I think I’m addicted to silk shirts. I wear it to everything, from plane rides to events to sleep. When in doubt, I pull one out. They are the perfect companions for pants, jeans, shorts and skirts. Remember that a silk shirt can even be worn as a skirt, as demonstrated here! If I were marooned on an island, all I need are silk shirts.
Introducing my new love: the printed Nikicio silk shirt. From afar, it resembles a reptile print, but up close you will discover something completely unexpected. See? It’s like I’m wearing jumper, but not… I’ve ordered the matching pants too, can’t wait for them to arrive to complete the matchy look!
It’s been a while since Theodore has graced Cecylia.com, sorry everyone! Here is our dear pooch getting the ‘cute’ treatment and becoming acquainted with my vintage Roberta di Camerino bag. I learnt about the couture label when I was in Milan. Giuliana Camerino was highly innovative, she was the first handbag designer to use richly textured fabrics such as velvet, previously reserved for clothing only, to create her renowned bags. Her celebrity following included screen legends such as Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor. I was smitten by her life tale. Now whenever I go vintage shopping my eyes are always peeled for her signature gold R’s. Roberta di Camerino pieces can be found at ML Vintage.
Where: on my way to get kebabs
PS- For some mindless fun, try saying ‘Roberta di Camerino’ really fast 10 times. It really rolls off your tongue doesn’t it?:)
