Another Huw Roman piece coming at you today! (click here
incase you missed the first piece!) Envision a unique, upscaled upgrade to the everyday shirtdress, and you’ve got this gorgeous lightweight beauty!
This is the Raglan Shirt Dress, made from a beautiful material called ‘oxijewel’ developed by one of Japan’s most reputable fabric makers, Toray. It’s extremely lightweight which makes it super comfortable alongside being super practical because a) loads of room to move within, and b) pockets!!
It’s also got a bit of a ballooning bulge if you will (in a good way!) which gives it this voluminous elegance as you walk. Super intentional lol as the bulge falls vertically rather than out from the side in order to provide that depth effect!
Absolutely in love with the sleeves on this; the bulge effect carries into the sleeves a tad, tapering down into a thickish cuff which is beaut!

I had other plans for this Zara dress, something along the lines of massive turban, rolled up sleeves and trainers, maybe some denim?! but then the lovely Manal (@chinutay) sent me a few scarves from her collection (@chinutayco) (which are oh so beautiful by the way!) and I got super excited to put something together as an excuse to wear one *insert shy monkeyface emoji*
This is actually the first time I’ve ever been gifted or sent scarves by a brand/company, and maybe rightfully so because I’m quite particular with what goes on my head in terms of material, length etc. haha but eep, these are perfect! They’ve got the right amount of stretch and more than enough material to work with! Manal’s packaging is also super cute and personalized with a handwritten message and sprayed with her signature scent which smells divine mashallah x Haven’t experimented using them as turbans yet but uber excited to do so! I’ve got ‘Jaipur’ on me head which had me reminiscing about a recent trip to India which led to me going through photos, prompting a sit down of a potential Mumbai post coming at you real soon inshallah! xoxo
P.S – THE DRESS HAS POCKETS GUYS!
How beautiful is this marbled liliaiya piece?! I’ve been in love with their designs for ages and have kinda sorta rinsed a piece from a previous collection, so was super excited when this came through the post! It’s one of those pieces which exude a unique chicness and can be dressed both up or down; I’m thinking skinny denim, red trousers, even a foil print skirt?! Definitely check them out here and find them on instagram (@liliaiyastudio) Thank you lovelies! xoxo
