Kamola S/S 2011
Last Saturday I was invited by Kamola & LilaBoutique.co.uk to a preview of Spring / Summer looks in Kensington.
The Creative Director and Founder of Kamola, Kamola Malikova, was on hand to talk about her pieces; her inspiration; and take personal orders for her made to measure S/S 11 looks. Champagne, Canapés and shopping… what better way is there to spend a Saturday?!
I have included some of my favourite looks from the Kamola Spring / Summer collection below. Striking graphic prints, divine lemon yellow and seductive lace will make for a sophisticated summer. My absolute favourite look is the white high-waisted A-line skirt, grey lace top and pink cape! So dramatic, feminine and chic xx
Also at the event were some gorgeous dresses by Laundry Room and Butter By Nadia. The photos of the red Butter By Nadia look are actually all of the same dress! This ‘one size fits all’ dress in rayon jersey wraps, twists and drapes around the body to create endless styles! It’s amazing! And the two cute dresses below by Laundry Room are both so cute and so reasonably priced at only £50.00! I want the colourful one! You can buy all of these looks from www.lilaboutique.co.uk…
Some Of My Favourite Things…
It’s nearly winter time in London and the temperatures just keep on dropping. Trying to fight those ‘mean reds’ (as Holly Golightly so elegantly puts them in Breakfast At Tiffany’s), I am often in search of cute, delicious or simply beautiful things to make me happy on cold afternoons.
Here are a few of the things that are keeping me warm, sweet and smiling this autumn… xx
What is making you happy right now? xx
