A Long Journey: Emily and Fin Dresses from Talis

The English Text:

Last month, November 2, 2018 to be exact, Talis, a fashion shop in Australia that sells fashion products from Europe, held a warehouse clearance sale in a Facebook group called ‘Talis Vintage Style’. Dresses usually priced at $150 were uploaded onto the group at a price of $50. This meant of course that all the members of the Facebook group competed with one another to buy the dresses as quickly as possible. And do you know which products caught my attention the most? Emily and Fin!

Emily and Fin is a fashion brand from London which produces fine clothes, both in the modern and vintage style. I am interested, of course, in their dresses in the vintage style. I’ve been interested in trying their dresses for quite a while, but I was uncertain about the size. Because of this, when Talis held the big and remarkable sale event, I thought here is the best opportunity to try out Emily and Fin.

I recall that over the few days the sale was taking place, I was actually busy travelling by land from Central Queensland to Brisbane. The internet signal during the trip was unstable, but nonetheless I persisted in trying to join in with this event. And I was successful in winning three dresses from Emily and Fin which I had dreamed about, namely ADA Dress Romance is Born, Violet Dress Jade with White Polka Dots and Florence Dress Bed of Roses.

However, this last year, I have become very interested in this kind of motif. In the beginning, I did not understand what made me change my mind.

I started by buying and trying on a leopard dress from Collectif Clothing. When I looked in the mirror, I think I fell in love with this motif. I then started to look for more information about the profile of this animal, which has been for some time one of the fashion world’s strongest inspirations.

Revisiting Heritage Buildings in Harlequin Dresses

The English Text:

Last weekend, my husband and I enjoyed a short holiday in Brisbane. It’s not a new place for us, but because we presently live in a small town, a visit to a big city is always refreshing.

For me, the most thrilling aspect of visiting a big city like Brisbane is the majestic and artistic old buildings. We revisited some of these buildings and captured them in some images.

Of course I prepared some dresses that I thought might be suitable for the atmosphere of the big city and its majestic architecture. My choice fell to dresses with harlequin motifs that were produced by Pinup Couture.
