It is simply not warm anymore, hombres. I am obviously trying to hold onto my dresses as long as I possibly can – time to call in the cardigans, sweaters, and other warm friends!

A-line polka-dot dress (with a bow on the front) is handmade, lavender-coloured long cardigan from the archives, hair is in strange stage between brunette and blonde, and dusty pink ruffled platforms from eBay.

Mary Katrantzou SS12
Oh, Mary Mary, she seemed to be sick of everyone asking how her garden grows. Visual tools are the best answers, anyway. With an elongated bed of flowers in the centre of Miss Katrantzou’s Spring/Summer 2012 runway, the tone was set for an smart set of sartorial garden glory.

Glory, it was. I haven’t seen a designer use such involved precision in efforts to rewrite the linearity of a woman’s body for quite some time. Especially not like this. Her cuts are unusual in the most glamorous and distinctive way, letting her seamlessly follow body-conscious silhouettes with weightless trains. Like sophisticated, lavender, yellow, orange, green and pink birds of paradise. View Post

Gucci Guilty Intense
Guess who’s coming out with an incredible new Eau de Parfum, guys?

If you couldn’t tell by the interlocked G’s (or…ahem…the title), it’s Gucci! As a follow up to the gargantuan success of Gucci Guilty (and the incredible campaign featuring Evan Rachel Wood and Chris Evans), Gucci Guilty Intense has ravishing top notes of mandarin and pink pepper, middle notes of lilac, violet and heliotropine, and base notes of patchouli – Gucci’s fragrance glory. And that’s just in the ladies perfume.

The male fragrance…well, it’s pure sex. Top notes are lavender, coriander (so fantastic) and amalfi lemon, middle notes are african orange flower and neroli, and base notes are patchouli and amber. In fact, the men’s fragrance is so deliciously complex, I would recommend it as a unisex fragrance.

Both will be launching on the 24th August, 2011.

Kate Middleton Michelle Obama
These are going to be some of the most recycled photos of the year, I’m sure. Both Michelle and Barack Obama visited Buckingham Palace today per The Queen’s invite to a two day State Visit. Michelle was wearing a lavender-pink cropped jacket over her a-lineĀ Barbara Tfank Resort 2011 dress. Sticking to her style formula, Kate Middleton dressed in the “Shola” bandage dress by high-street retailer Reiss. And yes, it is already sold out.
