There is just something about being able to slip into a designer item, so beautifully made with the best quality materials, that just makes a girl feel super special! I had an event to go to recently, and it was formal so I knew I needed to look very polished and put together. I was shopping at Nordstrom and that’s when I spotted this gorgeous RED Valentino dress that I knew would be perfect! What’s even better; it was 40% off!
I wore this stunning lacy embroidered dress to a YSL event. It wasn’t an inexpensive piece, but definitely a great investment because I know I can wear this again and again. It’s so special, but can be appropriate for so many different events just by changing up the accessories. I can get a lot of use out of this dress, and because it was so carefully designed and made, it’ll last a long time.
I decided to style my RED Valentino dress with some nude shoes, which I think complements the nude underlay of the dress. I also play into Valentino’s signature color with my red bag, which is one of my new favorite things! It’s a little mini bag from Onna Ehrlich that reminds me of a classic Chanel bag.
Before styling my hair, I applied the Kerastase L’Incroyable Blowdry and then curled my hair away from my face in small sections to create full curls. To set the curls, I used Garnier Hairspray. For my makeup, I took inspiration from my recent 90’s makeup tutorial up on my YouTube channel. I did add some of Chanel’s new cream to powder eyeshadow in Fantasme (number 81) to my look though. For a gorgeous brown lip, I used Smashbox’s Be Legendary cream lipstick in Coffee Run.I hope you love my Valentino moment as much as I did! It’s fun to play with designer pieces, and work in some accessories to add a personal touch to your look. Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever found an amazing deal on a designer item you love!
