Move over USA travel pangs and hello Amalfi Coast urges! Seriously how glorious is this editorial? The sumptuous Amalfi coastline subtly used in this backdrop paired with the gorgeous white bespoke resort wear is enough to make anyone crave 'La Dolce Vita.' So much gorgeous lace taking center stage which adds romance to this ever opulent setting. I've been obsessing over Lover's lace serpent dress and this has added even more fuel to my desire, it looks so gorgeous here and in white that I am even tempted to photoshop my face into that image just to satisfy my urges while I await for one in my size to come into stock. I couldn't honestly pick a favorite out of these shots - I really love each and everyone of them so please do not make me choose just one! And who knew posing beside a donkey could be so chic? It must be a model/Amalfi Coast thing because I know somewhere, deep inside my mother's photo albums lies photos of myself next to a donkey during our family vacations to the motherland and I can assure you they are nothing chic. And the fact that I was probably only six years old or something is way beside the point.
For now I will love you and leave you to fantasize your own Italian getaway, I know I will be! And for some wise words, as written in the caption: When in Italy, do as the Italians do and make some white noise in the name of style!
