|Dress: Little Mistress*, Belt: Vintage|
I rarely do 'proper' on my blog - but there is always an occasion where a girl needs a dress that’s just a little bit formal. Of course I’ve dressed it down a little with ankle boots and crimped hair, but with that being said I feel oddly at home in this little number from Little Mistress. I love the classic style and I think it’s always important to have a dress in your wardrobe that won’t go out of fashion.
A dress that’s simplistic is a staple piece and not one to be taken for granted – this beauty fits like an absolute dream, it sits on my hips perfectly and cups my bottom just right. It’s a little larger on the top half but with a structured dress I always prefer a little more room to move around (major fear of ripping!). The mesh detail is my absolute favourite part though – it takes it from ‘ah she’s wearing a pretty, formal dress’ to ‘OOH, she’s wearing a really pretty, formal dress’ see the difference? :) It just gives it that extra edge but the length means it’s still completely appropriate for events where you should probably be keeping those thighs and bottoms covered ladies!
I feel that in my other life, (where I’m Audrey Hepburn FYI) you’d probably see me wearing something like this daily. But for now, I’m saving it for my next special occasion!
