Valentino Inspired Red Lace Dress

Added Mar 29, 2016

Provo, Utah, Uni...






Kicking myself that I didn’t have this dress done in time for Valentine’s day. Oh well, there’s always next year I guess.

This dress was based off this dress from Valentino S/S 2012. (Though let’s be honest, you can’t just recreate something like that.)

The outer bodice is Newlook 6723 with adjustments, underlining is drafted, and the fabric is this venice lace, though that’s definitely not how much I paid for it. haha I originally got it on Etsy but it’s sold out now so found that Aliexpress listing for like 3x the price. Bummer, oh well it’s there if you want it.

    I agree Valentino is Valentino – but you’ve definitely captured the essence of the Valentino inspiration with your dress. If given a choice, I’d pick yours!! It’s beautiful, and it looks fabulous on you. I also love your photos.

      Thanks so much Christie! This is random but SO cool you’re from Ireland, I’ve always wanted to visit there. I’ve heard it’s absolutely beautiful there and judging by your pictures, that is the truth!

      Thank you so much Katya! Goodness I feel that way about your pictures, such a gorgeous place you live. Is Paris where the pictures of your trench coat were taken? It’s so incredibly gorgeous, Europe is so beautiful in general.
