One thing I love about vintage-inspired pieces as that they usually find a way to work in both Winter and Summer – you know, “transitional dressing”. This dress, in particular, felt equal parts ‘Mad Men’ and colourblocking-friendly when I spotted it hidden in Boden’s women’s clothing section (probably something to do with their huge promo of colourblocking knitwear). By happenstance, the dress arrived with a big dose of sunshine and another package featuring this unbelievable Shabana Khan necklace. Pink lip, neon shoes…colourblock sorted.

What I Wore:
Wardour dress, Boden. Nicole necklace, Shabana Khan. Neon green heels, Nelly.

So, it’s a little more chartreuse than neon, but why not use any excuse possible to throw out an Arcade Fire song title? While I’m at it, I might as well self-indulge and channel my inner Coco Rocha (crazy pose goddess model queen) to swing my new self-designed shoes around.

See? Let’s go ahead and show you the whole ensemble…in technicolour! View Post

Because I am off to New York in just over two weeks, my mind has been keeping busy melding ideas in efforts to be a sartorially smart tourist*. I’m simply not the kind of woman to don a visor and a fanny pack (and hope that unless you’ve just time travelled from 1980, you aren’t either). I feel like – from the Shake Shack to the Top of The Rock – the look above is going to be my basic Manhattan uniform. Ease, colour, and a removable layer if the weather calls for it.

Get The Look:
Noir Jewelry Shaka Neon Knot Bracelet
Belle by Sigerson Morrison Verena Patent Flats
Kenny Penny Pockets Dress
Cambridge Satchel Fluoro Satchel
Elie Tahari Taylor Jacket

* Yes, I’m American. I love ‘playing tourist’.

It’s always nice to end on a neon note. Miuccia Prada wrapped up the four main worldwide Fashion Weeks at Miu Miu with a Seventies bow and a soundtrack that strangely featured dialogue from Flashdance, Cheryl Cole and the X Factor. With a timeless mix of “Oh my God” pieces and extreme elegance, there were individual quirks to each piece like stylised swan prints. Wait about two months and you’ll see these items on every magazine shelf you walk by. Thus ends Spring/Summer 2011. Excuse me while I throw my platforms at the wall and slip into a fashion coma.
