What to wear? Carnival in Venice


I’m off to meet my boy in Venice for carnival in March – hugely exciting – and am wondering what to wear. I don’t really want to wear a full-on costume but stuff with a hint of harlequin that I can still wear whenever. I really like this Harlequin dress by tba.

This 60s mini skirt by Atelier Mayer is another favourite but I’ll never ever fit into a size 6.

Or perhaps I should do as Mia Farrow (pictured here with her then husband Frank Sinatra at Truman Capote’s Black & White ball, 1966) and go for monochrome?

  1. Not sure about the main outfit but these shoes are to die for and very Venetian….

    ….I need you to wear them so I can live my dream shoe life vicariously x

  2. TBA! TBA! TBA! Sorry for the excitement, but that dress is fantastic.

  3. Lovely shoes! I’d probably go for something more 60s though – maybe silver? Like these http://www.etsy.com/listing/51833451/sale-1960s-vintage-silver-mary-jane?ref=sr_gallery_36&ga_search_query=60s%2Bsilver%2Bshoes&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_page=3 What do you think?
