Lady In Red - Lace Detail Skater Dress from Curvissa

Something about this Curvissa dress made me feel like a Disney character the second I put it on, and in my world, that is absolutely a good thing. It might have been the floral print lace around the bust which spoke to my inner Aurora, or perhaps the floatiness of the bottom half of the skater shape. Either way, I adore this dress and was one step away from singing to the squirrels as I walked over the heath wearing it.

Available in a choice of black or maroon, the Lace Detail Skater Dress (£39.99) is available up to a UK size 30. If you're large busted, it is well worth sizing up as whilst the dress does have stretch, overall it isn't generous with the sizing. It has an elasticated waist seam which pulls you in, with the sheer lace giving a high round neck a faux-sweetheart finish. I love the lace sleeves too - you're covered up without being covered up, making this dress the holy grail of office to fun times wardrobe saviours.

One of my favourite things about skater shapes (bar the comfort!) is their adaptability. Switch out the boots for heels and you've got yourself a great dress for cocktails or dinner. Chuck a cardigan and some boots over it, and it's a casual type of nice for a movie date or meeting. The lace detailing on this particular Curvissa style really takes that on board, as this dress jumps from office to bar with one flick of a red lipstick. I'm a big fan of clothes which multitask, and certainly this dress ticks all my boxes.

Until next time,

    1. Isn't it so pretty?!? And it wasn't until I wore it with a non-strapless bra the other night that I noticed the print is in the perfect place to cover the straps - genius! xx
