One Look, So Much Inspiration

3 Apr

Fashion is so much about creativity and expression. It excites me to no end when I see someone wear something beautiful in an unexpected way. Doesn’t happen every day, so I have to celebrate it when it comes along. I happened upon this yesterday…

On a completely separate note, I found this quote on Pinterest and it makes my heart skip a beat. This is a life note like no other…let’s use the whole box of crayons!

Wednesday Tidbits

25 Jan

I’ve got so much love for beautiful fashion, that much I can say this lovely Wednesday afternoon. I came upon this stunning blogger today. I mean, I’ve seen a few ‘what i wore’ blogs but this chic takes the cake. I love her style. Given she’s a fashion merchandiser, it makes perfect sense! I got some tid bits from her blog. If you so desire, you can find her on atlantic pacific

I also talk about a dress I’m currently loving after the jump.

This look is so luxe...and that Celine bag!


Pleats are one of the biggest trends for Spring 2012. This sheer shirt dress with accordion pleats by Vero Moda is a pretty and chic way to wear the trend. You can find on Asos.com




Pearl Lowe for Peacocks Christmas 2010 collection

10 Nov

Pearl Lowe has done some exquisite vintage style dresses for Peacocks this year. The first to make waves among style lovers was the black polyester and lace frock in the A/W 10 collection. For a dress sold for £35 by budget retailer Peacocks, it grabbed a lot of attention and featured in places only designer dresses dare tread.

Following her success with A/W, she’s just unveiled a stunning Christmas collection in another collaboration with Peacocks. All in line with her signature vintage style, the inspiration this time was from the twenties, fifties and sixties (eras we love and smack on trend). The collection featured decadent lace, pleated and crochet knit dresses plus some faux fur, all under £60. They were charmingly modelled by her daughter Daisy Lowe and unveiled yesterday at the Connaught Hotel, Mayfair London.

Now, it only makes sense that Peacock’s customer service has been inundated with calls for pre-order, this collection is a complete vintage knock out.
