Drama in Venice


As promised, more colours this week!! How about starting the week with this stunning editorial full of drama, colour & a dream location - Venice?

Even though it's lovely & sunny outside, I still wouldn't mind swapping it for a day in Venice!!

Some equally high glam dresses & heels to match:

{Left to Right: Matthew Williamson dress, Jimmy Choo sandals, Sonia Rykiel dress, Fendi sandals, Vera Wang dress, Jimmy Choo sandals, all from Net-a-porter.com}

(UPDATED: editorial by Dean Isidro)
