My Dress Addiction: Dress #5: Baby Pink Lace FIRST OUTDOOR PHOTOSHOOT!

Tuesday, 9 July 2013

This post is part of an ongoing series of my addiction to dresses and insight into my endless collection. Read the first post here.

Hello everyone!

Again, apologies for the very late post - in Great Britain this week we've had absolutely glorious weather, so I've been pretty busy with going out and trying to make the most of it!

Fear not, though - whilst I was out, I discovered a very nice secluded field, and thought 'wouldn't this be the perfect place to take outfit photos for my blog' and here we are! I'm still a little shy and reluctant about taking pictures in public places, which is mainly why you see photos of me in my bedroom, haha. So until I am comfortable enough with posing in front of complete strangers, I thought this place would be ideal..

Today's latest frock is this pretty little pink lace dress from a shop called Hype in my home-town Southport. I'm not sure if they have these shops anywhere else in the country (I'm sure they do) but I popped in there a few months ago, had a look at the sale rack, and found this little beauty. It was the first thing I had bought from there actually, and I'm always a little bit hesitant about getting things from places I've never shopped at before - you don't know what kind of quality you're going to get! But it's safe to say, I was very pleased. This one was reduced to £12 from £24, and I'd wanted a cute pink lace dress for ages - this ticks all the boxes!

My Dress Rating:

Super pretty dress, I'm generally very happy with it - it's perfect for Spring or Summer because of it's light colour and floaty, light material, and looks great on tanned skin! The only bad thing I'd say about it is it doesn't have a zip, so can be a bit tricky to put on, and it's a little see through. Make sure you're wearing white underwear!

What do you guys think of lace dresses? Do you own one, what colour? Hope you all liked the photos and the dress - it was fun taking them outside, despite the sun making me squint haha!

Also - do any of you have tips for taking great pictures outside, like whether to face away from the sun or not? I'm very much a newbie to it all so I'm clueless, any help would be appreciated!

Have a wonderful week everybody. x
