I had a rather excellent Style File for you today, but the combination of a virus (thanks to my children), the day job and a shortage of images means I have defaulted to my current summer obsession: a white dress. This week I have worn one three days out of five. Imagine my joy when I spotted this one [above] and feverishly tracked it down…to Asos, where it is sold out. Curses. But then – oh joy – I discovered this from Topshop…
Scallop lace dress, £85, Topshop
It’s The Dream. I could not be more enamoured. (Well, I could, were I the proud possessor of a bit of Chloe.)
Chloe or Toppers, the point remains that the white dress is the easiest go-to for summer ever. (Bar the cleaning factor.) Which is probably why I am having such an issue finding a dress of another hue for my brother’s wedding in two weeks. Eek. (Seriously. All suggestions welcome.)
Further finds (I can hear you thinking, “get to the POINT”): this from Madewell, this from Asos, the Cecily Dress from Wrap (which is an absolute steal, I had to check twice that my eyes weren’t deceiving me, such is the scale of the reduction) and this broderie number from La Redoute.
Here’s some more pale and interesting inspiration. I have never thought about white being tight but this might change my mind.
