The Stella Shirt

Monday, February 09, 2015


The Stella Shirt
I tend to run into problems with oversized tops, the collar hangs too loose around my neck - and yeah I see the contradiction there, but I love my chokers, I love my crew necks, mock necks and turtle necks, so you better believe I go all the way to the throat with a button up shirt. In the case of the Stella Shirt/dress, one or two buttons undone at the bottom adds a touch of flirtatiousness to this boyish, boxy silhouette!

Áo dài

Saturday, February 07, 2015

.
Probably one of the most perfectly fitted things that I own - a Vietnamese Áo dài tailor made for me in black, since I don't really wear any other colour. There's a sea of boutiques and retailers out there that can tickle me silly, but nothing beats the love/care and flawless precision of a tailor made garment. This dress is going to pass down to my daughters or my baby sister one day.

a not so ordinary bush walk featuring this perrrrrfect Swing dress by Oh My Love. What can I say, I love a bell sleeve, I love a bell sleeve dress even more - and in this case, extra kudos for the on-point Stevie Nicks reference !

SOLACE

Sunday, January 18, 2015


MISSGUIDED Purdy backless body suit / **Solace London Metallic culottes** / RIVER ISLAND tassel rucksack / Black heeled sandals


If Greek Goddesses were into culottes, they would wear Solace London. Cinched waist, with a soft silver waterfall in front, cut and folded entirely from luxurious metallic satin; it is a true vision of heaven. I swear Gian Lorenzo Bernini himself sculpted these. While admittedly a little on the pricier side for something so polyester, I kinda don't want to imagine a reality where I don't get to float around in these.
They arrived just in time for NYE where I made a tiny tribute video here on tumblr, having gone momentarily mental with satisfaction.

I have quite a few Solace London pieces by now, maybe it'll be worth making a post about all of them at some point, if just to have all the beautiful things in one place, next to each other, to sob in their general direction.
