Custom Dress in Ravello

Custom Dress in Ravello

Welcome to the amazing town of Ravello on the Amalfi Coast of Italy, destination number two on our Italian honeymoon.  Now, I’m not going to lie to you, wedding planning was hard.  I wasn’t amazing at it (though I have many friends that are).  The relief of being on vacation and in a beautiful foreign country with my HUSBAND, feels amazing.

Strolling through the town of Ravello was like walking back in time.  Cobblestone streets, peeling paint, flowers and quaint squares as far as the eye can see. Ravello is the perfect town for taking a bit of time and strolling around for the day.  The gardens in the 2 villas of the town are spectacular and meant for wandering.

Our days in Ravello were filled with cooking classes, wine tasting (buying A LOT of wine that then needed to be shipped home), eating amazing food, wandering, and well, a bit of shopping.

My favorite thing I wore in Ravello was this beautiful dress from Piol.  Piol is an amazing custom dress company based in NYC.  As a 6 foot tall woman, you can imagine things don’t always fit quite right.  Though, I feel like so many women feel this way about shopping.  Finding something that feels amazing can be hard.  Well, Piol takes the stress right out of shopping.  Their made to measure dresses are super fun and easy to create.  Simply pick a color pallet, select your silhouette and fabric then provide your measurements.  In a few short weeks you’ll have the best fitting dress you’ve ever owned.

One thought on “Custom Dress in Ravello

  1. Hello Emily,
    Your blog on the custom dress in Ravello caught my eye. What beautiful sites you found – the floral colors really meld with those in the dress.
    I wanted share a quick story/post idea that might be of interest to your blog readers…a little gadget that helps with customization!
    The idea is to rethink buttons as a versatile fashion accessory – which is now possible with the world’s first interchangeable button system. This no-sew technology is giving old shirts/coats/dresses a fresh strut down the runway of life!

    HOW IT WORKS: With a few simple steps (press release) the details of any outfit can be easily stylized based on the occasion at hand (e.g. from traveling, to an office meeting, to a night out.) It’s the perfect invention for fashion forward types who want to control the color and pop in any ensemble. The product is called Auxilry and just launched this week on Kickstarter.

    The creator (Anibal Marin, a NYC fashion and wearable technology designer) believes buttons are underutilized in fashion and should be customized and accessorized: “We want to give men and women the option of bringing new life to their old favorite shirt, or customize the look of a new shirt.”

    Here are some pics of Anibal using the product.

    Please let me know if this is of interest. I’d be happy to connect you with Anibal for a quick chat. Thanks!
