Asos Oxblood Midi Dress

Tuesday, 6 August 2013 / , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I saw this dress on Asos last year, and immediately wanted to dip my toes into the vintage waters,with this dress giving a whole 40's vibe to the length ! The moment I tried it on, the first words coming out of my daughter' mouth were- MOM are u going to school ? And there I stood with the most Pokerish sort of expression on my face, with my soul cursing me for yet again giving into an impulsive buy !  Since Midi length was the only thing that looked current(at least on the runaway) I decided to hide it in the darkest corner of my closet, waiting for the right Inspiration or mood - to say it appropriately, and bring it out !
The first time I wore it was here- and it looked pretty decent with the layers, and very formal too ! The look was really growing on me, and I was able to demystify the midi trend at least . I decided to redo the whole look and bring out this Orphan dress(instead of getting rid of it ) and break certain myths we have for this kind of length !
I have broken down the cheat codes for you all too !!
  • Tuck that top In (incase of a skirt): Its more flattering when eyes dig your waistline till the hemline ! I chose the dress in two-tone contrast color, to get the same effect ! 
  • Layering is a good idea- The midi length looks neat when layered. Just make sure the layer(cotton/denim jackets for hotter months) hits above the waistline or just an inch or two above the hemline(trench/long coats for fall), either of which, really  depends on what season you are in .
  • Length: Thin or petite woman look great in lengths which hit just half an inch above the knee. If you are tall n petite, you can pull the longer ones too. The same holds good for curvy or pear shape women also !
Have you tried this trend too ? How do you carry off your midi's ? Comment Comment !!

  2. Adore the colour of this dress! Its gorgeous! And the yellow looks real good with it.
    I am very petite! So I usually go for knee length dresses or ankle length dresses. Anything in between and I end up looking like a kid :( Only exception is my Zara leopard print dress in grey which hits me below the knee and still manages to make me look elegant :)

  16. Hi sweets! I saw your comment...I had a look again on the Scottish Soaps website & they do have delivery prices for lots of different places (marked as 'The rest of the world') so I would think they would ship to you in India. But, I think I would ask them first to make sure. I asked them on twitter, so when they get back to me, I'll let you know doll :)) xx

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, it didn't take them long to get back to me, which was nice. They said that they do ship to India. They said the postage is added at the checkout or you can check out the rates beforehand on this page:

    I hope this will help you doll, I think you'd enjoy the products :) Have a sweet day xxx
