Isabelle Dress in Green | Zoe Vine

A few weeks ago, I featured one of the new season prints (read it here) for my favourite Zoe Vine Dress Style – The Isabelle. It was a fun but sophisticated nautical print and today I’m sharing another favourite!

 The Isabelle Short Sleeve Summer Dress is such a flattering style while still having a relaxed and casual vibe. First released around this time last year in the beautiful Toile de Jour print, it’s made a comeback this season in not one, but three new prints. There’s two polka dot versions – a sunny yellow and a lime green and I decided to try out the latter since it’s such a different shade to my usual go-to emeralds and jewel toned greens.

The smaller polka dot print keeps it subtle and classy – sometimes a larger polka dot can just end up being too cliché! But this one is perfect in my opinion. The matching self-covered belt and contrasting buttons keep the whole dress clean and crisp while still having a POP to it.

My favourite thing about this dress is all the little details which combine together to really make it a fanstastic design and style. As a lover of button and belt details, the fact that this one comes with a proper, sturdy belt with grommets (as opposed to a slide belt) AND functional buttons down the front, makes the whole dress a winner in my eyes. And the added benefit of functional buttons? It’s breastfeeding friendly for all you pinup mama’s out there!

The other details I love in this dress are the looser fit sleeves, soft scoop neckline and pinup perfect hemline. This is the ideal length for me and I can fit my Malco Modes Samantha Petticoat under without too much showing or having to adjust it.

Now if you are wanting to order a Isabelle Dress for yourself then pay close attention to this next part – this style runs large so it’s best to size down. My 37″ bust puts me in the size 14 according to the size chart and 27″ waist in a 10. I can size down to a 10 comfortably but do bear in mind that there isn’t any stretch in this fabric so I wouldn’t recommend sizing down two sizes for everyone.

The Isabelle Dress is £85 and comes in sizes XS-2XL. Zoe Vine offers flat rate shipping of between £5-£9 depending on where in the world you are which is a incredible price!
