3. I adore a maxi dress in the summer, and the lovedrobe coral tie dye effect lace print maxi dress is just beautiful..

  4. The Beige Multi Floral Print Lace Back Dress is absolutely adorable! That one would definitely be my pick.

  5. You look really nice in this dress!!!!!!
    I would pick the NAVY MULTI DOTTED MESH SWING DRESS, in any color actually 🙂

  6. I love the orange Grecian dress… It’s fabulous. There are SO many good choices! I have never heard of this brand before, am definitely adding some dresses to my wish list!

  7. That dress is adorable on you. I’d love to see it with tights. Speaking of which, besides We Love Color, have you ever found any plus size tights that go up to size 28 that you’d recommend?

    As for the contest, I’d love to try on that dress you’re wearing. And while it’s not quite a dress, it’s in the dress section, so I’d also try that stripped tie detail tunic. I could pair that with jeans for a nice casual outfit for work.

  8. I love the Lovedrobe hot pink beaded grecian maxi dress. It would be perfect for both a wedding and cruise I’m going on this fall.

  9. I’m entering here and I’ve entered on twitter too (@Pumba237).
    I think I would choose the Red lace back chiffon dress that you put in your picks too.

  10. I love that dress on you Rebecca! It is so classy, love it!

    I would totally wear this to my niece in laws wedding… it is so classy. Love this website. I might order myself some things!

  11. I’d pick the coral crochet collar skater dress. I, like you, have a love affair with coral. Just as I love the dress that was gifted to you I would love to have the skater dress. It looks good on almost any skin tone and skater dresses are so flattering. :-). I just adore that dress.

  12. Ooh I am looking at the Multi Colour and Width Sailor Stripe Dress. That cotton dress would be awesome for summer with some black leggings under it 😀 And a little out of my comfort zone, which is kinda cool.

  13. I like the coral on you. Especially love the taupe colored shoes with the dress. Dark shoes really wouldn’t have gone with it. It would have made the dress too severe.

  14. The Dress you’re wearing looks stunning! I’m always conflicted with the houndstooth print, but the color is perfect on you.
    I liked on Facebook! My FB name is Markita Stewart. I also tweeted! My twitter name is @_kitaboo.
    The dress I would pick if I were to win is the Lovedrobe Gem Detail Contrast Lace Dress. I like the black lace in it, and the pop of color that comes from the belt.

  15. So many great options to choose from. I would definitely do the Lovedrobe Baby Pink Trim and Lapel Dress….I just love the simplicity of the dress and how I could find any occasion to wear it.

  16. I would choose the Koko Coral and Stone dress you are wearing. After researching the dresses, I would feel most comfortable in this one because a sleeve is a must for me.

  17. I love the Koko Coral Geometric dress! Although, I’d be happy with any of them lol

  18. I’d totally go with the Lovedrobe Multi Colour Geometric Panel Bodycon Dress! It’s completely out of my comfort zone seeing as how it’s a bodycon, but it’s sexy and i think i’d feel sexy wearing it!
