Dress Up

Truth be told, I’ve been waiting months for a day warm enough to wear all of my pretty dresses and Spring favourites for a shoot, but because that seems so far off, and because this particular dress is so special, I decided to suffer the cold to show it off.

The dress in question was sent to me awhile back by Datura, one of my absolute favourite clothing brands (you may recognize the name from my post on their newest look book). Designed in NYC and made in Barcelona, Datura explores the connection between the natural world and the urban landscape, and with their inspiring philosophies on sustainability and quality production, it’s no surprise that I’ve totally fallen for them.

This dainty silk ballet dress is so soft and buttery, and the way the fabric floats around my body when I wear it makes me feel like a graceful dancer twirling on stage. Paired with glittery ballet flats and one of Datura’s gorgeous hand-embroidered constellation scarves (very important note: the embroidered stars are glow in the dark), it’s the perfect look for a dreamy evening out with fancy cocktails and dancing in the moonlight.

Dress Up

I have a lot of favourite brands that I get super excited about, but it’s not often that something new catches my attention and earns my devotion. But of course, there are always exceptions.

I discovered Datura a few weeks ago, and I’ve been completely smitten ever since. A online-only brand designed in New York and made in Barcelona, Datura’s clothing is both classic and adventurous, formal and informal. Created with a spirited, adventurous, independent woman in mind, Datura is for those who love well-crafted clothing vs. trends and fashion.

One of my favourite elements to this brand is their dedication to quality and ethical manufacturing. They frequently embark on artist collaborations, closely monitor the creation of their line, and release limited runs of collections made entirely of specialty natural fabrics. The result is an effortlessly breathtaking wardrobe of buttery silk, delicate wool, luxurious velvet, and most recently, fluffy mohair (the look book for which you’ll see in this post.)

From the oversized cotton candy sweaters to the delicate black astrology scarves, I can’t get enough of Datura, and I can promise you’ll see more from them around here very soon.
