The Little White Dress


Let’s discuss the very underrated little white dress. There’s no doubt about it, the LWD is the new LBD this season. Coming from someone who’s wardrobe is 90% black, I’m very open to embracing this new look. I think everyone needs a cute LWD, & this one’s it for me. This Forever New lace dress stood out to me as I was searching for my first spring racing outfit, but I predict it to be a summer standout too.

It’s the kind of dress that’s so easy to wear, flattering at the waist and pairs well with any kind of accessory. I’ve mentioned before, I’m really not overly feminine when it comes to fashion, but I thought for Spring racing season, I’d mix it up with this gorgeous crystal fascinator from Lovisa.

And I won’t lie, it feels pretty good to finally inject some colour into my very funeral-esque wardrobe.

    I got a LWD for our engagement party and I love it! This one is gorgeous too, loving the lace detailing.


    • How sweet! I’d definitely opt for a LWD if I ever had an engagement party. SO gorgeous <3 xx

  • Ashley Christabelle

    I love Forever New, they have some of the best dresses in store! Also, gotta say that the dress reminds me a whole lot of Self Portrait. The lace detailing of it is absolutely insane! You look gorgeous too, Angela. x

    • Their S/S collections are so gorgeous!! Omg yes! I thought the exact same thing when I saw the lace detailing & HAD to buy. Aw thank you so much Ashley!! :) xx

  • Your dress is so pretty, I love it! <3

    • Thank you Renee!! Have a lovely weekend :) xx

  • Around Colours

    That dress is gorgeous! I love to wear white, the only problem is that I usually get stains on whatever white piece I’m wearing within 20 minutes after putting it on haha

    Marta –

    • Thank you!! Hahaha you and me both. If I don’t get a stain on this dress, it will literally be a miracle lol! xx

  • This is so pretty. You look like a princess! I love the headpiece. I’ve really become obsessed with wearing white this year x

    • Thank you Lauren!! The fascinator is so pretty for spring races (or headpiece, not sure if the word fascinator is an Australian thing? Haha) & me too!! Just so cute xx

  • This is such a gorgeous dress, and I love the setting/atmosphere of these photos Angela! I’ve actually always preferred little white dresses to black dresses, because I feel like you can wear them more often, whereas black dresses instantly look more appropriate for evening looks. So LWD all the way :D

    • Aw thank you SO much Julia, that’s so sweet of you <3 I agree!! LWD are just so pretty & such a standout :) xx

  • Love the photos! That dress looks amazing on you! White is such a risky colour to wear because knowing me, it’d be stained as soon as I walk out of the house!

    Jessica || Of Purity and Simplicity

    • Thank you so much Jessica!! I KNOW, I’m the same… I honestly wonder how long this dress will stay clean haha! xx

  • Such a gorgeous dress!! the headpiece is stunning!!!!

    • Thank you so much!! Have a lovely weekend xx

  • These photos are amazing! I love the idea of incorporating white into my wardrobe – like you, I own mostly black clothes – but I’m always cautious because it’s not a very practical colour for the klutz that I am who gets things dirty so easily. I do love white though. It’s one of those colours that just looks flattering and elegant. x

    • Aw thank you so much Carissa!! So glad you like them :) me too! I’m the same – SO clumsy I’m always scared of wearing all white. It is so lovely though (so worth the risk? Haha)! xx

  • Beautiful photography and the dress is stunning! I love the detailing and hem work as it really transitions the piece to stand out more! x

    That’s a pretty white dress, i just realized I don’t have an LWD. Will shop the site.

    • Thank you!! I think every girl needs a LWD in their life :) xx

  • Love the dress! I don’t tend to wear white dresses because my legs look too pale in them!

    • Thank you!! Oh don’t worry, mine would too if I didn’t fake tan 24/7 haha! xx
