the bold and beautiful

picnic at red flowered rock
Right now designers and clothing companies are going crazy with bold, bright hues. Elie Saab's gorgeous Resort 2012 collection had me dazed over the simply cut dresses in rich, vibrant tones. I love how fabulous the dresses are and that they barely need any accessories to complement them. While listening to Adele's addictive tunes, I made a red inspired Polyvore. I'm not a major red wearer, although I would wear this look as it features two of my favourite things; chiffon/ organza/ shear and floral. I also love those boots! They are pretty chunky and edgy but because of the light colours, they still have a girly feel to them. 

Also, I recommend checking out Dotti's latest collection of bright clothing, inspired by Summer and the beach. Speaking of which, Spring and Summer are coming up and I'm beyond excited! I have to admit, Winter is becoming more and more tiresome in the mornings when waking up at first light is a necessity. I'm also running out of winter clothes! Spring and Summer mean: floral collections galore, prettier pastels and sun dresses. The latest issue of Teen Vogue was a perfect example of bright, attention seeking colours with the cover that squealed 'pick me up'! I love the latest issue, especially Taylor Swift's beautiful editorial featuring vintage clothing and romantic florals. The only thing that I can be critical about is the spread 'Blue Collar'. I really didn't think it was Teen Vogue worthy and I don't think any of the readers would be caught dead in any of the ensembles. 
Well, before I ramble even further, I wanted to tell you about the progress of my floral overnight bag! I'm super duper happy about the choice of fabric (the old bed sheet) and it's going really well. I've cut out all the pieces and I'm ready to stitch them together. I can't wait until it's complete so I can display it in a post!

Have a marvellous week!
