Topshop Floral Tapestry Jacquard Pini Dress Outfit
When I first saw this Topshop Floral Tapestry Jacquard Pini Dress on their website, I knew that I had to style it! The colours were what drew me in, but the 70’s style print just added to that and made it such a beautiful piece to look at. I ordered it along with the Topshop Fine Knit Funnel Top that the model was wearing, so that I could wear this retro combination together, but when it arrived in person, I loved it even more than I had anticipated! It’s definitely designed to be worn over knitwear as it’s too low and the material is too thick to be worn without one, so it doesn’t sit right on the chest region, but over knitwear like this – it’s perfect!
When it came to the styling, I didn’t know if I wanted to go with some thigh high boots and make it even more vintage and 70’s inspired, or try and make the tapestry print a bit more modern. I went with the latter option and wore it with my Jimmy Choo Melba Boots and then finished it off with my Mulberry Lily Bag in Oak. I think the browns worked quite nicely with the colours in the floral print, so it’s a completely different type of outfit for me, but one that I love very much. So much so that I’m publishing these photos just a couple of days after shooting them and I usually have a few weeks turnaround instead! What do you think of the tapestry print? Do you love the style of dress too?
I did want to mention the Mulberry Lily Bag though, I’m shocked to see how much the price has gone up on this one! I remember when I bought mine years ago and it was under £400, but the price of it now is almost £800! That’s a huge increase and one that I certainly wouldn’t be willing to pay again knowing what they used to cost, so as alternatives to this bag, I would check out Michael Kors as they do some really pretty tan bags like the Selma, or I would look at A.P.C. Half Moon, those are cool too! Since the boots are quite pricey and out of stock as well (they’re years old too), I would take a gander at Kendall + Kylie or at Kurt Geiger as they have some great styles. I definitely recommend the funnel top and the jacquard tapestry dress though (shop just below), they’re very affordable! I took a size UK 10 in both and they fit really well, not too tight or too small. Lorna xx.
