Congratulations Nicole Z. You are the winner of the Leona Edmiston Giveaway. Thanks for entering everyone and stay tuned for more giveaways on School of Mum!
This is a sponsored post.
I am not a fashion blogger. Or a fashionista…or fashion anything. I’m just an ordinary person who likes certain things but is mostly swayed by price and quality. I don’t really look at brand names or the store I’m buying it from. I just want it to look good, feel good and be the right price. That’s not too much to ask is it?
I’ve had a few fashion disasters in my time. I went from Primary school frills, to highschool tom-boy (jeans and hoodies anyone?), and then for a while it was fashion over pain as I froze to death in dresses outside pubs in freezing country Victoria weather. Such was the life of a uni student.
After not teaching for a while now, I’ve kind of slipped into the ‘whatever isn’t in the dirty clothes basket’ phase, and am going up and down the children’s aisles, way more than the womenswear aisles. I barely ever buy a new item of clothing unless I really need it.
However, with blogging bringing me its new adventures, I recently needed to attend a QV skincare event for Bub Hub and discovered I really didn’t own anything nice and wintery. I had a look online at Myer and saw some nice winter dresses by Leona Edmiston and that’s where this all began! I have never owned a dress with sleeves and they all looked so pretty and the price was right too. I had my lovely husband pick one up for me the next time he was in town and I was ridiculously happy with it.
After that, I ventured forth and checked out Leona’s website and I found myself falling in love with her style. What I like is, so many of Leona’s dresses are kind on the curves. Childbearing and being at home has brought me plenty of curves. A lot of the dresses emphasise what they should and minimise what they should…and I like that!
After chatting to their lovely marketing manager, I was thrilled to try out another dress from their range for the blog. The print drew me in immediately. The birds, butterflies and colour are so unique. I love that this Vivienne dress doesn’t look like ‘just another dress’. It’s different, and something to be noticed. I decided it would be perfect for my birthday dinner party!
The skirt is A-line which is really flattering and the pop of pink is so quirky and beautiful. It’s also super comfy! I didn’t want to feel awkward or not be able to move around properly seeing as I was the host. This dress allowed me to don an apron and keep moving about.
I was also able to keep up with my energetic little man who was loving all the hustle and bustle in the house so much you couldn’t take the cutest grin of his face…
I get dressed up so rarely these days. It felt so nice to wear something that was comfortable, fitted right and looked amazing. I know I can wear this again and again. I teamed it up with some comfy heels, nothing high for me!
So, like I said, I’m no fashionista, but you WILL find me heading over to the Leona Edmiston website about a once a week to check out their sales…and the Myer website too…I’ve become a little addicted.
