One should always keep people guessing, espescially when it comes to fashion. We love mixing up vintage with new for that unique look. It defines oneself amongst a sea of predictable. So this week,  we have all new contemporary luxury designer dresses paired with vintage accessories. The silk Alberta Ferretti on the left is about a size 4 and is shown with a vintage crystal belt and necklace. The wool tweed Dior in the centre (sold)is a size 4-6 and has been decorated with a vintage Chanel camellia brooch. The hand crochet silk Oscar on the right is a size 10-12 and is belted with a deco jet flapper strand (can be used as a necklace as well).

We know how much you ladies like your dresses with full skirts so we’ve decided to give you a double dosage of volume this week. Just to plump you up a little for the holidays. These aren’t your regular LBD’s kittens, click to zoom in on the intricate details of their lace/silk/beadwork. Lefty lacey is by one of Marilyn Monroe’s fav designers; Ceil Chapman. It’s about a size 0 (if that, super tiny) and dates from the 1950’s. Worn with a jet crystal necklace.  The 1960’s centre hand beaded sheath is about a size 12 and does have sleeves (a recent addition that can be removed easily should you choose). The dazzling 1950’s number on the right is about a size 6 and has been paired with a 60’s multi chain & coin statement necklace.

We’re fully stocked with lots of sparkly tops and skirts to help you complete your holiday party look(s). Enter the room in a luxe purple & gold combo to dazzle them this season. Fun fact;  since ancient times Tyrian purple (also known as royal purple, imperial purple or imperial dye) is a purple-red dye, which is extracted from sea snails. It was first produced by the ancient Phoenicians as early as 1570 BC. It took as many as 250,000 mollusks to yield just one ounce of usable dye. Clothes made from the dye were exorbitantly expensive—a pound of purple wool cost more than most people earned in a year—so they naturally became a status symbol of the rich and powerful. The struggle was real for poor purple lovers. Fast forward to the 1850’s~scientist (and snail hugger) William Perkin stumbled upon inventing the first synthetic dye, that being purple. The masses could now indulge in wearing the once unachievable colour and the snails rejoiced anointing Perkin their King.
