The Hybrid Dress of Dreams

Ever see a dress and you have no idea when on earth you’ll ever get chance to own it but need to have it regardless? That’s exactly what happened to me when I caught sight of the Isabella dress by Hybrid. I’m a sucker for a velvet dress at the best of times, but combine it with a maxi length and more than a hint of sequins and I’m a lost cause.

After the faded glitz and glamour of the festive season it felt good to get all dressed up again even if it was purely for the purpose of a blog post. I’d dress like this all the time if it was more socially acceptable (although give me a week and I’d be craving jeans and knitwear). I was lucky enough to be sent some gorgeous jewels from lolaandgrace
that coincided with the arrival of the dress so I popped on this chunky chain bracelet to finish off the look (for once in my life). The Henryka Daisy necklace is a permanent feature around my necklace recently and thankfully it seems to compliment every outfit.

After such a long hiatus from regular blogging I seem to have fallen out of the swing of writing engaging blog posts- if mine could ever be counted as such! Fingers crossed inspiration strikes soon…

In the mean time, what do you prefer- dressing up or dressing down?

  3. Wow the dress looks stunning on you! I prefer to dress up where possible but it isn’t that practical for every day life so I rarely do so.

  5. Va va voom! I loveeee this dress on you, Laura! I’ve never owned a Hybrid dress, I’m not really one for bodycon styles but this maxi is so flattering. Love the pretty bodice.
