2013 : a fashion resolution

♥  ♥  ♥




Fashion fades, only style remains the same
                                    Coco Chanel


With a new year comes thoughts of getting older (& wiser?), & with age comes an evolution of style. Many resolutions will be made when the clock strikes midnight, & one of those is, simply, to invest in classic & quality fashion pieces going forward. The older I get, the more I am willing to purchase fewer items that will last longer, & translate to many different looks. 

In this age of instant fashion-gratification, at the click of the button, it is so easy to be too influenced by the millions of images floating through the internets, too easy to confuse your taste & style by this abundance of inspiration. . . but finally, I have discovered my personal style -- & this is not to say I will never buy a 'fad' piece again, but it does mean I am a wiser fashionista coming into 2013 & with a few key fashion icons guiding me, I know this is a resolution I will certainly be keeping. . .

LOVE





♥  ♥  ♥

-->
" According to Greek Mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs & a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves. "

Plato's The Symposium
                                                                                       
♥  ♥  ♥ 

Although somewhat of a morbid sentiment, the idea of spending a lifetime searching for your other half, the one that can make you whole, is a truly romantic notion. . .

BOW



As the Christmas party invitations begin to arrive, there is always the very important decision of what to wear. . . & lately I've been looking for a perfectly 'grown-up' elegant dress, but could not go past this beautifully big bow. . .  [& the equally exquisite red lip!]

LOVE IS IN THE AIR



♥  ♥  ♥

You can't help but be in the most romantic of moods when the sweet scent of blossoms is wafting through the air -- tickling your senses, fluttering your heart & sending your mind on the most starry-eyed daydreams. . .

OUFIT : like a mermaid


On a blustery Spring Saturday afternoon, by the rocks & the freezing ocean water I danced & spun & twirled in a sequined mermaid dress & braid in my hair. . . Having had an infatuation with mermaids for as long as I can remember, this frock was a must have the first time I spotted it on ASOS -- it's the most magical colour & the loveliest design & twirls just so when I spin around in circles. . . 




♥ thank you, chelsea -- you are wonderful!

FOR SPRING : Rachel Roy Resort


♥  ♥  ♥
 
As the spring sunshine begins to gently warm,  the hemlines start to creep up & we dare to bare shoulders -- pops of colour begin to appear & strappy sandles become our shoe of choice. It feels everywhere I look there are gushing florals & intricate lace & demure scallops & everywhere, everywhere I see beautifully bright colours -- a simple yet elegant resort collection by a favourite designer, Rachel Roy, has me eager for the months ahead, as they get warmer & warmer. . .
