My wardrobe is slowly evolving into a sea of bright white lace and eyelet. What can I say? I know what I like.
I stumbled upon this dress while searching for some work-appropriate dresses to add to my wardrobe. It caught my eye instantly; one look at the feminine fabric and eyelet detailing and I knew I had found my new summer love.
The cut of this dress is certainly conservative enough for work, and I definitely intend on wearing it there. This is one of those pieces that I love so much that I’ll wear it just about anywhere.
Notes on fit
I’ve ordered some different dresses from ASOS before, and usually have a difficult time finding the right fit. I have a booty, that’s no secret, and a lot of their fitted dresses are a no-go for me because I can’t get them over my hips. The only styles that I’ve had success with are A-line and swing style dresses, that skim the hip/thigh area, and are not snug in the bum region. I’m wearing this dress in a Petite 2. In most US sizes, I wear a petite 0. When I order from ASOS, even in US sizes, I usually need to go up at least one size. I tried this dress in both the Petite 0 and the Petite 2, and the Petite 2 was more comfortable overall. The 0 was a little bit tighter in the rib area, and felt tighter all around in the chest and arms.
