Slinky, Silky, Slips...
Underwear as outerwear has taken a new turn. Peachy coloured camisoles, crop tops and blouses in the style of feminine slips, the elegant undergarment of the past, is the alternative top to this hot weather, inbetween seasons. Personally I love old fashioned slips, I think they can look really pretty if worn with the right outfit.
The three main styles are, the vintage 30's and 40's lace trimmed styles, the crochet patterned cropped styles, and the chiffony light blouses, usually worn by younger women.

Take inspiration from old film stars,
release your inner Brigitte Bardot!

Flower Halo

Sorry it's been a while since we've posted!
I've just made a flower halo, so thought I'd let you know how to make one, as I said I would do so below, so here goes...

What you'll need:
Craft Wire, 3 flower bundles (£2 each from John Lewis), Ribbon (10mm x 5m is £2.50 from John Lewis)

I hope you can see the materials okay, sorry my desk is so messy!

Holding one end of the wire, measure it around your head to see how much you'll need, but when you cut the wire, add at least 3.5cm extra to cover the part where you link the two ends together.
(The wire I used was a bit too flimsy, so I doubled my amount before cutting, and then twisted the two strands together to make it stronger!)

Then twist the two ends together to make a halo.

Take one of the flowers, (John Lewis do a varitey of craft flowers, I chose to use white ones)
and place the bud on the wire, then wrap the flower's wire stem around the halo. If the stems are really long, just wrap a bit then cut the rest off!

Then cut a long piece of ribbon (make sure the ribbon colour matches the flowers btw) and start to wrap it around the halo, to cover the green stems.
Add flowers as you go a long, wrapping the ribbon around the stem of each flower, one after another.

Bundles of 3 flowers also look really nice every so often. Just put three together really closely without wrapping the ribbon around the bundle until after they are all on together.

Nearly done!

When you get to the end, make a loose loop around the halo, which you can then push the end through, in a way making a loose knot. Then with a needle and thread sew the end in place.
(Btw, if you run out of ribbon halfway through, just do this, and cut another peice of ribbon, sew in place, and carry on!)

Favourite Pastel Dresses

These are my favourite celebrity outfits which I've made a mental note of, which are all pastel coloured!

Sienna Miller in Thakoon bustier romper with Jimmy Choo heels. I love this outfit with the rose-pink tinted glasses, they give a quirky 70's vibe to it.

Dakota Fanning looks stunning in an Elie Saab Spring/Summer Haute Couture beaded dress, especially with the nude suede heels.

I love the simplicity of Kate Bosworth's Calvin Klein pink dress with 3/4 length sleeves. The crinkled texture adds a refreshing casual look aswell.

Dance me to the end of Love

One of my favourite photoshoots ever its so beautiful.
'Dance me to the end of Love' by Yuval Hen for 'How to Spend it' magazine.

Collared & Sleeveless

Seen as its so hot you don't want to wear long sleeves, yet you still want to wear something with a collar? Well the blouses below with no sleeves but collar seem perfect, I've seen a few people out and about with this kind of thing going on.

The Peter Pan Collar Tunic, £28 from Topshop, is my favourite with it's soft round collar. For those who like their collars pointed, American Apparell have a sleeveless shirt in a really great selection of colours (as always!) with a mesh feel to it. I would personally style the pink one with a flirty skirt, perhaps in light blue or gingham, and for a harder look, the black one witha leather mini skirt and heart print tights.


One of my summer looks!
Crop top, topshop, skirt American Apparel, long horse on a clock pendant OU.
I'm LOVING flower halos, so much that I made this one myself, I'll tell you how to make one soon.
