This time last year

This time last year I have debuted my lovely Valentino dress here. I remember this day clearly, prancing around in Spring sun. A year later I am still in love with it as much as when I first tried it on. It’s a shame I do not have enough fancy occasions to wear it to!

I have however made the most of these blue sandals from Dune. I saw that they extended Hydro line with iridescent pink and gold versions… Very tempting!

Outfit: Valentino Lace

the_coup_valentino_lace_outfit_look_1Finally, here is the outfit that I have promised to show you last week. I wore this look to my mother’s 60th birthday celebration. It was a very special night, so there was a demand for a very special dress. I chose to wear Valentino ribbed lace skirt dress.

A bit of a risqué choice, you would say – a skirt with no lining, but thank god for cleverly positioned panels!

I love it’s bouncy a-line skirt with scalloped hem. The lace itself is absolutely exquisite! I will definitely be wearing this dress for many years from now.

As I have mentioned dress code for the night was ‘cobalt blue’, so I chose complementing accessories. My lovely blue heels are from Dune. They are so comfy, I danced all night! Skinnydip London clutch surely got a lot of attention from everyone that evening.

Now I need another event I can wear this dress to again! P.S. I can never resist doing signature ‘Coup’ jump :)
