StyleInspiration - GIAMBATTISTA VALLI Spring 2013

Yesterday was a deliciously relaxing day. Woke up early, exercised, baked more cookies (this might be a problem) and caught up on the day's Couture Spring 2013 shows in Paris. Instantly, I was drawn to Valli's darkness and femininity juxtaposition. So off I went into my sartorial dreams and came up with this lovely outfit inspired by look 10 in Giambattista Valli's Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection.

Inspiration: Giambattista Valli Spring 2013
Haute Couture - Look 10

Runway to Reality Look...

Asos Lace Back Cutout Dress, BaubleBar Poppy Coffee Bib
& Christian Louboutin Patent Rolando Pumps

ASOS Lace Dress with cutout back $55.41 (image via ASOS)

I love how the ASOS lace print closely resembles Valli's design and the darker lip in the ASOS picture further emphasizes a darker femininity. By adding the Coffee Poppy BaubleBar necklace we counter the dark & serious tone with a lighter and more delicate design. (A lesser priced alternative is BaubleBar's Rose Dew Drop necklace which still gives you that hint of rose for a lot less at $32). Hope you get to channel your haute couture self!
