Although the quote in the title isn't from moi but Carine Roitfeld, it's true that if I don't know what to wear on a night out I grab a black lace dress. Ever stylish, ever on trend, ever sexy. Black lace is a wardrobe staple and I'm always happy to add another piece to my collection. All of my other lacey dresses are fitted numbers so I was really happy to see a skater style that didn't have a ruched waistband as I've been after one for ages and never spotted a good 'un - sometimes you just want a flared skirt so you don't have to wear shapewear pants you know girls?
This bad boy is by Evans but is from one of the kings of department stores, House of Fraser who have recently really expanded their plus size ranges and lordy do they have some gorgeous stuff in at the moment! Seriously you guys need to check it out, especially if you're in the market for a new fancy frock! But back to the dress I'm wearing here... it's lined with a lovely stretchy soft nude fabric with an overlay of black lace. Now the overlay has no stretch so you need to order your correct size here, I went for the 22-24 and it's a poifect fit. The sleeves don't have the nude lining which makes it a little cooler helping to avoid the dance floor sweats and the little peter pan collar is the perfect accent adding a touch of cute to this sexy style. One of the best parts? It's only £30 in the sale at the moment! Go go go!
