Readers of this blog will know of my deep love for exploring new places and experiencing different cultures. Stella Jean's creations capture the essence of Haiti in an incredibly vibrant and fun way. I've always felt that wearing one of her creations would be a bit like spending a beautiful summer's day in Haiti. I've been stalking Stella Jean on Matches Fashion and a handful of other sites for at least a year now. Unfortunately, as much as I loved the Haitian's style and aesthetic, I could not find a piece that worked for me. Those that did were always sold out!
Meet my fortuitous Stella Jean find - the swallow print dress (purchased the second it landed on Vestiaire Collective)!!! Its been a while since I've written a mainly fashion focused post and this wee find has now helped remedy that situation. I absolutely adore the dress- it makes me happy, I got complimented lots and it is so very bouncy!! I'm extremely impressed with the tailoring (despite my waist feeling corseted) and I am really looking forward to seeking out (i.e. buying on sale) more of her work.
Ed loved the dress too but said I had to save it for a special occasion. That's always a bit tricky.....define special?! Anyway, I figured a day spent drinking cocktails out of china cups followed by stomping around the Scottish Modern Art Galleries appreciating Roy Lichtenstein and Escher with friends seemed special enough.....don't you think?
