accordingtoannika 's Thoughts:

I’d love it if you checked out the rest of the photos of this look here!

I got this dress sent to me by Diana Martinez, the extremely talented Mexican designer behind the brand Estela Balan, and I find it absolutely stunning. Just look at the skirt part – the handiwork is so intricate and simply exquisite! This is such a great addition to my wardrobe, which is definitely lacking when it comes to colorful items, and I love the fact that I could wear it out to dinner as well as to a wedding and feel equally appropriate.

You should definitely check out the Estela Balan website: it’s brimful of eye candy, inspiration and unexpected color combinations.

I’ve admired Diana Martinez’ work ever since I first laid eyes on her designs through Barbro Andersen‘s blog – here and here – and I’m thrilled to be lucky enough to have two Estela Balan dresses in my wardrobe now! (Will show you the other one soon.) And like this wasn’t enough, they’re also made especially for me from my measurements, which means they basically fit me better than any dress ever has. I usually can’t wear dresses this tight (except if the fabric is really stretchy), so I was amazed to zip them up and for once not get disappointed with the fit. Quite the luxury, I must say.

Anyway; I hope you like this dress as much as I do! Honestly, I feel like a movie star in it. (Am I allowed to say that, or does it sound terribly conceited? I promise, I mean it in the least conceited way possible!)
