Not all dresses deserve their own blog post but this dress by Red Valentino most certainly does. The embroidery, the colors, the tulle….. there isn’t a single aspect of this dress that isn’t to die for! Scroll through to see this gorgeous work of art from all angles!
This month for our How We Style series we are going to show you 3 ways to style this gorgeous Ulla Johnson Abelia Dress. What’s not to love about this dress? Great color…check…..easy silhouette….check……versatile….check! We could go on and on. With this being a longer style, a lot of people are unsure of how to style it. Check out the pictures below to see 3 unique looks that can be achieved with the Abelia dress.
The first way we styled it was with a pair of white booties (all the rage right now), a cool belt, and some fun earrings. Because this style is very flowy it completely changes the look when you belt it to a more curve showing silhouette. This could be worn during the day and most definitely transition into evening.
Second, because the fabric tends to read dressy, we wanted to show you how to make it more casual for day. We paired it with casual accessories and with a fun high pony tail which instantly makes it look more laid back but clearly still fabulous.
Lastly, we went for a strictly evening look. This dress has a gold thread running through out and I think with the right accessories could even be worn for a cocktail party. We paired it with a glitzy heel, fun small bag and some dressy earrings. A low sleek pony tail adds a touch of sophistication to this look.
We will leave you with a picture of Molly Sims spotted in this dress and she paired it with a Gucci fanny pack. See, the options are endless! 🙂

She always has amazing prints and her pieces are so effortless and easy to wear. Take a peek below at some of the pieces from her fabulous Resort collection that are in store now! Shop all of the looks here!
We absolutely love the Maui Print that is featured in this next outfit. The colors are vibrant and fun and the pattern looks like it was hand drawn on this halter top giving it a whimsical feel. We paired the blouse with a great fitting pair of J Brand skinny jeans. We cuffed the jeans to give it a casual feel and paired it with a pair of Jerome Dreyfuss heels (they are on super sale right now). We finished it off by layering multiple black beaded necklaces.
The next dress could double as a great cover-up on your next vacation. The beautiful floral hand embroidered detailing at the top of the dress give it a real richness! To make this dress more appropriate for cooler weather we styled it with a pair of Rebecca Minkoff suede fringe booties. We added a great cuff by Dannijo and earrings by Kendra Scott.
We love the Maui print so much we had to show you another style that features the gorgeous print. This maxi is what dreams are made of! What isn’t there to love about this dress? We paired it with these super fun and flirty earrings that were made to go with this maxi!
A mosaic is a work of art created by assembling beautiful pieces of brightly colored materials, such as glass, metals or stone, to create an image. Mosaic is an upscale contemporary women’s boutique that draws its inspiration from the fundamental lesson communicated by these pictures made from bits and pieces — that the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. Whether you’re assembling a single outfit or an entire wardrobe, we can help you find just the right pieces and make sure they work together to create the image you want to project. Read more....
