Tips from Roberta Lee
I love the Ophelia dress in green silk which can be dressed up or dressed down for a more boho vibe. If like me you are petite, you’ll need heels to elevate the design feature at the back, if again like me you have curves and a tiny waist you can even add a belt. I’ve teamed this dress with black strappy heels, a statement black belt and my Embellished Truth clutch for a fierce but feminine look.
Belles of London is a great substitute for those of us who likes styles often found on the high-street by stores like Topshop, H&M and Zara.
