Ladylike in Florence…

Drew and I had the most amazing opportunity to travel to Florence for an event that Luisaviaroma hosts twice a year, Firenze4ever. Basically LVR invites bloggers, models, photographers, artists, musicians and tastemakers from all over the world to come and style looks from the upcoming seasons in their gorgeous boutique located in the heart of Florence. Along with styling looks, they host the most beautiful dinners each night and we got to stay in the most breathtaking hotel, Villa Cora (if you remember from my instagrams). It has always been a dream of mine to go to this event, and it was an even better experience than I could have imagined! Drew and I have both fallen in love with beautiful Florence.

Today I’m so excited to share with you my first look from my stylelab with Luisaviaroma. They typically provide a photographer but since Drew was with me and he shoots my looks almost every day we decided to have him photograph me wearing each look (I never feel comfortable playing ‘model’ in front of anyone but Drew lol). Right as we were leaving the boutique to start shooting, it started raining and I was so worried we weren’t going to get good shots. By some miracle it stopped for the entire time we were shooting (minus the last look but it turned out cute with an umbrella. Stay tuned for that).

Happy Thursday, thanks for stopping by!

  2. I absolutely love this dress! The color is perfection and the length is perfect! I am so glad that you guys had so much fun, and I am 100% with you on only being completely comfortable modeling for the camera when my husband is taking the pictures. :)

  3. I normally like your choices but I just don’t like this dress. It appears matronly, I remember you sharing it on IG, I thought maybe it was because it needed to be altered. There is something odd about the neckline, too high and bulky. I loved your lace on lace look though that you wore, now THAT was ladylike.

  4. Sorry but this dress though very beautiful is too big and ill-fitting on you. It’s great with the nude pumps though! It would have looked great with a lot of others too.

  5. Sounds amazing! I’ve seen photos of the dinner before on other blogger accounts and it looks absolutely spectacular! I hope to attend one day as well! Now onto your look – the color of your dress is beautiful and your lipstick matches perfectly!! Can’t wait to see more looks! xx yael

  6. OMG! Are you pregnant again?? Maybe it’s just the dress – – I agree with others, it is not flattering on you. I do love a red dress though.

  7. That dress is to die for and so smart you paired it with that top great idea it takes it to another level, and love the bag genious darling!

  8. Are you using some sort of sole protector on the bottom of your shoes? Both these and the pink Dolce Gabbana ones have a strange effect at the bottom. Just wondering!
