OOTD: Wrapped Up in PinkClove

January 30, 2014

I’ve been seeing some of my UK blogger friends tweeting about a new-ish brand called Pink Clove, and after seeing Leah in their wrap dress, I decided to try out their wrap dress style too. This wrap dress was under $15! You can barely buy anything “plus size” for that price these days, so I was super excited. I wore it to work today with leggings and boots, which have become a bit of a staple in the last few weeks. I definitely recommend wearing it with leggings, as the tulip “wrap” aspect of the skirt has a habit of opening pretty high when you are sitting. Most wraps go all the way to the side, this does not, so keep that in mind.

The skirt of the dress fit me perfectly, but the top part was slightly big. I remedied this with a metallic silver belt. Like I’ve said in previous posts, work attire demands simple jewelry for me or I will mess with it all day. I went with triangular stone with blue accents earrings, which unfortunately didn’t photograph well and is no longer available at F21. ugh! Regardless, I’m loving wearing one side of my hair behind my ear with a great earring.

Overall, my first experience with Pink Clove was really positive. The quality of the dress was much better than I expected, and I know that I will get a lot of wear out of it. I also picked up this dress which is $10 and really cute on! This brand is definitely worth a try. By the way, I used the US to UK size conversion chart that they have under their “size guide”, and Β I would say it is accurate. Even though the top of this dress was a little big, sizing down one would have made the dress too snug. Pink Clove goes up to a UK 32, which is the equivalent of a roomy US 28.

    The blue is lovely on you! The belt adds a lovely touch as well. Leggings are such a good idea with this dress. πŸ™‚

    Hi, I’ve been a regular on your blog for a while but this is the first time I’ve commented. That dress is gorgeous! How is shipping to the US with pink clove? I’ve been thinking about ordering from them for a while.

      It came really fast through USPS. You do have to sign for the package though. I missed it at first and had to pick up from the post office.

    Gorgeous! I love the blue on you! I’ve bought a top and tulip skirt from them and was really impressed, great pricing and great sipping to Australia. Now I kinda want to go buy the dress you’re wearing!

      Thanks Natalie! I ended up placing another order for some more dresses in this shape. Too good to pass up. And I agree about the shipping. Makes me wonder why for some businesses it takes forever to get here.

      Natalie , may I ask how much shipping to Australia was ?
      I’m on the Gold Coast
      A lot of the American companies postage is like a mortgage payment ( jokes)

        Hey Gia! Shipping was $16.45. I ended up getting the top, skirt, plus shipping for $50.76au. Though it also depends on what the currency conversion is at the time!

    I absolutely love it and I ADORE your blog. You have inspired me to start blogging and following my passion. Silly of me to think that because I am on the larger end of plus size that no one would be interested in reading my fashion post. You have lit a fire in and I thank you for sharing your life with us. Please check out my blog. I am just getting started πŸ™‚ http://www.pleaseexcusemyderriere.wordpress.com

    I never heard of Pink Clove till now. I see that the wrap is made from rayon (viscose). Is it a bit warm? I love the color. I am thinking about getting their Blue Waterfall Cardigan (which is also cut from rayon).

    • January 31, 2014 8:35 pm

      I didn’t find it warm. I taught in it, and I typically get warm when teaching, but I didn’t notice it in this.

        So I loved everything I ordered, I should have ordered the smaller size in the dresses but still wearable and easily altered.
        Fantastic, I will be ordering again and have put a few girls onto them as well….
