As you may know, I used to work at ASDA and although it has been nearly 3 years since I left, I will always have a soft spot for the brand. When they got in touch to see if I could style an outfit for them, I jumped at the chance, I love their clothes and some of my favourite clothes have been from there. There are some gorgeous dresses on their website and I had been looking at this beautiful green lace dress just the day before but unfortunately it had sold out (sob!) so I went for this cream version instead. However, when it arrived it was a beige colour (or pale gold if you are feeling generous) rather than cream and paired with the longer length, I was a bit unsure about how to wear it. However, paired with this (faux) leather jacket and some 'edgy' lipstick, I felt cool rather than mother of the bride! Mark and I have never gone overboard on celebrating Valentine's Day but I will take any excuse to get all dressed up and go out for a meal! ;)

I look particularly pleased with myself here, I blame this sassy lipstick and nail varnish combo! ;) I find dark lipstick quite tricky to wear but hopefully the light colour of the lace helps to combat my tendency of looking like a vampire playing dress up when I wear it...
I have been looking for hair accessories for a while now and when I spotted this rather amazing hairband in Accessorize, I was thrilled (plus it is now only £3 in the sale!) It jazzed this outfit up nicely and I really like the contrast of the delicate flowers with the make-up and jacket...
My beloved leather jacket is one of the longest serving residents in my wardrobe but it can be a bit fussy for some outfits so I was more than thrilled to welcome this faux leather jacket into my wardrobe. It is super simple but nips you in in all the right places and I have already worn it a number of times since it arrived.
I never used to like clutch bags but I couldn't resist this gorgeous patterned clutch, the cutwork pattern is just so pretty and it matched the lace perfectly! There was also a black version but I can't find it on the website any more so it must have sold out (not surprising as it is only £5 now!)
This skirt is a little bit too long on me, I am forever bewailing my lack of model like legs but paired with these lovely shoes (I love a block heel from ASDA!) I was able to swoosh around quite happily. You know I can't resist a full skirt!
Are you an ASDA fan? How would you style this dress?
P.S. I was sent these items to review but if I didn't love them, I wouldn't feature them!
