Cute, sexy and feminine are just a few of the adjectives I use to describe this backless Zara Dress. It was a steal at just £15 and so far, it has been the perfect summer dress! It is so easy to slip into and the bright printed pattern is flattering on most skin tones, especially my dark skin. I could not resist popping it into my suitcase for my trip to London and it was great for taking “outfit of the day” photos against Shoreditch’s bright graffiti lined alleyways!
I would have ordinarily paired this dress with some simple Rayban shades, but I forgot to bring my contact lenses so my Prada Baroque prescription glasses had to do haha! I paired the dress with my nude flats from Primark, a vintage gold watch from portobello market and gold drop earrings from River Island. My bag was long forgotten on a table somewhere as I ran to take these pictures!
Although I had been itching to wear this dress in Dubai, it was Ramadan when I bought it in the Zara sale so the short length and backless design meant it was inappropriate to wear it in town before I left. However, now that Ramadan is over, the dress is perfect for a casual lunch with the girls or a visit to the various beach bars around the city. It is still way too hot for full length maxi dresses!
