Styling it like a princess

Upon looking at this editorial for Revista Flash by Paulo Miguel Martins, we see how apt the title really is: Lost Little Princess. The King’s daughter wonders around her palace in the most regal and luxurious of fabrics; she’s being approached by a suitor tonight. Having tried a various amount of outfits, it isn’t her attire she is lost about, she’s not sure about him. She tries emerald green brocade trousers with a metallic kimono shaped jacket embellished with forest and jade crystals and sequins. She gets a time reminder, “you have 3 hours to go…” She goes into her powder room and tries on a marshmallow coloured lace dress with bronze beading; she adds a statement necklace and looks out the window onto the grounds beyond her.

When she walks into her closet she notices a black and gold thread embroidered, peplum top; she doesn’t pick it up. Next to her bed is a painting of her grandmother as a little girl; she ponders whilst inserting a jewel-encrusted piece into her hair. Maybe she should wear the skater dress in nude and gold with metallic Missoni-esque zigzag texture; her lady in waiting enters holding what looks like a wedding dress. The Princess is gob smacked, as she is dressed. She walks down the stairs in an almond coloured bustier dress with a meringue-like skirt, she wears her mothers statement necklace and cuff. She takes a deep breath and sits down on the grand staircase that may not be hers for very long.

A fashion magpie born and raised in London, Sabi Datoo studied English and Drama and now works in the wonderful world of fashion. Lusting over anything from interiors to jewellery as long as it's unique, when you don't find her infront of a keyboard plying her trade as a freelance fashion writer then it's likely you'll find her sitting at a sewing machine and dreaming of Carrie's fashion-Narnia wardrobe or in a kitchen trying her hand at Chanel inspired cupcakes. With a personal wardrobe that drips with colour and glitter, Sabi hopes to wake up and be Holly Golightly for the day. Every day.
