Outfit: Gladiator

gladiator sandals striped dress summer outfit look

As you know I'm currently running this Fashion Made in Luxembourg project where I'm introducing a new Luxembourgish designer each month. Last month I've been showing you some gorgeous pieces from Manalena and on Thursday the designer Maddalena had organized and event with a fellow designer, namely Ha Dang from the label Redwood. I had already seen Ha Dang's creations at a local market but I thought it would be a nice occasion to catch up with both designers and discuss further collaborations.
The event took place at a hair salon at the Grund, a district of Luxembourg city. And as you can see this part of the city is really picturesque with many old streets and buildings, so my sister and I made use of the setting to take some outfit pictures. I've been wearing my latest crush: the Mango gladiator sandals, which are super comfy as I already said, but the straps keep slipping down a lot. To hold them in place for a few hours I applied some greasy body cream to my legs and tied the laces super tight. Still I had to redo them like 3 times on each leg.
As for the event it was really nice seeing the designers and some fellow bloggers. I went home with two gorgeous creations from the label Redwood, which I can't wait to show you in a few weeks, together with an interview with the lovely Ha Dang.

  2. You look great, Carmen! And you are so patient with these sandals, I don't think I could wear them if I needed to tie them often..

    SIMPLY MAGNIFIQUE

  3. Those gladiators are stunning, shame about them not staying in place. I've never owned a pair but always feared something like that would happen to me

  6. I love stripes, this dress suits you soo well. I am not a fan of gladiator, but I really think you hate them or you love them.

  7. Ich bin ganz verliebt in dieses Kleid. Es steht dir so toll und ist perfekt für den Sommer!
    Auch die Schuhe sehen klasse aus, leider komme ich mit den Riemchen nie zurecht.
