Miss Nouvelle is an exciting new brand, launching only a couple of months ago and already making waves! Owner and designer Holly has had a long love affair with vintage styles and has a history of working in the fashion industry, so it made sense to start creating her own high quality vintage-inspired clothing. All Miss Nouvelle products are proudly designed, printed and sewn in the USA, and her wonderful hand-designed fabrics reflect her love of vintage novelty prints. I have been lucky enough to try the Twirl Skirt in Sunsoaked print for today’s blog post, which has definitely made me long for some warm weather!
The Twirl skirt is a full circle style, so it definitely lives up to its name! Being pleated all the way round the waist there is a lot of swish to this skirt. The fabric is a cotton sateen which feels super luxurious, and the skirt itself has pockets and a sweet self-fabric belt. Then of course there’s the amazing print! I am wearing the Sunsoaked print, which features mint green and purply-blue lobsters, magazine covers, sunscreen and sunglasses, all on a candy pink background. This is one of three fabulous prints that Holly designed herself (the others being the TikiTastic and Atomic prints), they are all so fun and colourful so I can’t wait to see more of her work!
The sizing at Miss Nouvelle ranges from Small to X-Large, with 1X-4X on the way soon! I am wearing a size Small, which per the size chart caters for a waist size of 25-26″. My waist usually measures at 24″ (depending on how much I’ve had for lunch), so I thought it might be slightly on the bigger side but it was a really comfortable fit. I could also use the matching belt (which has multiple grommets, yay!) to cinch in a little to define my waist more. The length is perfect on me, falling a couple of inches below the knee and easily fitting a two layer petticoat underneath.
You can purchase the Twirl skirt directly from the Miss Nouvelle website for $115USD/$160NZD. I was so excited to be their first international shipment, and I’m sure there’ll be many more to come! You can also get free shipping within the US when you spend over $150 or internationally for orders over $300 – just use the codes FREESHIP or FREESHIPINT respectively.
