Review: One Stop Plus

I'm forever on the hunt for basics with a twist, a great jumper with an added edge, a day dress with a difference. So when the lovely folk at One Stop Plus sent me this dress I was excited to try it out. It's just a black dress right? Well no, its the detailing that makes this dress stand out for me. I love the slight V neck and the dungaree styling.





It was quite a chilly day when I wore mine so I teamed it with a stripy jumper and thick black tights. Just one of the reasons I love this dress, its versatility. It can be worn with items under it and or on its on on sunnier days. 

The stitching detail around the neckline is lovely....


My only problem was the sizing really. According to the size chart on the site, I'm somewhere between a 24 and 26, and because it was the hip area I was coming up large on I went for the 26, I think in hindsight I could have gone for the 24 and it would have been fine. I'm usually a size 22, so its always worth checking the size chart when ordering online. The material has to look and feel of a linen but it doesn't crease as bad as linen. Overall I was really pleased with this dress, I'm looking forward to styling it in a variety of ways! It's a great length on me too, coming just below my knee, but again be aware of sizing, I'm 5'7", so this could come up very long on those of you shorter than that.

  2. I have found OSP to be really inconsistent with their sizing, if a size 30 dress doesn't fit a 22/24 then there's definitely something amiss there!
