In the past, I probably never would have thought that pairing a t-shirt with a pleated chiffon maxi skirt was a good idea but recently I’ve been updating the categories I mentally assign clothing to.
I wanted a comfortable but striking outfit to attend a friend’s birthday drinks and this was definitely a hit.
The wedge trainers perfectly marry the contrasting elements and the accessories add the right amount of edge.

It’s exciting to finally be able to share images from the Vaguard collection. I started working on the first items 3 years ago and bought new machines and learned new processes on the road to its completion.
To make this collection extra special, we have teamed up with designer, Richard Ayres , who developed a range of unique chainmail elements and jewellery, add an elegant touch of toughness to the range.

To celebrate the launch of this collection, I’m offering 25% off till midday GMT on Tuesday the 16th of June. This is a large percentage for a small, independent label so I hope you take advantage of it while it’s on.
Every so often, I feel compelled to create some images of my own. It could be to experiment with a new hair or makeup look, find the right setting for a new product I’ve created, or bring to life an image that popped into my head.
This time it was “all of the above” and I shot a couple of images featuring my “Freya” crop top, moth necklace and butterfly head piece.
I also shot a new image for the “moth girl” t-shirt, as the previous one didn’t really inspire me.
I continued the set with a set featuring my dog, Charlie, which I will post next time.

To give my customers a summer treat and help fund some exciting upcoming projects, I’ve decided to offer 20% off most of the products on my website for the next week.
I have gathered my top picks from the sale to help you with some suggestions:
I’d also love to hear what your favourite items in the sale are!
I wanted to put together a little board showing some of the affordable gifts available through my website. Usually, people who have seen my clothes automatically assume that everything I sell is expensive. This isn’t true, my products have a very low mark up compared to other companies, some of them just happen to be quite labor-intensive. I like creating elaborate outfits but also understand there is beauty in simplicity and a cute piece to finish off an outfit can be uncomplicated and inexpensive while still looking great.
I created Eustratia to make my vision accessible to customers of all budgets and feel like I’m well on the way to achieving that.
