White Dreams

Hello my friends,

I hope you all had an amazing New Year’s Eve! It’s fresh start and it’s up to you what you’ll make out of it. So, I’d say, make 2016 a great year! That’s also why I want to make the first post of this year a super good one. 🙂 Today, I want to show you the final part of my project with piqyourdress. Click here to read the previous posts Mix and Match – Feel like a Princess and The little Black Dresses. This time, it’s all about amazing white dresses – I call them White Dreams.

Some of you might not know the label piqyourdress yet. If that’s the case, this has to be changed immediately! Piqyourdress is a Swiss brand based in Zurich which works with a special system. You choose a top, a skirt and – if you like – a belt and there you have your perfect dress. Of course you can also wear the pieces separately and match them with some jeans or a T-Shirt. Whatever you’re up to, I promise you it will look great.

In this post, I want to show you two of my favorite combinations with white piqyourdress pieces. As in one of my previous posts, I shot them in a great restaurant called the Rare Street Coffee in Rapperswil, Switzerland. They have such great stuff and amazing interior like old cars, motorcycles and even boats. For more information about this great place click here.

But let’s go back to my outfits. In my first look I was wearing a floor-length ivory skirt which I absolutely loved! Even though it was very long if felt so light. The best thing about it were definitively the hidden pockets on its sides. I decided to match it with a white top made out of lace and a nude crystal belt.

Well, I just love lace! That’s why I chose to wear a total lace look as my final outfit of the piqyourdress project. It was perfect and I kind of felt like a fairy. 😉 I matched a long-sleeved top with a skirt which only reached the ankles. What I really liked about this skirt was this play with transparency. You know, it’s actually really simple but it makes the whole outfit just more interesting if one part of the skin is covered completely the other part not. To give this look a special finish I added a black crystal belt. I loved its edgy touch but how it was still very glamorous. Unfortunately, the lace top and the skirt will first be available in spring. I felt really honored to wear those pieces already now. They’re just awesome. So make sure to safe your dreamy lace pieces as soon as they are released.

What I love about those two looks is how they are absolutely timeless. I mean, you can wear them for a party – a great alternative to the classic black dress. You can also wear a white piqyourdress combination on your big day. Nobody else will have the same wedding dress because you mix and match it how you like it. So, don’t you think this idea is amazing? Be sure to check out their website piqyourdress.com. 

I wish you all a wonderful rest of your day my friends. Smile, be happy and don’t forget to make this year a great one! 🙂

Much love, Carmen
