That (Red) Dress

You know, that piece. The one which makes you feel like a million dollars. That singular garment which makes all things appear possible and within reach. It’s truly amazing the power clothes have on one’s self-esteem, one’s self-confidence. And no matter what anyone says to the contrary, there’s nothing quite like a well-cut piece of clothing to make one feel as though one could rule the world. In this particular instance, my superhero item is this glorious red dress from Amanda Valentine. Which doesn’t need much in terms of accessories.  Perhaps a tribal clutch. Or a pair of killer heels.

We have soft spots for loud, art deco statement jewellery pieces. And we’re both HUGE fans of deconstructed clothing, salvaging bits from here and from there to create a completely new, reworked garment (see sheelagoh.etsy.com and discover what Amanda used to create her first ever design here). I bet you thought I was going to say we’re both huge fans of Maroon 5, huh? Did I mention that we’re both Geminis?  I mean, we share the same horoscope as Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and the Olsen twins (c’mon, I can die a happy woman now). That said, the very first time I saw Amanda’s work, I wasn’t impressed. I cannot lie. I thought …
