Olive Loves: Mark Fast Sandstorm Crocheted Dress

There are dresses… and then there are dresses that absolutely thrill – gorgeous, sumptuous numbers, that once donned, will make a gal feel like a queen.

This utterly amazing golden crocheted dress by designer Mark Fast is one of the latter – a stunning, shimmering, gilded wonder that makes me just swoon each time I look at it.

Imagine wearing this at a dark and smoky speakeasy or on the nightclub stage or out on the town – flapping the fringe and showing some leg and kicking up your heels like the dance floor darling you are!

Mr. Fast is a Canadian boy done good in London, England, a tremendously talented gent who designs clothes for fabulous folks like Rhianna and such. But  even if you are not a pop star my dears, you can at least look like one, (and be one in your own mind!) when you’re wearing a dress like this.

Wow!  Just – wow.

 

Olive Goil: Elizabeth Lau

I am always so inspired by young and talented gals doing wonderful things. Those that I seem to have inspired, myself, especially inspire me!

Round and round it goes! Please remember, dear sisters, that it is very, very important that gals lift one another up, celebrate each other and help one another be the best they can be.

That is why I am so thrilled to see that little old me served, in some way, as artistic ‘oomph’ for the new collection by the London fashionista Elizabeth Lau.

An “It Girl” of the highest order, Miss Lau’s lovely, ladylike clothing has become nothing less than a cult sensation in London circles and beyond. An enthusiast for vintage style and with an unabashed adoration of teacups and sugar cakes and all things girly girl – Miss Lau’s work has a whimsical touch, a flirty simplicity and an apple-cheeked sweetness.

Check out her latest collection below and tell me – does it remind you of a certain someone?
