There are a few garments in my wardrobe that I’d classify as wearable art, and this dress is one of them. Despite being a huge Tolkien nerd for more than 2 decades now, I’ve never felt particularly inclined to dress up as a hobbit or elf…until I put on this dress and was enveloped in it’s ethereal beauty.
When I started this blog more than a decade ago, cottagecore didn’t have a name. But it was this aesthetic that kindled my love for fashion and led me to try and create a bit more representation for people who look like me. That was 2010. Now in 2022, cottagecore is fairly mainstream and has been so for a while now – yet the bodies that it centres remain as thin and white as ever.
The price tag certainly makes LeMuse’s styles a bit of an investment, but it’s so very worth it. I felt like an actual princess in the Mia dress and I was even stopped on the street while we were shooting and complimented on it!
