VANESSA BRUNO, ROCHAS, LOEWE IN NEUTRAL GEAR, IT'S TIME TO LIGHTEN UP......get the look for less!!



THE  fashion world has called upon
 a new simplicity.........


A breath of fresh air has entered. Clean, uncomplicated, pale and interesting.

Pure like ivory and putty, bronzed and buttery like molten caramel,  sun-bleached like rose gold
and a NEW nude.

Worn head to toe, it is the ultimate in sophistication. Mixed with stronger tones to add punctuation to an outfit.

Strike the balance right adding a hint of 
TEXTURE.

And by keeping accessories to a minimum this is a look that will work for you not just this season, but for many years to come.........




Rochas : Spring/Summer 2013

    

                          

                          

                          




Loewe : Spring/Summer 2013

                          

                          
     





The MAGIC of neutrals started for me sometime in the 1980's, when I would see women beautifully dressed in stunning understated caramel tones.

The label they were wearing was Max Mara, and try as I might to replicate this look on the cheap.......it was no good  (my budget back then didn't really expand much beyond £10 a week for everything!  And so it would have taken me a very long time to save approx £400 for one of their iconic coats, etc!)

   
                                                                                                         
  • Max Mara: Spring/Summer 2013



But  there was something so delicious and effortlessly polished about these women, that I fell in love with everything about the look.
 The cloth, the tailoring, the touch,it had the edge.

 I did many years later come to own one of Max Mara's coats, and it still sits it my wardrobe today waiting, coming out when the need is right, and still looking like the classic it always was!

Max Mara, still continues to give us some beautiful timeless keepsake pieces.

I have to confess my hopeless stalker addiction to
Vanessa Bruno, these are the pieces I want NOW!


But as every girl knows, what a girl wants even if she say's please loads of times, a girl just doesn't get........IF, she ain't got the dosh!

So what does she do?

Seek and you shall FIND girlfriend!

  4. I absolutely agree with you. Neutrals, somehow, have the power to make you look effortlessly chic, clean, and contemporary. As much as I love color, I'm really developing an affinity for more neutral colors. Thanks for the options as well!
