Pretty In Pink
As style icon Audrey Hepburn once said: ‘I believe in pink…’
From the lightest loveliest pastel to delicious vivid shades of candy – pink always packs the perfect punch.
This coming Spring / Summer season, many Designers have embraced this charming tone – perfect for a sweet Summer romance. Not too girly and not too precious – pink is bold, optimistic and arrestingly alluringly.
From Yves Saint Laurent to Ralph Lauren, Chanel to Prada – pink enlivens the senses and evokes a nostalgic sweetness. My favourite though, the bold, bright shade of candy at Valentino – delectable enough to eat!
On the runway, pink was worn with black to add a toughened edge to this adorable tone. Or why not be daring and simply wear pink from head to toe…

The Little Lace Dress
‘Love Miranda. Love Lace. Love Lover.’
You may recall I posted about the Lover, Spring / Summer 2011 collection here – with its red-hot lace and delicately, whimsical allure. It was one of my favourites! So you should have seen my excitement, when one of my top models – Miranda Kerr – stepped out in not one, but two of the most iconic little lace dresses from the collection! Love Miranda. Love Lace. Love Lover.

(little lace dress)
The little lace dress is a style statement. Feminine, elegant and sophisticatedly sexy; it can take you from day (wear with sweet ballet flats) to evening glamour in an instant (simply add polished heels and go).
From Erdem to Lover, Stella McCartney and Marchesa, amongst others – lace has undoubtedly made a return to the catwalk in recent seasons. Fresh, refined and sweet – the new use of lace is all about polished beauty. Iconic white or black lace dresses are très chic; while those in strong statement hues, such as blood red, are irresistibly charming.
