A Splash of Turquoise – A Splash of Coral

Turquoise and coral are such beautiful summer colors, I just can’t stay away from them… Can you feel the warm summer breeze already??… The long skirt floating around your legs???… Now, add a splash of coral to your wardrobe:

Or turquoise, if you like…

And off you go to your first summer backyard bash of the season!… Awww….

Add Some Spring to Your Wardrobe

After these past couple of days, I have a feeling that my long lost, most loved season friend Spring might indeed be right around the corner, just waiting for the right moment to finally emerge from wherever (s)he was hibernating! Not sure about you, but my fingers (and toes for that matter….) are definitely crossed BIG TIME! No more snow, cold, frost, … pleeeeaaaase!! It’s been enough now! The white on the ground and the black on us people have got to go – it’s time for a big splash of color!!

So much fun to play around with all those pretty happy spring and summer beads! Perfect with this season’s trend colors!

Mouthwatering Vintage Dresses

I just finished a fun round of virtual hop, skip, jump  – from my blog to Modcloth to A beautiful mess to Bloglovin to Twitter to Modcloth’s blog ending at Sally Jane Vintage, where I could not take my eyes off Orla Kiely’s Spring 2011 collection. Look at these dresses!!!

I wish I could just take them right off my screen and stick them in my closet, especially the cream and the orange one. Would take the shoes also – even though they look suspiciously like sitting shoes. Bit high for me to be standing around in them, let alone walking. Holly in Heels, have you seen those already, I wonder? Next candidate of shoe crush of the month maybe??? …

Would also make a great wedding or bridesmaid dress.

Fashionable Statement Dress

Ok, elephant friends, if you feel like shouting out to the world that and how much you adore elephants in a fashion-forward kind of way, you have two quick and easy choices: you could either spray paint your forehand with “I love elephants” in one of the trend colors of the season or you could go, get Jean Charles Castelbajac’s dress and absolutely no words would be necessary. It’s got gray, it’s got yellow and it screams elephant louder than any human could ever shout!

Dress: Jean Charles de Castelbajac

Hoping this guy will trot by my closet one day and become a member of my herd…
