It really is a love-hate kind of relationship that I have with the Cottelli Cold Shoulder Wetlook Mini Dress. I love how it looks – emphasis specifically on the cold shoulder as I love this look for out and about regular clothes.
But from a comfortable wearing perspective, my love dies and I really dislike it 🙁 It’s too short, keeps riding up wayyy past my bum and yeah I am sure there are lots of you asking “why is this an issue?” but it really is. I spent more time being conscious of it than I did enjoying wearing it – it’s nice to be able to keep some bits covered up. Think of about it – you open a box of biscuits and go for the foiled covered one. Why? The suspense of not knowing – well it’s one of those kinda situations.
Yes, you read that right. I compared me wearing the Cottelli Cold Shoulder Wetlook Mini Dress to someone picking the foil biscuit outta the box. But like the biscuits, this dress is bland, unsurprising and a big disappointment for me!
I managed a few images where I look ok in it I guess. I just don’t feel sexy. I feel awkward. Again like the other piece I reviewed recently, I’m not in heels as I wanted to showcase how short this piece is. The other piece was short too but I could pull that off because it wasn’t tight. It was a skater style dress so it flowed better and swayed around my body, any bit of skin shown off looked playful.
The Cottelli Cold Shoulder Wetlook Mini Dress is made from 92% polyester and 8% elastane. Like the Maid outfit, it comes in stunning packaging but once I opened the lid, I was automatically struck with a horrible plastic smell – I hand washed the piece prior to wearing it and it isn’t as bad, so another few washes and it will go, I hope. I will admit I have worn the piece a few times and it gets a little more comfortable the more it’s worn. It ain’t, however, something that will jump out and scream ‘Wear me’. I like it but I don’t love it, sadly. It does wash well and the sizing or quality hasn’t changed.
Oh and if you do purchase it, watch out when putting it on. I stuck my head through the hole that should be for displaying boobage, which oddly enough was easier to get into than the actual hole for your head. The hole for your head is quite a tight fit. It also sits like a polo neck which I do really like. I opted for a size medium and I am a UK size 10 – I dunno, if I sized up, would my experiences have been better?
