Review: Catalina Dress

I have been sent this beautiful red Catalina Dress  dress by uttam direct





I can’t stop touching this dress! It’s made from 100% pure silk which makes it soft and delicate against skin. It has a bright summery flower pattern on it without being over powering. I can’t believe it only costs £59.95 plus it’s a handwash which I love as you know how much I hate dry clean only! The dress is also available in a light blue and black.










This dress would make a perfect holiday item as it would look great thrown over your bikini or swimsuit whilst your nipping to the bar or pairing it with shorts whilst your taking in the sights.


It is slightly see-through so if you not comfortable showing some skin it looks fabulous when layered over a strappy top and can be dressed down for daytime with some cropped jeans and flip flops. It’s a real head turner as evening wear also. I wore this for my aunties birthday which was a smart/casual event. I’m usually struggling to find something to fit that dress code but this dress paired with some black leggings, a black strappy top and some black boots fitted the bill perfectly.









I paired this outfit with black accessories to really showcase the dramactic red of the dress. I got lots of complimentary comments and for once didn’t feel overdressed!




I was really impressed with the speedy delivery of this item as I hate to wait for an item I’m looking forward to receiving! Uttam direct ship using royal mail and it is free on all orders over £20 so your not paying anything extra. The dedication to there customers is amazing as they will ship to anywhere in the world and they’ll even estimate your delivery date!
