A Message from the Kingdom!
The Kingdom of Style that is...
KOS is one of my favorite fashion blogs (I've definitely mentioned it before). Run by the lovely Queens Michelle and Marie and based out of Glasgow, Scotland I really enjoy the mature and thoughtful take on fashion that they present. Michelle posts during the week and has a dark, minimal yet intricate aesthetic and is known for her outfit posts, while Marie posts on the weekends and gives us wonderfully dreamy and whimsical posts on anything from tea parties and chandeliers to jewelry and art exhibitions. Driven by personal taste, rather than strictly trends, these two put me into a wonderful fashiony happy mood.
Recently I was inspired by THIS POST by Queen Michelle to start making some super luxe style leggings (which I posted about HERE recently). Since Michelle was truly the inspiration for this mini collection, I thought it would be a great idea to surprise her and send her a couple of pairs. With the help of Queen Marie I procured her address and popped a secret package in the mail.
Well, it's arrived and I'm happy to say that the leggings fit like a glove and Michelle was happy enought to immediately throw them on and come up with some beautiful outfits with. Of course they look amazing on her, I mean, have you seen this girls legs, there's really actually no way they could NOT look good on her...it's practically science. And yes, she's aware she bears a striking resemblance to Irina Lazareanu.
ALSO, in pure coincidental fun-ness, KOS also just did a post on Montreals very own Valerie Dumaine! It appears Valerie has cracked the UK market by selling her wares in the online shop Coco Career. Michelle ran into her new leatherette jacket on the site, and the rest is history.
