January is usually spent wrapped up and tucked indoors with the fire on, hot water bottles to hand, soft throws on the sofa's and copious amounts of tea. It's a right of passage - a semi hibernation, where you strike up a closer relationship with your Ugg boots than most of your family.
But THIS January has been so freakishly mild that it already feels spring-like! Daffodils are sprouting and the usual chill in the air (I may jinx the weather now) just isn't as harsh as it should be.
I think the spring/summer collections will benefit hugely from this, as everything hitting magazines and stores looks so fresh and pretty.
I knew Mulberry S/S 2012 would be a goodie! The ad campaigns never disappoint, but there is something so beautifully quirky and British about the latest collection being shot on Brighton Beach - the pictures are so well shot and look stunning.
On my Mulberry Wish-list for Spring/Summer are these two beauties!
The entire collection is lovely, and the Carven Spring Summer Catwalk show is well worth a look. This skirt is available here
Do you remember I recently placed a little Net-a-Porter order? Well it arrived!!
Valentino chiffon bow T-shirt - It is super soft, great for daytime and I am really pleased with it.
I also got a pair of fitted black skinny cords from Juicy Couture. They were reduced by 70% (final price was £34.00!). Best of all they were a cropped style - which means one thing when you are quite small ...... - Full length without having to pay to have them taken up!
They fit perfectly and I love the gold zip detailing on the ankles. They will work perfectly with my Sunday Girl for Firetrap Jacket.
I snapped a piccie of my Balenciaga City sitting with the new Mulberry Large Buckle bag just before I tucked the City away in her dust bag for a little rest. Don't they look sweet together! I can honestly say the Balenciaga is the one of the best bags I have EVER owned - it is just so versatile so I know it will not be long before she will be back out to play again.
and finally, Madonna was pictured at the W.E London Film Premier this evening, wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier dress and a D&G Cape. What do you think? Does she still have it or does she now just look like your mad Aunt Maud?? Let me know your thoughts on her !
