On our last night in Croatia we were walking through the old town of Dubrovnik and ended up in a narrow street full of life and small shops. We stepped into an old orthodox church and on the way out I saw a small boutique across the street. At the open door way was a mannequin wearing the perfect dress. Now, I’ve been looking for a dress for an October wedding and even if we were broke (It was the last day of the holiday) I had to try it on. And it fit like a glove. But I had to leave it there as I didn’t have enough money with me to get it and we were flying home the next day. All I got was a picture.
Back home in Ireland I couldn’t stop thinking about the red dress. So we tried to remember the name of that small street, the church, the shop and finally found out a little bit more about the small Croatian designer brand called Nebo. Then we found an email address and finally a phone number. And now, one month and a few emails later, I got my dress! In addition to the fact that the dress is absolutely gorgeous, I was happy to get it from Nebo, whose high quality clothes are made locally in Croatia. The clothes are elegant and stylish yet playful and edgy.
P.S. They have a stunning handbags line as well.
