60s vibe

Lately, I seem to be loving the 60's fashion vibe. A lot of the stores seem to be reviving this era. From leopard prints to A-line dresses and tunics worn with leggings or opaque tights and flat ballerina pumps. Leopard prints seem to be appearing everywhere - from faux fur coats/jackets to shoes, bags and scarves! I'm still on the lookout for a faux fur leopard print coat. Come on Evans, you recently sold out on a leopard print faux fur coat... you must restock!

Anyway, I just love the 60's A-line dresses with peter-pan collars. They look great worn with plain black opaque tights or leggings and either flat black pumps or tan lace-up brogue shoes - these are my current favourite footwear! I even try to style my hair and make-up with a hint of 60's vibe. Hope you enjoy reliving the 60's fashion trends!

Here, I'm wearing an A-line dress with animal print peter-pan collar. Worn with black leggings and my black bow ballerina pumps. Let me have your comments on this trend.

Biba Fever!

I've been a fan of Biba 60's and 70's fashion for a while and was really excited to find out that Biba had relaunched their range recently. With the realaunch, Barbara Hulanicki's designs do not disappoint. I love the sparkly dresses and of course the animal print faux fur coats! Here's my homage to the Biba maxi dresses of the 70's. This dress is from Evans, but it has elements of the Biba style - long maxi dress, floral print and long buttoned cuff sleeve, and is in a chiffon fabric.

My christmas hit list!

Hi all. Lately I must admit I've been feeling a little lazy! I blame it on the sudden cold weather that descended on us recently in the UK. I've been doing as much as I possibly can not to come down with a cold which means wearing many layers of clothing and keeping away from anyone who show signs of even the slightest of sniffles! I have had a little time today to put together my 'Christmas' wish list! Yes I know...dream on, but you never know, Santa may be feeling a little generous this year!
