OOTD // 70s Keyhole Dress

I took a risk with this dress and man, did it pay off! When I saw it on ASOS, I wasn't sure about the silhouette. It was listed as a babydoll dress so I thought it may look a little shapeless on me and I was worried about the high collar, but I loved the print, the sleeve:skirt proportions and, of course, that cute keyhole detail at the front. In the end, I took a chance and bought it, fully expecting to return it. How wrong I was!

Dress- ASOS Curve
Bag- H Butler c/o House of Fraser
Leggings- Evans
Boots- Missguided

First impressions? I wasn't keen on the material. It's a kind of crepe fabric which didn't feel particularly pleasing to the touch but, once I put it on, it felt really lightweight, breathable and created a lovely flow to the skirt and sleeves. However, there was one very big problem. That little keyhole? It might as well be a slit down to my tummy button for how discreet it is! Boobs ahoy! Wanna see? Here you go

Thankfully, it was nothing that a basic black tee couldn't solve so I popped one underneath and hey presto! A super cute dress with a keyhole cut out that kinda works. I love everything about it- the subtle pleats at the front, the seams under the bust, the high collar that actually works really well. When I wear it, I feel like a 1970s librarian and I'm really digging that aesthetic.

Of course I teamed it with the boots and bag that I mentioned in this post because a) I was packing light so no room for multiple accessories and b) they really top off that 70s vibe. I kind of feel this outfit needs one of those floppy hats. Does it need a hat? Would I look stupid in a hat? How do hats even stay on your head?

  6. Looking fab - I love the seventies vibe and a hat would totally work. Whether or not it stays on or not is something I can't answer though... (I haven't worked that one out for myself yet...)
