This outfit is way overdue due to the shorter daylight, but I finally managed to take a few pictures of this gorgeous dress during one of my lunch breaks. Last year, the lovely folk at Navabi got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review something from their site. I of course jumped at the chance and proceeded to find difficulty narrowing my lust list down. In the end I went for this stunning lace, fitted mini dress.
Cardigan: H&M (Burgundy currently out of stock)
Leggings: South (via Very)^
Scarf: Dorothy Perkins^
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins^
I wore this for an average day at the office, but as you can see, it's a hot little number and would not look out of place at a party or fancy dinner - just swap the leggings for tights, the flats for some cute heels, and leave the cardigan at home for and sexy, stylish evening outfit. And that's what I love about this dress, it can be worn for most occasions. I love garments which are versatile; I don't like buying too many items that are only wearable in certain circumstances.
As you know, I'm not a fan of black, on black, on black, on black, so if I do find a dress I love, it has to have a little extra to it; that's why I love the lace detail on the dress, particularly on the neckline as it breaks the block of black up nicely while still staying true to style. I try to avoid dresses with a high neck, as for me, it makes me look even more dinky than I already am, but again, the lace without the underlay, makes it work. The length is perfect for my height and the fit is truly great. I often find fitted dresses are really ill-fitting if you have a few lumps and bumps, but the cut is just right and accommodates my tummy and butt with ease.
Throwing this one in as although it's a candid pic, it has me smiling which I know is rare on my blog :)
'til next time crazy cats!
Love and hugs,
