I cannot thank God enough for the arrival of Aris Geldis Paris jewelery and Antonia Goy's garments. We are lucky enough to be her first and only stockist in Australia. This is her AW11 collection which means the garments are on our shelves at the same time, if not before, they are on the shelves of their European stockists.

Here are some piecies of Aris Geldis' jewelry to bedazzle you... They're all made from gold or silver plated brass and Swarovski crystals.

The earrings are my favourite =) The gorgeous dresses are by Spijkers en Spijkers and the silicon belts are from Alldressedup.

I gave you a preview of the cape in my last post on Antonia. But here are the pieces in the 'flesh'. All the garments are made in Germany. I have never come across clothes made in Germany before, except maybe for some exquisite vintage pieces. All the black dresses, leggings and capes are made from wool or wool jersey. They are so wearable and warm. The gorgeous printed kaftan dresses are made from silk georgette.

This is my favourite look - the cape is paired with Karla Spetic's velvet skirt and the mannequins is adored with an exquisite necklace made from real Swarovski crystals (they're huge!) by Aris Geldis Paris. She looks demure, classy. Simple elegance, in a nutshell.

The mannequin on the left is clothed in one of Antonia's stunning silk georgette creations, in rabbit print- can you see the rabbit head on the chest? The print of the dresses are in perfect symmetry. One is sure to stand out in the crowd and attract many many admiring glances in one of these creations. The dress can be worn belted, layered or free and flowing.

The black dress is 'lined', front and back. There are more lines on the back and when one moves in the dress, the lines dance. The mannequin on the right is also wearing a neck piece by Aris Geldis paris.

Here's a close up =)

Antonia's pieces are limited. Our capes were sold out within a week! I was going to wait some time until I purchased the Ruffle dress but I didn't want to miss out again! So here it is, in the flesh..

I've paired it up with stockings with bows and Repetto booties. On my first day of wearing these booties, I stood for 10 hours straight. These French heels are the most comfortable shoes I own. The necklace is a vintage favourite.

Whoever is lucky enough to own anything made by her will attract many 'compliments-per-wear.' I cannot wait to see Antonia at Fashion week in Paris and try on her new collection!
