"Ciao Amore"

I'm back at the beautiful Saint Barbara Mission, In Santa Barbara! This place is located on Laguna Street, in a historic area covered in agave & palms. The paint is of the prettiest peachy pink, giving off even more romance to an already romantic church. I love an Italian or Spanish inspired look, and for me that requires drama and florals. Salvatore approved, I'm wearing an all black outfit, with soft pink accents. The skirt features flocked velvet roses, a perfect pairing with roses in the hair. I couldn't resist getting fully festive with a lace veil, which you've seen me discuss in the Hearst post.

Style Tip:
Do wear a thick, dramatic, chunky platform for any 1940s romantic look. These are the hardest vintage shoes to come across in my opinion, as they are the most desired, and often very small in size. Try looking to modern brands such as Miss L Fire, for some authentic looking platform heels.
