When I lived with my best friend Laura, we were avid watchers of Absolutely Fabulous. One of our great hoots was how Edina could wear the most hideous thing, and she’s whine “It’s LA CROIX SWEETIE!” and Patsy would demur,”It’s FABULOUS.”
We’d do that to one another almost daily, peels of laughter ringing out through our roach ridden apartment.
So it’s funny to me, a bit, that when I put on anything new from Tres Jolie, my first instinct is ALWAYS – “It’s FABULOUS!” and I’m always worried people will think I mean it in that AbFab way…which couldn’t be further from the truth.
Le Jardin Oriental, a recent release, was my Rez Day gift from Cajsa. I swear to you I did the Snoopy happy dance before I even unpacked it. Because Iknew……..
I knew it would be like this.
With remarkable details on the shading and the cut out work on the dress is truly unique. I just sat and cammed around looking at it, trying to take it all in, while Cajsa shot.
Add to that the gorgeous modern jewelry from Balderdash (also a Rez Day pressie from Cajsa YEAH I got good Pressies!) and this is an elegant cocktail gown or even day where with it’s delicate versatility.
The jewelry from Balderdash is gorgeous close or at a distant, truly unique and I’m going to have to go shopping there now.
Shopping at Tres Jolie isn’t cheap. But neither is the craftsmanship. And like I’m ALWAYS telling you, it is better to have ONE of something good, than 20 of something shitty. And paying for the highest in design in this case means you GET the highest end design, and a designer who wants you to look your absolute best.
