Review of Voodoo Vixen’s “Faith” dress

Review of Voodoo Vixen’s “Faith” dress

A few months ago I was contacted by a representative of Voodoo Vixen and was asked if I’d be interested in reviewing a dress from their retro inspired line. Of course I quickly jumped over to the website to view what fantastic items they had to offer and at first I was disappointed to see that they did not have a plus size selection. I was then directed to the correct section (I think the website was still a bit under construction) that had the plus size offerings. Although I did find a very cute dress, I was very disheartened to see that it is was a very small selection. Since then, I’ve noticed that they have added a few new items to their plus size section, but as they have 110+ different dresses in traditional sizes, they only have 7 dresses in Plus Size and 6 cardigans. However, that shouldn’t deter you from checking them out. I only wish that the plus size selection was larger as there are several really cute dresses that would be wonderful in larger sizes.

I chose the Faith dress to review as it was the only one that seemed to suit my style. I did have a little difficulty in figuring out what size to choose. I typically wear a US 18 or 20 or 1X or 2X depending on the brand. As any plus size gal knows, sizing can range drastically from brand to brand – don’t get me started on the ridiculous sizing from Bettie Page (or Tatyana now, I believe) Clothing!!!!!

After getting the exact measurements of the dress I chose the size 3X, thinking if it was a little large I could take it in. Well it arrived promptly, and it fit great, if not a tiny bit snug. I was pleasently surprised to see that it was a knit dress and the length was perfect. I decided to style it with a tan cinch belt just to break up the pattern a bit. I also added a vintage hat and purse and tan maryjane heels.

What I love about this dress are the shoulders. They poof up a bit and really create a nice silhouette and give a little umph to the décolleté as the scoop neck is a bit unremarkable. I love dresses and tops that have a bit of detail at the shoulders, I adore shoulder pads, but don’t see them much in today’s styling. So this detail was an added surprise. Although this is a knit dress, it’s still lightweight, so I can see myself wearing this more in the Spring or Fall.

    I really love this dress on you…like alot! And how you accessorized was perfect! the pattern is lovely but I agree with the belt on breaking it up, or even a cute cardigan as well.

    Great Review

      Thanks doll! I originally thought of a cardigan, eapecially since it was cold that day, but then you loose the detail of the sleeves. If I find a cardigan or jacket that has a nice shoulder/sleeve detail I will have to pair that.
