Back in London town from my Easter break and the SUN IS OUT!! If you’re wondering why I’m so excited to see the sun…well! It’s April, still windy, cold and miserable in London and finally the sun greets us! Hell yeah, I’m going to be ecstatic! 😀 What did you guys get up to? Anything exciting?!

Here’s hoping spring is just around the corner and the snow doesn’t make a comeback *fingers crossed* because this Spring it’s all about some flirty fun! I plan on wearing lots of colour, quirky prints and sandals. My feet are dying to breathe! Talking about fun and flirty, who loved Burberry’s heart prints visible through see through skirts as modelled by model-of-the-moment Miss Cara Delevingne.

Safe to say, not all us fashion lovers can afford the extortionate prices of Burberry but us humble fashionistas can improvise and look else where to other brands who can cater to similar tastes! With all the major fashion weeks having given us full blown doses of fashion back to back- there are brands who have taken inspiration from the catwalk and offered us fashion lovers something to look forward to wearing this spring/summer!

A brand that has just hit my radar is Max Studio. Although an established brand since 1979, it has been quietly successful and looking at their current collection- there are definitely pieces I would want in my wardrobe! Their Spring/Summer 2013 collection has some inspiration pieces from the likes of Burberry like the heart-printed jacquard trousers and shorts.

Looking around the site, it’s very easy to navigate and what I look out for on any fashion website are the VISUALS. They need to be crisp, detailed, stand out and colourful! They need to shout at me to look at them…not even look…GAWK at them! And this website does that. One of my favourite dresses from their new collection is this printed geometric number. I just love the colour combination and can think of a number of ways I would wear it- with some amazing accessories! Ah I’m getting giddy with excitement thinking about how many looks I can milk out of this dress. After all, we are still in throes of an economic downturn dah-lings so got to be smart about it as well, y’know!

Also love this red dress! Perfectly fits the fun and flirty look for the coming season! Love the sheer panel details as well. And for someone who is conscious about their upper arms (ME!!), the cap sleeves coupled with the  pleated skirt give a flattering look.

Now ladies, it’s crunch time. Yes, we are going to talk about the monies! Now these clothes don’t come cheap. The geometric print dress is retailing at £99 where as this red number is £175. These are not your run-of-the mill purchases. You spend this sort of money when you’re giving your wardrobe a makeover. And since we’re just at the cusp, where Winter is (HOPEFULLY) bidding farewell and Spring is stepping in, I have a feeling a lot of us will be going for that uplift very soon. I think if you’re good with accessorising then you can re-work these pieces over and over again! Trust me I do that all the time and people still ask me if I’m wearing a “new” top 😉

All in all, I’m impressed with this brand and will be keeping a close eye on these guys! Who knows I may end up adding a few pieces myself! 😉

Check out their Spring/Summer 2013 collection and see if anything catches your fancy. Have you bought anything from these guys before? Let me know how your experience was and what is your opinion of this brand?

Till the next time my beauties! xxx

Nothing like new additions to your jewellery collection. What makes it even more special is your friends gifting them to you and they know what you’d like!! Totally in love right now.

The ring and leather wrap-around bracelet is from Juicy Couture. Now this brand is quite controversial where some people call it “chavy” (non-english people please google the word :P) BUT!! In JC’s defence I would say I for one love most of their jewellery, may be not all of it but all the ones I’ve bought myself and I have been gifted I just LOVE them. Plus the pieces I’ve got don’t have any OTT branding on them so they’re great pieces and ones to keep! Yeah if you’re going to wear a JC tracksuit and UGG boots then I’m sorry but that would be classed as “chavy”. But you have to make sure you wear the brand the right way. FYI! you can never wear Paul’s Boutique the “right” way. That brand is “chavtastic” as it’s best! I think I’ve over done the word “chavy” in this post.

My bestie knows what works for me! 😉

If you’ve got cash to splash then you have designer options like Hermés, Chloe, Celine and Cartier etc. I have spotted the Hermés cuff bracelets quite a lot and it is on my wish list!

Check out a few I’ve spotted.
