Vintage-Inspired Cherry Print Skirt and Dresses

Do you like flowery, fruity, summery prints? Well, take your pick from these lovely new cherry-print dresses and skirts in the online store:

Cotton Skirt

My favourite is the maxi-dress, personally. Swooshing around in a long, floaty dress on a hot summer day = instant romantic appeal!

Pick of the Week: Peter Pan Collars

I'm the sort of person whose taste changes from one second to the next, especially when it comes to clothes. I'll like floaty florals one seconds, tailored jackets the next, and then start drooling over stripy t-shirts instead. Because of this, I thought I'd introduce a new feature to the blog - Pick of the Week - so that I can rave about my changing obsessions on a regular basis! :)

This week, I'm all about Peter Pan collars. Actually, this is a lasting love of mine - I'll buy anything with a collar in this style!

And the Peter Pan collar on this blue dress is no exception to the rule. I adore the colour, style and pockets, and it would be so easy to dress up as well as down.

Wear it with black tights, heels, and a matching necklace for a night out, or just a pair of flats for daytime comfort. Either way, it's perfectly suited to the situation.

Dress Up, Dress Down

What are your current obsessions? I'd love to hear about them.

Style Inspiration: Blue Jeans

I envy people who can look good in jeans, I really do. I always feel incredibly under-dressed when I wear them, even if I'm just popping down to the shop... Maybe I'm just not styling them right, though. Because they look wonderful in this page from Birgitte!

So, how to recreate these looks? The jeans themselves are pretty basic, and I'm sure you have a pair at home, but the styling makes all the difference.

Look #1: This is quite a boyish look, so pair the jeans with a flannel shirt and leather bomber. Add some girlier details to top it all off - some dainty shoes and a stylish handbag do the trick here.

Look #2: This is a much more traditionally feminine outfit, and a lot dressier than the first - even if they do describe it as 'hippie'. Grab a nice, loose shirt, a suede-style handbag, and top it all off with a pair of shiny heels to complete this look.

How do you like to style your jeans? Inspire me!

Inspiration: Exam Time!

Spring is coming to an end, and for lots of us, that means one thing... exams. Oh dear. I'm about to lose my mind in a mush of literary and cultural theory, but I'll be damned if I don't feel good while I'm doing it!

A big bag for my books:

A snuggly cardigan to keep me from panicking:

And a simple dress and shoes so I don't have to worry about matching in the morning:

(Buy in the store.)

Now I just have to actually go and learn the stuff... Good luck to any of you in the same boat!
