Roberto Cavalli RTW SS 2012...

Time to share with you another of my favourite collections for SS 2012, this time it's Roberto Cavalli's collection.


A slight departure for Cavalli with this incredible collection but refreshingly so. In place of the usual chiffon animal print maxis were sequins, pastels, pleats, drop waists highlighted with stunning floral & baroque prints. With the colour story leading us from little gold dresses to black pleats which showed off peekaboo prints, each piece in this fresh contemporary collection exudes opulence & a level of craftsmanship to rival that of Paris' finest couturier's. The looks are styled to perfection with messy chignon's and smoky eyes, the gowns topped with stunning embellished blazers. Cavalli is a designer that I wouldn't usually look to when choosing my favourite shows, however I am in love with this collection and cannot wait to see what Roberto has in store for the future. Enjoy the show. x

What did you think of the Cavalli SS 2012 collection?

My Style Rules... Part 1

My number 1 style essential has to be the blazer! I have quite a few blazers in my collection as they come in many shapes, sizes and textures these days! Classic Tuxedo, lace, sequin, leather, printed...... the list goes on!

Here are my rules to rock the blazer:

- Roll up the sleeves to show off your wrist candy and soften the look
- Wear simply with jeans and a tee for a dressy weekend look
- Belt it to show off your curves!
- Wear with everything from a cocktail dress, mini skirt, jeans, maxi dress, leggings.... everything!

Blog Stalking...

As a new blogger I am a series self confessed blog stalker! I read all sorts of blogs on a daily hourly basis! I am obsessed! It's like turning the page of a never ending magazine every time I read a new post! It's a great way to learn about new designers/ products/ stores/ recipes/ events.... the list goes on. I have narrowed down my huge list to my Top 5 must read fashion & interior blogs!


I just love Jennifer Ramos' blog, Made By Girl - it's updated almost every day which is fab as there's always something new to look at. This is my favourite blog at the moment & that's due to the sheer diversity of content that Jen shares. She includes everything from fashion & interiors to food & travel - I always look forward to seeing what she is talking about next plus have you seen her home? Jealous!!


 I need this girls wardrobe now! Seriously! I've not long discovered this blog by Julia Sarinana but since I have, I can't stay away! Sincerely Jules has become my personal style advisor! Her style is effortless & a great mix of designer & high street! Who wouldn't want to steal her style?!


I discovered L.A. in the Bay after Lauren guest blogged on Made by Girl last week. Her blog is just stunning & I'm a huge fan of her Wednesday Wishlist posts!


Bowie Style is the name behind Print & Pattern! This blog is dedicated to the world of surface & pattern design & has been so successful that there are now 2 books of the blog! I have been following P&P since 2006 when I was studying for my degree and still visit daily to see what's new in the pattern world!


Style Me Pretty indeed! This blog is so beautiful! Filled with photographs of the worlds most stunning weddings, I dare you not to want to organise a wedding asap! Just beautiful!

Ode to Typography...

A little something I'm working on at the moment. I am obsessed with typography & have a new fave font each month! I thought I would put my obsession to good use & make a calendar to showcase my fave fonts! I'm too late to the mark for this year but calendar will be out next year :)) Yey! Oh and the Christmas Sparkle cards will be available very soon - they are at the printers as I type! :))

Quick Pic...

This weekend I've been picking out paint & window dressings for my bedroom & living room. Popped to the Dulux shop today to pick up some samples for my fireplace in the living room! The colours I chose to try out were Crystal Grey, Quartz Flint, Grey Steel 4 and Grey Steel 6 (top to bottom). They all looked much darker on the walls than in the cans but think we found a winner with Grey Steel 6 - I can't wait to get it on the wall and get my makeshift fireplace in place :D Next up... curtains, rug, lamps, mirror...... oh my, so much to do....
