My first plus style Youtube video and the Spree plus size shirtdress of dreams


I tweet a lot. And, often, the tweets are about the clothes I'm lusting over and one of the places I look at the most online for clothes is Spree. So I was tweeting in May about something or other on Spree when I got a DM from the community manager  -- hi bbz! -- saying they had decided to send me a gift card. I was gassed, obviously. I used that gift card to buy the shirtdress I'd been eyeing for weeks on the Spree website. The dress made its debut the evening of the Suzuki Swift launch. 

Even as I placed the order, in May, I was most excited about wearing the shirtdress in November when it's Sandal weather again, I was excited to wear it as a kimono. All that would be easy. But I challenged myself to first wear it now in the winter and see how it fairs. The first obstacle was I haven't really bought tights in two winters because it's always a tedious mission. I've just been wearing trousers. Below are three of the few ways I've styled the dress.

The Spree shirtdress


My favourite things about the dress are the lightness of the material, which will be amazing when the weather warms up again. I also like the sleeves, which are doing the bell thing that's been trending lately. I also like that the dress is maxi-ish (I'm tall and it's still pretty long on me). The fit is generous and I would have sized down to a 46 (22) had I known. The colour and pattern are also a favourite, especially for autumn-winter.

While the dress was bought with a gift card courtesy of SPree, this post and video were not part of the exchange aka this is not sponsored. See my policies here.
