Tropical tango

Tropical neon fruits and flowers

are big news this summer.

But we can rely on the designers

to always return to nature for

inspiration. Clash prints in the

same colour spectrum for a

new take on the floral fantasy.

hot acid yellow with juicy orange

and a dash of electric pink.

Silk fluid trousers vintage Gucci.

Hat trick for Beatrice

Bless her, Beatrice hasnt been blessed with good taste, maybe we have her mum to thank for that ! But Between them, Beatrice and Euginea were possibly the worst dressed at the RW. Try too hard springs to mind. Too Old ! was another phrase that summed them up and even the 'ugly sisters' were mentioned. Ahhh, well it shows that a big budget dosent make up for personal style. Valentino is one of my all time favourite designers, but the nude, blush shade was old and washed Beatrice out. It was a statement coat which didnt need a statement hat as well ..... less is more. On a high note, her shoes were divine, far more elegant than VB's 'slag shoes'. Viv Westwood for her younger sibling was the wrong cut for her figure shape, in too bold a fabric which again required a more subtle headpiece. The pair were almost comical compared to the modern, slick Spencer girls....... in Victoria Beckham dresses and rather more understated milinery. But hey, B stepped up to the critics and flogged the offending headwear for a whooping £80,000 plus in the name of charity, thats what i call a hat-trick !

Royal Wedding summer fashion

The Royal Wedding enabled some Royals and celebs to show off their taste or lack of it ! further posts to follow....... However, for the women in the street, it was more about having fun. With this in mind, i hosted a summer fashion show showing, swimwear, holiday gear and lush cocktail and evening dresses. In fact, everything Kate would need for her belated honeymoon. The finale was lead by Jodi, one of my experienced and very beautiful models with a crown, union flag and Kate mask, hee hee. A goodtime was had by all ! Watch this space for my personal review of the BEST and WORST outfits of the Royal Wedding.

Gucci Opened Milan Fashion Week with a lush array of 1940's inspired silhouette's. The models wore fab fox fur stoles in emerald, fuchsia and turquoise with platform ankle-strap heels. The 1970's were not forgotten, with slinky chiffon see-through gowns split to the thigh, teamed with skinny patent belts. Hot colours are definately not just for SS 2011, the winter season promises to be full of electro-pop fun !

O.K. ladies.......have you seen the snowdrops poking their little heads out of the ground? It's a sign Spring is on it's way, yipeeee!
Time to think about the dead skin on your heels, the fuzz on your legs and the dull, dull, dull clothes hanging in your wardrobe.
Spring is all about COLOUR...... the catwalks were awash with watercolour prints and fluro glow -in- the- dark brights, there is no excuse to look flat.

Book a wardrobe detox with me before the end of February and get 20% discount, spend the money you save on a LBB- a little bright bag, an instant fashion update to wear right now with the darker shades of transitional clothing in your wardrobe.

Whatever you do, STOP buying winter gear......spring has almost sprung!

Yummy Mummy styling

Hi peeps, Had a great day styling a new client, a very 'yummy mummy' who needs looks to work with her problem.
Remember to always LISTEN before making suggestions, im not a member of the fashion police.
We are ALL sensitive souls, a pregnancy can change your body shape, and make you loose confidence.
I think, no i hope, no i know, by the time i left my client was back in love with herself- RESULT.

Working from her own style starting point, ive developed her quirky fashion sense into a more refined luxe boho look, suitable for her age and career.

More updates on her journey soon......GO girl !

charity 2 couture

charity 2 couture

charity shop chic

Hi all,

Long time no here we all are in a new year, what hopes and dreams do we all have?

Do we care about anything or anyone other than ourselves? Hope so !!!

My aim is to concentrate on wearing, making, promoting sustainable fashion........dosent have to be organic, ethical would be nice.

Recently, i organized and hosted a charity fashion show, the theme was CHARITY 2 COUTURE.

With this in mind, i styled 3 themes using charity donated clothing.

10 models wore 3 seperate looks on the catwalk........english heritage tweed, modern metalics, and my take on the 'little black dress'

Proving that it is not necessary to spend a fortune to look hot and directional.

renewable clothing is the way forward, upcycling is the new designer........think before you buy a new item, think about the impact on the environment, think about the COST
