Victorious Victorian

By the grace of Facebook memories, on this day 2 years ago I was coveting the

John Galliano SS19, look below. Lace, feminine ruffle accents and oh sweet broderie.

Give me a high neck with delicate detailing and I'll twirl all day.

Unabashedly regal and refined.

Romanticism at its finest. Soulful garments speaking volumes in artistic ruffles, layers and fluidity.

ALLSAINTS is having a sale on a few pieces now!



From endless buttons, to ornate gold scrolls Victorian aesthetics always make their way into my mood boards.

Victorian sartorial appeal is in full gear which transpired my absolute love and devotion to Alexander McQueen. No one does seduction and feminine allure like the McQueen team.

Where there is an explosion of lace and ruffles you will find it anchored with exquisite tailoring.

Extraordinary and quintessentially couture, McQueen pieces always utilize fabrics and materials beyond most wild dreams, sculpting thick fabrics into voluminous flowers and beyond.

One of the elements I love most is, no matter how elegant and feminine there is never a moment of fragility or meekness. It's boldness with a foot down sometimes even in militancy.

McQueen does balance, and does it every time.
