The Milla gown (€97) is available in both stores now in this beautiful blue-grey shade, and we also have a new beaded capelet in store to match too! 😍 It can be worn like this in the photo, or wear the straps up on your shoulders (great for bra straps!) or alternate between the two for the day! 🙌🏼 We love it accessorised with our beaded belts - but it also works perfectly as is...❤ It's already flying out for #Debs and #bridesmaids - available while stocks last 😊 #folkster
