Imagine it is two centuries ago and you are privileged enough to spend a summer with a group of similarly spoiled people at a beautiful chateau. You are spending time at walks through the breathtaking countryside, protecting yourself by sunshade, having picnics by the lake or rowing the boat. You enjoy parties on the vast terrace with a view to the endless gardens. When you get tired of the society, you agree to meet with your accomplice somewhere in a hidden corner of the garden or in one of the numerous luxury chambers.
As your life is pleasing and carefree, you are most likely involved in one or more love affairs, just to make your existence a bit more complicated.
It’s so easy to feel the lifestyle wealthy people lived in that period, when you visit the stunning Lednice Chateau. The place just instantly brings you to the different reality.
The chateau is the work of the Liechtensteins and their hedonistic approach to life. They hired the best architects, designers, artists and craftsmen to create the perfect summer residence in the heart of Moravia, in the current Czech Republic. They really made a great job.
The chateau is same beautiful from inside as from outside. As the large land surrounded by the beautiful nature was not enough to satisfy them, they created also the magnificent greenhouse, full of exotic plants and palms.
They also decided to build the minaret even though nobody would expect it at this part of Europe. Just like they wanted to proof any of their desires could be fulfilled.
As you, my dear reader, already know me for some time, you know how much I appreciate such places having ability to boost my fantasy. This is definitely one of them. For such an occasion, I decided to wear a modern version of the then fashion and style my hair to big waves with a Diamond Hairstyler.
This dress having classical cut and modern colours and pattern could not be complemented better than with my favourite marble rings from Happiness Boutique.
Having outfit that looks like being a part of the surroundings can really strengthen my experience. For a short while, I was a wealthy marquise having a wonderful summer in a place one can dream about.
