WhatLauraWore: Kick Out Lace Dress

In tonight’s post, I’m wearing the AX Paris Kick Out Lace Dress in black.  It is a fit and flared skater shaped dress that pulls you in under the bust and flares out at the skirt, creating a very girly feel when wearing the dress.  I’d recommend sizing up as the part of the dress that pulls you in under the bust isn’t elasticated at all.  I love the lace detailing at the top of the dress, very feminine, very on trend and very pretty.  I will say one thing about this dress though- it is incredibly short, at least on me.  It is supposed to be 90cm from the shoulder to hem but on my 5ft 5″ frame I found it to be far too short to wear on a normal night out.  I put this on to go out to a Tarts and Vicars Party to celebrate my friend’s 30th birthday and popped on knee length stockings and a garter belt after I’d taken the photos for this post, so the short length of the dress didn’t concern me given the nature of the party.  When I wear this dress again I’ll definitely put some black tights on with it.  AX Paris now do this dress in navy and champagne too which are both equally as gorgeous.
