Little white dress for formal occasions

This is my second "little white dress". This one can be worn for more formal occasions. As yesterday's, for example - we were invited for a formal dinner at the Russian embassy. So I combined the dress with tights and high-heeled shoes. The shoes are very elegant and I like them but the heels are kind of too high, so I wear them only if the distance I have to cover is to the car and back.

I bought this dress (Warehouse) three years ago. Lace has not been yet that much "in" at the time, I bought it just because I liked it.

Sometimes I wear the dress in more casual way, with skinnies or black pants, like on this three-years old photo from London.

Sharing the look with Patti's Visible Monday  link-up party.

It is monsoon now here in Nepal. It rains every day, sometimes heavy, sometimes non-stop for the whole day and night. And then the roads look like this.

And then among this wetness and greyness you see a bright spot - a woman in a beautiful sari with a colourful umbrella in her hands.

Have a nice day!


  1. I can understand why you bought this dress Olga, it is adorable! And it is so versatile. You look fabulous in both styles. How funny I lately found a similar white dress with lace but sleeveless. I will show it soon.
    Incredible what the rain does in your city, and life goes on anyway.

  2. White lace is always pretty and yours is that. So versatile, the different ways you have worn it which both look great. Oh my that's a lot of water.

  3. You look very elegant in your white dress! I hope you had a good time at the affair at the embassy. The woman with the umbrella is very beautiful. I always love seeing your pictures of different styles of dress, hair, and jewelry. I'm not sure i could survive monsoon season though!!

  4. You look gorgeous in your lace LWD, Olga! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  5. This dress is exquisite and so versatile. You've completely changed the look in the two pictures. And I'm sure you'll come up with more ways to wear it.
    The weather is horrible! I love the sound of rain, but this is much too much. I hope it ends soon. What a mess. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great day.

  6. I love the look you shared of the lace dress with pants.

    Wow! I can't believe the photos of all that water everywhere. We have a monsoon season here as well, but it's NOTHING like that!

  7. The dress is gorgeous! You look so feminine in this outfit. The heels are something :) I'm not sure I could wear such high hills anymore...
    What a weather you're experiencing... so much rain and water... Not my favorite type of weather. We will have a rain season in December and January.
    You too have a wonderful week!

  8. hi, You have given me a great idea that I can do with my lace skirt. hmmmmm.

  9. Olga, I love how you structured your outfit on black and white lace contrast. Absolutely beautiful and classy! THe pictures of the flood look scary. Remind me of storm Sandy that we lived through:-(
