Sometimes you just have to dress for the occasion and today’s frock comes straight at you, literally right between the eyes, from Vegas baby.
I had a preconception about what Las Vegas would be and I don’t think I hit far from the mark so today’s choice was perfect. I have a real weakness for white dresses. In the same way blondes can make black look glamorous, I love contrasting white with my darker skin and hair, so come summer in the season of white gaining ‘cool’ status again, I was looking forward to finding something that would be wearable for me.
Lace back dress – Zara £35.99
I’m also a firm believer in choosing one focal point if you’re going to bare some skin. Since body-con is no longer a taboo, in recent years I’ve tended to bare my legs with short dresses in looser styles, but my favourite part of my body, the part that never lets me down come extra pounds or not, is my back. So I totally fell in love with the sweeter-than-sweet crochet back to this otherwise rather racy dress.
You know what they say, ‘What happens in Vegas…‘ and I think this is exactly the kind of dress to sum that phrase up. It took me from dinner to bar to the roulette tables and beyond…
Find it in Zara for £35.00. I teamed it with metallic accessories, sky-high heels and modern jewellery, (the earrings were a £3 bargain from Miss Selfridge,) and of course a touch of neon on my nails. Nothing else would do in Las Vegas.
Have a great weekend readers!
