Calling all fairytale loving modern day princesses who want nothing but to roam free and look like something out of a Monet painting. I had to dedicate a special post for this work of an art dress from the American brand Selkie. Selkie is an interesting brand that caters to all sizes and more up to 5X and there is the signature Selkie style that makes every dress a special piece in your wardrobe.
Think of this as a brand you would want to treat yourself with which is what I did. One thing that i really love about Selkie is that it is low waste. They pre sell many of their designs to ensure that each outfit is being bought. So there is no mass production. Some garments have only 15-20 ever made , this is why most sizes sell out quickly and it is fastest fingers first. Which makes the dress I bought very special. They usually announce the new drops on their socials so it is easier to keep track that way.
I love pastels and the dress I bought some time ago was the Monet Puff Dress and as the name suggests the print has been inspired by the famous Monet Paintings themselves. Here is me trying hard (and probably failing ) to be like those paintings.
The Monet Puff Dress
There are so many ways to style this puffy and cute dress. Team it up with some black socks and strappy heels (yes that’s still a thing!) or some black boots plus a black bag and you get this nice and edgy look with a touch of girly glam. Could this be the new date outfit when we are allowed out?

Find your happy colours. They are the ones that make you feel beautiful inside.
Or you could just team it up with some neutral heels and a nice pastel or neutral bag. With Selkie dresses one thing to remember is to measure your bust properly because the sizing is very much dependent on that as the rest of the dress is pretty much freeform. I absolutely love the neckline and the gathers. The fall of the dress is so flattering and will be perfect for any body shape.
Here is a closer look at the makeup that I wore with this dress. As you may have guessed by now I like my makeup as natural looking as possible. So here I have simple eyes with nice bold lips.
With a Selkie dress you are pretty much sure that not a lot of people are going to have it. So there is not going to be a situation where you are stepping into a party dressed like everyone else! If anything you will be a walking day dream.
Here is a little bonus look for you – style your Selkie with a pastel blazer and its so girly and chic.
So give them a shout if you can , I love them because they are very much a women empower women business with a style of its own. 10/10 for them for being very customer friendly.
