Dress: Leona Edmiston
Shoes: Chie Mihara
Don’t you just LOVE this dress? I spotted it on the Leona Edmiston Facebook Page a few weeks ago, and fell head-over-heels for the ruched front and bold floral print. Theoretically I hunted it down in the shops just for a sticky beak. But I didn’t expect it to fit so well or look so good.
The fabric is the typical Edmiston jersey; it could probably survive a nuclear strike, and it’d still come out the other end unscathed. It’s got reds, yellows, blues and greens and will go pretty magnificently with just about every pair of shoes I own.
The wide neckline shows off my collarbones to great effect and the elbow-length sleeves will make it a great trans-seasonal piece. The ruched front really plays up my curves, and my Mum tells me my ass looks great too.
All in all it was well worth the pretty hefty (for me) price tag – especially as I was able to take advantage of the 20% and $20 off promotions.
Favourite feature? The “Jaffa“-esque buttons. They’ve had me craving orange/chocolate lollies for days now.
Oh my! What a stunning dress, and you look absolutely gorgeous in it!
It looks just like it was made for you!
Congrats on finding your wedding dress too!
Definitely an amazing find! I love the neckline and the ruching the most
You look amazing! I must get me one of dem dresses!
I love floral dresses so I’m a fan!! The buttons are super cute and the neckline is perfect for you 🙂
I liked your pics so much I went and checked out the website, and have to say the dress looks even better on you than it does on the model. You look fabulous.
This is floral done right! I wanted one too, but alas I would need one size bigger then they make and wow that is one expensive jersey dress. It looks totally amazing on you though.
Wow! I don’t often comment, but I love, love, love this dress on you. It’s amazing! Just gorgeous. You look fantastic.
That’s a georgeous dress. I want one too!!!
Omg YES! this dress is GORGEOUSSS
Lilli, you had me at ruched front! I want to hug whoever invented it! It is the most curvy girl friendly detail I have ever seen! I love the colorful print of the dress. It totally suits you! You look great!
Ooh I love it. Is it ruched at the back as well?
Lilli, you look absolutely fabulous. The dress was made for you!
Totally worth the money, whatever it cost- you look DYNAMITE! It would look great with the Poetic License shoes too 🙂
Wow! That dress looks FANTASTIC on you. I love the ruching and the buttons.
I love a Leona. She is FABULOUS.
I have a Leona dress problem…..
I LOVE leona! I love this dress! Looks gorgeous and the buttons pop just right! The material is so brightly pretty!
Yes they are expensive but…..but….they will last forever…and never go out of fashion…and you wear them heaps cos they look good…and…….. Good Buy!

i’m a regular reader of your blog and have never commented, but i gotta say, i LOVE this dress of you. you look amazing! well worth the price tag!
Holy smokes. This dress is amazing. I want one. But yeah, I cannot afford a $500 dress. I’d need a lot of sales to make this plausible! Kudos to you for stalking one — it was worth it!
I would be getting married in that stunner dress! It is FABULOUS! Honestly!
Stunning! Love Leona. Whats the sizing like??
You look amazing and beautiful.
Lilli, this dress is AMAZING. Good call! I might have to (save the pennies and…) get one too! xx
down on your knees, nations!
marvelous, fabulous, stunning!
you look gorgeous!!
That dress looks fantastic on you. Really lovely. Now I want one – if I weren’t so pregnant I’d be buying it right now.
Hey Lilli! Love your website. Just a general comment: how about a side view of your outfits? I often wonder what they look like side on (especially your shoes!).
Thanks heaps, keep up the good work 🙂
I think Leona Edmiston just had a sudden run on this Dress because of how fabulous you look in it must agree with the_queen_of_cheese the Dress looks better on you than the Model it’s gorgeous.
This dress is AMAZING! So pretty and so sexah!
awww, I love this retro-inspired wiggle dress 🙂 Sadly, I dare say I could make this dress for myself for $80. Looking forward to trying it out, and saving $420 in the process.
when you can sew/construct, $500 = LOL
Swoon. Just… swoon.
OMG. You look AMAZING. I so want that dress!! xxxx
Love that print! I really want to get that print in the Annette style maxi dress, but not until sale time. 🙂
You look divine Lilli 🙂
Yes, I do – gorgeous dress 😀
this looks AMAZING on you!!! I think it’s just about my favourite of all your outfits ever!
I love this dress, I love the shoes and I love it all on you. You look amazing.
That dress makes your body look amazing! It makes your waist look teeny tiny. Love it and it looks so pretty on you. 🙂
You look beautiful! And the buttons totally remind me of jaffas too! 🙂
wow, the dress is AWESOME and suits you perfectly. LOVE IT
I haven’t been on your blog for quite a lot of tim. you’ve changed!!! you look so pretty!

tbtw, he dress is lovely!
I adore this dress – you look fab in it. I tried it on the other day and refereed to the buttons as Jaffas too!
But I really love her ‘ Mia; dress in the botanical print more at the moment. I feel like such a lady in Leona’s designs (but sadly can’t afford them often either).
WOW!!! This is a stunning outfit! My gosh I found out about your blog via pininterest! I’m looking for an outfit for myself and it’s really nice to be able to see different options. Really love your blog!!!! I’m bookmarking it now. Thank you so very much!
It’s so beautiful, Lilli. I might have that dress’ style copied! You think that will work well in polka print?
I think it’d be SCRUMPTIOUS in a polkadot print. I’m partial to a good set of polkadots
I had to leave a comment! You look sensational! Stunning!
I am so glad you are enjoying the dress!
