If you’re already spoilt for choice wondering which of these lovely polka dot lace dresses to choose, you’ll be delighted to hear that there is also a Davis blouse, which looks similar to the top half of the Davis Dress. For me, I would choose the Sleeved Davis Dress with the nude lining. Teamed with dark tights and heels it’s an awesome cocktail dress.
