Mon LOD ! My little orange dress …

You often here the term LBD or little black dress and how much of a wardrobe staple just one garment can be. However, from my recent adventure to Los Angeles I found myself something a little different, a little brighter, … Continue reading

Hibiscus Florals

Sometimes when the weather is absolutely horrible and depressing I open up my closet, sit in it for awhile and then pick out the most brightest or boldest item I have.

Something so different to the weather outside just to lift up the mood a little.

The Star of today’s post is a very summery,very fresh, batwing/kimono-sleeve Shirt.

I Picked up this beauty when my friend from Melbourne was down to visit.

We were casually having dinner at Darling Harbour when the sight of these beautiful Hibiscus printed tops and skirts captured our attention (and of course it was an impulse buy).

Now Every time I look at it I think of her and how we had such a great catch up in such a short amount of time ! ❤ you Bianca

Orange and white hibiscus flowers printed on a peach base. Perfect for Spring/Summer

For those of you who are enjoying Spring/Summer now (unlike us) a floral printed shirt like this is definitely a must-have !

Two reasons – 1 is that you can dress it up and make it very day to night as you can wear it buttoned up with a statement necklace – something gold and chunky.

2 is that you can unbutton it like in the picture, for an everyday casual look.

Just add a plain camisole underneath and a loose single pendant necklace.

If it gets a little chilli you can even add a brown scarf.

or even a lightweight metallic thread one.

Voila ! All set for the day ahead !

For accessories, as mentioned you can play with the orange, pinks, ivory browns and white palette’s – always fun to play with pastels. As well as mixing it up with little splashes of gold or antique gold.

Something new-vintage would look great with this like a small boxy bag, any shade of brown leather or like I have added a nice orange off-the-shoulder bag.

Let Fashion Show Your Beautiful Side

Women are bombarded everyday with slick magazine covers of perfect women looking stunning in today’s fashions. The reality is that most of these women have the same flaws as everyday woman. Today, you can learn to love your body and feel confident and beautiful with the right clothes and accessories whether you’re tall or short, skinny or curvy. Beauty comes in all sizes, colours, and shapes!

Candy Couture

Pastels, bright colours, bold, and whimsical prints are the highlights of this summer’s fashion trends. Not to be ignored is the breezy and spunky bohemian look with a chic flair. Choosing a great handbag and the right women’s shoes will smooth out that great outfit. A great outfit will make you feel confident and ready to take on the world. Feeling confident should be a 2012 summer movement allowing all women to bring out their inner fashionista for the world to see.

Ms. Glam

Neon colours are also going to be all the rage. These fun colours along with a fabulous pair of shoes to match are sure to make you feel upbeat and outgoing. Don’t be afraid to be daring and bold with a little colour this summer. Nudes and beiges are fabulous and soft, but step out of the box and show summer what you’re made of.

One of this summer’s hottest colours is bright orange! If you’re a curvy woman, choosing a slightly tailored dress or pant suit in a soft pastel or small floral print will give you a slimmed look. Show the world that you can still wear orange by adding an orange handbag and heels. You will love how you feel with some bold colour accents. Accents make an outfit and you make it absolutely gorgeous!

San Torini

Maxi dresses are fantastic for women of all sizes. These flirty, long, flowing dresses will make you feel both comfortable and chic. Large, soft floral prints compliment any figure. Choose a smaller handbag and low heels that will keep your look breezy and carefree.

Have fun this summer and step out of your comfort zone by trying something new and trendy. When you feel beautiful, you project that confidence onto others and they will see your beauty too. Step it up a notch with fun prints and bold colours. When you look good, you feel good, but when you look great, there’s nothing you can’t do. The new you is waiting, so lets show her off to summer!

Colour me … ORANGE !

So I know there hasn’t been much action on behalf of Summer in Australia But the Final Month of Summer will soon fade into Autumn. If you haven’t already noticed, the trends in store are shifting to Burgundies, Reds, Tangelo type shades(orange-reds), eggplant colours – deep purples, liver reds and browns, mustard yellows, pure whites, bursting Blues and as always our beautiful BLACK. It’s going to be a wonderfully colourful wardrobe this coming Fall/winter.
Having completed my fall/winter collection, I’ve started to grow a new love for these shades ( p.s the photo-shoot will be taking place this weekend so watch this space for some awesome pictures from the new FALL/WINTER 2012 RATAVOSI collection) However, one colour that has made its snug way into my wardrobe this summer would have to be ORANGE !

I was going through my wardrobe, bits and pieces of the Ladakh/Anise collections, new and old Glamour, and Sportsgirl – and noticed I have matching tops, Bags and even shoes !
Unlike Orange, My favourite colour of all time, Turquoise, has had a hard time making it  there ! I guess I’ve been FAR TOO PICKY ! Not too worry though as it’s still within the palette’s in the coming seasons !
