A Dress For All Seasons: Asos Curve Cream Lace Midi Dress

Everyone has certain key pieces in the wardrobe that they can't live without. Those versatile items that can be styled a million different ways and seem to come back into fashion season after season. For me, one of those is a white or cream lace dress. I used to have a gorgeous smock style cream lace dress from Monsoon, which sadly gave up the ghost last summer. So when I saw this one from Asos Curve, and on sale too, I decided it was time to replace my poor dress.


Turquoise Cardi - Marks and Spencer (old)
Brown Leather Boots - Evans
Brown Braided Belt - very old

The dress is sleeveless, with a deep V neckline. Fully lined, it comes over the knee. Asos had already sold out of my usual size 22, so I order a 20 and was a little worried it wouldn't fit. This is slightly snug across the bust but not in an uncomfortable way and in fact I think the 22 might have been a little big so I think if you are on the lower end of your size you might want to size down. It's a cotton blend so it's nice and cool, but can be worn with layers for cooler weather.



I took my new dress on its maiden voyage to Brighton. It was a gorgeous day beside the seaside, so I was glad to have opted for a cardi instead of a coat. However, I was still in boots which I was thankful for as it's not that warm yet. Plus a love that 70s vibe of a lace dress with brown leather boots. I also added one of my favourite chunky leather woven belts which I think gives the dress more definition and creates that illusion of a waist while emphasizing the bust. I marched around Brighton all day in this outfit and was totally comfortable and it felt like a great transitional style - I wasn't at all cold when the temperature dropped later in the day but during the sunny peak of the afternoon I felt all summery. I think Asos still have a few in stock so if you are looking for a versatile, cross seasonal piece this is a good shout.

  1. Is this the same dress as Leah featured on her blog a few weeks ago? Love how you've style it with the popping blue - I really want is but think it will come up too big!

    1. It is the very same one! Just love it. May have to try another way of styling next week. I would say it does come up roomy. Not majorly but it certainly isn't on the small side. Hope you find a good substitute. I reckon white lace dresses will be everywhere this season so should be to hard hon :)
