Dark Opulence

by cecylia on September 13, 2012

As you may know, I rarely wear black. I went through an exclusive-black period during my teenage years, hence nowadays I tend to opt for colour and white (I’d wear white more if I was less clumsy and have such a disposition to ‘colouring-in’ white dresses with food). But when I spotted this little black silk jersey number on the Nu Couché website, (thank you Kimberley for the introduction to this exquisite Melbourne-made label), I had to have it. And what greater place to show off its bare back than at MSFW, even if it did mean I had to go ‘free-range’…

你们可能知道我不长穿黑色。小时候一段时间我长穿黑色,因此现在我更喜欢五颜六色和白色,但我经常掉食物在白衣服上。 但当我看到这条Nu Couché黑裙子是我立即爱上了它。谢谢我的朋友Kimberley将这个优美的墨尔本品牌介绍给我。除了春季服装节,我没有更好的机会穿上它。。。

Nu Couché dress/Sarah Conners bag/ Ghost & Lola ring & bracelet/ Vintage earrings, brooch & shoes

I am a self-professed clutch-addict (yes I admitted it here), so it was only natural for me to have the blue version of my favourite Sarah Conners bag as well as the green. The leather is so butter-soft it’s pure tactile indulgence. As for the crucifix ring and Medieval-esque bracelet, they are hand-made from vintage elements by Sydney jewellery label Ghost & Lola. The reason why these photos are taken in the car park is because I’m always getting changed in the car…now that would make an interesting video blog post :) Have you worn a backless black dress before? How do you style it?

我承认我非常喜欢无手带的包包。这个Sarah Conners蛇皮的包我也有绿色的。它的皮十分软,触觉很棒。至于中世纪式的手镯和十字架戒指,它们是悉尼首饰设计师Ghost & Lola由二手配件制作的。这些照片是在停车场拍的,因为我经常在车里更衣:)你穿过无背的裙子吗?你是怎样搭配的?

Very glamorous!! It has an old Hollywood feel to it. I love the pop of blue you added. I “color in” white clothing with food too. It’s like I have a hole in my mouth or something LOL

lol my mother tells me that I have a ‘hole’ in my mouth (aside from the real one) :)
