I was absolutely thrilled when my gorgeous dress from Rare London* arrived just in time for my trip to Rome! I am such a huge fan of Rare, who's pieces regularly feature in a number of celebrities wardrobes (including the always fabulous Millie Mackintosh)
From the moment I unpacked the dress I knew it was special! The quality and composition of the fabric is outstanding. The lace detailing is designed in such a clever way to accentuate your waist, in an almost optical illusion-esque manner. The beautiful exterior creates a showstopping dress on it's own...but it is what lies beneath that marks Rare way ahead of it's competitors. Underneath the top of the dress lies some extremely clever boning, which in an a corset fashion accentuates your silhouette even more. This is a technique mostly used by extremely high end designers (with price tags with a LOT more zeros!)
I am so impressed with the stunning design of this dress and undeniable high quality. Which is so different to anything else currently available. The price of £50 is an absolute steal for a dress so beautifully crafted!
I wore this dress to a suitably special occasion, dinner at a wonderful rooftop restaurant in Rome. I have never received so many compliments on a dress before! As well as thanking Rare for this beautiful dress...I would also like to thank them for the copious complimentary glasses of champagne, wine and desserts we received as a result of this showstopping dress haha!
Mandatory balcony photos before the evening began!
Rome from the rooftops!
A very famous fountain...which I can not remember the name of!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend,
