Fabienne Chapot Lobster Print Dress

I think we brought the weather back with us from Turkey! Coming home to glorious sunshine certainly eases the post-holiday blues. It’s also nice to not have to pack the Summer clothes away, especially this Fabienne Chapot lobster print dress. I’ve been waiting months to wear it. I bought it from Secret Sales along with the pink and blue hats.

My introduction to the Fabienne Chapot line came about when I modelled for the-Bias-Cut.com last September. I fell in love with the beautiful and quirky prints (the newly launched Peachy print has my name all over it…literally!). In addition to the two hats I couldn’t resist buying this cold shoulder dress, even though it was mid Winter. Lobster prints and motifs were big last Summer, and I knew there was a risk that by the time I got to wear it, it might not be exactly “on trend”. But I bought it because I love it; I don’t care if it’s not this season’s print. I know I’ll be wearing this dress for many years to come.

The bag was obviously very popular because I had someone DM me on Instagram offering to buy it!

Continuing with the crustacean theme, I added my Topshop crab motif straw bag. I bought it last Summer just before it sold out. The bag was obviously very popular because I had someone DM me on Instagram offering to buy it! But I don’t want to part with it, especially as the crab is my zodiac sign.

A straw bag is the perfect accessory to pair with a Summer dress, and as it’s a neutral it goes with everything. I chose my accessories carefully with this in mind, as given the opportunity I’d overpack every single time. Last year I invested in a new luggage set, which looks much more stylish than the previous ragtag mix of cases. On the downside though, I can’t fit as much in. This has been the push I needed to pack more sensibly and selectively. I still need to learn how to refine my selection of jewellery though…I took way too many pairs of earrings! Old habits die hard 😉

Are you a disciplined packer, or do you stuff your suitcase full to the brim?

    This lobster dress is so adorable! The cut is very flattering with the whimsy of lobsters! I would even like a top with this fabric.

    Such a fun print – sorry if this comes out in caps, caps not selected but it’s showing caps on the screen.
    I love the bag too – crustaceans rule.
    looking forward to seeing emma peach in a peach print!

      Thanks Gail! I know what you mean about the caps – it’s the same for me. I need to have a look at the settings. I haven’t had time to fiddle with it since I installed it in a rush before I went on holiday.I wish I was better with all this techy stuff!

    Emma, I’m with you–whether or not the dress is on trend doesn’t matter as long as you love it! It’s sO cute, especially with the fun straw lobster bag!

    I have just one packing tip: try the packing cubes and rolling your clothes. it really helps!

    xx Darlene
