Chasing Rainbows is well and truly back to it, after a long hiatus due nine week Europe trips and surprise Tiffany ring engagements! But we're getting organised and ready to bring out a Spring/Summer collection! Some from Paris...ooo la la.
We're loving the spring colours and tailoring; ethereal maxi skirts and big dumb combat boots, pastel tailored shorts with suede wedged heels. The purple spectrum looks fresh and refined, especially low saturation lilacs. However, I'm not sure if I'm buying into the clogs trend this season, should I?
The downfall of a vintage side business and a love for vintage is the dilemma of when to keep items for myself or when to share it. This is one such item! I'm all confused. Would you girls buy it? How much do I love it? Do i have an occasion for it? Would someone love it more than I? et cetera.
Big V was in Europe scouring for vintage treasures and then doing some volunteering work in Vietnam, so I'm left to my own device and am oh so indecisive! Help me out on this one!
Floor length mustard dress with amazing shoulder and neckline embroidery.
When I was young I had a pen-pal, who was just my primary school best friend separated at high school. We use to write to each other on cute stationery even though we lived in the same suburb. And for every letter we use to write "thanks postie!" on the front of the envelope. Hopefully a postie received our appreciation for keeping us in contact. PS: I'm still great friends with my primary school bestie =)
I haven't utilised Australia Post as much as my pen-palling days until now! This is how all our goods are packaged before trusting it entirely to the postie.
These are some before and after shots of our last collection! Sometimes we go to great lengths to make dresses shorter (harhar), fitted and more contemporarily stylish. Most of the time we enthusiastically launch into cutting dresses up into pieces (because we have a fantastical idea for the dress!) before we have a chance to even reach for a camera and document day zero. But some rare times, our brain works before our enthusiasm! Hope you see the hard work we put in to altering the dresses to the ones you see in the collection. Enjoy!
