All About The Shorts

After a fantastic vacation to the States, I’m back and missing being able to throw on a pair of shorts everyday. Sunshine and friends- oh how I miss you all! Anyway, I thought I would share with you a pair of my favourite shorts from Zara. Unfortunately, i’m not sure how I feel about the high waisted shorts which are in this summer, I guess it all depends, I feel I would perhaps need to extend my legs a couple of inches to get away with them but here is a nice alternative:

Although I am guilty for being a slight shopoholic, I think shoes are my major weakness. I love the Women’s shoes at Kurt Geiger Summer Shoes   KG style, especially their spring/summer collection. I bought a lovely pair of yellow KG shoes featured below, which I wore when I attended London fashion weekend. These look great as they have a delicate ankle strap with pretty blue crystal studs and the heel is not too high. Mostly, I love the variety which can be found at KG, they offer an array of shoes from flats to wedges to high heels to really high heels! Don’t forget to check out their sale currently on! The next pair of KG shoes on my list are the purple gloria wedges. Be sure to take a look and let me know what your next KG buy will be?

spring fashion- highland adventure

 

 

With the winter weather finally leaving us, its time to celebrate the warmer climate. Time to lose the tights!! I was wondering when this was going to be acceptable, i’ve decided now is the time and I couldn’t be happier. These are some snaps from the highlands, enjoying the warm air even while the sun goes down. Love this green dress from Topshop, it hangs loosely and comes to just the right length, just above the knee. I paired this with a white 3 quarter length top with ankle socks and boots. With chunky jewellery being a key item in any outfit, I chose this tribal necklace to add a little extra. What’s your favourite look for this spring?

London Fashion Weekend

London Fashion weekend is a fashion bloggers dream. With everyone dressing to impress and rooms filled with designer clothing and fantastic discount rates… what more could you ask for… Well, I can tell you there is more! A catwalk show featuring one of our favourite designers, Holly Fulton, displaying some beautiful prints and colours for SS12. The catwalk was presented by Zoe Hardman, featuring tips from Toni and Guy on the latest hair styles and Elizabeth Arden with the new lipstick colours for Spring. A special interview took place on the catwalk with Hilary Alexander, discussing her favourite parts of London Fashion Week, particularly mentioning Stella McCartney’s show which featured Alexa Chung being hypnotized and levitating above razor sharp swords. Hilary exclaims it’s no longer just about the fashion, but about performance art, and really giving guests a great show. What a great way to really let people remember your collection, giving guests that little bit more. This was made clear with a number of designers who put on a performance. (I will leave that for another post). Back to LFWend, Somerset House was the perfect location to hold this grand event, hours passed without noticing, with so much to see, this was definitely a weekend to remember!

Chanel SS12 Collection

Starting with the one and only, Chanel. For me this collection was stunning and well executed onto the catwalk, although many seemed a little perplexed with the theme, confusing it with an underwater- winter land, which for a SS12 collection seems a little askew . To me, it exuberates everything that is Chanel, changing the most common of things into something a little more luxurious.

The theme beautifully flowed throughout the collection; highlighting the soft neutral tones, eye catching opal scales and pearl belts.

As if the collection wasn’t enough,  Chanel ended with Florence Welch from the extremely popular Florence and the machine, singing in a beautiful full length Chanel gown. Wow!

Versace Collections SS12

We are opening our website with the fashion designer who is taking the high street and high end shoppers by storm. Yes.. its Versace! With the huge success of their first collaboration with H&M back in November 2011, they have once again thrilled fashion fans with a 2nd collection. Both ranges brought out, sold out within the matter of a couple of hours. The first collection was a plethora of prints and brights, definitely featuring some ‘must have’ pieces. While the cruise collection is more in touch with the pastel colours of spring, featuring a fruity, playful print. Although a lovely collection, perhaps timing is a little off. With the snow still falling across many parts of europe, bikinis and shorts are a little far from thought. Nevertheless you cannot fault Versace’s design. Looking at the SS12 collection for Versace, you can see a similar number of items which resemble that of the first collaboration done with H&M. The sexy, studded collection is bang on trend at the moment, Gisele Bundchen can be seen modeling the SS12 collection, looking absolutely fabulous. If you haven’t checked any of collections out… Where have you been?!! It’s a must see and must have.
