Don’t you just love Burberry Ad Campaigns? So vibrant and alive. Very interesting too to see the Burberry take on the bright colour trend for Spring.
Valentino understands what the girly girl wants. No tough edges or accents, just softness, delicate frills, understatedly elegant classics, very whimsical, very Parisian chic.
There’s a pure beauty about the way they take wardrobe staples and make them into something exquisite by adding frills, bows and soft embellishment. I picked out my favorites from the collection.

H&M has done a really pretty interpretation of key Spring trends for the high street. For a campaign tagged “Romantic Preppy,” Jourdan Dunn did a lovley job, it’s so good to see her all girly, bubbly and full of smiles, nice departure from the straight faced runway pictures.
All key trends well represented, bright colours, florals, white, lace, wide leg pants and you bet in prices we all can afford.
See which one you like and pop over to the H&M site to check out what you can get.

Away from the bold colours making the rounds, neutrals are also a big trend this season; the entire 43 piece Donna Karan Spring collection was in a neutral palette, from shades of beige to camel to tan.
The Mango ‘nude’ collection goes down the same route, complete with camel, tan and brown hues. It still touches on more Spring trends, romantic sheers, mid lengths, florals and platform heels, there was a yellow skinny belt there somewhere, so bright colour trend: check.
Love the tan boxy bag in look 8. You can see the entire collection on the Mango site.
I’m sure it’s now painfully obvious that I am obsessing over this electric colour trend. It’s reminiscent of how I went on and on about the 50s trend for last Fall, Lol, I wanted it to go on forever. Still love the 50s, Fifties Forever! On trend or not.
Back to the moment, Spring is full of exciting trends, the 70s comeback is absolutely fabulous, Oh the beauty of wide leg pants, blouson sleeved blouses and platforms.
The next best thing is the electric colour trend, this one has completely got my heart; all the vibrant hues, clashing colours and colour blocking = blissful sight. What makes it perfect is that it’s not just with clothes you can rock this trend, there are tons of beautiful accessories, shoes and bags in brilliant, bright colours. So just in case for some weird reason, you’re not jumping on the electric colour train, try out some accessories to give zing to your dark wardrobe palette.
Excellent way to start is with bags; clutches, satchels, hobos, shoulder bags, you have a wide array of options to choose from.
Here’s my fav selection. I want ‘em all by the way
It’s no news that I’m a die hard lover of all things ladylike, so finding this editorial tagged ‘Lady be Good’ on Vogue.com was pure joy. Featuring the model Amber Valletta alongside her son Auden McCaw (adorable twist), it’s sleek sophistication in the best of Spring fashion by Jil Sander, Dolce & Gabbana, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Prada and more.
The pink Carolina Herrera silk blouse in the first picture is simply TDF.
There was a generous helping of pieces in one of Spring’s key shades, Tangerine but it was overall a celebration of my best Spring trend, Electric colour. On the look though, this is where fashion is at right now, grown up glamour with a zesty twist.
The shoot was photographed by Steven Klein.

It’s been ages since my last blog post! You bet there was no way that could have been intentional, I totally had to hibernate for reasons I wish were under my control. Sadly, I missed out on my up to the minute Fall Fashion reporting, I was really looking forward to that.
Well, fashion month has ended with the Paris shows and it’s been great fashion and extraordinary street style.
Somewhere in between, the legendary John Galliano got the boot from Dior for ‘crazy drunken’ anti-semitic comments, I saw the video and was horrified! It’s sad though, really sad, we loved him for his theatrical take on fashion. He will be missed.
So, back to Fall 2011 Fashion, i’ll do a round up of my best pieces from the shows this weekend.
In the meantime, I’ve been loving and longing for some key pieces and trends from the amazing Spring 2011 Fashion. I especially love the electric colour trend, I’m really in the mood for some major colour popping. With dresses or accessories.
It’s a never ending list but here are some of my dream must have pieces.
