The Dress

IMG_9831 
-UPDATE-

First of all, I wanted to apologies for this massive hiatus from the blog! I have definitely missed posting on here and it feels great to be back! I have had the most intense first couple months back at uni, juggling a million different commitments and running on little to none sleep! For those who are still unaware, Jenny is pregnant! Which resulted in her feeling unwell during her first trimester, which is why she has been absent from Two Threaded Poppies these past couple of months. But we and our family are still super excited for the baby’s arrival towards the end of the year. When she feels ready, she will be back to post again, but in the mean time I will be taking over the blog (hope y’all don’t mind) :) So today, I have prepared a little book review, of a book I’ve finally had the chance to have a read…

For those who love admiring fashion illustrations and love pretty whimsy and sparkly dresses, this one’s for you. Megan Hess is probably one of my favourite fashion illustrators. Yes, she is super talented at what she does, let’s be honest. But I love her style of illustration… it’s very classic with her modulating brushstrokes and incorporation of interesting textures and prints – a mix of hand and digital rendering. ‘The Dress’ is all about those iconic moments in fashion and how it shaped and moved the fashion world. It’s really interesting to read about the history and background behind these amazing dresses she has illustrated and the intention behind them.

I love how this book is categorised into a few sections: Designers, Icons, Weddings, Music, Film and the Oscars. We get a glimpse of different realms of the fashion world which I find really interesting.

IMG_9833 IMG_9832 IMG_9835Definitely recommend getting this book, because firstly, it’s pretty. Secondly, her illustrations are beautiful to look at… (there’s 100 to look at, come on) and thirdly, these illustrated dresses were designed by the most famous fashion designers in the world, worn by some famous people too, both film and real life, it’s something you don’t want to miss :) You can grab your copy here.

March Wish List

For someone who prefers the warmer months, I was surprised when I told myself that I was ready for Winter and that I was starting to get over Summer. We’ve had a pretty warm first month of Autumn in Sydney so far, and to be honest, all I felt like doing was get into some nice cosy layers. I think I’m just ready for some fresh new clothes…. something a little different… As the cooler seasons start to kick in, I’m eager to get into chelsea boots and warm lapel coats as well as some pretty knits :) However, I am not eager for those early morning starts, having to wake up and get ready in the cold…

Here are some items I’ve been lusting over for this Autumn:March 2015

OOTD: Faded Dream

I don’t know, but there’s just something about the colour of lavender that makes me weak and impulsive. When I saw this dress, it was like love at first sight. I was lucky enough to grab it before it quickly sold out everywhere!

This is like the epitome of feminine and sophistication. I must admit, I felt pretty classy in this dress haha. And I paired the subtle shade with neutral tones to harmonise with the lilac. When going for this type of shade, keep it light and simple – don’t over do it.

I reckon this outfit is perfect for rocking at a wedding (ceremony and/or reception!)
