It’s been a busy week, but still managed to make my fashion observations whilst dashing around London.
The trends worth checking out and the ones to avoid…
Metallic shoes, comfortable with chunky heels. Yes please! I can run, hop and skip wearing these…no more foot torture.
Delicate pastels, pretty in pink and lovely sky blue…
Real life fashion: pink is an uplifting colour, there is a shade to suit every complexion. For an updated look lady Sarah wears pink with olive green or for more classic look some grey…and pearls. (no bows or frills, clean cut!)
The ballerina skirt trend. These are pure fantasy, which I invested heavily in. – would you believe it! – had one tailor made using wafts of grey chiffon pure silk. Pure delight. I ve been wearing it constantly for going out- and I can even cycle (sort of) in it.
Real life fashion: you can see lady Sarah’s interpretation of this as an afternoon tea outfit here. Lady Sarah wears this, with ankle boots and over the knee socks.
Florals reinvented. Do you like traditional English flower prints? Givenchy and CARVEN have some updates on the classic trend, mixing combat and roses..
Do be careful as I very nearly overdid this one, (got the floral scarf and the flowery sweater, one has to go back!) – ended up looking like a bouquet… Up coming Post…
Real life fashion: florals are easy to wear, but exercise moderation. It’s all very well mixing prints on the catwalk, but don’t try that in the morning.
…And some lovely botanical prints, from faliero sarti
Real life fashion: any time anywhere. A faliero sarti scarf drapes divine and adds colour and movement to simple monochromatic outfits! Instant update.
Fur is ‘in’ guys- apparently- we are ok to torture intelligent animals, keep them confined in tiny cages before we finally skin them. Such a classic look…
Real life fashion: Please stay away from me with this barbaric trend! No gillets, no hats, no what nots. Leave this abomination in the past where it belongs, together with other acts of poor taste and lack of judgement – look beyond the surface – think how this was made. And don’t let lady Beatrice see the coats, the poor darling will have nightmares.
