The Red & White Dress At Museo Del Costume


This is the outfit that I wore to the dinner on the second day in Florence with LuisaViaRoma. It was hosted at the beautiful Museo Del Costume which is a fashion museum, set in the most amazing grounds I have ever seen! You also get a view of Michelangelo’s house from where I was stood as well. It was just stunning there and I am so lucky to have been able to visit it and enjoy its beauty!

For my outfit, I wore a Cross Bust Maxi Dress in Raspberry by Wal G with my Sam Edelman Yelena Gold Heels. I finished the look off with my Lilac Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac, a Gold Cross Necklace from Topshop and some Bracelets from ASOS and Topshop. I actually got this dress a few months ago and this is the first time I have been able to wear it. It’s just never been warm enough, but obviously in Florence, it was the perfect time to wear it! I think it’s beautiful and I love the way it fits, it’s really flattering with the cross over bust and the tie around the waist, it accentuates the figure really well!

Also, you may have noticed that I am doing my text a little differently in my posts now, but everything is still available to buy! Just click the item names in the sentence above and you can shop the pieces. I thought it would be easier to actually link up the names of the clothes I am wearing instead, plus it looks neater. Anyway, what do you think of the dress? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments! It was a pleasure to shoot this outfit in such a pretty location!

    What a stunning maxidress so perfect on you and how the Rebecca Minkhoff gives such fun contrast. I hope you’re having the time of your life for the 1st time in Europe: you totally fit the Italian fashionality in this dress πŸ™‚

    This was the dress I liked the most from the other post!! I hadn’t realized it was sheer, but I still love it as much as I did and it looks amazing on you (plus makes you look really tall!) =D You and your boyfriend look really nice in that picture!

      Thanks Rosie =) It’s only sheer on the outside, it has an underskirt so nothing is seen, otherwise I wouldn’t wear it lol!

    My name is Sydney and I am the founder of Style Solutions NYC . Growing up in the fashion capital New York City, I’ve learned the importance of showing β€œyou” through your personal style. I describe the way I dress as sophisticated, trendy, and practical. I love to spot the latest trends on the runway and wear pieces that transition well from work during the day to a cocktail party at night. I am always looking for shoes that enhance, but don’t overpower, my outfits, particularly since I am petite. At the same time, I am willing to take risks with colors and styles. If a shoe is really outrageous, I am known to style my outfit around the pair of shoes. Sam Edelman shoes are always on trend and have an edge that is unique. They make it easy for my outfits to look trendy and cool while still being true to my style.
