Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…
All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.
While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.
And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…
Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

A fresh fashion optimism swept the Spring / Summer runways with shimmering sequins brightening up any gloomy day.
Sequins and beads add luscious texture and movement to beautiful bejewelled gowns. But don’t save these twinkling stars just for evening. During the shows girls were venturing out in shining sequins from head to toe, accompanied by countless bangles and trinkets. When it comes to sparkle this Summer think: the more the merrier.
Fashion should be fun, beautiful and inspiring. This pure bejewelled optimism is set to enliven every wardrobe with pretty sparkle.
At Elie Saab, languid silhouettes were embellished with rippling sequins for exquisite results. At Dolce and Gabbana the collection came to a close with the duo’s signature lace cocktail dresses, but this season they were encrusted to the hilt in colourful crystals. Pretty patterns and a rainbow of colours, created mesmerising show stopping gowns of twinkling beauty. While at Marc Jacobs a pretty bejewelled coat had unmistakable charm and a sweet glamorous appeal.
Will you shimmer and shine in sequins this Summer? xx

Mirror Mirror On The Wall, Who Is The Fairest Of Them All?
Sleek, shimmering Metallics…
High shine meets irresistible polish, with metallic looks so chic they exude effortless shiny style
Sublime when paired with minimal, clean-cut pieces, metallics add a gorgeous gloss to your look. Across the Spring / Summer 2012 runways, designers dipped their pieces in glistening gold and silver adding a rich texture and shining optimism.
Metallic accessories pack a punch. Wear with a crisp white shirt dress (a la Gianfranco Ferré); soft neutrals; or bold brights for startling panache. Metallics are the perfect exclamation point in your look. At Gianfranco Ferré metallic handbags and belts were daring against clean white; while at Yves Saint Laurent metallic detailing screamed of opulent allure.
High Gloss Embellishment
Head-to-toe shine stopped traffic at Hakaan and Gucci. Metallics added dazzling beauty and a modern edge to cocktail dresses and evening gowns. Pieces shimmered in ‘Mermaid-esque’ sequins for decedent dressing. At Gucci art deco inspired embellishment was polished, glossy and chic; while at Hakaan the classic white tee brought a fresh simplicity to a sequined pencil skirt.
