It seems that I can't get enough of Oasis midi dresses at the moment! This black one is slightly plainer than this jazzy printed one but has been a key part of my wardrobe recently. I was looking for a casual LBD that I could replace this ASOS number with and picked this one up when it finally went into the sale. I really like the simplicity of the black against my pasty pale skin and red lipstick, it looks striking without requiring much effort (always a win in my book!) ;) Confidence is a funny thing and although mine comes and goes in waves, I think you can see how happy I look here. I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone a lot recently and it has definitely made me braver, here's hoping that continues! 

Dress: Oasis, shoes: Marks and Spencer outlet
I always feel most like myself when I am wearing red lipstick and MAC Lady Danger is my favourite at the moment. It is definitely not for the faint-hearted but it matches my shoes so well that I couldn't resist, haha! The neckline on this was pretty revealing so I dug out my bandeau top again. I would have preferred a lace trimmed cami but haven't been able to find any pretty ones, does anyone have any recommendations? 

These orange-y red suede shoes were a bargain from when we visited the M&S outlet at Gloucester Quays back in April and I really love them. Block heeled shoes are my favourite and the studded heel sets them apart from the other pairs in my wardrobe. I think this is supposed to hit just below the knee but thanks to my less than lanky legs, it is nearly a maxi on me. I suppose it just means that I will be cosier when I start layering it up for Autumn!

Any ideas on where I can find a pretty lace cami?

I love this midi, I have a printed one and they are SO comfy. The red suede shoes work perfectly with it! :)

I've struggled to find pretty camis on the high street lately. I saw loads in Spain but that doesn't help much! xx

Love a bright shoe bringing the best out of a simple dress. Looking fabulous and I'm so happy to hear you felt as good as you looked. Check out M&S for lace camisoles, also they do awesome microfibre slips which has one side with lace edging and one side plain, you can wear them either way.

I feel the same way with red lipstick! That or a deep, dark plum. If I don't have it on I feel like a huge part of my outfit is missing. And I always love and feel so inspired when I hear other women talk about coming out of their comfort zones. Once you do it and it's done it seems like such an easy obvious thing, but you have to appreciate those first scary steps. You and your dress looks fab :)

That's a winner, it looks lovely against your pale skin.

Amazing dress. Oasis is one of my new go-to's for fashion. They just have some great things. And I love those shoes. Red and black is a great combination.
