Be On Trend, Dress for the Season and Keep Warm…

...in this cold British Spring 2013... The weather is said to be the most disengaging topic of conversations ever. It's definitely the most thoughtless and uninspiring of conversations, ideal for filling silences and the perfect small talk with people you don't really care about, but where fashion is concerned the weather is a big deal. Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter; if there's one thing that fashion is dependent upon for its success it's these four elements.The seasons are indeed what keep the fashion wheel spinning and in turn keep us fashionistas from going crazy, because let's face it, we fashionistas depend upon change. In the winter we sit at our desks at work fantasising about balmy summer evenings after a day in the office spent on roof top bars overlooking the capital adorned in the latest spring summer trends, with Tom Ford sunglasses perched on our noses and polished toenails peeping out of strappy sandals. Once summer eventually turns to autumn we romantacise...

Spring Bling! – Prada’s Spring Summer 2012 Ad Campaign

Looking through the spring summer 2012 ad campaigns this week, I noticed one particular trend - there seems to be a whole lot of shimmering, glimmering spring time bling featured in many of the designer's campaigns. Being a complete devotee of beautiful blinging pieces, the more extravagant the better, I instantly fell in love with Prada's spring summer 2012 ad campaign - which is pretty telling, considering I am not usually bowled over by a Prada collections (barring the shoes of course), the way I am by Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs or Lanvin. So, I thought I'd pull out the most blinging fashion ad campaigns of the season...starting with Prada! Prada's Spring Summer 2012 Fashion ad campaign was shot by Steven Meisel and features fashion models Natasha Poly, Ymre Stiekema, Katryn Kruger, Meghan Collison, Elise Crombez, and Guinevere van Seenus. These brilliantly dressed women hanging out in the gas station looking super ridiculous and fabulously frivolous is exactly why I ADORE fashion!  I am...
