Hello Sunshine…

At the Critics’ Choice Awards gorgeous shades of vivid yellow were the real winners of the day.

All with sweet yellow accents – Diane Kruger in Prada; Elle Fanning in Rodarte; Elizabeth Olsen in Emilio Pucci; and Ahna O’Reilly in Honor –brightened the red carpet like little rays of sunshine.

And for Spring / Summer 2012 yellow is here to stay. In fact, it is one of the key power players. Perfect in little doses – accentuating your look with a picture perfect yellow clutch (see below) or why not unlock a high impact vault of sunlight with head-to-toe yellow.  

Some Friday Sunshine Inspiration…

Will you add a little ray of sunshine to your wardrobe? xx

A Pretty Bird… Tamu McPherson  

We all have our must-see sites. The ones we visit every day to get our fashion fix; feel inspired and further ignite our love of all things beautifully fashionable.

All The Pretty Birds is one such site which is right at the top of my check list.

Exquisite photography; a fine eye for detail; and a continuous stream of divine fashion – this street style blog is one with a difference.   

Based in Milan, Tamu McPherson (pictured above) is the lady behind the lens. Always choosing her subjects wisely, All The Pretty Birds has become an album of complete style and charisma.

From the chic streets of Milan to Fashion Weeks around the world; Tamu immortalises the timeless style of those around her, while capturing trends and unique beauty.  Tamu has captured behind her lens – Carine Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Kanye West, among countless others.  

Recently appointed the Fashion Director of the soon-to-be launched; Tamu has also started an online diary which is just as charming. Always ultra stylish, Tamu herself has been photographed by Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil. She has been featured on ; in several magazines (including; Vogue Nippon & Lucky Magazine) ; and was recently chosen as one of Versace’s favourite bloggers – attending and recording her experience at the Fall show on a Versace FlipCam.

The message from All The Pretty Birds…Humans express their personalities through fashion. There are those who go along with the grain and those whose roots grow outside the field. Wherever we fall on the fashion spectrum, we are all beautiful creatures. We are all pretty birds. T.M.P”
