This tulip-shaped lace dress from Zara was a gift from T's papa when he was travelling recently.  It is funny how the same dress can look quite different on 2 different people plus some simple black accessories.

The dress & high bun made me look like a seriously giant cupcake... so why not pose like one, too?

Thank you T for letting me play dress ups in your new dress!

Here's the back of the dress, just to show you the demure V - not too deep, but not too high either!
And it's dressed down (again) with a simple black long-line cardigan and some ankle boots.  The cardigan also takes away from the boxy neckline of the dress, so if you're worried about looking like you have swimmer's shoulders (as I was lamenting to S) this would be a good solution.

By the way, our style idol Princess Kate has the black version of this dress... which we have decided makes us super stylish by proxy.  Can't wait to ditch the casual-wear and dress it up for a proper occasion - more photos guaranteed!!

  1. I love this kind of post, you should do them more often! Both the outfits are absolutely gorgeous... though of course, being such a girlie girl, I'm a little bit partial to S's more retro-styled option ;) Now if only a Zara would open up in Perth so I can snap this dress up for myself! xx

  2. you looks amazing ladies !!!

  3. Lovely post idea! I have this dress in black - Kate Middleton wore it in December so it flew off the shelves! xx
