You might remember me gushing all about the new season releases. Spring/Summer was looking mighty fine. Hope & Harvest were one of those brands so when they approached me about the new season items I was more than happy for them to send me a piece or two. Derrr. When we made arrangements to give a piece away, it was even better.

So let me present to you, the Hope & Harvest Grecian Dress in white.Β Also available in black, white or grey this dress wears like a dream. I have pretty broad shoulders which can be a problem for off the shoulder styles. There’s nothing worse than having to pull and tug at the neckline all the time. It totally kills that relaxed vibe all that fidgeting. The fabric is light enough to be comfortable but dense enough to give good coverage even in the white.

For those looking at this dress for themselves I have knotted up the hemline and doubled over the belt {you’ll be able to see better images on the belt in the online store}. This allowed me to blouse the dress a little to show off the ankle straps of my shoes and create that cute blousing effect in the top without loosing the shape. The sleeves are rolled up because, in my opinion, they just look better that way.

    I love the swing top in white. I would wear it with some black thicker leggings and some flats. I think it would be really cute!

  • Lauren

    I love this look on you!

  • Kace

    I love love love the Grecian maxi dress. It is so summery and light and I can absolutely picture myself wearing it in 2 months when I am on Hamilton Island! The thing I love most is that it has sleeves so I wouldn’t be self conscious of my arms. I would style it with some neutral detailed sandals and gold necklace/bracelet to glam it up during the night. I actually don’t own a dress so I would adore having a piece like this in my wardrobe!

  • Trudes

    I adore this dress. It is feminine without being froufrou. I love that hides what you want hidden but still flashes some skin. To style, I would keep it simple – large silver hoop earrings, a statement cuff and some simple summer wedges to finish it off.

  • Simone Gall

    Well this might be my new favourite dress. I have previously swooned over the button up with a collar dress. But I think for summer this dress is perfect. You wear it so well. I must admit I have stolen many of your ideas lately…:-) and you have my favourite necklace on.

  • Anne

    I absolutely love the Grecian maxi dress. I AM AN ABSOLUTE FAN OF OFF THE SHOULDER LOOK! It’s such a feminine, yet classy style. I’m off to Asia in 4 weeks and I definitely can use a cool, summery piece like this to mix up my outfits while I’m away. It’s such a versatile dress that I can see it casually worn with some nice sandals and statement necklace as I’m walking round the markets OR with some Roman Sandals statement earrings for a night of drinks and cocktails at the bar. I see this dress being worn in at least six different ways so its one of those staple pieces I would wear often. I may need more than one lol

  • Michele Bayada

    I love this dress it looks soft and drapey. I love the off the shoulder look, with plenty of multi coloured jewellery. Or drape a huge gypsy coloured shawl for cooler evenings. Gorgeous flats or wedges, I can’t wait to own it.

  • Claire

    I already have this in black and now I think I want it in white! Love the styling Suger. Hope and Harvest would have to be my absolute favorite label, their styles are sexy, classic and timeless.

  • Kate Buckland

    I love the Grecian dress – personally I would style it up with gold sandles, a gold belt and a clutch to dress it up for a night out πŸ™‚

  • Kathy Johnston Kerr

    dress looks amazing on you πŸ™‚ i have only just starting wearing white now white is my new black lol

  • Maria Griffin

    I love the Grecian dress. Off the shoulder looks good on me so I’d wear it in black with rose gold accessories, black strappy flats with gold accents, and a gold link belt. My favourite look from the range would be the belted skirt. I’d wear it with a tucked in shirt with some round toed heels, ready to go out to dinner or the movies looking fabulous.

  • madame rouge

    I love the white on you

  • This dress is just so elegantly simple. I’d love it in white with turquoise strappy wedges and a huge turquoise statement necklace. Off to check out their website.

  • Cara Hann

    Wow, that looks amazing on you! Love the off-the-shoulder look!

  • P.S. I forgot to say you look amazing. Love the whole outfit on you. Stunning.

  • My favourite item is the hot pink split skirt, in fact I included it in my ‘Things I Love Thursday’ post last week. I just love the colour, it’s awesome, and the splits just make it. I would totally style it with a black and white striped top and some flatform sandals.

  • Katarina Harris

    Looks fantastic on you Melissa!

  • Kat Thompson

    Loving the grecian dress (especially in grey). But my fave piece from the site would have to be the wide belted skirt in sea.. gorgeous colour! I would wear it with my Black Milk swims and wedges for a fun, summery look!

  • Jodie Henderson

    OMG that dress looks amazing on you πŸ™‚ love it!!

    I really love the Beaded Cut Out Shirt White, I would wear it with skinny jeans, a pair of black shiny heals and I would have to find a similar necklace to the one on the model, chunky white and gold rope it is stunning!

  • I am actually loving their blue two-tone maxi. That’s gorgeous. but I am thinking the white Grecian dress for Christmas! With sequined sandals, a big floppy hat and a red manicure.

  • Liz Wylie

    I love the Off the Shoulder Party Dress – with leggings, a big silver necklace and my silver heels – I’d be one hot Mumma πŸ™‚

  • Claire Amelia

    I’ve never owned a maxi dress in my life but from the new range I couldn’t go past the two tone maxi in cobalt. It seems like a great ‘beginners maxi’ and I’d wear it to the beach every day teamed with a huge floppy sun hat, sunglasses and sandals πŸ™‚

  • Lizzy


  • Too hard to choose between the two tone grey dress and the black Grecian maxi. Both gorgeous!!

  • Michelle

    Love the dress! I would wear it with my brown braided belt and some long silver dangly earrings,like a chandelier type earring, add some silver and turquoise bracelets, some sexy summer sandals and wha la! Gorgeous easy summer style!

  • Vi

    Love the Grecian Dress in Grey. You look great!!! πŸ™‚

  • Sonya Coleman

    I love the boho goddess lace dress. I’d wear it over a black body con dress I have and would match it with a thin peach and gold belt, wearing it just under the bust. I’d also wear some gold Grecian sandels, and gold and peach accesseries πŸ™‚

  • Emma Hinchliff

    Loving this dress I’ve been in love with the Kimono and the blue Wide Belted Skirt too!! Gosh I wish I had more money!!!!! You are looking fabulous by the way Shoogs!!! I need that necklace in my life too I think!!!

  • Rachel T

    I love how you’ve styled this dress! I’m pretty keen to get into the off the shoulder/strapless style myself the summer. Hubby loves my shoulders lol.

    My favourite piece from the new season is the wide belted skirt in sea. I have such a soft spot for this colour! And saying I’d wear a colour, any colour as a skirt is a huge deal for me because I’m scared of colours so I’d pair it back a bit and match in shoes and accessories with the brown of the belt. And then just team it with a basic top in white or black πŸ™‚

  • Other than the grecian dress I love the boho kimono – I love throwing them over a black tee and pants and heels for work for a casual but dressed up look.

  • Sarah Collins

    i can’t decide what i like better… the cut out shirt, floral kimono or the pink two-tone maxi. So pretty! I love maxi dresses but haven’t found a good strapless bra so i can do the off shoulder style

  • Deb Walters

    Gosh there is such a lovely selection and they all look so comfortable. The Grecian dress in grey looks so soft and flattering. The wide belted skirt is also incredible, it’s so difficult to get a skirt that falls softly without bringing attention to the bottom or hips-love it.

  • Michelle

    Awesome giveaway! I’m totally getting those shoes to go with my new dress!;-)

  • KazzBang

    Love the off the shoulder style. I’m also lusting after the two-tone shift dress in pink. So beautiful!

  • Meagan Kerr

    I love love love this in you Suger! White is so amazing for the warmer months, and while I’ve never really worn much white I would love to integrate it in to my wardrobe more!

    I love so many of the items in Hope & Harvest’s new collection, but I think my fave would have to be the wide belted skirt in sea green. It’s so pretty and looks like the perfect skirt to make me in to a mermaid on land for summer! I’d wear it with a cropped top and simple sandals


  • dina

    I love Hope and Harvest and would love to win this Maxi in Black

  • katarina

    Wow, the dress is gorgeous πŸ™‚

  • katarina

    I would also like to try the Rio skirt and blazer

  • this white dress looks really good on you, looks comfy!
    Id try Hope & Harvest’s Knot dress. Id like a coloured one, maybe blue or hot pink but would probably get the black because Its more versatile. That way you can accessorise the dress with colour; a belt, cardi, bag, shoes, jewellery etc all in a colour that suits your mood for the day!

  • I’m kinda dying over their kimonos – esp this one Perfect over my swimsuit or over a sleeveless black dress! The colours just feel so summer & so perfect for a colour pop in my nearly all-black wardrobe haha.

    I would style the Grecian Maxi with a colourful skinny belt & some brightly coloured flats. I used to shy away from white clothing (being so pale myself) but after joining Aussie Curves I have a “screw that, I do what I want!” attitude to fashion rules – my new motto being if it feels good I wear it πŸ™‚

    This off the shoulder look is amazing on you – totally on my to-try list. Broad shouldered women unite!

  • Olivlia

    I was lucky enough to meet Harvest one night when she and her partner dined at my restaurant. At the time I was unaware of her business and promised that as soon as I got home I would look her up ( she gave me her card, so that wasn’t hard searching for my forgetful mind! I must say that I was very impressed from the designs , cuts and patterns from their label. Not your same old boring mu mu cover you up because you don’t have the same structure as a waif runway model, look. I now have my ‘wish list’ that I have ever so lovingly laid around the house in various areas, in hope that my partner sees and I get myself some beauties under the Christmas tree this year. The Grecian dress, in black, was number one! I love how it flows and sits on your body, emphasizing on our curves in a subtle yet great way. Keep up the great work girls!

  • Nikki Hogan

    I love love this dress in white. Unfortunately as I lost my job recently i won’t be able to afford it sadly. If I won it I would wear it Christmas Day with green saltwater sandals and red jewellery and try my best not to spill gravy on it.

  • dinosaur eyes

    I would love to pair this with some awesome blue jewellery! I wasn’t a fan of blue before, but blue and white together is awesome.
