Willow, Marni & Tom Binns Faux Real


Wore this out to drinks at The Botanic, had a great Mandarin & Lemongrass Mojito!


Dress: Willow silk dress - I have 3 more dresses from this collection from Australian designer Willow Podgornik, which I absolutely loved. I think this one has a Bottega Veneta & 50's vibe (which I'm a huge fan of) which is completely different from the others. Sadly this dress is 3 sizes too big for me (but still had to get it), not so apparent on the lower half of the dress, due to the style, and slightly elasticated back, but at the top it does show...may see if it can get taken in)
Shoes: Marni patent 'Caramel' stiletto heels (am not 100% used to walking in these yet)
Cuff: Tom Binns Faux Real Cuff


Close-up of the Marni Shoes

Love the little green Chinese beads, I haven't seen any other design of Tom Binns that has these (I'll have to take and post my own photos of this cuff, as I'm afraid these don't do it justice at all).

  2. what a beautiful outfit !!!
    i love the colour of the dress, the double collar (the round shape and the draped halter neck).
    the buttons look like tiny bamboos, they are so refined and elegant !!!
    and the shoes match perfectly !!!

  19. Thanks geri & madame dior!.

    Eeps, Tanya, I know, I'm terrible! But I just loved the heel on this! Ideally I would also like it in the pale grey colour, and in the same heeled-version but with the buckle...hehe...I'm a little greedy girl!

  23. H - thanks! Yeah, love the cute buttons! And they're on 2 other dresses I have from the same collection by Willow, can't help playing with the buttons!

    MizzJ - yeah, I need to learn how to walk in these Marni's more gracefully!

    FrouFlou - thank you! :)

  24. I love that dress and the buttons! Do you think that you could take a more close up picture of the fastenings? I just bought a $15 vintage dress that looks very similar but needs all the buttons to be redone.
