AURELIAN PANTHER



While I have an undeniable affinity towards biker jackets, lately I've come to embrace and covet a different kind of sartorial style. And that is duster slash robe type coats fused with silken fabrics. Slinky in nature with an unassailable effervescence and a gracefully hypnotic ebb and flow as only such a lustrous fabric knows how.

It is indisputably as resplendent as it is flattering too, a firm and tangible sense of opulence, as if one were of royal Medici blood.


 WEARING 
Fields optical wayfarer glasses c/o Glasseslit
Missguided duster coat (similar here and here)
Cotton On tank (similar here and here)
ASOS Ridley jeans
ASOS lace bralette (similar here and here)
Senso Jescinta boots
Larsson & Jennings watch
Bag c/o Zaful

Opulence and extravagance aren't necessarily meant to be taken to heart nor need they yield exorbitant results. Because I've always found such sartorial splendours more polished and enigmatic when kept to bare minimums; instinctually basic with an energetic emphasis on such details. Like this shoulder bag from Zaful. A beautiful contradiction in terms of minimalism and statement gold studding for a touch of luxe (and if you hadn't noted a Marni dupe at that). Classically transcendent and a piece that perhaps a modern day Marie Antoinette would embrace with fervor.

Ultimately such pieces can give surge to powerful influences and alter ego personas through a sense of strength in fortitude and stance. For me, perhaps such poise could also be attributed with my new stylish glasses from Glasseslit. Equally as captivating and as luxurious as my sartorial counterpart with their a faux wooden finish, textured and iridescent with tones of crimson coalescing with obsidian. They've truly made the uneasy transition of utilising optics effortless. Something which has taken me many years to embrace, despite a drastic need for improved vision. With an impressive collection of both optical frames and sunglasses, 1000+ styles starting at $9.90 and a 100% satisfaction with excellent customer service Glasseslit need to be on your radar.

  1. I'm with you- biker jackets are totally my standard, but I've been drawn to long dusters lately, too!

  2. Hello dear Sonia! I know that you love the biker jackets and they fit you really well, but this duster coat is just as gorgeous too! I have never seen a duster coat in a color like this, it looks amazing and really peps up your outfit! I love dusters too, I have one in pale pink silk and a sheer white one for summer. Hope you had a great sunday! Best greetings, x Eva

  7. I love that jacket and the shade, it's so pretty on you. Always great to change style of jackets from your regular ones. I've been working a lot of midi coats lately, but have been finding more and more a-style jackets that I love!

    1. Yes I'm loving them too. I've needed glasses for so long and only recently had my eyes tested but trying to find frames that are on the larger side has proven to be impossible. The closest I get are the wayfarers but everyone has wayfarers these days and I want something a little more unique. Thank God for these guys hehehe xx
