Klara of The Robot That Had a Heart
is multi-talented style blogger from Poland. I was already a big fan of her blog's enchanting photography narrative so was thrilled to see her style her Book of Deer Ramekin Jam Blouse in an adorable winter berry outfit.
I was even more flattered to read the kind words she had to say about Book of Deer, read below:
"I broke my no-shopping pledge this Christmas and got myself a blouse you can see in my last post. I decided to allow myself one purchase and knew I wanted to get something from Book of Deer, a brand I've been oohing and aahing at for years now --and when you don't shop at all, your wants kinda crystallize. I am so glad I went with it. Book of Deer is a wonderful brand created by the lovely Eilidh and residing in Hong Kong. Her designs are brought to life in a small Chinese factory under her watchful eye (check it out on her blog).
My blouse is of exquisite quality: french seams and bias bound seam allowances are not something you often see on ready to wear garments and to me, that just screams: attention to detail and focus on durability. Which is something which, as a sewer, I appreciate immensly. It is made of very high quality, super-soft polyester and while I usually steer clear of synthetic fibres because of my skin issues, the loose-fitting shape of this piece is going to make it ok to wear through all the seasons.
I find Book of Deer's very distinctive style alluring. I love how fresh Eilidh keeps all her silhouettes: they are classic with a retro twist thanks to all the quirky details like unexpected buttons and bows and ambroideries. All of her collections (of which you can see more on her Pinterest) are inspired by things slightly mysterious like deep sea or far north or little coutry house kitchens which she shapes into pieces that make me want to follow a path to an imaginary world where I could lose myself while exploring all the incredible sites. I am a huge fan of the Selkie&Seacollection (I'm so sad I was late to get the skirt with a ship on it!) and also the clothes pin dress of Kitchen Country is a dream. I was also looking to buy the I'm really happy with my Ramekin Jam top, though, it's just so cute!"
