Encased in Lace

‘A Woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving it’s purpose without obstructing the view’ Sophia Loren .

It’s not often that I feel supremely elegant, but this dress definitely nudged me towards feeling like a 50’s film star.

Thinking about it, the Disney Princess vibe was probably down to a factor of different elements. Now, where do I start?? The colour… so perfect for understated chic. The length…. yes, just yes, elegant and swishy. The lace details….. so Self-Portrait-esque (but at a fraction of the price). I have to say I’m totally in love!!


This dress oozes glamour and is a great look for any spring/summer events you may have coming up. I can really picture it in the Ascot enclosures teamed with a fabulous fascinator, or if you have a friend’s wedding coming up this dress would be a beautiful choice to keep things elegant and covered up.

It’s the kind of dress which I knew deserved a special outing as soon as I clapped eyes on it. It just so happened the lovely people at Cari’s Closet sent me this beauty in the nick of time for a special dinner I had planned with my boyfriend. I honestly felt so graceful, I had people asking me where the dress was from as I twirled my way through the restaurant. The length is so demure, it’s hard not to get noticed these days with a longer hemline (it must be quite rare).


Here, I paired it with barely-there nude heels but the beauty of this dress is that you can easily pair it with nude, black or white. This dress actually comes in 7 colours including this cream option – other colours are linked below.

This Easter you can bag yourself this beauty with a whopping 25% off!! Just type ‘EGG’ into the discount code box (I’m eyeing up the lilac version as I type) and they’re so clever, they deliver worldwide!!

Now, I’m off to book Ascot/Henley Regatta tickets so I can show this dress off a little more!!!!

Hope you have a fabulous Easter Weekend!!
