Smooth As Silk

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

‘A fine lustrous fiber composed mainly of fibroin and produced by certain insect larvae to form cocoons, especially the strong, elastic, fibrous secretion of silkworms used to make thread and fabric.’ No fabric feels more luxurious then silk, a fabric which moves so graciously and falls so tastefully. Here at IndependentBoutique.com there are many beautiful silk garments, today I will talk you through some of my favourites.

Blank London - Snachi Red Silk Top

First up is this stunning Snachi Red Silk blouse by Blank London. This beautiful blouse allows you to look bohemian yet crisp and fresh. The vibrant colours effortlessly make you the centre of attention. Made from 100% silk this blouse radiates luxury and the loose fit allows comfort but doesn’t compromise on style.The print is similar to recent prints by Barbara Hulanicki’s, yet the floral finish gives it’s a tasteful twist. It would look unbeatable teamed with leather pants and boots heels, the perfect cocktail look!

Conditions Apply - Azore Pink Silk Dress

It was love at first sight when I saw the Azore Pink Silk Dress by Conditions Apply. It struck me with its beautiful cut and print. The soft print allows the garment to appear light and feminine and would complement any figure with its loose fit. This dress is also 100% silk and oozes glamorous appeal. I would have my hair tied back in a loose pony tail and very minimal jewellery perhaps a couple of silver rings and just allow the dress to do the talking. Read More.....
