Liz Lisa, Cherry blossom dress


Bonjour mes petites amoureuses! I have been a little absent from the blogging world due to anxiety taking over and I find it difficult to think about anything else. On a plus, I may have just
 found the perfect spring dress! I found this Liz Lisa number on Storenvy, luckily at a super affordable price and coincidentally in my size. I find that many dresses on there are way too small to fit me (a size 10-12 is often marked as a L) so I was super happy to discover this!

The dress was wrapped with such care and attention, inside a tissue paper layer, tucked inside a pale blue felt envelope. It is another reason why I love ordering from small businesses on Storenvy, so much detail goes in to the packaging and you often get a couple of freebies thrown in to say thank you! The envelope had a little button string opening and red felt heart and the tissue paper layer was bound with string. The dress itself was inside a further layer of plastic, sealed with a pink unicorn sticker why am I such a sucker for cute details? 


The dress is beautiful, with a delicate lace pattern and flared skirt - and is of course pink like the famous sakura itself. It's really comfy and spacious and I can't wait to pair it with a cardi and long socks! I'm also thinking of maybe selling some of my dress collection I don't wear often, but I will let you know more as I go  I ordered from Pocky's store here on Storenvy and there are quite a few others available.


Additionally you can use the code 'icecreamandclara' to receive 10% off from Harajuku fashion, which also stocks similar items! It's been so beautiful and sunny, a pure blue sky spring kind of day today! What is the day like where you are?
