Zara breton stripe top (similar), Lover lace skirt (dress or similar), Alexander Wang heels, Proenza Schouler PS11 bag, Gorjana bracelet

Is there ever such a thing as too much simplicity? With such an intricate woven lace, made complete with 3D flowers which while unassuming are anything but, there seems little need to complicate it with additional bells and whistles. A slim breton stripe, a crisp white shirt with rolled up sleeves, or a fine knit jersey are my accompaniments of choice.

I’ve been a lover of Lover ever since I can remember stumbling across their clothing, tucked away in what was then, one of my newest discoveries. My affinity with the label goes back so far that where my mind conjures up images, the internet fails to do so, in the days of ‘Miss Francoise’ and ‘Performance’. My first piece, was a far cry from the delicate lace pieces I seemingly gravitate towards. Instead, I opted for the practical side, a simple pair of faded black cuffed denim shorts, with grosgrain ribbon trim and oversized buttons. I seldom pay it little thought, the concept of a label growing up, maturing as their consumers do, but on reflection, it’s an act which Lover have managed to pull off with ease, a gradual shift which lies parallel to my own growth. Their current collection, Chorus, really seems to play off on those youthful yet grown up elements, which as a girl in her mid-twenties, resonates strongly with me. And as for the lace? I’ll take one in each colour please.

    Oh wow that is one incredibly gorgeous skirt! I share your sentiment in regards to Lover. They just keep getting better and better. And I love how you chose to let the skirt shine by pairing it up with a tee. You rock a skirt like no other babe. Beautiful!

    Love love the skirt. BTW where is that door?

      Hey Liv, the door is in Seatoun, in Wellington. If you’re going through the tunnel into Seatoun (down toward the water), you take a right turn one road before the beach and it’s a block in (not sure if this is a good explanation but the best I can manage without a map). It’s part of a quaint little church!

    The lace is exquisite. I was trying to remember how I originally came across Lover – I think it might have been through the Vogue forums? The first piece I purchased was the Ritual Pintuck Dress from the Love Bomb collection. I still love it!
