A&F: Ahh, Stella

Yes, I am still in awe of her designs; all the colors with masterful cuts and great melange of textures….Ahhhh, I can see myself wearing so many of the Spring Summer 2015 collection! Thankfully, my pocket is better grounded than my deceiving heart so let’s just look at the catwalk pictures, shall we? Full display over at Vogue UK. Also a video on Youtube of the full catwalk presentation, and below my favorites.

My piece on Stella Jean over on this post. Happy Wednesday!

Review: Grosgain Lace Dress

Today, I am reviewing this pretty dress in Caravan Blue.

ebelandi_review_collection_grosgain_lace_dress_16dec14

What: Collection Grosgain Lace dress by J.Crew

Season: Winter 2014

Material: 100% cotton outer, 100% polyester lining

Quality: Very Good, l love the lace detailing.  The only disappointment is that the thread can easily snag or pull out…So be careful where you seat and what accessories you use while wearing the dress. I love the caravan blue color as well.

Fit: True-to-size to slightly small.  If you’re in between sizes, I’d recommend to order your larger size.  The length is right at my knees, I could size up to get a little more length but will lose the fit at the waist. Dilemma of the giant :)

 

Sissi’s verdict: Got it on some major sale and lucky popback so a definite keeper!

Do you agree? Please share!

Yellow Coat anyone

I have been eyeing the Lady Day coat in Warm Chartreuse because of the lovely and happy color. Browsing the web, I found a DIY coat made by Beaute J’adore…I like how she is able to sew her own clothes using quality material! Take a look at her blog. My favorite picture from her blog below.  Copyrights Beaute J’adore.
