I’ve just moved house in order to spend less on rent. My initial intention was to be a good grown-up and invest the extra money in an RA account (I’m almost thirty now guys, one has to look ahead)… but then I saw the new Selfi and Margot Molyneux collections and now my new life aspiration is to own a Matisse-inspired dress and moss-green wrap-dress – who needs a retirement fund anyway right? (No one show this to Tom – I’ll be in trouble.)
I’ve loved both of these brands for a long time now – they’re all about making women feel beautiful, and I love how effortless the looks are; there’s a certain timelessness to all of the designs. They’re soft, feminine and expensive-looking yet affordable. Both brands also reflect a story – perhaps the Selfi line in particular, which is all about women taking ownership of their bodies and loving the way they look.
Here are a few of my favourites:
S E L F I: All about embracing one’s body, with strong influences from Matisse
MARGOT MOLYNEUX: Soft, feminine and beautiful; with a touch of strength and structure
So, if you’re also looking to update your wardrobe instead of your retirement fund, show local some love and get your hands on some of these beauties!
