Goodbye Winter, and happy almost Spring :-)
I am such a huge fan of the bohemian-dreamy look that I took a dive into the land of lace, black, white, and gold. For this concept, I spent days perfecting every little detail of the wardrobe. I wanted to convey a free-spirited yet soft and feminine look that resembles almost like a doll. Jane had the excellent idea of shooting in a green house (Volunteer Park) and the garden effect worked very well with the simplicity of my outfit. We had so much fun catching such bright and vibrant colors for Spring!
The winner of this outfit is most definitely my lace kimono. I discovered it in the lingerie section and there is nothing more I love than transparency and lace together! The kimono is so sheer with its lace detail and contains the prettiest floral embroidery. In fact, I am actually learning how to sew embroidery pieces in my design class. ;-) Can you imagine how adorable this kimono would look with just lingerie underneath? Love love love!
I also wanted to highlight this amazing romper that was the foundation of this look. Not only it is flowy and comfortable, the cut-out details are thought-out and appealing to the body. Both the shoulders and lower back are exposed and the waist figure is tightened by a string. Since I did not want to do a full on boudoir shoot with the lace kimono, I paired the rope with an off-shoulder look instead to give a slight peak. :-)
Unfortunately when I tried to look for the romper at Free People online for you, I only found similar rompers and not the exact one. :-(
Stay tuned for an upcoming post on Spring semi-formal dresses. Have a great weekend and hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I did! xoxo
