I’ve been a fan of Isabella Oliver since I first moved to England eight years ago. I tripped upon the brand initially completely out of the blue while searching for maternity clothing for a friend. My google search had produced a cardigan that I absolutely adored, which was of course made by Isabella Oliver. As it turns out, so did every other friend I had that has been pregnant since. And while I was feeling smug for a while about discovering such a fantastic brand of maternity clothing, it turns out that Isabella Oliver was no secret at all. Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow and countless others have stepped out in Isabella Oliver during their pregnancies and all have looked nothing less than stunning in the pieces they’ve chosen. Ok, don’t panic…this giveaway is not for pregnant women!
It wasn’t until recently that I was made aware that you don’t have to be pregnant at all to enjoy the fabulous designs of Isabella Oliver. The brand have a womenswear line called Isabella Oliver 365 which features basics that will fill out any closet nicely. And trust me, Isabella Oliver has a lot of experience in making women look beautiful no matter what their size and they have applied these wardrobe secrets to the 365 to benefit us all!
Last week I had a great tour of the offices and the new collection available for Spring Summer. While the basics are all still there, Isabella Oliver have taken a step out into the “fashionable trends” arena and done so with great success. Many of the pieces were missing while I was viewing as they had been called out for glossy magazine shoots – always a good sign! Here’s a look at what I did see… (and don’t forget to keep scrolling down for the giveaway).
So now time for the good news for my readers. Isabella Oliver has kindly given me one dress to giveaway to one lucky reader! And don’t worry, this isn’t a dress that’s been leftover from another season or some old shabby thing that didn’t sell…this is their top notch dress for Spring Summer 2011 and you’ll completly understand why once you slip it on. I swear to God it makes you feel like Sophia Loren. It grabs every curve at the most flattering points and holds you in where you might otherwise seem a bit flabby (yes, we all have those food baby days).
So here’s how to enter. It’s simple and painless, I swear.
