Spring is on it’s way, which means it’s time to think about transitioning your wardrobe. I’m about to toss away my Winter coats, and will be living in my trench coats from now on. I’m thrilled to finally put peep-toes, elegant thigh-highs and ballerinas back on my Winter-dry feet (note to myself; MUST book that pedicure asap!)
“Although they run half a size too small, and I remember not having enough money to pay my mortgage that month… Ahhh, Priorities!”
The SS catwalks served up an eye-popping bouquet of florals. From that scene-stealing summer party dress, to the Formica prints that will energise your new season office wear – 2017’s fashion optimism begins with bold blooms (and they are anything but prim). In The Devils Wears Prada, fictional editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly drolly states, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” And while there may be a lot of truth to her statement – designers ranging from Gucci to Givenchy and Erdem are making the print feel cool again for SS’17.
“It’s a sign of Spring. It’s fun, flirty, and helps you achieve a girlie look fit for a warm day”
There was a time when I used to hate the month of January… the grey and cold weather… witnessing all the gorgeous Christmas trees and lights being brutally ripped down all over town… Just all so incredibly depressing. Like a long, miserable Monday that never ended.
“Dressing up in greys can be fun, we just need to remind ourself that with the right accessories and boots, January can actually be quiet refreshing and glamorous. “
Let your sleeves do the talking this season with some of Springs’s most sought-after shirt silhouettes from bell sleeves to ruffles and off-the-shoulder numbers. From sleek dresses to cool tops and even quirky knits, bell sleeves add a unique dose of fashion to even the simplest of outfits.
“Fitted on the shoulder and flaring out wide toward the wrist, the bell sleeve is the same as it always was, yet totally different. Gone are any hippy and bohemian references, instead, the new bell sleeve is modern and utterly chic.”
One of my girlfriends called me earlier today screaming “I don’t know if it is just a conisidence, but last New Year’s Eve I wore black, and this year was the unluckiest of my life”.
While I love dressing up in something glamorous and sparkly for New Year’s Eve, I must admit that I have dressed in black for New Year’s on a few occasions.
“My friend got me wondering… what really did happen to those years when I wore black myself?”
