Hello from beautiful Monaco! This is my second visit to Monaco, and I’ve managed fall a touch deeper in love with it this time around. I’ll write a blog on my tips about where to go and where to shoot shortly, but for now I just want to show off this dress I picked up last week.
So if you haven’t already met, I’m going to introduce you guys to one of my favourite labels at the moment – Mestiza New York. The label was started by two amazing women, Alessandra and Louisa. You can read their full story here. When I read their story, it really struck a chord with me because I’m just a regular girl who wants to buy special dresses for special occasions without going too far over the budget! But I still want it to showcase the designer’s look and feel. I fell in love with their style and design. It is simple, beautiful and timeless.
I have a few weddings coming up over the European summer and let me tell you, the worst thing that can happen to a girl is to turn up to a party with the same dress as someone else! Been there done that! It happened to me once at a wedding in Italy. Let’s just say it was awkward, but I made it work and I complimented the other girl on how amazing she looked. Deep down, I was sweating on the inside!! Scott was like, “Why are you looking so distressed?!” So I told myself that for any special events/occasions, I will spend time searching for something that is not a headliner of the current season – something a little boutique and limited.
So if you have a special occasion to go to or just want something a little more special, please check out Mestiza. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
I’m wearing the Carmen Diamond Gown (US$795). It’s in a size 8 here and it was the perfect fit.
Thank you so much for reading always! Sending you guys lots of love!
