Cherry Berry Shades: | Autumn/Fall 2012 Trend
One trend I’m currently seeing this autumn/ fall is beautiful berry shades perfect for the season. The colours ranges from sweet magenta sweet shades to dark black cherry purples. Collections from Thakoon, Versus and Erdem and many more have all flaunted the beautiful berry hues. Combined with luxurious materials and textures it creates a look that is feminine, vivid and eye-catching.
Above are some berry coloured items that I think are ….berry nice (thumbs up for the terrible joke). Oh how I wish these would jump off my wishlist and into my closet…
IFB Project! “Be Uncommon”: | Fall 2012 Trend: BAROQUE DETAILING
Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) have challenged fashion bloggers to pull together some images from a chosen fall 2012 trend that could be used to inspire the design of an iPhone case and considering the amazing prizes up for grabs, I figured I’d give it my best shot. Luckily this happens to be one of the most inspiring seasons yet with a wide variety of beautiful trends out there to be inspired by.
My chosen inspiration lies in Baroque detailing. Collections like Marchesa ,Dolce & Gabbana and Balmain all use a combination of luxurious embellishments and materials such as lace, floral embroidery, pearls and crystals creating a romantic royal look that celebrates luxury, opulence and the finest craftsmanship in all it’s classical glory.
I think this look would make a great iPhone case because it will create a similar lavish look seen in popular swarovski phone cases but it will have more of a sophisticated historical flair and be much more practical as a flat phone case that will mimic the embellished textures and depth without the bulkiness and the limitations that come with a jewelled case.

Goldrush! : Friendship Bracelets!
So what I’m currently loving AND seeing everywhere in the fashion world is friendship bracelets!! I absolutely love them. I love the fact that they are not just a fashion piece but they also have a cute meaning behind them- a symbol of friendship (awwww). Now me personally I just like how they look and I like to make them for myself (I’m totally not a loner….) but they definitely would make a cute handmade present for your friends; and well if you don’t really want to get yours hand dirty, you can always buy it… Regardless of how you get it here’s some of my faves below:

Garden Soiree | Resort/ Pre-Summer 2013 Trend
Another trend I noticed in the pre-summer 2013 collections is the use of florals whether it be through embroidery, lace, prints or a combination of all three! The above collections are proof of this, showing just how versatile flowers can be:
- Jill Stuart - Minimal, Delicate with a modern edge - Elegant figure hugging forms are updated with edgy styling
- Valentino - *One of my absolute faves* Regal, Elegant, Colourful - Timeless regal dresses are given a splash of fun with beautifully bright summer hues
- Gucci - 60’s 70’s nostalgia Floral motifs and embroideries bloom on long flowing silhouettes mixed with shorter mod silhouettes

Summer Trend: Pastel Perfection
Marshmallows, candyfloss, maracoons and icecream have made it’s way into the fashion world (and no I’m not talking edible clothing, that’s a whole other ball park entirely) I’m talking about how the fashion world has taken inspiration from these confectionery delights to create a beautiful colour palette of pastels hues which have set hearts ablaze and mouths watering (…okay, maybe just me then). Many spring/ summer 2012 collections have used these fabulous hues, some of which can be seen below:
