Burgundy Luxury: Silky wrap dress and velvet strappy Sandals

Radley, necklace, heeled sandals, black clutch, satin dress, burgundy dress, Prada sunglasses


“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” — Yves Saint Laurent

Happy Thursday everyone! Last week, it was scarlet red hues (as seen here), and today, it’s lush burgundy tones.

I’m such a huge fan of burgundy and find that deep crimson reds work very well with my skin tone and my hair colour.  And it’s the perfect pick-me-up colour to combat the rainy British weather.  While I adore pairing deep reds with classic black this time I switched red to more burgundy tones!  Burgundy with more burgundy, with purple, with rosy brown, … all striking color combinations.

This burgundy dress silky wrap is one of my favorite dresses and it’s already beautiful on its own, but adding a statement necklace in the same colour family… it transforms the dress into a luxurious piece. Voila!


Paired with a beautiful Radley bag completes the look.



Dress: GABBIE Burgundy Silky Wrap Over Midi Dress

Shoes: TRUE DECADENCE Velvet Strappy Sandals

Bag: RADLEY Blackheath Across Body Bag

Accessories: PRADA Minimal Baroque Round Sunglasses – Tortoiseshell | LOUBOUTIN Velvet Matte So Tango Lip | LOUBOUTIN Khol Vinyle Luminous Ink Liner | LOUBOUTIN Khol Les Yeux Noirs Amplifying Lacquer Mascara


Hope you enjoy this post and styling.  And as always, thank you so much for reading!
