I can't help but notice the abundance of victorian and vintage styled clothing trending across the fashion industry. The popularity of all things ultra-feminine is increasing rapidly. Blending of these two styles has created a surge in delicate, ladylike ensembles which compliments beautifully when combined with a 21'st century edge. Once again I collaborated with my favourite fashion photographer & photoshop wiz Matryoshka, and luxury womenswear designer Melissa Bui for this shoot (need I say more…).
Melissa Bui's Auriga Top was a great way to subtly sport the feminine persona. I love the bow detailing with lace and pink embroidery because I find it very intricate and romantic. To contrast this gorgeous ladylike top I wore a fitted high slit sequins pencil skirt expressing the independent 21st century high street fashion glamour girl. The studded shoes lean more towards a gothic style than simply just being pretty or girly, but the beige colour of the shoes is the soft touch that brings together whole look.
I love this Kate Spade bag because it is so RETRO.... By now you might be saying that I’m clearly trying to adopt as many trends into this one look (.. hey why not?) The license plate on the bag is the looks talking point and the most unique item here; in fact it’s the perfect accessory to explore the vintage and Victorian focus of the shoot not to mention very appropriate for any new bride to be! Last but not least I accessorised with this traditional pearl Victorian charm choker, concluding my diverse and experimental outfit of the day.
