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.

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.
