  • My Fat Gypsy Wedding

    Oh my goodness! If you’re looking for some Merengue wedding dress inspiration for you wedding day, you have to watch the reality TV series that has gripped the nation. My Fat Gypsy Wedding focuses on this one special day that these girls (travelers) literally become princesses for one day. The bigger and brighter the dress, the better. So bazaar, yet so intriguing. I have yet to see a bright pink wedding dress at any of the wedding events I have attended, thank goodness! Click through to view more pics from the show.

  • Prince William & Kate’s First Royal Tour

    I am admiring Kate’s style more and more. On their first royal tour together the couple look so relaxed and at ease with each other. Every single dress that Kate has worn has been a success. Her dress choices have been modern sleek cuts, all very similar, but what makes each dress so great is her choice in colour and print. My absolute best is the green dress she wore on her visit to LA, designed by Diane von Furstenberg. I am dazzled by green at the moment. Divine! Click through to view more of her dress choices.

  • The Nude Colour Shoe

    I have been seeing a lot of Nude colour shoes on the catwalks and the red carpet. Angelina Jolie and Kate Middleton are both favouring this trending colour high heel. I went to Aldo on the weekend and I must say half the range was in nude. For a season that is so bright and full in colour we aim to balance the look with new nude pigment. I do approve!

  • Street Style – LA

    The ditsy floral jumpsuit is still a must-have item and such an easy-to-wear piece. A plain black jumpsuit can be awesome to wear in winter with a warm fluffy jacket, ankle boots and a belt with gold trim buckle to show off the fabulous one piece iconic garment.

  • Fashion Trend: Tartan, Check and Plaid

    Winter is the perfect season to wrap yourself in a bright red tartan check scarf. A plaid boyfriend shirt is also a must have to be worn with black tights with denim shorts and biker boots. A check dress worn with high boots can be quite chic and Vivienne Westwood inspired. Very denim friendly and if you very confident head to toe check as seen below can be unique, stylish and fabulous.

  • Prince Harry’s Girlfriend

    Florence Brudenell-Bruce – who happens to also be his cousin. I am quite liking her fashionista vibe and thought you would too. Love the green leather jacket.

    Brudenell-Bruce’s connection to the royal family is through her relation to Sir Edward Walpole, the son of Britain’s first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole. Sir Edward’s daughter, Maria, married into the royal family.

    Florence Brudenell-Bruce is also the ex-girlfriend of Formula One driver, Jenson Button. The couple dated between 2006 and 2008, according to the report.

  • Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2011/2012

    The first collection designed by Dior’s creative director Bill Gaytten and his assistant Susanna Venega was presented this week at Paris Fashion Week. The sophisticated  collection was colourful and delightful. With everything being so bright at the moment in fashion, it was nice to see a softer palette of pastels being used. Amusing and eccentric prints were everywhere in the haute couture collection called ‘La Rose Moderne’. Stunning!

  • Street Style – LA

    So cute to wear little socks with kitten heel high heels. I have never done it before but so want to try. Took this picture in LA and I must remember to try it in summer. Love her vibe.

  • Turquoise

    This mixture of green and blue colour is a little calming and surreal. Known to be a tropical colour which reminds us of summer, but also a glow that can be worn to add balance and evoke some fun. It is a season of energetic bright colours and lots of colour blocking – turquoise was bound to follow to add to the mix. There are so many variations to go for! I must admit I am loving the way French Vogue shows it in their June issue, almost verging on a bright eggshell fluorescence colour. Too beautiful!

  • Today I Am Wearing

    I just cannot tell you how much I am in love with my Hunter Wellies. On a rainy day outside they are the perfect winter shoes, so don’t hold back and only wear them to a music festival. They are ultimate, practical and cool outdoor city shoes. I was so pleased that it was raining this past weekend, never before has jumping in a puddle been so fashionable.

  • Kate Moss And Her 15 Bridesmaids

    Kate Moss and Jamie Hince got married on the weekend and I am sure you have all been as excited as I was to see what Kate would choose to wear as a bride. Her close friend John Galliano designed the vintage style cream gown with her matching floor length veil. The dress was magnificent and so Kate-style. The much-anticipated gown had gold leaf embroidery with rhinestones and was cut on the bias which gave that gorgeous drape display on her slim body. Click through to view photo gallery.
