Ladylike Lace

There is nothing we ladies like more than a flattering fit, but to be honest, it’s a harder thing to find than one might think.






On my small frame, I often find myself being swallowed up by clothes, or garments that have any of the lace, frills or ruffles that I favour so much tend to look frumpy on me.

That never stops me from trying on something when I’m attracted to it on the rack, but I just feel like I haven’t hit pay dirt in a while. Then I found this By Johnny dress. I was originally looking at this little black velvet dress, and I took the white floral one next to it in to the dressing room for fun.

Dress, By Johnny (midi version here), Shoes, Zara (also in black here), Bag, Zara, Earrings, Amber Sceats (similar here and here), Ring, Amber Sceats (similar here)

I have never felt so confident or happy with a dress as soon as I’ve put it on. Apart from the beautiful floral appliqué and the cute gathered hem, it wasn’t too long or too short, and I felt like a million dollars.

When I took it to the register, the girl working told me that she and her friend had both tried the dress on the week before and bought it because they couldn’t believe how flattering it was.

So it’s not just me…
