THE 'I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR' MOMENT



Navy Lace Dress, c/o Poppy Lux (here) | White Satement Necklace, Next (similar) | Black and White Heels, Topshop (similar)

Following my new social media job which I started in December, I've since been invited to events and dinners where I need to dress formally, and I soon began to realize that I don't actually own sophisticated outfits (apart from boring skirt suits for interviews). I own mostly casual outfits or outfits fit for a night club, which aren't sophisticated at all. So I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone with a navy lace dress from Poppy Lux. In my opinion, lace always adds a bit of sophistication, and the detailing on this dress is so beautiful. Not only are the arms a translucent lace, but the back is also translucent, down to the waist. I think this shows off a little flesh, while still keeping your look covered up and suitable for formal events. For some reason I also associate the colour navy, with dressing up, which is probably why I don't own many navy pieces. But this dress is definitely a welcome addition to formal collection, and at just £27 in the Poppy Lux Sale, i'd be mad not to!
