    It’s a bold one!

    A bold print. Still love it in theory but did feel it overwhelmed me. To be fair, I order a size up bc it was the only choice in stock, and the extra fabric didn’t help matters.

    Who knew??

    I had been admiring Zuri dresses for many months, then took the plunge in the 'Surprise Me' sale. This was the result and I love it. I was indeed surprised as I don't think I had even seen this pattern on the Zuri site and wasn't sure how it would work for me, as I don't normally (ever) wear yellow. I have fair skin, blue eyes and greying light brown hair and this dress works. It's perfect for throwing on when you don't know what else to wear and I get many comments. I will definitely do the Surprise Me sale again!

    Stunning Surprise!

    I ordered two dresses during this year's Black Friday Surprise Sale, and this was one of the items that arrived at my doorstep! I had noticed this dress online, but thought that the colors were too bright and found the pattern too busy. I am so happy to say that I was WRONG and that this dress is just PERFECT! I've worn it twice and received nothing but the highest order of compliments. It's an absolutely gorgeous dress, and I am very happy with the selection Zuri staff made for me :)

    Awesome!

    I had been eyeing this dress for a while. I loved the purple, but wasn’t too sure of the yellow squiggles. I finally pulled the trigger, and I am so happy that I did! This dress definitely makes a statement, in the best way!

    More like light yes!

    The idea of purple and neon yellow in a fabric design can be a little intimidating at first. But don't let that stop you. Take a closer look and notice the delicate flower design in black underneath the bold pattern. This dress has depth and once you put it on you will be electrified in the best sense of the word. I wore it to a work event and then to an art opening back in January. I met so many people that night because of that dress. I highly recommend it!!
