While I have an undeniable affinity towards biker jackets, lately I’ve come to embrace and covet a different kind of outerwear style. And that is duster slash robe type of coat fused with aurelian, silken-like fabrics. Slinky in nature with an unassailable effervescence and a gracefully hypnotic ebb and flow as only such a lustrous fabric knows how. They are indisputably as resplendent as they are flattering too. A firm and tangible sense of opulence; as if one were of royal Medici blood.
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 but 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. Or my new glasses from Glasseslit. A classically transcendent style that perhaps a modern day Marie Antoinette would embrace with fervor. 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 that much more effortless. Something which has unbelievably taken me many years to embrace, despite a drastic need for improved vision. And if you also find yourself in a similar situation Glasseslit need to be on your radar. There is an impressive collection of both optical frames and sunglasses, 1000+ styles starting at $9.90 and a 100% satisfaction with excellent customer service. Making the transition to optics hassle-free. Or if you’re simply in the market for new glasses, the affordability of Glasseslit is one not to be passed.
