Dress Erdem (old), bag Dolce and Gabbana, shoes Chanel, coat Burberry
Spring is my favourite time of the year and last week when we had the beautiful weather just made me so happy. I live for blossom and spring dresses. The minute it starts getting warmer I reach for lighter fabrics like lace and broderie anglaise and try to spend as much time as I can outside.
My wardrobe staple not only in the Spring but all year round really is Little White Dress. I couldn’t tell you how many I own in various fabrics and options but they are so great on so many levels. With LWD you can easily dress it up or down and they are suitable for any occasion (except for wedding!). In the coming weeks I will share with you many looks and ways how to style LWD. Here’s a casual one from last year.
I believe that unlike Little Black Dress that can look a bit harsh on certain skin types and heavy for some occasions, the Little White Dress suit anyone and really goes anywhere any time.
This little number is from Erdem and it was such a lucky purchase. I bought it for about 80% off the price in the sales last summer. It was the last one they had and I thought it looked a bit small at first, but it fitted perfectly and it’s such a nice dress to have in your wardrobe. I love the fact that it’s got a little sleeve and it’s not too short. The fabric is gorgeous and the bow is a nice little touch. It would look nice to style all monochrome with black and white accessories but as you may know I love to add a little pink to my outfits, this time opting for my Dolce and Gabbana Sicily bag that has become one of my favourite bags and I’m actually thinking about getting it in another colour as well. It’s such a nice shape and I love handbags with a top handle. But more about that another time..
In a typical English fashion I added my Burberry trench coat to add an extra layer because if you live in the UK you know a) the weather can change at any minute and b) even on the hottest of days the evenings tend to cool down and it’s good to be prepared.
I wore this outfit to my belated birthday dinner at 5 Hertford Street in Mayfair. It’s a member’s club only and I was invited by a friend who is a member. The food was delicious and atmosphere nice but you are not allowed to take pictures so unfortunately I can’t share with you any. It’s probably the first time I had nearly a month of celebrations because my birthday was close to the Easter and many people were away so we just celebrated at different times. It was lovely and I am very grateful I have some amazing people in my life.
Do you like white dresses? What’s your favourite way to style them?
Have a stylish day.
