Cut It Out

by Jessica Sturdy on December 27, 2013

This week we’ve had a long-sleeved sequin shift dress, a shimmery v-neck fit & flare dress, and now a dress with a bit more edge — a peek-a-boo dress from Allison Collection. This dress is perfect for showing a little bit of skin, but not going overboard like the sea of scantily clad ladies you always see on New Year’s Eve. Admittedly, this dress looks way better sans tights, but it was just too effing cold to try and shoot photos without!

The color of this dress is gorgeous! Also, points for not looking like you are freezing in this pictures, I know how tortuous it is to pretend it’s all nice and warm for outfit pictures in the winter – the worst!

Love this dress, especially the cut outs! I wanted to go sans tights on Christmas because my dress looked better, but it was just way too cold!

I like it with the tights! Blue and black are so nice together. I love the cutouts, perfect way of showing a little skin without going overboard, as you said. So pretty.

Beautiful! I love the colour and how classy the cut outs are, just a peek-a-boo not huge plains of flesh on show! You look amazing.
