CLV x Stephanie Danielle: Dresses for Every Destination
If you were to ask us about our dream vacation, two destinations that would top the list are Paris, France, and Portofino, Italy. Both dreamy European cities offer their own unique charm; the colorful cliffs of Portofino and the urban-chic streets of Paris. So as you can guess, we were super excited to style Stephanie Danielle, fashion blogger and creator of The City Blonde, for her recent travels to these gorgeous places!
Whether you are lucky to have your own ticket booked or simply love fashion inspired by beautiful cities, continue scrolling for a look book of Stephanie’s stunning photoshoots. We also pulled a few of our own evening dress picks inspired by Paris and Portofino, so you can embody the European vibes for a destination event…or a local RSVP!
Shop: Mermaid Dress with Plunging Neckline
Shop: Satin Pleated Dress Halter Plunge Dress Flower Print Ballgown Sequin Trumpet Dress Taffeta Trumpet Dress
First up, Portofino. Stephanie popped against the picturesque Italian coastline in a red mermaid dress bearing a flattering plunge neckline and open back. The warm hue complemented the pretty colored buildings lining the village. Follow her lead and capture the essence of Portofino by selecting a style with few or no embellishments, and also doesn’t compete with the shades of the Riviera. Stick to wine, red, gold, or green in sleek fitted silhouettes. Or, if you’re feeling especially fancy (say, for a gala!) slip into a floral ball gown that’s basically its own work of art.
Oh, Paris. For the City of Light, Stephanie wore a pink high low dress adorned with elegant beading. The subtle embellishments against the silky Mikado texture feel tres chic for a picture-perfect day in Paris. (and can we talk about that Eiffel Tower backdrop for a sec?!)
Shop: Mikado Antique Beaded High Low Dress
Shop: Metallic Knit Dress Long Sleeve Dress Tank Plunge Dress Pleated Metallic Dress Long Sleeve 3-D Dress
Parisian fashion is all about minimalist style with an element of surprise; think classic, unfussy silhouettes bearing 3-D florals or sleeves lined in pearls. Unlike the poppy shades of Portofino, for Paris stick to neutral hues; black, white, navy, or even a soft rose pink. Effortless elegance, right this way.
Whether you’re jetting across the Atlantic or driving one town over, we’ve got dresses for every destination. Shop cocktail dresses and long evening dresses for any occasion now!

Wedding Dress Shopping with Vlogger Jessica MacCleary
When should brides start shopping for their wedding dress?JM: “You should go wedding dress shopping about 6 to 9 months before your wedding so if you need alterations you have time to do that. But any time you feel ready is the time to go!”
Who should a bride bring to go dress shopping?JM: “People who are great to go wedding dress shopping with are people like your mom, your best friend, your grandma, a bridesmaid or two. But I’d recommend keeping it down to like 3 to 5 people since it can get a little hectic.”
What trends did you spot while shopping for your dress?JM: “One trend that I noticed was a lot of ball gowns with unique necklines.”
Did you buy a dress that you’ve always envisioned or something completely different?JM: “I completely ended up with the dress I’d always imagined I’d have for my wedding day! This is like my dream dress, the dress that’s similar to all the dresses on my Pinterest board…this was the dress.”
How was your shopping experience at Camille La Vie?JM: “My shopping experience at Camille La Vie was amazing! Everyone was so nice and attentive and had all the sizes and so many different styles. I was so glad I chose to go to Camille La Vie.”
How did you know you found “the dress?”JM: “I knew I found ‘the dress’ when I put it on…and then I didn’t want to take it off! I felt so beautiful and you just know. Like when you know you find love, you just know when you find ‘the dress.’”
Any additional advice for our brides-to-be?JM: “Don’t worry about the small stuff! Don’t worry about things you can’t control; your wedding is a day to celebrate your love with your future spouse.” So which dress do you think she chose?
