Dress from my mother's friend's boutique, but similar style here.
Black lace is so dramatic, don't you think? Even more so when shot in the overwhelmingly lavish opulence of my mother's friend's baroque style living room. What really pulls the look together for me though is the belt - it's all in that magnificent gold head of a stag, protruding from thick black leather and surrounded by studs. Gorgeous.
P.S. I write this in between bouts of packing for our next (mini) trip. Join me on Instagram to keep up with the latest!
