BARIKA? No, don’t worry it’s not a new trend, just the name of my Acne dress. On Saturday evening, I went to a beautiful wedding in Geneva, a true fairytale wedding. If you follow me on Instragram @soraybakhtiar, you must know what I’m talking about. We had a lovely time and surprisingly, we ate really well (you know how it is at weddings usually…). Having said that, did you notice that blue seems to be a recurrent pattern for me at weddings?


I purchased this ACNE Barika dress back in April (sold out everywhere now unfortunately), three months before the wedding. When I saw it at Liberty’s, I knew it would be the perfect dress for a summer wedding. Initially, I spotted it it in white, I loved it but there’s only one woman who can be in white that day and it’s not you – it’s the BRIDE! Damn… So I went for the blue one. And you all know me by now, royal blue is my favorite color!

I paired it with a J.Crew necklace that I purchased two years ago in New York, and timeless Jimmy Choo gladiator sandals. I’ll always remember the day I purchased them, it was three years ago when I went to Barcelona with my girlfriends. Good times…
