Volpe

Volpe

The Volpe Silk Blouse is a study of classic lines and silky goodness. A silky sculpty prim kittybow atop a dangerously proper blouse fit to perfection. She lurks behind horn rimmed glasses, perhaps a trademark of her librarian days. And shes still on top of her game, although older and classier among her peers. The Volpe Silk Blouse is quite a successful prowess, a little minx, seducing your skin with its supple ripples. Comes in a plethora of colours, it features a sculpted prim kittybow, sculpted sleeves and prim cuffs. In both shirt and jacket layers. Available only at Casa del Shai.

Siobhan Steps Out

Scuttling insistently around town, a flustered Siobhan settles in her seat at the cafe. She orders an espresso, whips out her pen and notepad. “What are you doing today?” she writes. A blase blank page stares at her, sneering at her loss for words. Siobhan stares longingly at the other people at the cafe, busily jabbing away at their berries. “Oh darn, life without online social networking is such a pain.” she moans.

The Siobhan Dress, a dollop of a ladylike elegance amidst a tech-ridden, trend-laden society. This new release is inpired by fall winter’s plaid, subdued into a pencil skirt and a bustier topped with sheer chiffon lace. Comes in four tartan variants. Only at the Casa del Shai.

A Nightingale Sang…

…There was magic abroad in the air.
There were angels dining at the Ritz,
And a nightingale sang…

Welcome the new year with a toast to lounge singer 40s glamour. Presenting this year’s first releases for the real song birds of the night.

The Baroque Gown
The Baroque Gown is inspired by the period of decadence and grandeur. The swirls and folds of the goddess silhouette, highlighted with coque feathers evoke a feeling of exuberance. Dipped in turquoise green, this gown fits well into classical ballroom parties you graced as the countess.

The Baroque Gown

The Rococo Gown
Ornate in gold and blue, the Rococo Gown is a magnificent piece of emphatic yet restrained styling. With a simple low cutout on the front, and a long train of gold filigree skirt, this is a light hearted modern take on the Versailles‘ pompous ballgowns. Also trimmed with coque feathers on the hem.

The Rococo Gown
The Coquette Dress
Elegant yet innocent, a little avante garde with peekaboo coque feathers beneath the hem. The Coquette Dress is inspired by the classic 40′s lounge dresses. Its not just the frou frou rose colour that endears her to her amorous suitors, its the way satin smoothes over her long skirt. A perfect party dress to start the year with flirtatious laughter and sweet affections.

The Coquette Dress

It was such a romantic affair.
And as we kissed and said goodnight,
A nightingale sang at the Casa..
