My Custom-Made Red Dress

In the beginning of the summer I had the opportunity to create my own custom-made dress from Piol (you can see it here). I had such a great outcome the first time so when I was offered the chance to create another Piol dress for the fall/winter, I jumped at the chance. Well, my positive experience the first time was definitely not a fluke because I absolutely love my newest Piol dress! For those of you who haven’t heard of them, Piol is a website that not only customizes the style and cut of the dress according to your measurements, but they also offer a selection of colors and fabrics specific to your skin-tone and coloring. I knew I wanted a red dress after receiving a lot of positive feedback when I wore this one but I wanted one that would be a little more versatile and work for cooler days. Piol gave me this beautiful red shade once I gave them my skin-tone and coloring information. And I was able to create the dream red dress I had in mind. It was so much fun to see the dress I created come to life and it was even prettier than I expected. Of course I chose a dress with longer sleeves for modesty reasons and I know this will be perfect from a day at work to a night out.

I may have cried afterward (na, I’m exaggerating- I just complained a lot) but you can’t tell in the photos so we’re good. 🙂

    Can I just say how much I love the volume in your hair?! I am so jelly. Love the red dress too. Great for Christmas gatherings and even Valentine’s Day(getting ahead of myself here).
