End of Summer Sale - Super Savings on Exclusive Silks

While it is officially still summer, there are signs of the approaching change of seasons! We experienced a bit of rain (drizzle) at the Silverton Fine Art Festival last weekend, and the temperatures have thankfully recovered from the record highs we were having earlier this month. 

Since it's nearly time for back to school in most regions, I thought we'd offer a sale on some of our seasonal items, like the silk flowers on vintage lattice ribbon, these are great for wearing in your hair, or around your neck, and the wee young girls can even wear them as a belt!

Summer Sale by Joyflower
We've got a combination of spring accessories and fall/winter one of a kind items plus timeless hand painted silks that you can score at great prices. Like this fabulous faux mink and brocade muffler. 
Faux Mink & Brocade Scarf
And this stunning shibori silk bias-cut gown, the bias cut has a figure perfecting effect, flowing over your curves with a lovely drape, it fits like a dream! All our hand painted silks are washable by hand or may be dry cleaned if you prefer. 
Copper Shibori Gown
This orchid silk rose is one of a kind, remaining from our Spring Romance Collection. The rayon lattice ribbon is woven through with a vintage rayon bias ribbon and festooned with a luxe jacquard rose with a vintage bakelite earring at the center. I had a box of costume jewellery from my grandmother that I was hoarding, and this year, I decided to use the elements in some new fashion accessories! 
Vintage Rose Headband
Soft mint green jacquard silk rose is attached to a vintage rayon lattice ribbon, which is laced with pretty chocolate bias ribbon and antiqued brass chain is finished with a gorgeous faceted chrysoprase bead. 
The accessories featured in our Summer Sale are classic and wearable plus extremely versatile! Have fun with fashion! Use your imagination to inspire your wardrobe, try something new and enjoy the compliments when you tie on a new fashion accessory by Joyflower!!

Colour can't be touched, but it can touch us. It can't be felt, but it an change the way we feel. Try describing a colour and you can only describe the things we associate with it! But despite not being a tangible physical thing, like our clothes or shoes are, colour is key to the world of fashion. It's one of the visual clues that helps define a season!
