Being Bookish Winter Inspiration

Being Bookish - Maiocchi's Winter 15 Collection

Write your own winter story in Maiocchi jerseys, Japanese cottons and fancy lace.

Being Bookish our Winter Collection, centers on a female lead.
She is ladylike, yet a little bit awkward.
She wears glasses and puts flowers in her hair. 
She loves cats and speaks French fluently. 
More than anything, this leading lady loves to read and as she does, the characters in the books come to life in her imagination. 

The characters, straight from the pages of a book, come to life in custom prints throughout the collection. Paper cranes, woodland owls, black cats and oriental blooms all play a part in the season’s patterns.

Being Bookish is all about darling frocks that you will certainly live happily ever after in.  Shop retro Winter Dresses, Tops and Skirts here.

When you are measuring yourself if possible do so in front of the mirror to ensure the tape measure is horizontally positioned around your body.

Hold the tape measure close against your body but not too tight

Tip: always wear the underwear you plan to wear with the garment

measure the fullest part of your bust ensuring the tape measure is even and horizontal at the back.

your waist is the smallest part of your torso; it is usually a few centimetres above your belly button. Wrap the tape measure around your waist, ensuring it is comfortable but not loose.

this measurement is taken at the widest part of your body. measure around the fullest part of your bottom or at the top of your thighs, which ever is widest. Make sure the tape measure is even and horizontal at the back.
