I am truly crushing on the designs of Danish label DAY birger et mikkelsen which was founded in 1997 by Keld Mikkelsen and Malene Birger. DAY is focused on creating beautiful everyday garments with detailing, fine embellishments, embroidery and overall great tailoring. One of the reasons I am so fond of their designs is because they have a sort of ethnic, cultured look about them.. and the campaigns are simply flawless. x
Love love love the fresh shapes and styles of this season. Chloe Spring 2010 runway show portrays this beautifully with elegant, yet relaxed pieces. And don't forget the ponchos!! It's like a love child created by a fashion-conscious mexican and a gorgeous hippy girl (: (ifff that makes any sense at all). I would wear ALL of these with a smile on my face and a flower in my hair. x
A while back I had the pleasure of watching "Happy-Go-Lucky", a bittersweet comedy starring the lovely Sally Hawkins, a british actress with an adorable, yet edgy style about her. I recommend the movie, it really is one that lingers in the back of your mind (in a good way!) and search for Sally - one of my favourite rising stars! x

Every time I spy an outfit designed by Luella Bartley my heart skips a beat. Luella defines my style completely! Feminine prints mixed with glossy belts and tailored jackets, frilly bits and bobs, ruched detailing, not to mention the much loved Gisele bag. Ah, how I love to look at the pictures and wish I was a Luella girl frolicking through the candy-coloured tulip fields. x
