two spanish sisters
One of the shops in Spain I enjoyed shopping in, but did not buy anything from, was Bimba & Lola -- they sell a wide range of accessories and a smaller range of clothing. I found the clothing slightly pricey for the quality, but the styling is always an inspiration, and the designs are appealing.
I was happy to hear that they opened an outpost in Singapore, and popped by for a look today. Unexpectedly, I found a dress very much similar in cut to that fateful Luella dress, and at 40% off, it seemed like the call of fate once more.
It was lovely on, but even with the discount, I found it just a little expensive for the quality. The fabric is lovely and comfortable enough, but it's almost the same price as the Luella dress, and I'm pretty sure the Luella dress was of better make.
Is anything worth the design alone, with the actual quality being just acceptable? I can't decide.
(Anyway, I like the styling of the looks above and I think they are acceptable for the future office. Taking notes! I am becoming rather self-absorbed about the new job.)
(Title of the post refers to the two sisters the label is named for.)
