INSPIRATION - Linen Dresses & Romance was Born!
This season Romance was Born (one of L’s favourite labels) incorporated a lot of linen in their AW 2012 collection, HAPPY CAMPER. One of our favourite pieces is the linen splice dress (especially in the navy colourway)! It has a delightful thick linen top with a bright silk printed skirt. RWB makes some wonderful clothes and designs their fabrics themselves as well - rumours has it, they do the designs in Melbourne in the same building as Alice Euphemia! (Though we did hear this many years ago!)
Having this dress in mind, we immediately saw the beauty of this navy spliced dress that is in our eBay store at the moment. Though it doesn’t have bright colours to entice you, the skirt is made from microsuede, giving it an equally luxurious feel to silk! Sitting just above the knee, we left this dress unaltered as we like the “babydoll” shapelessness of the waist line! If you feel like more ooommphh just style it with your favourite belt - a stand out colour like red or fuchsia would go wonderfully.
