Colour Blocking is here to stay...for AW11/12

Well, I for one are so pleased to see that we will be seeing the continuation of colour blocking this Autumn/Winter. So please don't feel the desire to wrap up in greys,blacks,navy blues and browns this season, throw caution to the wind and brighten up your Autumn/Winter wardrobe

Intense oceanic blues, vibrant lipstick fuchsias and firelight oranges ripple through the collections. Worn head to toe in expansive dresses or full length coats, the impact of this colour wave is akin to being visually electrocuted. The fabrics are as rich as the colour is concentrated. This colour ‘bang’ won’t work if the material is cotton or linen, it needs the sturdy powerful dye-fastness of silks, suedes and wools.

I was shopping today in Claires Accessories ( it's school holidays so I was dragged in my by 7 year old daughter! ) and their new collections are in, great little fake leather handbags in cerise pink, bright orange and oatmeal.....a great accessory to brighten up any outfit.

More tomorrow, its time for the revival of the 70's

Lots of love
