The Bigger You Love (the Harder You Fall)

I've named this post after one of my favourite tracks from the album A Perfect Contradiction by the awesome Paloma Faith - if you're not familiar with her, give her a listen - she has a wonderful vintage sound and style that's reminiscent of Amy Winehouse, and she might almost come close to taking Amy's place in my heart some day.  Of course, I have room for them both really - what a relief we don't have to swear fidelity to only one artist, musician or fashion designer at a time!

A lovely thing happened today. I received an Easter card from Dani Plassitz, the designer behind Styles by Danielle, and in it were some gifts - including this fabulous boho tunic dress called Ellie Spring Cerise. I just had to try it on straight away! Thank you Dani <3

By happy chance, the dress is a perfect match for the sandals I grabbed from Reign at the weekend - they're on a special offer at the moment for just 75L in several colour combinations - but I'm not sure how long for, so if you want them for this fantastic price, run!

The Colour Purple - Monochromatic Fair Preview

The Monochromatic Fair opens on Friday 18th April and runs till 2nd May.  The idea behind it comes from colour chromatics - the effect of taking one colour and applying tonal variations to create a harmonious effect. Designers have each chosen a colour to work with for their exclusive items that will only be sold at the fair, which should present some great opportunities for mixing and matching!

For my first preview of Monochromatic Fair, I have chosen the exclusive item from ~ghee~ . Warm Clarity chose the colour purple for her item, and has made this slinky, sensuously draped gown in a lovely soft lavender sand-washed silk texture. It's all kinds of sexy, but elegant and glamorous at the same time. Included in the package are a sweet hair accessory (not shown) and a matching mesh thong, which has been thoughtfully provided as this gown is, shall we say, rather revealing! You  can probably tell how much I like it because I couldn't decide on just 2 photos to share!

Available exclusively at The Monochromatic Fair from April 18th.
