Oasis Sweetheart Neckline Lace Dress £50.00 We love the purple lace overlay on this knee-length bodycon dress! The sweetheart neckline keeps it pretty and ladylike.


Oasis Plain Crepe Wrap Dress £55.00 This modern take on a classic pencil dress is beautiful due to its grecian draped and pleated V neck that falls from the waist down, and the included belt which nips everything in neatly.
