It’s been a long time since I’ve really loved something. I don’t know what it is but the past few months, I haven’t really seen anything that has gotten me super excited. Do you know what I’m talking about? Everything that’s out there just seems either over saturated by every blogger or it’s the same thing over and over. Maybe it’s just me but this little lace dress and this pink circle bag finally got me excited.
This is one of those dresses that just makes you feel good. The fit, cut, lace, color – everything is just right. What a perfect dress to wear to a spring/summer wedding, date night or for Valentine’s Day. I love the neckline so much and think it’s very flattering. You do have to wear a strapless bra with it and I’m wearing this convertible strapless bra HERE.
Sizing runs true to size for Asos petites however keep in mind that this is European sizing so it tends to be cut much smaller than US stores like Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, or Loft. I’m wearing 00 petite and it fits me PERFECTLY with no alterations. I love how fitted and tailored the cut is and thrilled it’s not skin tight.
If you love the dress but need to cover up your arms or tone down the lace, add a chambray shirt or a cardigan. I think this would look adorable in the spring with a denim jacket too. It comes in petite sizes HERE (inventory changes daily and small sizes keep popping back up) and regular sizes HERE (on major sale). I love it and would highly recommend!
Now let’s talk about this gorgeous Mansur Gavriel round leather circle bag. I’ve had my eye on this beauty for so long and finally decided to treat myself. These bags usually sell out right away so I wasn’t going to chance it this time. I adore the circular style – reminiscent of retro hat boxes. I can’t stand how cute it is! It’s been awhile since I splurged on a designer bag and this one is just perfect for me. 🙂
This size is very small and measures 8 x 8.5 x 2.5. It fits your essentials (phone, small wallet, lipstick etc.). It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap that you can wear as a cross body style for a more casual look. The leather is soft and supple (made in Italy) and the interior is lined in suede with one pocket. The only drawback I see is the color is so light that I’m afraid denim will bleed on it. I’ll have to be extra careful when wearing it with dark jeans.
I found several retailers that carry this exact pink color HERE, HERE and HERE. If pink isn’t your thing, it comes in black, white, red and brown. If you’re in the market to splurge, I would definitely recommend this bag!
