Wearing: Lover Serpent Lace dress, Tony Bianco heels, Tresor Paris bracelet.
When my friend James asked if I wanted to shoot some photos at The Met yesterday I immediately asked, "but are we allowed to"? It turns out no, we were not. We only managed to take a dozen shots while trying out lighting before we were told to stop. Somehow, the extraordinarily talented James Nord managed to get these while I was casually strolling the European Sculpture & Decorative Arts wing (as one does in red French lace).
I know I have worn this dress a similar way before but I still love it as much as the day I bought it, and despite not being able to get away with wearing on a regular basis I feel that it was the perfect investment piece. I have worn it to events, nights out and a wedding, and it deserves every compliment it receives. I would say it is the boldest and most evocative dress I own, but paired with understated heels and accessories it is my personal favourite too.
