How gorgeous is this dupioni silk dress? It’s poetic, its romantic, and it’s something I would most likely never wear unless someone was throwing a Tess of the D’Urbervilles party of sorts. (which, by the way I am hooked on right now. Hooked. )


The dress is from the very cool Makool. I must also add that the photography is sensational don’t you agree? Check out the etsy boutique here, and the Makool blog here.


Be Happy Now’s tiny books are a bit of finger-tingling gorgeousness too. And guess what? This next image will give you a clue…


This beautiful artwork from Jose Lampreia is appropriately titled rainy days. Yep, it’s raining in Amsterdam. Aren’t we all surprised. Not. Meanwhile, I’m told it’s sunny and 30C in Sydney right now. Pfff. I shouldn’t be too green as just as I wrote that, I looked out the window to see a horse and carriage clopping along my street.

    Thanks for featuring my dress. I don’t usually make formal wear and you can view my past collections here:
    I’ve been looking at a ton of wedding gowns lately for my wedding next year. Compared to what’s on the market $775 for a silk gown tailored to your own measurements,is really reasonable. We also offer cheaper items in our online store
    I’m glad you like the dress, and thank you for your kind words.

    I am sitting here in 97 degree California (36C)wishing desperately that I could be walking down a rainy street in Amsterdam in a fabulous dress like that.
    Great picks, as always!
