There once was a time when I didn’t give a second thought to fabrics if the style worked and fit. These days checking the quality and fabric type of the styles that I buy is often foremost in my mind: Will it feel good against my skin? How will the fabric stand up to the cleaning process? Is the fabric a quality fabric (am I getting the most out of my money here?)
Designer Marina Guergova of Marina London, who I recently posted about HERE, designs almost exclusively in silks. Silk is both luxuriously soft and relatively robust – it has a beautiful, delicate appearance and can be warm and cosy in the winter as well as comfortable and cool come summer time. An all-climate fabric in a wear-anywhere style here, in this versatile vest from the brand.
Being near the sea tends to prompt me to wear nautical colours – I lived in a great deal of blue and white on this holiday, colours that served me well – blue is the colour of the sky and the sea, symbolic of trust, wisdom, depth and stability; white is safety, purity, cleanliness. We all need a break from our hectic lives now and then; this last vacation was a detox from a busy schedule. I’m trying to slow down a little in the run up to Christmas – it’s my birthday next week, Blog Reader, so I can’t promise anything before then, but after, I’m going to wear blue silk again and take it easy.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend … StyleOnTheCouch xo
