Recently a friend of mine recommended that I visit an outlet in Valletta called BBY Malta, an outlet that stocks a number of beautiful elegant dresses in mini, midi and full lengths as well as unique two piece suits by the Romanian fashion brand BBY.

BBY’s slogan is "Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be You".

As its motto implies, the fashion line is very interesting and prominent. It is for the woman who enjoys a stunning dress, one that is unique. The shop receives new stock every three weeks and the management only orders two sizes of each item, which ensures that you will not be seen at the same event wearing the same dress as someone else.

For purposes of this blog, to show you how gorgeous their pieces are I selected four dresses that I personally liked from their current collection, keeping in mind that very soon all the invitations to weddings, engagements and cocktail parties will start blossoming in our mail boxes just like spring flowers in bloom. Next month, I intend to show you the bright coloured ones.

For this photoshoot, I collaborated with the professional Italian photographer Federico Peltretti. We chose the magnificent upper rooms of Palazzo Parisio in Naxxar as a backdrop for our shoot and timed it perfectly with our friend the Baroness Ramsay’s birthday. When our job was done, we obviously enjoyed a pleasant late lunch at the Palazzo, a well-deserved treat we think .

Black and Nude Elegance

This dress is one of my favourites from their current collection. It is a fitted dress with lace embellishment at the top and the bottom. I wore it with my new nude Mineli shoes and accessorised it with a nude gloss purse bag, a statement bracelet and earrings from the spring/summer collection at Porto.

Black is Beautiful

The Little Black Dress never goes out of fashion and will always be a firm favourite. This particular one with lace detailing gives it that tango dress feeling. I paired it with black shoes with glamorous diamante drops by Mineli and a glossy black purse from Porto at Portomaso and I felt like I was ever so ready to dance!
