ASOS little red dress at the Boston Public Library

Off-Shoulder Midi Dress c/o ASOS (3 colors, wearing a US 4/UK6 with DIY alterations)
Valentino rockstud heels (4 colors, wearing sz 35), DIY clutch, H&M stole (similar), vintage ring

Today’s post is my entry in a fun little contest, for which I was asked to style an Oscars-themed outfit using an ASOS brand dress. I’m happy that a large international retailer like ASOS doesn’t forget about its shorter customers–I appreciate their petite-friendly options and am excited to be part of this feature.

When I think of celebrities at the Oscars, I picture gorgeous, elaborate gowns, and dramatic silhouettes. As most of us won’t be sashaying down the red carpet anytime soon, I wanted to find a dress suitable for the life of an everyday woman, but still nothing short of stunning for a special occasion. I ended up choosing a fitted little red dress that enhances even negligible curves, and styled it with a mix of accessories ranging from DIY to Valentino. This look was inspired by old Hollywood glamour and is true to my classics-loving style.

In addition to an outfit, I also wanted to share with you guys one of the most historical buildings in this city that I love. These photos were taken in the older half of the Boston Public Library, which was built in the 1800s. This room above has two levels of tall bookshelves, complete with little spiral staircases and ladders - it felt like I had strolled right into Belle's library!

Another favorite room of mine is the recently-restored reading room, where locals have been studying under the majestic arched ceilings (shown in 1st photo) for over a hundred years. Oak bookcases filled with rare collections line all of the reading room walls:

I didn't have the right bag for this ensemble, so made one to keep with the bold red and soft taupe color scheme:asos red dress boston public library
For anyone who's interested, I'll be doing a review on the sizing and fit for this dress in a later post. I tried my luck outside ASOS' petites section, and was pleased to find that this dress in regular sizing ran small. I ended up sizing up to a US 4 (for reference, I typically take XXS/00 or H&M sz 2) and performing some at-home alterations, but in hindsight, a US 2 may work better for someone my size if you don't mind a snug fit (which this dress is intended to be). Both sizes need a hem job if you're on the shorter side.

Shooting and posing, to make the perfect shots! So amazing!

  53. What a fun opportunity to get all dolled up for a glamorous event! After every awards show, I always look through all of the pictures of the actresses and vicariously choose the dress I would've worn if I were to have attended. (Fave this year so far is Kate Hudson's Golden Globes dress.) And out of all of the entries for ASOS, I absolutely love your look the best. You've altered that dress to fit you perfectly and accessorized it in ways I never would have even considered (AND custom-made a clutch to finish the outfit no less!). Also, great setting and photography. If you don't win, I demand a re-count! ;)

    question about this dress, I'm debating getting it... is it thick and heavy, sucks you in like Herve or more like BEBE quality?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Melanie - it is not thick and heavy like Herve (or what I imagine their dresses to be), hence a big difference in price point. If you go with your usual size, it will be very tight and I noticed that did do some shaping and pushed my bust up to create more cleavage and overall helped with defining a more hourglass figure. The material is not thick though and be sure to wear skin-colored undies.

    1. Due to how fitted it is I would only reserve it for special or evening occasions like weddings, cocktail parties etc., but by changing up the shoes and accessories (I did safe red and neutral here, but you can go with a crisp red and black theme...or fun red and prints/patterns) will put a different spin on the same dress.

  135. I suspect, as with that Anne Taylor blouse I liked (better on you than on me), you make this dress look better! Great photos and the library setting is genius... now you just need to actually make a movie. Good luck.

  137. Wow!! what a stunning dress! Love the library too!! I wish our library looked like that, except it looks more like a nursing home- not a very good background for blog pictures :)
    Hope you win the contest!

  140. Sorry... what about reading books instead staying in the middle of the library with a red dress?
    Really stupid.

  141. If you take a few minutes to learn about Jean I think you will find that she was motivated by a sincere appreciation of the beauty of the library when she chose it as a backdrop for these photos. It's a magnificent building and one of Bostons's treasures. How wonderful that such grand architecture surrounds the public collections and is available for all of us to enjoy whether we are taking out a book or viewing these beautiful photos.

  145. Hi Jean, loving the outfit, especially those Valentino shoes! Do you think that those shoes would also work with a red full-length gown, similar to the colour of the dress you're wearing?

  152. Stunning! I dare to say you are the most elegant and classy girl among all the contestants. Your blog is extremely inspiring for people who are TROP petite, like me. I'm about 5" and, as a lawyer, I always struggle to find the accurate pieces for my wardrobe.

    Congratulations from Colombia. I don't even know if I was allowed for voting; however I did it.
