Pretty Party Dresses: Lace and Green

11 June 2013

I’ve been hit with a “going to weddings fever” and thus gravitating towards finding bright and attractive dresses that will be suitable for an afternoon and an evening event.

The kind team at Beauties Closet Korean Fashion sent over a few samples of my choosing.

Beauties Closet Coral Lace Dress

A-line skirts are up on the rise in the new season.

I chose this Lady Kelly coloured lace dress, because I adored the romantic texture and the sweet A-line skirt. It is such a flattering, simple and pretty dress. The fabric is a soft, stretchy lace, with a jersey lining (very comfortable!).

There are no buttons or zips, you just pull it over your head like a jersey t-shirt and it all springs back into place, skimming over your waist and hips perfectly.

Beauties Closet Drape Green Dress

Dresses with some structure and sculptural aspects have hit the catwalks this season. Especially dresses and skirts with a “wrap” or “a fold over”.

This Lausanne Chiffon Dress is quite a nice and simple wrap dress, which looks great for an evening event. It’s made from a light polyester fabric, so it drapes nicely, looks feminine and it’s not too heavy (perfect for warm weather).

The folds are a bit random, and sometimes I wished the folds would stay in place… but it just means that the dress is more drapey and loose, than the traditional “tightly wrapped” wrap dress. It also means you can eat a lot during dinner and it covers up your tummy hehe.

It also comes in a beige and black.

This dress is possibly priced a little higher than usual dresses of this make and fabric, but hey, it’s genuinely made, branded and styled in Korea, and it’s in a unique style that I haven’t come across before.

Beauties Closet are based in Singapore and local shipping costs are nice and low, starting from $2.24. But for international customers (like in Australia), it’s about $20, depending on the weight and the items will take about 2 weeks to arrive. So honestly, this is a fab place to shop if you’re a die hard fan of Korean fashion and style!

Happy shopping!
