My little fashion story from London created with Victoria is coming to a perfect end for now with a final look featuring this Victorian inspired dress by Zimmermann.

The summer is still in full swing so this perfect white lace piece is quite spot on for the hot summer nights when paired with some pumps or sandals, and I am already envisioning wearing it with some over the knee boots when the cooler seasons approach, paired with a leather jacket.

Interesting fact about this dress is – it caught my attention from the moment I watched Beyonce’s “Formation” video for the first time, thinking it was a custom piece made for her not even being aware that it was by Zimmermann. My discovery happened upon spotting this dress in real life and having it look particularly familiar.  So, if you are a huge fan of Queen Bey like me and would love to rock this lace number by Zimmermann featured in her video then you now know where to find it.

Lace always has a special place in my heart. It is one of my favorite fabrics and is just so fun to style. You can go soft and romantic, you can go sultry or even grunge if you wish. It can be worn both day and night time accordingly. Lace is the perfect base. You can always select a piece made of lace and then create a whole look playing off its softness and details or spicing things up as well by building up a look heading more into an evening setting.

Most of my lace pieces are in black or in white but I am always on the hunt for some variety in beige, blush or any pastel color palette. So when I ran into a perfect pastel lace top by Self Portrait in the most stunning periwinkle shade, I didn’t think twice. 

The top is quite feminine and dressy so you can’t go wrong pairing it with a pencil or a ruffly skirt. I decided to add to it a little everyday touch and balance the dressy part by pairing it with culottes and black accessories. The look can also be paired with a blazer for a perfect work/business appropriate attire or go without if you are like me and heading for dinner and drinks after a busy day of meetings.

Today I am sharing with you the second look from my London trip and the fruit of my collaboration with the London-based photographer Victoria Metaxas featuring this Materialize dress by Australian designer Maticevski.

I feel like this dress is a perfect representation of “a modern muse” or even “urban princess” if you like. The airiness and the volume of the ruffles give an elegant, dressy and flowy look to the piece, but the structure and the texture of the mesh fabric perfectly encapsulates the dress in a modern “urban time and life pace”.  

I also do notice how fashion and garments resonate with architecture and even sculpture, and I can’t help but to admire that since I am immensely fascinated by and draw a constant inspiration from architecture. 

Playing off the elegance of the look and keeping it within a soft pastel palette, I styled the dress with a few pieces which are showstoppers on their own – one of the most coveted shoes of the season by Dior and my beloved, timeless and beautiful Lady Dior.

I am really into wearing bandana as a scarf this summer for a casual, funky touch, tied around my hair as a headband or even on a handbag strap. It can both add a pop of color or serve its purpose as an actual piece of clothing.

As an example, I love the off the shoulder trend that is currently being embraced by a lot of designers and shoppers. It works perfectly in hot summer temperatures, but not everybody is comfortable with a “not enough left to the imagination look”,  so adding a scarf or bandana to your neck can balance an open shoulder if desired.

As usual Reformation is my favorite retail destination for summer dresses. They always stock a great variety of styles in many prints and fabrics. The only comment I have is that if you like a certain print and style a lot then I would advise you not to think about it too long – it will probably be gone pretty soon or you will be added to a forever-long waiting list. So don’t think twice- if you love it get it and enjoy this hot summer wherever you are!
