Blame it on Leonardo DiCaprio. He first captivated all of us Juliette-wannabes with his dreamy looks in the modern Shakespeare adaption by Baz Lurhmann, then he confused us and confounded us with his vivid dreams in Inception. I’m not sure if Melbourne-based designer, Jolet (last seen here) was inspired by the Hollywood heartthrob’s films or not (should have asked her when I had coffee with her last week!) but her new SS11/12 collection is romantic enough for us to all feel like a beautiful Claire or Marion.
I have been itching to show you this tangerine Karla Spetic blouse with cut-outs for a while now. It was one of the only pieces my business partner left me when she left me which fit me, the rest of the boutique pieces are now available for adoption here.
These fork earrings are super handy for picnic days or if you rock up uninvited to a BBQ. I would love to meet the first person to ‘invent’ these and given them a pat on the back- what a quirky way to recycle something so practical!
You probably remember my favourite ivory tassel necklace in this post, but I wanted to also show you the compartments! A true vintage gem, as ancient Chinese used to store medicinal herbs (or so they say) in these! There’s a similar necklace on sale here!
Where: on the way to return library books
I bought Jolet’s Lucid Dream silk pleated skirt as a Christmas present to myself. Jolet’s pieces are exquisitely tailored and are all made locally here in Melbourne. Go on, support our local designers, they are the future!
Wearing the skirt makes me feel like I’m on an exotic destination. Lucid dream indeed. Happy New Year to you! xx
