For Love And Lemons Desert Rose Maxi Dress

I have been waiting to share this look with you for a while now and I finally am! This gorgeous For Love And Lemons Desert Rose Maxi Dress was a dress that I instantly saw and fell in love with. It’s possibly one of the most prettiest dresses that I have ever seen. It comes as a black slip that you wear underneath and then the sheer net roses embroidered dress overlay sits on top, so they are two separate pieces. I took it in size small which is roughly an 8 and because the slip dress has a lower back line, it really shows off the back as well, giving it a much more sexy look.

I hadn’t heard of For Love And Lemons before until I saw this dress when looking online and I can safely say that I am now hooked on the brand (and waiting for the sale!). As this Desert Rose Maxi Dress is such a stand out piece though, I wanted to make sure that I kept it the focal point of the whole look and only paired the dress with my Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 in Black Kid, just to elongate the legs and keep it classy.

In terms of the location, we shot this For Love And Lemons dress at the local farm in the countryside, so there’s a really nice setting to complement it. I think it turned out as one of my best photoshoots to date, in terms of the setting and the dress, so I’m really happy. If I could own this dress and keep it forever, I definitely would, I’d be wearing it to every single event possible as it’s that pretty! I almost couldn’t part with it after borrowing it for the shoot! I’d love to know your thoughts on this dress though! Have you ever tried anything from For Love And Lemons or a dress similar?

    I love the fact that there are cactus on the dress!!! I mean, it is certainly beautiful, but I love that when you look closely, the dress offers a little bit extra and makes it even more fun. Absolutely beautiful, and I totally agree, one of your best shoots to date!

      Oh that’s strange, not sure what happened there? Maybe the URL was typed wrong? So glad you like it though! Thank you so much for the award! That’s really kind of you!

      • August 21, 2015 / 3:50 am

        Yep, it shows as if some codes on your site has messed up, I tried to reach out minutes after minutes before I gave up lol.. So I just decided to try again and come back after hours, and glad it’s working again.

        I don’t think it’s the url, because I followed the newsletter I received from your site whenever you have a new post. But never mind, glad your site is just fine. xo

        • August 21, 2015 / 11:00 am

          Oh I know what that was! It was because I was going through changes for my blog yesterday, adding the slider and things in, it was down for about 5 minutes while it changed. You must have been unlucky and chosen those 5 minutes to check, ha ha! It will be fine now though!

    Omg I’m almost speechless Lorna! That dress is to die for. One of my favorite looks so far. Loooove it.
    RYC: I’m not going to wear that skirt with a sweater cos it’s my sister’s skirt and she on the photos too. I have tried it on and it looks awful on me. I’m too smalll and my legs are to chubby for skirts like that πŸ˜‰ but I’m sure it looks fabulous with a sweater. A shorter version would suit me better. I hope I’ll find one and then I’m going to try it with a sweater. Happy Friday Lorna!!

    Wow this dress is stunning! Beautiful photos and styling! I have to say you look like Taylor Swift! I hope you take it as a compliment (I’m never sure because some people love her, some people hate her). Anyways, wishing you a lovely weekend!

    I’ve just published a new post about a disappointing cooperation with a sponsor called Dresslink.
    I don’t recommend them as a sponsor to anyone!
    Please come and have a read so you know why.

      Thank you so much! I get that often that I look like Taylor, I do take it as a compliment as she’s lovely, so thank you! I’m heading there now to find out about your collaboration. As I blog on a professional level, I never accept collaborations with brands like them anyway, but thanks for the heads up!

    LOVE the dress, Lorna! It’s so pretty, just like you!!! Oh, and those Loub’s! On fleek, girl!!
    I truly hope this day is as beautiful as you are, my dear friend!

      It’s gorgeous isn’t it?

  21. June 13, 2016 / 7:54 pm

    This dress is absolutely stunning, and looks like it was made for you Lorna. I’m revisiting some of your earlier posts, and this look definitely caught my eye! A dress like this would be ideal for summer festivals this time of year, and makes me think of a glamorous Coachella look! The images are also really lovely, and the countryside makes the perfect backdrop for this look.

      Thank you, Saba! It truly was the most perfect dress. I was beyond gutted that I couldn’t keep it. It was just too expensive to buy. But it’s still one of my favourite shoots to date!

  22. June 14, 2016 / 10:40 pm

    Oh that’s a shame! It would have been nice if they’d gifted it to you! As it’s summer again and the height of festival season, it’s quite possible that a similar style to this will come around again! Hopefully!

    xx

    • June 15, 2016 / 11:58 am

      I know! It would be lovely to find something similar, but I don’t like music festivals much as they are too busy and crowded, and loud. But I still love the fashion!

  23. June 15, 2016 / 10:33 pm

    I know exactly what you mean Lorna! Unfortunately I find the crowds too stressful to be around as well, so I haven’t been able to attend any festivals. But I love the festival fashions that come out on the high street every summer! Especially the kimonos and bright prints!

    xx

    • June 15, 2016 / 11:10 pm

      Kimonos I adore! I have a really cute one I have worn before! They are so good!

Thanks for your comments =) I read & reply every one =)
