Antique furnishings and vintage finds such as this trunk that beckons to the customer to 'rummage' through to see what rare precious findings are on offer!
Me, delighted with my "Made in Italia" 100%silk camisole-top. I actually purchased x2 from Silk Italia as at $69, I thought what an essential wardrobe staple and long may it live forever. Cut on the bias, and a flattering versatile length for curves, it would complement a few body-shapes and what a perfect layering piece as I have done here with my RLS Redesigned Boutique Jacket and Lust for Vintage Jewels accessories. I would also tuck it in with skirt, limitless options!
Trelise Cooper Jacket paired with vintage french silk slip with antique lace, just stunning! Madame Susha designs and has on display her embellished shabby chic silk florette brooches, she likes to use these to create asymmetry in garment hems, making for a unique and very individual flair!
If you haven't paid Silk Italia a visit, it's well worth making the time, you won't regret it!
