  • Supporting Small Businesses – Livvy And Rose*

    If there is one thing I love, it is making you discover new brands. Big, global but small as well. There are so many of them and sometimes it is a bit hard to find what you are looking for. Thus, I have decided to start a new blog post series dedicated to small businesses. And today, I am starting with the first brand, Livvy and Rose.

    Livvy and Rose are a small start-up company based mainly online but that also do fashion shows, events and pop up shops. They sell fashion and accessories for ladies and little girls and they recently launched a Curve range to offer sizes from 8-28. They aim to provide stylish, on-trend fashion at affordable prices and want to offer something unique to their customers so they will love shopping with the brand and come back for more! Livvy and Rose recently won the Theo Paphitis #SBS award, the #SmartSocial award on Twitter and they were also a finalist in the Inspire Women Awards (Entrepreneur and Start-Up category) earlier this year.

    A small business that has achieved quite a lot already and strives to go even further!

    There are a few things I really like about the brand. First, its inclusivity. All the pieces go from size 8 to 28, which means a very large number of women can wear them. Second, the variety of designs and styles. You know my love for colors so this brand could only be a win! A finally, the small prices which won’t break the bank!

    Livvy and Rose sent me two dresses as part of our collaboration. I took them both with me on my holiday to Corsica and they were perfect. The first dress is an orange sundress that makes the perfect beach cover up. The second dress is a butterfly print dress that is a great addition to your summer wardrobe and can be worn on a city stroll or on an evening out! As I was on holiday, my choice of accessories was limited so I styled both with my bamboo bag, a pair of wedges, some aviator sun glasses and my brother’s Panama hat!

    What do you think?

    Have you ever heard of Livvy and Rose before? What do you think of the brand? Do you like the designs? What do you think of this new blog series? Are you one to support small businesses too?

    Thanks a lot for stopping by. I hope you liked this post.

    See you soon,
    Love,
    Corinne

      I love the second dress so much! The design is really pretty! I don’t think I’d be able to pull of the orange dress but it really suits you! I love the hat and bag you’ve included in both outfits. I hadn’t heard of Livvy and Rose before reading your post but I’ll definitely be looking into them further.

      I’m a small business owner and I really appreciate support like this! It’s so valuable! Cool post, love the pics!

      Gorgeous as always!! I absolutely adore the orange especially, what a wonderful colour and print that dress is and I definitely agree that it’s perfect for the beach and the sun. This company sounds brilliant, there’s nothing I love more than hearing that a company goes above and beyond the typical 8-16 range as it proves they care about providing for the curvier ladies too!

      I love that you’re supporting small businesses. Pretty cool that Livvy and Rose are about inclusion and doesn’t break the bank with their clothes. LOVE the orange sundress on you. You’re rocking the look – especially with the bamboo bag.

      I do like supporting small businesses as well, and whilst I don’t focus on fashion, I did collaborate with quite a few start-ups in which I believed in. I really like your orange dress, is so perfect for a summer vacation.

    14. September 3, 2018 / 1:33 pm

      So many excellent options to style an outfit. I love dresses so I would wear any of the two looks being the orange my favorite due to the bright color. Love the idea of supporting small business too.

      I have never heard of livvy and rose before. This products looks awesome. I love the first one very much. Thanks for sharing and inform us about this wonderful brand.

    24. September 4, 2018 / 1:41 pm

      I have never heard of this brand before. The prints are interesting.

    25. September 4, 2018 / 2:44 pm

      Livvy and rose are indeed doing great for an upcoming brand. And for sure, the dresses are so pretty even though the first one appeals to me more; especially how you paired it with the straw bag. Very pretty!

      You look so cute! I’m all about supporting small businesses especially cute boutique stores!

    27. September 4, 2018 / 8:31 pm

      Those dresses are really cute. I love designs and colours. Especially the bright orange which is my favourite

    28. September 4, 2018 / 9:56 pm

      I love their dresses. They simply look gorgeous. Plus the fact that you are a beauty as well. You carried the dress perfectly.

    29. September 5, 2018 / 3:42 am

      Love the orange dress. I like the hem cut. the bag is so cute too! Good that you are thinking about small local businesses

    30. September 5, 2018 / 4:30 am

      Both dresses are very beautiful and you look amazing in them as always. I think the bamboo purse goes better with the second dress than it did with the orange sundress. I think the sundress would have gone better with a brighter handbag.
