It has been a while since I have actually posted something on my blog that hasn’t had something to do with my wedding, sorry about that but I hope you understand that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I just had to share. So, before I bombard you with photographs from my UK celebrations that fingers crossed you all want to see, I thought I would showcase this amazing editorial from the latest issue of Vogue Paris with real-life designer Barbie dolls.
I spend a lot of my time in jeans, from skinny to boyfriend and even the odd flared cut, in dark blue, light blue, red floral print, grey, and even a stripy pair, I just love them, but this summer I have really been embracing the good weather **where the hell has it gone** and trying to wear more summery, girlie looks.
Last week, when the sun was shining, I wore this Tommy Hilfiger beauty that I found on Amazon’s dress store, yep that place where you buy books, blu-rays, and the occasional Barbie, **I call it the online shop for the three B’s**, has opened The Dress Shop, which has thousands of dresses from brands including Cacharel, French Connection, BCBG, Great Plains, Yumi and Hoss Intropia.
I have been lusting over the Moschino Cheap and Chic pre-spring/summer 2014 collection for a few weeks now, trying to decide which pieces were my favourite, its hard when I love all the sherbet colours, the daisy prints, the lace detailing, and the quirky handbags.
Inspired by the 60s/70s, I just love the candy-coated world of Moschino’s Cheap and Chic resort collection, where the clothes are oh so ladylike in their detailing, whether it’s a touch of lace around the collar, adorable puff shelves, or a piano fringed hemline, this collection is divine.
As well as the girlie dresses, the statement printed coat, and the lace overlay skirt, the collection is also filled with floral printed trousers, crochet maxi dresses, and adorable blouses. It is kind of mixes two personalities – the flowers in her hair festival chick with a romantic, feminine ladylike character. It is this clash of personality that gives this charming girlie collection an added care-free attitude, which totally comes through in the accessories and styling with the cool open-toe mesh booties, the daisy adorned biker boots, mirrored aviators and quirky handbags.
Not only do I love/want all the clothes, especially the dresses, I also adore the bags, which are amazing and quirky with my three stand outs being the oversized Menu clutch that is reminiscence of the statement Charlotte Olympia and Olympia Le-Tan clutches, as well as the daisy and watering can shoulder bags.
Oh to be a Moschino Cheap and Chic gal!!!
