Ruby red hearts & lace

June 27, 2011











Dress from, Belt from Blanco, Aldo Bag, New Look Shoes


I know this isn’t very dressy, it’s a simple look and I thought “nah, I need to accessorize more” but then that wouldn’t be my style. I’m not so into jewellery or accessories anymore, less just feels better to me and this dress- with it’s little hearts and lacy lining  is very baby doll. Although they’re cute elements, I like that it looks a bit grown up here, I can’t pull of the cutesy girly looks haha.

The lining on this sucks btw, it makes it very hard to wear in Dubai summers but it’s cool if you’re not going to be out doors (smiling and posing for pictures for example!)


I’m having a great week so far with morning swims and regular work outs. Plus, I came home to see this on my wall over the weekend:




To get any form of praise or support from some one who you admire and look up to so much is just crazy. And yes, I’ve saved a screen shot of it because if someone like Fluvia Lacerda thinks I’m cool, well then screw everyone else haha- I’m cool.

Seriously, I can’t even tell you how awesome her words make me feel. It’s just wow!


I wish you awesomeness for the rest of your week! Although things might take time to happen, there’s a lot to be said for patience, hope and persistence. And at the end of the day, you’re better off counting your blessings and wins, and learning from your losses before you move on.


Hugs and lots of Love,






  • You look so good in that dress. :3

    You look lovely! I absolutely love everything about this outfit, including your smile! And how adorable is that bag? I saw the comment from Fluvia and I must admit I was a bit jealous, LOL! But so happy for you, you deserve it, sweetie. You ARE cool and you ARE beautiful. Thanks for being an inspiration and thank you for always having inspiring words and thoughts that you share with us.

    Hey love!! <3

    You look totally adorable here! That bag is so cute 😀 And yesss Fluvia is amazing! Totally <3 her.

    wow how flattering! you do look pretty as a picture in this dress well in everything really! and i have to agree your hair is amazing! x

  • Roseglen

    You look so cute

  • I love this little dress 🙂 You look slimmer here. Have you started the gym already like you said you would in the swimwear post you did? As for Fluvia, she is SUCH a doll! I was gutted I didn´t meet her last summer when she was in Barcelona! It sort of almost happened! You can´t not love her for everything she does and stands for and how beautiful she is, but then you HAVE to love that little bit more for being so grounded and humble! So many people who make it become arrogant and horrible in general, but her success hasn´t affected her in that way, and THAT is a HUGE merit to someone! You deserve the praise! I know I dont always comment, but there are so many things about you that I feel I can relate to, I just don´t say that much about my private life on my blog, because I don´t feel comfortable doing it – as I´ve told you before! Anyway, you keep doing your thing and be happy! 🙂 Remember, we can´t please everybody no matter what we do, so why not just please ones self!? 🙂

    Gorgeous dress! I really love your belt!

  • such a pretty dress… i really like it. how do you think the sizing runs from the wholesale place? i've seen some nice pieces on there, but am a little weary of shopping there!

    and everything fluvia said is right! you are gorgeous, luanne! 🙂

  • boopnut39

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this look!  Of course, I love the dress as the hearts look like polka dots.  You look awesome in red!

  • Always Summer

     What a pretty, summery look!  The white ruffles coming out of the bottom just makes it perfect.

  • You have the best dress wardrobe; every dress you wear and post, I covet!  And those wedges – LOVE, what a great neutral!

  • What A Pretty Face

    I struggle with the whole is less more, or is less just less thing too. Is it too plain or is it meant to be simple la-la-la. But, you look just great here. I love that purse. I didn't have too much luck with Shipping to US is about 45$!

  • samille ganges

    I love this dress!!!!  U look sooo pretty!

  • This doesn't look plain at all!  I love this look – the dress has enough detail to go simple.  

  • I love that dress. You look so pretty.

  • Bia

    You are beautiful in that dress, is an air of freshness and conforto.A sandal is beautiful too. You inspire a lot. Oh, I love Zooey

  • First of all, you look really cute in that pretty dress (and while I was completely disappointed by, this is really a nice dress and good for you that you actually received it). And second of all, Fluvia Lacerda thinks you are cool!!! This is beyond wonderful. I mean, we always knew you had an amazing sense of style, but now even the (my) role models are telling you the same thing and I couldn't agree with her more 🙂 Yay!

  • Monique

    I love this look and you're right about Fluvia. She's an awesome chick and so are you!! Love the quote by Zooey!!!

  • thank you!

    It's so hard to find cute stuff there but I actually sit and check every single page, dedicated bargain shopper hehe but yea it's still a hit or miss with them!

  • I know, she's so awesome and down to earth to make someone like me feel awesome, I'm still in awe of it hehe, Thank you very much for your compliments and the next time I find something great on wholesaledress I'll definitely let you know!

  • Thank you so much Bia!

  • Thank you Aliisa 😀

  • Thank you so much!

  • hehe thank you! I love wedges because they're high but comfortable! I should buy them in all colours!

  • again, I'm so glad you did Natalia! You have an awesome blog <3

  • hahaha I would be mad jealous, actually I'm jealous of anyone who has ever met her… and johnny depp… Anyway, thanks Veronica 🙂

  • thank you! I'm so glad you like it, I was wondering if it would be too girly hehe. Yay!

  • Thank you Taylor, I am a total dress girl! I can't even remember the last time I wore pants hehe. Thanks again 🙂

  • oh wow! that's just crazy, it's more than how much their stuff costs! damn. Maybe aramex's shop and ship would be cheaper? Meh. It's hardwork shopping with them,

  • Thank you so much, I think everyone looks good in red yknow? It's much better than black at least!

  • Thank you so much Jill <3
    and honestly, sizing sucks unless you find something in their plus size range. I measured myself to know exactly which size to get just because I couldn't bear to order another dress that wouldn't fit!

  • Thank you Gazel <3

  • oh Rikke, thank you so much for such kind words, you have me smiling even wider now! Thank you 🙂 

  • Thanks Rose 🙂

  • yes I have! and I'm not checking my weight but clothes are already fitting a little better and I feel awesome! a lot more energy and just healthier heh. Fluvia is the bomb, I can't praise her enough! Thank you so much for the lovely words hun <3
