Wearing // Asos dress
Vince Camuto metallic pumps, love these too
Kate Spade bag, similar

Beauty // Lips - Lancome "Corail in Love"
Essie "Urban Jungle" nail polish



These pictures are kind of a fail which really saddens me. Not only is the lighting super shadowy, but there was a giant windstorm Sunday afternoon and that's never good for an outfit. However, I absolutely love this dress so I hope you can overlook the bad lighting and hair swirls. I copied Laura once again and made my very first Asos purchase (see it on her here and here). I'm always hesitant to order online from a brand I've never had experience with before, but I figured with free returns that it would be worth a potential hassle. I ordered a size 6, my normal dress size, and it fits like a glove. The shape is so flattering because it skims the body, meaning it enhances the good parts and conceals the not so good. The weight of the fabric is substantial which it makes it feel much more expensive than it actually was. Hubby and I laughed that I could wear it to a wedding, a funeral, a job interview, and out to dinner. How's that for versatility! It feels grown-up, and not at all like most of the younger looking dresses in my closet. I love it so much that I'm going to order it in another color, probably white. And next time, I'll do it justice by getting better photos :)
Happy Wednesday!

  1. I hate it when you have high hopes for pictures and they just don't turn out as planned. I think these are great though! I love a good black dress. The mint purse is the perfect accessory.

  14. You never know with online shopping - I hate to do it without the comfort of free shipping and returns! So glad the dress worked out perfectly though, and I'm sure you will get the photos you were hoping for next time.
