What I Wore: Navy Blue Lipsy Lace Bust Detail Dress
I bought this beautiful navy blue Lipsy London dress for a completely different function about a year ago. It didn’t suit the occasion at the time and I have been dying to wear it. The day after a recent wedding in Ireland was the perfect occasion!
I fell in love with the intricate lace detail across the shoulders and bust when I first saw this dress. I knew I had to buy it. It was $145. It was part of the ‘Michelle Keegan Loves Lipsy‘ line. I bought this in February 2015 but didn’t wear it until over a year later.
This is a very fitted dress which I found really flattering when wearing it. As it is quite fitted, I found that I had to wear spanx to give me a better shape.
I wore a pair of gorgeous blue heels from Betts Shoes. I picked these up in Melbourne in the DFO’s. They have beautiful gold metal along the heel which I really love. There is also a fish scale pattern over the shoe but it is really subtle.
I didn’t bring much jewelry with me on my trip to Ireland so I wore my pandora bracelet but it wouldn’t have been something I would have chosen if I was home in Ireland. Last resorts and all that. I struggle any time I return to Ireland with how little I can pack. Etihad, who I have flown with the previous 3 times, have changed their baggage allowance from 32kg to 23kgs. This massively impacted my choice of wardrobe the last time I was home.
