Review: Lipsy Hi Lo dress via ASOS


I don't get to wear my fancy dresses very often so it was fun to dress up for a friend's wedding last night. A few weeks ago, I was searching high and low for something to wear since all my evening dresses are in the very back of my storage right now. I stumped upon several options and decided to give this dress from Lipsy a try. Based on some of the online reviews, their dresses seem to run smaller. I took a risk and ordered this dress in a size 4 (the smallest size available). Lipsy is a British fashion brand and they carry a decent selection of evening dresses. A size 4 was doable on me but a size 2 would have been perfect. I'm only 5'2 so I was worried this dress would be too long. Thankfully, the hem was not touching the floor. The overall length was perfect for my height when worn with heels. I like the details of this dress as well. It's very different from what I normally wear. I am typically not a fan of baby pink but the color does give this dress a feminine touch. All in all, this dress was perfect for the occasion and I would recommend it. Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.

 

What I am wearing: 
Clutch: Topshop *out of stock* (buy similar here or here)
Earrings: Express *old* (buy similar here or here)

  14. Oo I LOVE that dress on you!! It's a very unique high lo style that I haven't really seen before - almost like the outside layer is peplum style but flowy - if that makes sense hehe. I'm glad you got to dress up for the wedding - I know what you mean about not having many opportunities to wear fancy dresses :) Your clutch also matches the flower bust perfectly! Have a great week!

  15. You look so pretty Sydney! I love the high-low hem and the floral embroidery on the top. This is a great summer wedding look - it's fancy but still lightweight and comfortable enough for the season.
