The Debutante Dress



You're looking at a Personal Shopping Best here.

So there I was, procrastinating during work, perusing the "new in" section on ASOS (world class procrastination material by the way) and I spotted a dress. It was the perfect colour, length, shape and the catwalk preview seemed to hint at the fact that it both fitted and moved extremely well. It was ordered on the spot - along with the black version.

I got it yesterday and I literally/actually squealed. I love the fabric, the colour and the overall fit. The midi length is balanced by quite a boobilicious neckline, making it a great evening/weekend/wedding number.

It seems to have sold out in the pink - and the stock of black is looking low - but whenever an item sells out, ASOS eventually replenish so if you do like the look of it, just keep checking. I think I am going to check everyday on the off chance that they bring out more colours...a super light yellow would be greatly appreciated! :)

Dress: ASOS - Link!
Sandals: Zara (would obviously look better with heels....but who wears heels to the beach?!)
Sunglasses: Celine
Nails: Essie Topless & Barefoot - OBSESSED! I am OBSESSED with this polish. The perfect sand-nude.


I wore it today during a trip to the Fairmont hotel on the Palm.




This hotel is a bit of a gem and the Seagrill shisha/drinks terrace is my new home (case in point: I have been twice in 2 days!). I like finding calm, non-pretentious little lounges like this - a place to admire the view, relax and pretend that you are on holiday...if only for a few hours :)

See you tomorrow!

  19. Usually I look at the links for your clothes and I think to myself, "oo, pricey, better not." Not this time! You look so beautiful and comfortable in this dress I was willing to pay well over the price it's listed at. Too bad they ran out of my size >.< Hoping they restock?

  25. I love the Fairmont! I stayed there at the end of last year. The breakfast brunch that they have on a Saturday is delish.. and they bring food to your table too which is a bonus if you're feeling lazy! Also love the dress, it's a great shape.
