I’m heading out to dinner with my husband and thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this Manning Cartell midi dress. It’s a nice balmy summer evening in Melbourne and its refreshing to wear a vibrant citrus colour teamed with Nars Luxembourg lippy (my new favorite shade) for extra pop.




I’m not usually a fan of strapless dresses. I’ve always thought they never give enough lift to the bust region (or maybe its because I have never found that perfect uplifting strapless bra). Nonetheless I went against all my reservations when stumbling across this dress. The bust area was like amour, so I felt completely supported~no jiggling at all.

The colour blocking trend is not the easiest look to pull off unless you are of model heights & body. For all of us normal people, it can shorten or cut you off if your not clever about the silhouette you choose. This dress works because its simple classic pencil shape. And no accessories, just a statement lip – less is more.
