Henry Green was talking about editing and writing when he said, “The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in.” The truth of that statement, though, applies to fashion as well as writing or any other kind of art. That is why I enjoy wonderfully restrained minimalist design like you get from ISON & Rowne. These pieces are from a showcase collection that will be taken off the market after September 30th, so go to ISON as soon as you can.
What was left out? There is no fussy fastening where the skirt fastens on right hand side. Incidentally, most wrap skirts fasten on the left, so even that was a design decision. An important element in its design are the French seams, that highlight the close-fitting form of the skirt. With simplicity, we see the beauty of the fabric, uninterrupted by distractions.
It is the same with the blouse. The simple drape and cuff of the sleeves on the blouse and the unadorned keyhole closure that drops deep and draws attention to the bodice, but without a fussy pussy bow. (This is not a reference to cat whiskers.) Again, this lets us notice the beautiful fabric and the beautiful tailoring.
With such restraint and discipline in my skirt and top, a bit of exuberance was called for when choosing my shoes. I opted for the newest release from Glamistry, called Hortensia. There you will find the big bow that was left off the blouse. This was irresistible to my sense of humor.
Truth released a brand now hair called Tyne that is excellent in every regard. I like the slightly shorter length. The hair falling forward is so much more natural when your hair is this length. Long hair is usually falling behind your back because we shove it out of the way in real life. The skin is a Glam Affair applier for Lelutka from quite a while back called Rachel.
