The moment I saw the Delia dress from Laura Byrnes black label, I knew this dress would be divine on and it absolutely did not disappoint.
In my experience lace sleeves can be hard to wear, especially if you have any meat or muscle on your arms. I relieved a sign of joy, when I noticed the lace sleeves on the Delia dress were stretchy! This was even more important when I had to size down from a medium to a small- usually in this case the sleeves simply would not fit and I was slightly resistant that despite the stretch it still would not fit…but to my excitement, the small fit and it fit beautifully.
The Delia is simply stunning. It has all the elements to make it your new favorite little black dress. The rouching on the sides make this bengaline wiggle dress highly flattering, hiding or camouflaging any trouble spots. The Delia also has the coveted sweet heart neckline, which gives this saucy number a touch of sweetness. This dress also has the slightest hint of a princess sleeve, further adding to its elegance.
The fun continues onto the backside, with a keyhole on the upper back and a beautiful kick pleat which is something Pinup Girl is coming known for – no need for a simple slit when you can really punch up a wiggle with gorgeous pleats. The kick pleat is a beautiful selling point when I shown gals these dresses – we have, for some silly reason, come to expect a simple, boring slit, but why should we accept the bland, when we can have so much more thanks to Pinup Girl Clothing.
The Delia comes in two other colour ways aside from black; it also comes in a cherry red with black lace, and a deep purple with black lace. All three equally as elegant.
As mentioned, I sized down in the Delia to a small. My measurements are: 37-30-41 ( they have changed a touch in the last few months). A small fit me perfect, so be sure to check the size chart before ordering. I have seen a few other gals try the Delia on and they had to size down as well.
At $145 the Delia is worth every nickle! This is sure to be my new go to, party dress.
Retroglam.com has all three colours to order online and Rowena has them in store. Don’t let this number slip by, as it truly is a timeless piece. I felt beautiful, stunning even, in it and that is a sure sign that one should own such a dress!
