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

It’s time to renew your Country Club Membership…
With the warmer weather fast approaching (in the Northern Hemisphere at least), embrace a leisurely Summer spent playing tennis & lying by the pool.
Take your cue from the Spring / Summer 2012 collections, where Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney and Christopher Kane, showed effortless daytime dressing with a preppy pop.
Rewrite poolside dress codes with sweet matching short sets (think of Stella McCartney’s red gingham shirt, shorts and matching accessories – pictured above). Meanwhile at Christopher Kane, the classic tennis outfit was given a modern yet romantic reinvention – the skirt was made of darling pearlescent fabric giving it a fresh, feminine air. At Tommy Hilfiger, the classic houndstooth print experienced a colour overhaul and was teamed with unexpected chunky knits and bold horizontal stripes.
Statement accessories complete the preppy look. Oversized sunglasses and tote bags in bright colours and prints will certainly turn heads by the pool & add a little summer sizzle…
Will you give the preppy look a workout for Summer? xx

Out Of Africa
Isabel Lucas becomes wild at heart for Vogue Australia’s December issue.
Meerkats and bunnies get me every time for their adorable sweetness. It was the above shot of Isabel Lucus surrounded by meerkat cuteness that first captured my attention. Her wardrobe mix of ladylike chic and electric prints kept me hooked.
Shot in the Kalahari Desert by Max Doyle, Isabel Lucas shines in looks from Prada, Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Tommy Hilfiger and more. With a slight 60’s edge, I adore the Prada cotton blend coat and sweet check dress (pictured below). I especially adore the Louis Vuitton hatbox! Timeless perfection!
p.s. Now planning a trip to Africa just to sit amongst those adorable meerkats!
Happy Sunday! xx
