[ a day of Italian Vogue ]

Today’s post is a product of just that – a day of looking through Italian Vogue magazines my parents brought back from their last trip to Europe. I’ve been meaning to put this extravagant monstrosity of a dress to use ever since my impulsive purchase a few years ago. Well I guess that the purchase wasn’t entirely impulsive considering that I was quite aware of the dress’s impracticality and flamboyance. I knew that it was bound to be one of those eternally-neglected-items in my closet, but to me it was still interesting and unique enough to outweigh the gloom of the inevitable. I did use it for this shoot after all, and when I look at today’s pictures I begin to fall in love with it all over again. It’s my kind of monstrosity :).

By the way, we shot these picture my living-room floor.

What I’m wearing:

  • Necklace by “Mawi”
  • Dress by “Jenne Maac”
  • Heels “Laundry by Shelli Segal”
  • Ring by “Swarovski”
  • Purse by “Chloe”

    1. Thank you dear Robin. I had this picture in my head of how I wanted it to look and I started carrying all this stuff to the living-room, lol like a madwoman. I arranged it all around me and thankfully the pics turned out as I had hoped.

      Love Lida

  1. i love this look because it totally set the atmosphere; from my point of view, its mix of darkness and glamour. and you hold the class exactly right, and the dress totally set the mood, the whole lacy part all the way down to the statement necklace. this is so Vogue worthy (:

    1. Thank you :). I was hoping for the effect that you are describing, so it's nice to hear that it did come across. Good luck in the giveaway Sabrina :).
