Everyday red lace dress...

When I decide I like something, I fully commit to the theme. Whether it is stripey tops (14 at the last count) or owl themed pieces (far too many to count!) it is clear to see that I am a bit of a hoarder. Little red dresses are another weakness of mine and I bought this gorgeous red lace dress from ASOS last November. It has become a firm favourite in my wardrobe, despite only featuring on the blog once before now. It is one of those outfits that looks nice in person but is impossible to photograph.  Luckily Mark did a good job with these photos and hopefully you can see why I love it so much.  The dress itself is made of a stretchy crochet/lace which I really like, it makes it a bit more wearable and it is ridiculously comfy too! I'm not usually a fan of sleeves but these are pretty flattering, especially with the sweetheart style neckline. Usually cheaper dresses skimp on the details but this one is fully lined which is another plus. New Look is a brand I always forget to look at but they do have some really cute summer things in, I think I am going to have to take another look... 

Dress:  New Look, belt: New Look (came with dress), tights: Tesco, shoes: Clarks
A slightly better look at that lace and my gorgeous new pastel nail varnish. My nail varnish collection is ever growing, especially with my recent conversion to Essie, but there will always be a place for Nails Inc polishes- probably the first 'brand' I remember spending my pennies on. This is Hallam Street, a limited edition colour in association with 'emerging British designer David Longshaw' and is one of the nicest colours I have seen in a long time, definitely one to get your paws on if you can! 


I really need to start wearing a different pair of shoes but these loafers are just so darned comfy! I am seriously tempted by this patent oxblood coloured pair too, aren't they gorgeous?! Although I'm wearing them here, I have managed to wean myself off my black opaques and have been wearing this with my nude tights. At least the dress is long enough to get away with bare legs! ;)

It fits you just perfectly and red is certainly your colour! I'm a denim/graphic tee hoarder. ;)

Lovely dress Maria. Red is definitely your colour. In the last year I've noticed I've been on a bit of a blue and white polka dot kick but my main hoard is probably stripey tops. I think I own around 10 variations. Oh and cardigans. So many colourful cardigans! At least 14!

I'm a terrible dress hoarder, I really need to cut down on my collection. This dress looks gorgeous on you, it's such a beautiful colour xo

This is so lovely - it reminds me of the Margot dress by Erdem (S/S 2011, I think) which I wanted so badly - looks great on you :) x

Printed dresses- I'm a sucker for a quirky print. And also cardigans, it would seem.
