A(r)mor Mon Amour

I've been going a little Etsy crazy lately and I want to share with you one of my favourite shops. A(r)mor make very delicate, and very beautiful body chains, taking accessorising to a whole new level. I love how they're avant-garde yet minimalist at the same time. Plus they're perfect if you're into draping. Everybody wins!

Lulu from Lulu and Your Mom wearing one of their creations. I love how she can wear it effortlessly over a plain white top and look amazing.

Will definitely be saving up my pennies for one of these beauties. In the meantime I'm considering buying some chain from Spotlight to have a play around myself.

Heart in a Cage

After what appears to be almost three years of procrastination, I've decided to put this blog to good use.

I thought I would start with an item of clothing I'm currently lusting after - the cage skirt.

As a long-time lurker of the blogosphere, the cage skirt has been hard to ignore over the last year or so. Perfect for my love for layering and current obsession with structural design, I'm sensing a DIY project on the horizon.

The one that started it all. Acne cage skirt as seen in Nylon Feb 08

And here are some lovely ladies that know how it's done:

One of my all-time favourite bloggers Queen Michelle from Kingdom of Style in her I Heart Norwegian Wood cage skirt. I love everything about these two outfits. The woman is an absolute genius.

First Post Blues

Due to a serious case of procrastination and a dormant love-life, I have decided to try my hand at the self-indulgent world of style blogging. Personal tribulations aside, I have concocted this blog to put my love for fashion, the arts, pop-culture, and not-so-pop-culture to good use. I am not a well-seasoned fashionista, and my tastes may be labelled as slightly left of centre, but I hope to write about what I know and love.
It would be lovely for you to visit this soon-to-be treasure trove of pretty clothes and other oddities for your daily dose of style and culture.
