A Little Bit Of Sparkle

I remember poking through fabric shops in Melbourne when I was about 11 with my mother, searching for material to decorate my tutus with. Baby Heidi had only one pre-requisites for the fabric: it had to sparkle.

There were french laces embroidered with seed pearls, rolls of raw silk glittering with diamantΓ©s galore and the most decadently coloured, sequin encrusted brocades. I’d pushed fabrics like this firmly into the “ballet costume” basket, until I started noticing Alannah Hill turning these sorts of embellished materials into dresses.

Whenever something like this appears in their collection, I covert it. I think it’s rare to find dresses featuring such beautiful decoration that aren’t reminiscent of a high school formal gown. They almost have a 1920’s vibe, a modern-day Gatsby dress, and I can see them paired with a faux fur stole for an ultra glamorous look, or with more casual accessories for more versatility.

Either way, it’s hard to go wrong with such a special dress that adds a little bit of a sparkle to a girl’s wardrobe.

  1. what a wonderful look..the flower embellishments and matching earrings. Something about it reminds me of something Parisienne. Whimsical. -Zaychishka
