“I would blow you a kiss from the star where I sat,
I would call out your name to echo through the vast.
Thank heaven for you and to God, tip my hat,
From here to the moon and back.
And I'll spend forever just proving that fact,
From here to the moon and back”
~ Willie Nelson
I fell deeply in love with every single piece in Rixo London's Autumn/Winter collection. I was already waiting with baited breath for next Summers offer from the brand, and was overjoyed to find out that they were launching an unexpected (for me anyway) Resort Collection before that, just in time for Christmas! I was even more overjoyed to discover that this collection would be their first to include their new extra-small and extra-large sizes. No more alterations required!
Embodying the season's East-meets-West mood, the kimono-inspired 'Iris' dress was my first dip into the Resort collection, and indeed my first try of the new sizes (XS is perfect for me!). Mini in length, the dress has a figure flattering wrap front, breezy bell sleeves, and a hand painted print of moons, clouds, and constellations that is outlined with white piping. It is absolutely dreamy, and perfect for the Holiday season.
I styled it with a very special coin necklace from Irish brand Chupi. The coin is cast from an original Irish farthing from the 1940’s that Chupi found in her grandmother’s sewing box. In the early 1920’s the first Irish coins were designed by a committee headed by the legendary poet W. B. Yeats. Renowned artist Percy Metcalfe was commissioned to design a series of beautiful coins inspired by Irish wildlife. This one is illustrated with a Woodcock, one of the most common birds in the West of Ireland.
