Be inspired by this iconic print in sweet silhouettes for a romantic Summer…

Channel the darling 50’s loveliness of Betty Draper and Lucille Ball in ‘pretty picnic’ gingham shirtdresses, sunning suits & even chequered pastel pumps.

From Jil Sander to Rochas, Tommy Hilfiger and more, the Spring / Summer 2011 collections were filled with pretty ginghams and sweet poplin pieces perfect for whimsical Summer dressing.

Adding a touch of ‘country club’ polish to your look, checks evoke an innocent yet sweetly seductive appeal. Interpreted in fresh, modern ways on the runway, checks in delightful pastel tones have a fresh yet nostalgic touch.

Will you call ‘checkmate’ on Summer dressing? xx

Some Like it Hot

This Week’s Editorial Love…

Channelling Marilyn Monroe’s classic style for Madame Germany’s February 2012 issue, Annabella Barber is every bit the darling 50’s vixen.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of Hollywood, California; Barber wears divine looks by Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Hermès and more. Love Barber’s dishevelled hair and bright red lip –  perfectly complementing the bold mix of prints and block colour. Charming accessories and some seriously gorgeous shoes complete the looks…

Enjoy some California dreaming! Happy Monday! xx
