Be Still My Bleeding Heart

"Heaven-taught, the maiden loves, the poet sings.
Dear bleeding heart, poor broken wings!
So has it ever been through all the years,
For song the sorrow, for love the tears."
~ John Vance Cheney

Natalie B Coleman's SS15 collection, entitled 'Be Still My Bleeding Heart' is one of my favourites of all her wonderful collections. Inspired by the sad loss of her Mother, the Sacred Heart, dreamy Summer days and romance, the collection is feminine, poignant, and playful, with "a bit of Guns n' Roses attitude in there".

I've already blogged about a very beautiful white dress from this collection (see here) and I am delighted to add this very cool slogan tshirt to my little blog. The tee has a relaxed fit and features the name of the collection across the front. Each letter is made of clusters of red rose petals; this beautiful rose screen print can be seen on a number pieces in Natalie's beautiful collection.

I styled my cool tee with a great, green skirt from Chloe's diffusion line, See by Chloe; described as being girly, delicate & feminine, their designs are aimed at the girl who likes to be seen as ladylike, and a little bit naughty. I like that. I like that a lot.

Truly Pink & Really Sweet

"Truly pink and really sweet
Is this gorgeous flower.
Nothing can glow as much as this sweet pink flower,
So nice, so true, and so pink
Eternal it is in presence.
Sweet and pink is the glorious nature of this flower.
The end is never to be, since this shining organism will never perish.
There are gentle words for this special beauty"
~ Rohit Sapra

The 'Mila' leather tee is one of my favourite pieces by Emma Manley. I have it in a number of different colours (blogged here and here), and I am sure I will get even more of them, as they have definitely become a staple in my wardrobe.

Manley's leather t-shirts are probably the most comfortable, easy to wear tops I have ever owned; I can throw one on with a pair of denim shorts in the summer months, layer with a chunky knit in Winter, or team with a pretty skirt or skinny jeans and heels for a glamorous night out. 

The bottom panels of the leather t-shirt are cut from soft perforated leather that moves like fabric. The top panels have not been perforated so sit slightly more firmly. Gathering at the top of the sleeve adds a soft feminine touch, and a scalloped hemline and visible zip running all the way down the back bring a cool, edgy vibe.

I paired my tee with one of Manley's gorgeous leather collars. The handmade collar takes the top to a whole different level of glam. The styling potential is just endless for a gem like this!  I finished my look off with classic skinny jeans, and towering heels. The neutral Louboutins and cognac coloured Nadia Minkoff bag really compliment the delicate, baby pink shade of the top.
