Now, I know what you might be thinking…’whoa, she’s wearing a floral print dress’. That’s right, I pretty much never wear floral prints. Not because I don’t like them, but because a lot of floral pieces out there can be too girly, too over-the-top, and very tacky. There’s only a handful of designers/fashion houses out there that can get florals right; one of them is of course, Valentino.
There’s always something very romantic and whimsical in Valentino’s floral pieces; like they’re out of a fairy tale. Take the dress that I’m wearing in this post for example. The floral pattern is definitely bold, but the muted tones give it a dark, Victorian romance vibe which you know I have a weakness for; and the bell sleeves too, of course.
The best part is that this dress is perfect all year long. You can wear it in the spring and summer with lace-up sandals or in the fall and winter with a fur stole or coat and boots; as I did here. It is a romance of all seasons…
