I love how simple but eye catching this dress is with the gorgeous bodycon fit and the midriff/chest mesh detailing. This dress really is an iconic piece, and I love how well it goes with these classic pointed court heels to give it a dressier look 🙂
ELVENA Metal Pointed Court Shoe, Ted Baker – £110
Black Overlay Bandage Dress with Bra Detail, Novo London – £85*
This Bandage Dress from Novo London makes my ultimate LBD for A/W and S/S and it will always come in great for nights out and special occasions/dinners, as it makes for such a versatile piece that will look just as good with platform heels as it does with these classics; pointed court heels from Ted Baker. The dress fabric is very thick, and gives such a flattering fit that really enhances all the right areas to give beautiful shape and definition!! The mid panel comes with cut out detailing to the front and back, with a light mesh insert to add ultimate character to this gorgeous piece, and I find this very tasteful, as it gives you the chance to get away with showing some leg and chest without it appearing over done, with the almost sheer neckline details!!
This dress just skims the top of my knees, and I really this aspect as you can tailor it around different occasions and events and style it up differently for each one. Definitely a keeper, I will always have a place in my wardrobe for this little number and feel it will not let me down in a time of crisis. I always enjoy collecting black dresses as they can be used time and time again, and I find them so much easier to style as they always look great with neutral or bold heels. These pointed court heels by Ted Baker have to be the best investment piece I have bought yet!! They are super comfortable and very classy, I like how I could get away with wearing these during the day and night, so they make a great all rounder and the leather feels ever so soft, whilst the overall quality really is dreamy and very unexpected for the low(ish) price. I just find these so easy to walk in its unbelievable!! I actually just ordered another pair in classic nude pink, and feel these will come in great for many future occasions.
I went with a classic red lip using the shade “Annabella” from the new Nars Audacious Lipstick Collection, and just love how it pops against the dress and wanted to keep everything really simple on the day for my dinner date later that evening, and couldn’t wait to wear this dress out on the night!! 🙂
