New Look Spring/Summer

Whilst browsing  the Vogue site on  key pieces for Spring/Summer 2014 here are a few of the designers that i liked their pieces, ensembles there was obviously a vast list of designers but there was far too much to select from each designer my fav's and then post.

Alexander McQueen

Staple name in British fashion here are some of his Spring/Summer '14 ready wear images they are so pretty yet simple  shorts , dresses.

Phillip Lim

An American fashion designer  and his label to be precise is 3.1 Phillip Lim i am in love with his pieces they are edgy and cool

A la deposition

Tailored looks sharp edges  and dark colours it was more office wear if anything  but specifically loved the looks below.

BCBG Azria

The looks beautiful maxi dresses floral skirts  and prints , loose fit  trousers whites and blacks with hues of blue

(especially love this look above)


Tweeds, pastels colors lilacs powdery and bright  pinks, baby blue you also had the classic Chanel 2 pieces flirty and girly  but with a twist.

Elie Saab

Elie Saabs ready to wear range consisted of monochrome colours blacks,whites reds  matching shoes ,clutchs very coordinated elegant designs yet they have this element of simplicity.

Well these are just a few, i am definitely excited for this year Spring / Summer look books next time i will be doing some research on high street fashion brands

Jelly shoes

Summer is round the corner and I personally don't like showing my feet (well the sides of my feet anyway ) I am very particular with the foot wear I choose to buy. I purchased the JuJu aka jelly sandals from Topshop the other day at £24 they are reasonably priced . They are so cute ! Reminds me of my childhood back when i was 12 I had the silver glitter versions instead .Comes in a variety of colours royal blue, hot pink and silver glitter . Quite comfortable they are quite big so if you want them fitted I would suggest you go a size down. But I personally don't mind the extra space it will come in handy especially on the more hotter days . If you have sweaty feet I wouldn't advice you to get a pair they are plastic ! After all can't wait to wear mines out!

Went Hyde park the other day with my girlies had so much fun and took these fabulous pictures! Next time we all said it will be done properly because it was a last minute dot come idea lol food and music

Victoria & Albert museum

If your about town you must visit the  Victoria & Albert museum its well cool has all sorts of art in there and if   your a fashion freak like me there is a bit in the museum where there is a gallery of fashion when it started and how it has evolved through the centuries beautiful dresses and pieces had to take a few pictures

 This dress in particular was by Christian Dior  was created around the 1930's/40's during that time the world war had just ended and people were rationing cloths, fabrics like they did the food. But Christian Dior introduced the 'new look'  bringing back glamour for the women of that decade. Expensive fabric was used to create this beautiful dress like silk for example i can imagine at that time the price it was going for.

 This dress was from the 1960's/70's very elegant this was my favourite dress from that particular display

Love this dress!

Love the high waisted bottoms not too sure about the bikini top though lol 1920's/30's swimwear,beachwear

Anybody know about Surrealism? this dress was made and designed by Schiaperreli i hope i spelt that right
whom was heavily influenced by that type of art and always incorporated that in the  designs  have you figured out  the print ?...well neither have i.

Picked up a copy of the Vogue trend book in Kurt Geiger like 2 weeks ago

This is an essential guide i believe, i mean its Vogue! this Spring/Summer is going to be fun

White- I don't think white is my colour really but i will give it a shot for this summer its always good to try something new. White is one of those colours that is  hard to pull off  you leave your house wearing white but you come back home and its turned into cream.
Floral- I love flowers this one is a hit for me lol its girly, pretty  floral prints, accessories, tea dresses, maxi dresses .
Shining- sequins , metallic gold, bronze, silver its all about metal almost futuristic. Shiny material that when light reflects on it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.

Suits- Topshop and Zara make brilliant suits for Women the suit
has to be sharp clean cuts, power suits but in all shades of the colour
palette. Cropped blazers are especially quite popular teamed with 
cigarette trousers or ankle grazers which i'm loving. A few cigarette 
trousers , Mens shirts (particularly slim line) and a cropped blazer 
are on my Summer wish list. You can go for the more masculine look
or if you prefer keep it feminine as long as top and bottoms match 
the same colour.
Splits- Side split, Back split, double splits  its all about being sexy and 
showing skin midi skirts, dresses, maxi skirts and maxi dresses. Its time 
to bring out the pins this trend is definetly bringing sexy back! lol
Japonism- East meets West more like West meets East oriental flavour 
kimonos, obi belts and all that picture a modern Geisha  not the easiest 
look to pull off i personally think

Black- I love black goes with everything suits every
shape and sizes. But this one leaves a question mark
as i don't think it should be considered as a Summer
colour as everyone knows black absorbs heat lol.
Chequers- This trend is heavily influenced by the 1960's black and white being the most popular combo.

Slouch- I love wearing my brothers jumpers i think i look uber cool in them lol baggy jumpers casual loose trousers ,pyjama pants  keep accessories minimal to pull off this casual look.
Lines- Vertical, Horizontal there is a pair of black and white striped leggings from River Island  that i must get. If your brave! rock the lines look top and bottom if you dare personally too much lines makes my eyes go all blurry.

 Frills- This trend speaks for itself.... i like.
Plastic- Plastic was commonly left for the bedroom (freak mode) but now it is on the runway mmmmm coloured plastic, clear plastic looks quite uncomfortable to me lol not for me well in public anyway.

My new edition to my collection i bought these from Topshop for £65  for my birthday!! they are not quite comfortable at the moment but  being real leather i expect them to stretch i absolutely love the white block heel .

Finally got my Kurt Geiger Vero boots so excited can't wait to wear them. Got them for half the price original price was £150 !! Good investment.
