If there’s one brand right now that’s going to undo my savings goal it’s We Are Handsome. If you haven’t heard of this amazing Australian brand yet then I suggest you click here ASAP!
Created by Indhra Chagoury and Jeremy Jules, the brand is pretty much wearable art. The digital prints on their dresses, one-pieces and bikinis are unlike any other I have seen before. Plus, not only are the prints are high quality, but the materials they use are absolutely fantastic.
I first discovered the brand through a local boutique in Townsville called Jaxx. During my exam study boredom I discovered a picture on Jaxx’s Facebook page of a dress (by We Are Handsome) with hot air balloons on it (The Dreamer mini dress) and was instantly gobsmacked by it. After commenting on the photo to find out where the dress was and if my size was kicking around I immediately drove to the boutique to find it. You might think I’m kidding, but I’m not. I left the house early in the opposite direction to where I was headed purely to search for a dress that may or may not have looked good on me or may not have been in my size. Luckily that was not the case. What really interested me was the fact the dress was made out of similar material to that of a good bikini. If you read any of my previous posts or tweets you’ll already know that I bought the dress then and there. While finding underwear to wear under the dress due to its pale colour was initially a challenge, I had so much fun wearing the dress that it made it all worthwhile.
The material was on of the reasons wearing We Are Handsome’s dresses are great. I live in an extremely hot and humid city and while it’s only the start of the heat I didn’t get too hot and sweaty dancing crazily through the night.
So my reaction to reading Jaxx’s Facebook status about new We Are Handsome landing in store: I jumped in my car and drove straight there. It was a difficult decision but I ended up putting a dress on lay-by. I chose The Showman mini dress over The Anchorage (which is also amazing). Infact The Anchorage print is so fabulous I may need to consider investing (yes, investing) in the one-piece bikini version of the print. I plan on wearing my lovely Showman dress out on NYE and I should (keyword) be the only one wearing the dress considering Jaxx only got one of the print in. I’m so excited to wear it and I’m already planning how to accessorise it!
