The other day we inherited a beautiful chaise lounge, which is in the style of an 18th Century Méridienne French lounge chair. It’s not actually from the 18th Century… nonetheless I’m so in love with it!
I thought it was the perfect place to perch elegantly, to show off some gorgeous dresses by Australian designer label Aelkemi.
This Silk Indigo Gown is so sophisticated and stunning, yet so simple in it’s style. I really liked the high neck, the pleats and folds, and the way the dress fitted on my upper body – strong and secure. Yet I loved the way the silky skirt folds across my legs as I walk.
I felt like a million dollars hehe! I also felt like I should be dripping with diamonds and that someone needed to peel grapes for me pronto!
And same with this dress. I’m wearing a Champaign One-Shoulder Pleated Gown. It was also such an elegant and stunning dress. I seriously had a Cinderella moment (which doesn’t happen often).
The dress fit me wonderfully. The pleats were luxurious and the one-shoulder was feminine and modern. It would be perfect to wear to a wedding, a ball, or some grand and elegant function.
What I love most about Aelkemi’s dresses (and overall style) is the clean and strong designs, the sophisticated and stunning looks that are all so beautiful and classic.
Do check out the Aelkemi website for more info.
(PS – I had a blast with these photos. I don’t often pose with props in my self-portraits!)
