Frill Factor


I’d like to think I’m an all thrills no frills sorta girl, but then I met my match in this brilliant coat by Kym Ellery. Kym has a very modern approach to womenswear -not only is it extremely wearable, but each piece feels personal and unique. The Ellery woman is full of contrast and juxtaposition, like so many of us. This coat is a perfect case and point – the oversized blazer, something so emblematic of male power, feminized by exaggerated, almost tentacle like frills. This woman’s got humor and I love that – in a sea of homogenized luxury brands shelling out same-same every season, I’m always looking for those items that tell a story.

Thank you to Ellery for dressing me this season!
