Another day, another lace dress- I already have several lace dresses (including one in white and one in cream) but when I saw this beauty from Monki, I fell in love. I love the high neckline and the longer sleeves are perfect for the colder weather too, especially when paired with my trusty leather jacket...

The collar felt very Victorian but I am sure they would be scandalised by the amount of leg I have on show here! ;) I was going to pair it with black opaques but I think the bare leg is needed to add some contrast to the demure cut, what do you think?
The lace is a gorgeous off-white colour too, I think it is much less harsh a colour than a dazzling white and much more flattering for pale skin tones... Again the sizing on this is a little strange, there is a lot of material in the body but the neck buttons up very tight at the back and I think it would have been claustrophobic if I went down a size- I suppose it leaves me plenty of room for a big dinner now! ;)
My lovely black glittery ankle boots- definitely one of my best buys from Primark!
Outtake of the day: me doing my best Kate Bush impression. She may look a little deranged in the video for 'Wuthering Heights' but her dress is fab- definitely a worthy début! I remember listening to this song when I was younger and throwing myself around the living room, not much has changed!

Do you 'dance' to Kate Bush? How would you 'de-frump' this dress?
