WVW: Touring Barcelona*

Hola my lovely readers! Yes, it’s me, finally posting after two weeks.

I had an amazing, exciting weekend in Barcelona for the MNG by MANGO for jcpenney photoshoot! I have lots of photos and details to share with you here, and on Kristina’s blog, Pretty Shiny Sparkly.

While Kristina and I coordinate posts, I thought I’d share what I wore when I toured Barcelona with other bloggers on our free day. I tooled around  with some great gals, bloggers you need to get to know. I’ll introduce them all to you in an upcoming post.

I picked this dress up at Zara while in Spain. I love it—you can’t really see the best part of it—the fringe that starts at the shoulders and runs down both sides. When I spotted the fringe, I knew I had to have it! I also bought some beautiful cognac-colored leather boots to wear with it, but since I was touring, I had to stick to my flat boots. A rare occurrence, flats on my feet!

  1. I lovelovelove that dress on you! The colours work so well with your complextion & hair, you look so fab. Funny enough I’m wearing a bit of chevron print in today’s post! Can’t get enough of it. Looking forward to reading about your Barcelona adventures 🙂

  2. “A rare occurrence, flats on my feet!” You’re a woman after my own heart, V! When I wear flats, I get “did you injure yourself?” all day long!

    Love the print on this dress, and I can’t wait to see the new boots. You have the BEST boot collection!

  3. You look so chic & relaxed V, of course you had an amazing time in Spain! I can’t wait to read all about it, (loved all the Instagram images). Adoring the colours in your dress! xx

  4. I’m so glad you’re back and had a great time!! This dress is lovely, and I know the vest was amazing paired over it! I look forward to seeing and hearing more about your trip!

  5. That dress is adorable, and looks SO good on you!! I can see a little bit of the fringe at the bottom – I can only imagine what it looks like! Is that a vest?? I want to see it!! It looks amazing!! So glad to see your back from your fantastic trip. It was fun to follow along with your tweets.

  6. You lucky thing! Barcelona is an amazing city – one of my favourites – and I spend way too much time shopping in Mango when I’m in Spain!! So doubly jealous – look forward to the photos.

  7. Yay for Barcelona! (and for Zara in Spain, it so much better there) I’ve been to Barcelona 3 times, it’s one of my favorite places in Spain, looking forward to reading your Spain diary! x

  8. Oh how I have missed you! I can not wait to see more of Barcelona. What an amazing opportunity for you. I am so proud of you. The dress is fantastic. You have inspired me to pop over to Zara on 59th Street to see what they have in now. Sending you lots of love, Mish xo

  9. Your dress is incredible. Love the colours for autumn. I’ve just arrived via your post on PSS – very excited to get a glimpse of all the goings on.

  14. My dear Vahni I have just arrived myself from a trip to Navarra and Rioja.
    For some reason your blog wont updare when you post. RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
    I am so glad to see how well you look in Spanish soil.
    Much love always, goddesss.

    1. Thanks, love! It was an unforgettable experience, that is for sure! Um, and can we TALK ABOUT THE BLUE PONY HAIR WEDGES AT ANN TAYLOR?! I. Need. Does your store have a 9.5?

  15. At first glance i thought that was a Missoni dress! I love the pattern – i wish we had a Zara in Cleveland but no such luck. I have yet to step foot in one but constantly love what I see on other people!

    I am still so excited for you about Barcelona. What a great experience! So glad you were able to go!
