The Elsie Dress - Archive by Alexa

If you've not heard, Alexa Chung has released a collection with British fashion retail icon, Marks and Spencer. Inspired by pieces from the M&S archive, the collection brings back to life some of the brands classics, all topped off with an Alexa twist. Anything Alexa puts her name to is bound to be a success and will send many bloggers/fashion magazines into a bit of a frenzy, myself included. Each time new pictures were released I'd immediately click on them trying to find out a bit more about the range. At first, there wasn't much I liked the look of until I saw this dress on a model at the press party a few months ago. As soon as the collection was released at 9am last Wednesday, I immediately put The Elsie Dress in my basket and picked it up the next evening from my local M&S, and somehow managed to walk out of there without any veggie Percy Pigs.
The quality of the dress is lovely and I felt the whole collection was really reasonably priced which was a lovely surprise. I'm really thrilled with my dress and I know I'll get plenty of wear out of it throughout the year. I just hope the next collection (if there is one) has a few more 60s inspired pieces with even some playsuits thrown in! Fingers crossed for some more pieces this summer!

  1. Alexa's collection is amazing, but I don't really suit it :( You look absolutely gorgeous in this dress though, and your hair is beautiful! x

    1. I felt the same about a lot of the pieces, this dress was the only thing that was my style really. Although I do the whole collection has something for all types of body shapes!

  2. Lovely clothes in the collection, I too think that some of the clothes may not suit my style. But I do love this dress, I like how you styled it with the coat!

    1. Thanks Kayleigh! I think a lot of people felt the same way about the collection, there were only a couple of other pieces I really liked too.

  3. Can I ask which size did you pick? I'm from Italy, no M&S here so i can't try the dress on :(
