A Nude and Grey Crochet Maxi Dress for a Night at The Casino

Last night I went to the casino. Well, it was actually the Town Hall in the Dales village of Grassington for a fundraising event which had been, in part, organised by one of my friends for her son's school PTA. It was a great evening. The Prosecco flowed and we enjoyed Black Jack and Roulette and chatted and laughed throughout the evening.

The dress code was "Dress to Impress" so I wore a grey and nude lace crochet maxi dress with my beloved glittery Jimmy Choos.  I love the simple shape of the dress with its soft romantic lace detail and flattering draping. The colours are delicate and easy to wear and I thoroughly enjoyed wearing it.

I feel the dress has a slight vintage look and feel so I accessorised with pretty pearl jewellery

It wasn't a late late night, but I had to be up at 5.30 this morning to take my daughter to school because she's going away on a trip and the combination of the fizz and the early start means I look rather less glamorous and party ready today.

Casino night

  6. Dear Lizzy, your blog starts to be something very special for me, it is a true benchmark of elegance, balance, design, beauty and style. This dress, this look and this outfit are simply wonderful. I love the color, pure softness and delicacy. I love the design of the top of the dress, with delicate filigrees. I love the volume and the flight of the bottom part of the skirt. I love your jewelry, your purse, your shoes, the color of your nails ... Dear Lizzy, a great post, delicious and tender work of art.
