The Golden Lady

3.1 Phillip Lim resort 2010 collection, look #6
3.1 Phillip Lim dress in December 2009 InStyle
Vintage eyelet blouse. 3.1 Phillip Lim skirt. Vintage feather headpiece. Locket necklace. Vintage costume pearl necklace worn as bracelet. Sergio Rossi sandals.
Look #6 from 3.1 Phillip Lim's resort 2010 RTW collection: a gloriously gilded lace dress featured in several fashion editorials (including on actress Noot Seear in Dec InStyle), but Mr. Lim didn't manufacture the frock beyond samples because its material tends to snag. However, this fabric was deemed successful in a skirt; here it's supersweet with an eyelet blouse & slightly subverted with a pair of leopard ponyhair peep-toe sandals. I collect lockets because I'm charmed by their Victorian purpose: wearing the photograph of someone special is sentimental yet still relevant. My necklace is two lockets strung together: the dark floral oval is by Betsey Johnson & the gold diamond heart is engraved with 'Love Poppy' (a gift from my dad's father).


  1. Hey FashionSheSays, you've gotta get a shot at the Marina Abramovic exhibit, just staring straight at her and not smiling. Would be epic.

  2. I'm loving all the intricate detaling on that skirt. Fabulous!

  3. amazing skirt! i loooove it especially with that eyelet top! really great outfit.
