Summer Romance – Cold Shoulder Ruffle Gown

, 47 Comments

 

“Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.” — Betsey Johnson


Trending Champagne Glory

Summer time is here!   Well, it was here for a few days and we embraced the warm weather with dresses sans coats.  However, it took a slight detour but will be back soon!  I’m madly excited for more sunny days and summer peekaboo outfits!

Inspired by the gorgeous champagne coloured gowns at this year’s Cannes Film Festival I have created a beautiful Champagne June theme. After three weeks of exploring champagne coloured outfits it’s sadly time to wave good bye to my June collection. It has been so much fun exploring different shades of gold and pink, writing about my most favourite Cuvée Rose Lauren-Perrier champagne and ultimately push myself out of my black pencil dress comfort zone.

Today I’m playing with a stunning Cami Strap Maxi Dress with a Ruffle Layered Pleated Skirt and having a cheeky glass of champers.

I absolutely adore the ruffle neckline and the incredible amount of pleats of this dress.  Wearing it made me feel like a James Bond princess for a day.

This ruffle layered dress is quite a stunner!  A perfect piece for wedding guest dressing, for an evening date, and for warm weather holiday getaways! With gold or nude sandals this dress is a perfect companion for both day and night time events with a graceful balance of sophistication and allure.  Rock the ruffle trend at your next special event in this pretty-in-pink gown made of pleated tiers that move with every step you take.

Lightweight pleated organza. Lined top. V-neck. Layered design. What’s not to love? True decadence is a trend-led label that takes it’s influences straight from the catwalk.

 

 

Thank you so much for all your amazing comments on my champagne theme. I’ve read all of them and it makes me a very happy blogger seeing that you not only scroll through my photos but also read the narratives. It takes a lot of hard work to put all of it together and it makes me very appreciated seeing already some of you returning to read my blog posts. Fashion has always been my passion and I’m so happy I can share my journey with all of you.

THANK YOU!
