Sarah Pacini is a designer that I want to bring to your attention, because her pieces are so unique and beautiful. Not only are her clothes perfect for anyone with a skin disorder such as psoriasis, they are perfect for anyone who is looking for something a little bit different.
Whilst I am as big a fan of the high street as the next person (frankly, the budget dictates it must be so!) there are always occasions when I am happy to splurge a little extra or when I want something a little more unusual. Whilst the colour palette includes a lot of black, this is balanced by a large quantity of taupes, light greys, camels and whites. In general the tops, which are used as a base to build on, are fitted but then the rest of the outfit tends to be unstructured and can be draped in a number of different ways. The whole collection can be mixed and matched according to how much coverage you need.
I first came upon the Sarah Pacini range four years ago, when I was looking for an outfit for The Child’s Communion. Although, courtesy of a sun holiday, my arms were clear enough to go on show, my legs alas, were not. This range allowed me to work around these issues and despite the coverage, I still felt I was appropriately dressed for a sunny day in May. For your amusement I have attached a picture of me from that day, grinning gormlessly. Note the umbrella … the day started with drizzling rain which, thankfully for our plans of an alfresco lunch, turned into a scorcher by lunchtime. For me the most noticeable thing about this photograph is the wide legged trousers. Were skinnies the trouser shape of choice in May 2009? If so, I clearly didn’t have my finger on the fashion pulse!
The Sarah Pacini range is available in a range of boutiques, details of which can be found on her website, www.sarahpacini.com. The Spring collection has just hit the stores (but despite intensive searching, I can’t find any of it online) and I would urge you to take a look if you have an occasion coming up. And for the record, this post was not sponsored in any way. I simply wanted to offer you an option that might help in your quest for Spring or Summer outfits.
See you on Wednesday
