Jewelled Collar in Snow

Hello! I'm Arabella, from my eponymously named blog, Arabella

I'm 21 and currently studying in the beautiful and inspiring city of Oxford. I've been an admirer of Dahlia's ladylike, elegant designs for quite a while now and already own several of their dresses, so I was absolutely head-over-heels with happiness when I received an email telling me that Dahlia had chosen me to be a Girlfriend for 2013! (In fact, I was out having sushi at the time and actually squealed with delight in the restaurant!)

When one of the lovely Dahlia ladies initially suggested that the Elodie Blouse might suit me, with it's beautifully structured shoulders and intricate collar embellishment, I knew it would be the perfect choice. I've already worn the Elodie Blouse several times as it's wonderfully easy to style in so many different ways. The material is light, meaning it transcends any season - in the colder months I'll be layering it with other pieces, and in the summer I'll look forward to wearing it alone in it's full glory (perhaps paired with a little sun hat!) Another positive is that the jewels on the collar are very sturdily attached, meaning I'm certainly not going to fear any dropping off on my travels - which can always be a bit of a risk when it comes to embellished pieces - but not with this one!


I'm so thankful to the lovely people at Dahlia for giving me this opportunity, I absolutely can't wait to style more Dahlia pieces!

  • I love the jewelled collar blouse, as with all Dahlia pieces they all look individual and beautifully designed.

  • That color is so lovely! I like that the light jewels are kind of unseen from a distance.
