The LBD gets far too much praise in my book. Sure it’s just about the safest way to ensure that you’ll look sleek, sophisticated and slim, but it’s also predictable beyond belief. Enter the long, white dress. If you have any hint of a tan (via lotion, of course), it’s such a subtle way to highlight your skin and let your face be the focal point. When I saw this Red Valentino maxi number on Net-a-Porter.com, I immediately started envisioning the long tangle of chains I’d throw around my neck and the jeweled sandals that would complement it perfectly. My plans were immediately shattered as soon as I caught a glimpse of the price, but I happily shifted my attention towards Topshop’s similar lace dress.
What’s your take – is this a crave or save situation?
