The dress was bought from the Hobbs website for £70 ($113 approx.) just before Christmas. The item is still available to purchase in size UK 8, 14 & 18 for £65 ($105 approx.).
As I stated in my previous post, the cost of the dress is a lot more than I would usually pay for a dress but it seemed to tick all the right boxes in terms of dress & sleeve length even though it’s not a petite item.
Without further ado, here are my thoughts on the Hobbs Knitted Snake Dress:
- It’s 100% merino wool it’ll keep me warm when it’s cold outside.
- It fits perfectly on me in terms of the length of the dress (90cm) and on the sleeves due to it’s 3/4 length.
- It’s fitted and shows off my waist.
- The print is more subtle and is smaller than the Marks & Spencer Petite Snakeskin Tunic making it perfect for petites.
- Feels very comfortable and relaxed on.
- Can be styled in lots of different ways as shown below.

- The only downside is that this dress is hand wash only rather than machine washable. I guess with the nature of the material, the print and the original cost of the item (£110/$178) you probably wouldn’t want to leave it in the hands of the washing machine gods!
- I love this dress and have worn it loads of time already and can see me wearing it for years to come. For the price, it’s definitely as investment piece. Like all my other knitted dresses I wear it with a full length slip underneath it to iron out the lumps & bumps.
