leather lusciousness

$253, asos
Skimpy and leather are two words that I don't usually like together--except in this case. In fact, I have a dress that's very similar to this one in white, which I wore to a wedding last year in Palm Beach. (You can see me in it here.) There's no doubt this is va va voom sexy and definitely more appropriate for the minimally-endowed, but the fullness of the skirt keeps it tasteful. Come colder weather, I also like the idea of wearing a black turtleneck underneath or a cropped sweater over it. But for now, I'd pull it off like this...


1. Asos leather dress, $253, asos.com

3. Burberry Prorsum clutch, $1595, netaporter.com

I am normally a US 4 in dresses but always size up to a US6 (UK10) for items from Topshop, Asos, Miss Selfridge, Oasis (basically any of the UK high street brands). Hope that helps..

I wonder how minimally endowed you have to be for this dress -- is a B cup too large?

Asos generally runs true to size for me. (I do size up usually for Topshop pants though). Also, Asos is free shipping / free returns, so no stress on that front!
