It’s a sleeve thing.

I have always had a bit of a sleeve thing. As a young teenager I recall perusing the aisles of the Victoria and Albert museum; observing intently the displays of some of the imaginative edwardian fashion. And so the romance began; I developed a deep fascination with the style from this era. I love the playful exaggerated statement sleeves to the classic elegant lace sleeves. I like the way the traditional female silhouette is distorted with bold sleeves and I really do believe it is having fun with style. I normally team statement sleeve blouses/dresses with simple or minimal jewellery and monochrome yet chic cigarette pants or jeans as I believe the sleeve is the focal point.
