I found the perfect setting to shoot this beach-cross-bohemian outfit so finally, my photos aren't set on the street in front of my house. True fact that this Miss Unkon piece is the first maxi skirt I own, hence in that sense, I'm a bit of a virgin. Although, it's safe to say that my very first long garment has been welcomed into my wardrobe with great pride. 

Firstly, because of the unique patchwork mix of textures. What I mean by that is; this skirt isn't a banal one material piece, instead it has subtle peek-a-boo inserts of delicate lace (which I already managed to rip a bit... oops). I decided to reinforce its breezy and carefree attitude by pairing it with a white lace crop top from Paint It Red and some Navajo inspired accessories. Since the maxi is pretty high-waisted, I figured a crop top would show just the right amount of skin without crossing the vulgar line. 

Secondly, I was so excited upon realising the skirt was by Miss Unkon which is a label that's quickly crawling up my list of favourites. Their 'dreamlike and creative storytelling' aesthetic reflects such a youthful, feminine but also unconventional vibe. Many of their designs are very original (I haven't seen anything similar to this maxi dress) and combined with their high quality fabrics, this label is definitely one to watch. Fingers crossed that I get accepted as press into Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in order to view their newest collection on the runway.
