I never thought Victoria Beckham would be this popular with her new fashion line and being a runway collection designer brand name.And what about Michelle Williams? I've seen the Marilyn movie and I wasn't very impressed.real Marilyn Monroe is more sexy honestly.But movie was pretty nice.Anyway,the Victoria dress is pretty simple and elegant for daywear.Pink color gets me more.

CATS ARE SO SWEET

Prettiest In Print

I’m a textile designer at heart so I have a bit of a soft spot for prints and am delighted to see them making such an impact this season.  They’re bold, and I mean BOLD!  From tropical to geometric to paisley and floral (giant, tiny and painterly) you won’t be able to get away from them, but why would you?!

With such a variety of prints to choose from this season, you may find it hard to decide what to go for, or how to wear it.  If you love prints like I do, then jump in with both feet and try a pair of printed trousers.  If you prefer to take it steady, then there are plenty of gorgeous accessories that will hit the spot.  A printed bag, or pair of floral pumps will nod to the trend with very little commitment.

Here are some of my favourite print pieces so far…
1. Hawaiian print skirt from Zara
2. Floral hair band from Primark
3. Jumpsuit from Dorothy Perkins
4. Leather jacket with shoulder detail from Miss Selfridge
5. Floral vintage look dress from Zara
6. Floral skinny jeans from Dorothy Perkins
7. Shoes from ASOS
8. Jacket from Zara
9. Shorts from ASOS

I love to mix my prints up, stripes and floral prints work brilliantly together, but I also like to throw leopard print into the mix too.  It's a great way to pull together your own take on the trend.  You need to be confident with your choices, sometimes it’s the prints that clash that make the best combination so wear them like they were meant to be together to avoid looking like you got dressed in the dark.  
  • If one colour features in both prints, this will help tie them together.
  • It helps if one of the prints is bolder than the other, otherwise they will compete for attention, and it’s unlikely to work.
  • Adding a belt in a colour that is featured in both prints is a great way to ensure they tie together perfectly. 
  • Try mixing different textures together; I like to mix silk and knitwear together for a different look.
  • Make sure you don’t get lost in the print, if it’s too bold for you, they’ll wear you rather than the other way round.
Here are some ideas...
























Whether you like to mix it up or prefer to keep things simple, the choice is huge out there.  I’m convinced there’s a print for everyone. 
How will you be wearing prints this season?  Have you have spotted or bought something awesome recently that you think should know about?  Please share it by commenting below!

Spring/Summer Trends 2012

I’ve spent most of January and half of February sorting out clients wardrobes for spring/summer but up until a couple of weeks ago, I’d been putting off taking them shopping.  I refuse to take clients shopping until the spring collections start to make a real impact as it’s just not worth it.  But it’s safe to say that the new collections are in.  
I love the start of a new season; it can’t come around quickly enough for me.  After four months of regular shopping trips I’m generally pretty tired of seeing the same stock over and over.  So as soon as the new collections start to make an appearance, my love for style is reignited, I’m inspired all over again and can’t wait to get back out there styling people!

This season’s trends won’t disappoint, in fact the mix is so great that there’s something for everyone.  I love it when the trends are so full of variety; it’s great for building on your personal style and pulling together a look that’s totally you.

Now you all know that I don’t advocate rigidly following fashions, that’s far too easy, far too boring, SO expensive and often results in unflattering mistakes.  I prefer to adapt the trends to suit, developing a style that’s up-to date, and that reflects you.  So, with that in mind, I’ve pulled together my favourite trends of the season with suggestions on how to make them work for you and illustrated with my fave picks from the high-street so far to help you develop your own take on the trends.    As I mentioned in my last post, I’ll be uploading a post for each trend over the next couple of weeks.

First up is Print.

ALICE DELLAL - CHANEL THE BOY BAG AD VIDEO

I recognised her around Camden walking alone and she was a bit nervous and camouflage and I didn't get a picture of her I'm so pissed off.It was hard to recognize her cause her one side long hair extensions werent there and she was with shaved hair and a parka so I spent whole 5 seconds spending or wasting if its her or not and yes its her while passing by her on the way.Here shes doing a commercial for Chanel.I dont think shes a chanel face cause she has the total grunge look more possibly for brands like Wang or Dior with Galliano designs maybe.
