Coming across Muse Clothing Company and their exceptionally comfortable, yet elegant, clothing line was like coming home, eyeing up a well-loved chair and perusing the shelves for a favourite book. The entire collection gives that same sense of visual familiarity due to the overall classic look to every dress; They're ones that would be expected in a wardrobe, yet are not so often found. Each dress has a look that would appeal to any variety of tastes, as they lend themselves to personalisation, while still giving a wardrobe staple for any nearly occasion. They're about as comfortable as that favourite chair too, believe it or not. I'm so tired of wearing something that rides up, is scratchy, that requires the good ol' boob-scoop because of the neckline or where I feel like I've stuffed myself into something that will go "scctch scctch" if I swish around in it. This dress was a pleasure to wear, visually and comfort-wise, and I ended up liking the colour much more than I figured I would when it arrived. I'm typically a basic black kinda gal but their moss dresses have appealed to me lately, after I branched out with the purple.
I truly did have one heck of a time deciding what I would enjoy the most but, luckily, the owner of the company had a couple of suggestions and I was thrilled to get to try out the Leona dress for this review;
I will admit that this style may not be the best cut for me, considering my bust size, but Facebook feedback has told me that I looked pretty good nonetheless.
Due to the bamboo fabric, you can wear this in various temperatures and not have to worry too much about sweating- it's incredibly breathable, was easy to clean and I actually tossed it in the dryer (even though it says to lay it out to dry) without any dire repercussions. Take that, dry clean only dresses!
I found the clingy fabric and the feminine detailing prevented any feeling of being "matronly" while wearing it, even though all of my skin was covered and my hem line came to just above the knee. I absolutely love the colour, as well as the fantastic surprise that I discovered my dress arrived with- a built in bra! That is always a welcome addition to any outfit.
I quickly appreciated the capped, cute sleeves and the coordinating peplum detailing on the front. It's a classic, timeless, Kate-esque piece that would suit a variety of ages and it is the perfect combination of sophisticated and sexy.
I found that the outfit looked nice while paired with a simple, tan pump or kicked up a knotch by a 6 inch stiletto and some killer accessories. It lends itself to a couple of different looks but, I can pretty much guarantee, you will feel confident in whichever you go with while wearing a Muse number.
