WhatLauraWore: Turquoise Darling

Regular readers of my blog will know that I’ve lusted after the Short Beaded Prom Dress from Simply Be for months now.  I lusted after it in my How to Dress for Ladies Day at the Races post, I hauled in my most recent Mini Clothing Haul and now, I’ve got it on!

When you’re looking for an occasion dress but you don’t want to go for a full length gown, then this dress is a great option.  It comes to just above the knee, is true to size and is available in coral and black too but I chose the turquoise as I think it looks great on all hair colours, especially blondes and it is the ultimate shade for summer, particularly against tanned skin.  The intricate beading and embroidery sparkles on the bust and shoulders of the dress and looks stunning as it catches the light.  The dress is fully lined so there is no need to worry about it being see through and the light fabric on top swishes about as I walk, it’s perfect.  Oh and whilst I like to get my arms out, there’s also a matching beaded shrug available in case you’d rather not show them off and also a full length dress if you’d prefer not to get your legs out.
