Roman Originals – Navy And White Lace Elegance

Hi Everyone
Yay! The sun’s out!! 
I’ve been waiting for some good weather to share this gorgeous dress with you all. Remember I confessed a new love for the Roman original’s brand? If you missed the first post featuring this fabulous brand, you can find that post here

I’m sharing today, this stand out from the crowd Navy and White floral Tapework dress. A classically shaped dress, I love the sleeve length and the slash neckline.
The gorgeous tape work in white really makes the dress a showstopper.

I decided on wearing my hair up with the dress to show off the neckline of the dress and give it a more formal look. It’s really windy so I will need to make some adjustments when I’ve finished these photos! I’m attending a friends 60th birthday across the road from this park here in Twickenham. 

I’ve teamed the dress with a white clutch bag and pearl and silver Jewellery. Navy sandals to complete the look. You don’t need anything powerful worn with this dress. It speaks for itself!.
Roman Originals is a perfect brand to shop for a special occasion outfit, there are lots of statement dresses available and the sizing for most dresses is 10 – 20. The stretch lace outer layer is resting over a soft lining and I love how it’s not at all restricting, it just floats over your skin.

You can see in this close-up the lace pattern and the layered tape work that develops the floral design. 

This park in Twickenham is so beautiful. I love this floral display in the background.It’s right on top of the Thames and  I’ve done a lot of fishing here! Nothing better than a quiet day, challenging the OH to catch the most fish. And I win sometimes!

One of the things that caught my eye about this dress, is that the pattern follows all the way round and not just on the front of the dress. exceptional quality at £65.00

And I love the deep V at the back, giving a nice finishing touch. Let me know what you think of the dress in the comments, I’d love to hear your views.

 Have you shopped at Roman Originals before? There are some bargains to be had on their website with up to 50% off here And some online exclusive designs too.

Fingers crossed that the sun keeps shining!

    I love the dress, very elegant. The deep V at the back is a very nice detail. There's a Roman shop not far from me in Crewe so I'll pop in for a browse!
