Hi All,

S/S’12 and all those great new trends and colours we’re yet to wear! I wear black and navy blue so often that I long for bright colour pops when spring comes around.

Trend-wise I love the Tropicana prints at Stella McCartney, Salvatore Ferragamo and Dior. Tropical prints featuring palm trees, parrots, surfers and even mermaids (Versace) have .

Colour-wise, I love the  shades of rich blues and greens; I presume that when Spring / Summer colours are presented each year very often they’re pale pastel shades so as not to alarm us? Pretty but also pretty plain. I prefer the bold strong colours that filter through as the season progresses.

And boy am I getting ready to wear them.

Now I’m of the nearest Tiki bar for a piña colada, while I wait for some tropical sunshine.

Hello All,

Sunshine, Joy. Official ‘Summertime’, Joy. Warm bright evenings, Joy.

I’m so excited at the moment. The massive amounts of extra daylight and beautiful sunshine we’ve been having has made me happy. Being able to do things that don’t involve and NOT WEAR TIGHTS is too good. I’m kinda running myself to the max at the moment, freelance deadlines and blog style posts, as well as trying to run an on-line vintage business on ASOS and setting up my own site… But I love it, being busy is great! Makes you feel alive.

Who ever said fashion was practical? So what if shorts are meant for summer? We don’t really get a summer in Ireland so layering up shorts with tights is essential year-round, including winter no? I flippin’ love these polka dot hearts and I’m not waiting 7 months to wear ’em so I’ve thrown them on with polka dot tights and a messy up do. One day I’ll brush my hair too, maybe in the summer…
