Palette #2


Another quick snapshot of Milly's evolving colour palette... New pieces have continued to arrive in small but steady drops and the resulting range is very enticing, to say the least. Garments above are by Millicent select secondhand, Birgitta Helmersson, Elizabeth + Birgitta, Penny Sage, Chorus, Limb, Romance Was Born and *three* labels new to the store - Anya TamOvna Ovich and Pulka; the large lively scarves are by Monster Alphabets and the beanie/glove combinations are by Penelope Durston, of course (not all colours now available are pictured here).

This month's Instagram theme was COLOUR ... because the colours of garments destined for the shop this Autumn (and any season) play on the mind ... Even more than I anticipate the new styles, I anticipate the changing of colours, and can hardly wait to see certain colours in person. It is always pleasing and puzzling [...]

In store only (pt. two)

Black. Hard to photograph (apologies for the crummy images) but very easy to adopt. Lots of people suggest to us that they wear too much black. I understand that feeling but I also just think - *shrug*, roll with it. Black is beautiful. Evidence above by Temps Perdu, Chorus, ffiXXed, Raggatt and Kuwaii. All of these pieces [...]

Introducing Djur.

The latest additions to the online shop include sale items by Soot., Chorus and Raggatt, as well as beautiful A/W dresses by Djur - which is pronounced something like "yoo-oor" with a very, very soft (perhaps quite silent) 'D', and no 'J' please. Djur is the newest label to join Milly Sleeping. We are very pleased to [...]
