Crochet Dress -Inspiration

With the very slightly, (and I mean, slight ) change in weather here in the UK, and the surprise when I saw the yellow daffodils open in my front garden as I stepped out of the house this morning.

I knew it was time. I knew Spring was imminent and this nasty cold depressing season we call winter is almost on its way out. ‘Bye Felicia’ I hear you say! With that and the blue skies up ahead I thought to myself it is now time to start searching for summer wear.

This thought also came into my mind as a few friends have booked a trip to Dubai in a few weeks so summer outfits is almost certainly important.

With that said, with also  watching a few episodes of reality show it dawned on me that I need a cover up for the beach! but a cute one! One that shows skin but also hides skin (after all its a traditional country)

No more sarongs..

My search landed me to these awesome crochet cover ups.

So Ladies (and gentlemen) here are a few inspirational images to get you ready for summer.

Ways to wear your cover up:

With Boots and a groovy scarf- Light natural and cool!

Don’t forget the matching bikini

Whilst on holiday in turkey I was taken to one of the gold shops and was immediately introduced to the brand Belmond.
Not exactly high end or particularly expensive.. But for that reason I loved it!
I high shine stainless steel incredibly sparkly crystal Swarovski encrusted watch which I can use as an every day run around whilst the Rolex is on clean!
This gorgeous time piece does exactly what it’s meant to.. Capture some attention, tell the time and look good!

Have you found watches off the beaten track that are not big brands but you still love?

Just the other day I thought to myself- I love the look of a sharp suit- black is a bit boring, grey is becoming the norm so why not add some colour.. Well Kendal Jenner – sister to the Kardashian Klan was spotted leaving her hotel  to her book signing in New Jersey alongside her sister Kylie.

The blue suit is a stunner- bold beautiful and blue!

The 18 year old seems to be getting more risque by the day, opting not to wear a top underneath the over sized jacket.

Paired with a point stiletto it really is a great look.

Why not try other colours for fashion.

These celebrities have also been spotted looking chic in their suits.

Why stick for the standard black grey boring colours go wild!

So.. This leggings trend that has been going on for the past 5 years seems to be staying and not going anytime soon..

I quite like leggings because they are easy to wear the type of item you don’t need to iron just put on and go.. thats my kind of fashion on a lazy late day.

However whilst having a discussion with my friends she believed that leggings shouldn’t be worn without a long top or dress as it is pretty much a thin piece of material that doesn’t cover much. I have to agree with her on the cheaper imitations of leggings that I have seen whilst out and about in London which are really bad and terribly thin and next to nothing..In the light almost turning transparant.

YUCK..

However in my opinion the thicker leggings can be really cute sexy and such a great way to show off slim toned legs.

Paired with a cute set of heels black leggings can look top model.

Since this leggings trend has been around for such a long time the designers are trying to switch it up with more unique creations.

Rihanna back in the day with beige leggings..even though they are casual items rihanna spruces it up with narrow toed heels and it looks smart.

Leggings are versatile and now that you can get such crazy and unique designs the styles are endless.

 

This Saturday marked the charity social event of week with Hollywood’s finest teetering down to sip champagne and watch the polo for the annual Veuve Clicquot polo held at the Will Rogers State Historic Park.

Of course the usual celebs were pouting and ready to be photographed whilst they pretend to understand the rules of polo! One actress Zoe Saldana, caught my eye in her Jason Wu dress from the spring summer 2012 ready to wear collection.

She paired the black and white dress with Brian Atwood Zenith Platform Pumps which we thought was a ‘different’ combination but it worked!

The Shoes are simple elegant and patent style and are a cool beige/nude colour which really complimented her skin tone and gives her calves lovely definition.

The Dress by Jason Wu is a superb design and it is this I want to focus on for the upcoming trends of 2012.

An asymmetrical line to a skirt really is a dramatic feature to any outfit- and just as much as we liked it, Jason Wu used it,  it can be seen prominently throughout his latest collection from large lines of asymmetry to shorter less noticeable coy lines. It is a great collection..

This bold lime green dress featured below is a lovely statement of colour with the added mini peek in the front of the dress which gives envious onlookers a clear view of the shoes (which must be the perfect set of heels!)

A simple black bow enables the lower half of the dress to become the feature and focus and makes this our favourite in the collection.

The way the dress flows behind the wearer is always a lovely to see as you walk away practically bellowing in the wind! The only part that would be missing would be dramatic background music for a really over the top exit.

We Love it!

One of the best features about a asymmetrical skirt is that it is a great way to show a bit of skin and still be chic and classy, so a short skirt designed with a long tail can come across as more demur which is a great way to mix the two looks of party girl and reserved.

Jason has really gone for strong stiking colours in this Spring Summer 2012 collection and I think thats what summer should be all about!

Hot tip for summer 2012 – Vibrant colours and Asymmetrical skirts.

More to come…

So Today, the 1st october 2011, we saw the hottest ever October in records to hit London and most of the UK with temperatures reaching record highs of 30 degrees- I have been enjoying the sun- over the past week, however I realised it’s time to find something to wear for the Pimms in London tomorrow.

Something elegant, pretty, and bright with a mixture of autumn colours, simple enough to just wear yet with enough presence to turn heads – Furthermore, the outfit needs to be somewhat functional in the approaching winter season, So the question arose…what to wear on a sunny Sunday october 2011.

We have come up with this really price economical outfit that will leave you looking lovely in the British Indian Summer Snap.

 

So what do we have…

River Island Skater Dress

This bright and lovely red sleeveless dress which tapers out- very simple but its what we do with it that can make it really chic!

RRP £30.00- Bargain!

Aldo BREMSETH Heels

With this outfit- sticking to two colours acts for a stronger bold impacting statement- similar to that of colour blocking we have noticed celebrities like Kim Kardashian going for recently. Beige is a lovely colour, easy to match and always looks sophesticated.

These Aldo heels create a lovely calf to every womans leg, simple patented and have a concealed platform to give you hidden height! it is also much more comfortable to have the concealed platform.

Glamourous and a fab colour to contrast the brightness of the red dress.

RRP Currently on SALE at £50

Zara Tasselled Messenger Bag

Made from Cow leather, small compact to keep the attention on you and the dress rather than the large purse that is wearing you- great for the sun as its light large enough to carry the lipstick, credit card plus the iphone- all us girls really need!

 

RRP £79.99

Monsoon Bangles

Simple accessories are the best for summerwear, just a basic gold and brown bangle stackers are great for decorating the arms- the gold compliments the brown from the shoes and the bag- great choice.

RRP £12.00

Burberry Nude Glasses

 

Of course- glasses are a natural choice as soon as the tiniest crack of sun comes out- and the ever popular Aviators you can never go wrong.

These nude glasses give you UV protection as well as a high fashion look.

RRP £165.00

EUGENIA KIM-Claudia feather-embellished silk-satin headband

Again, the point of this outfit is to get the right balance of exposure and subtlety- we considered a large sunhat but- considering its October use over the winter months are rather limited- unless the aim is to be laughed at! so- instead something more versatile yet glamourous enough to carry up this outfit is the headband. Creating a beautiful continuation of beige colour and fashion with a bit of uniqueness it is the perfect final piece to finish off this cool sexy summer look.

RRP £107.00

EUGENIA KIM HEADBAND

 

The complete outfit is all for under £500 with a mixture of high street fashion and luxury designer fusion-

Get the most out of this ‘Last few days of summer cocktail with friends’ outfit over the next few days in London…
