Every so often I just want to break the rules when it comes to event dressing. I’m all for beautiful classic pieces, but sometimes a dress just comes along that demands to be worn. This De La Vali dress is just that. The metallic green lame is a match made in heaven for parties. Colour aside, the rest of the dress is tailored for statement-making event wear. The ruching along the sleeves and the peaked shoulder detail, are both standout elements that really elevate this dress, while the classic crossover style tempers the more edgy features, achieving a great balance.
I wanted to keep the colour going so I opted for some bright jewellery by Chaumet. I went for a few matching pieces in the form of the bracelets and necklaces I chose to tie them all together but experimented in the different colours I chose. While the cross features of the rings helped bridge all the pieces together. When working with such a bright colour, I wanted to add pieces that would help accentuate the overall look and feel, but without being too overwhelming, so the fact the necklaces and bracelets are quite delicate helped with the overall balancing act.
