My new obsession started with the white Givenchy dress from the Resort 2011 collection. Not the dress actually, but the golden harness the model wears. I needed to have something similar. But that’s not easy to find. So maybe not a harness but a really unique necklace?
These lovely beetles on Sea of Shoes are truly adorable and I want them all but still – a harness (which doesn’t look too gothic) would be even better.
This harness, which I saw on Life in Travel is incredibly beautiful. But I couldn’t find anything similar (too golden, too heavy, too gothic, too whatever), so I kept on searching.
Pamela Love designs amazing things, but the things I considered were nowhere available. Plus: some necklaces for example are too (not even gothic)… erm… dark maybe? Not me. The line is really thin.
After a long, long search I finally found what I was looking for at Bliss Lau. Again many harnesses are too “dark” for me, but they also have some which are simply “me”. I needed to make them “mine”. So this is what I finally ordered:
Can’t wait to see how it will look in real life. I ordered one size bigger than I usually would because I prefer it more loose. I guess I will have to be patient. It can take up to six weeks to be ready to be sent out.
