Carven’s Technicolour Dream Dresses (and shoes and bags)

MAN! the Carven Spring 2012 collection made me ooh and aah with every dress, every shoe and every backpack. looking at each piece made me think of myself as a teenager – my sixteen year old self would have loved to dress like this every day. that’s not to say that 28-year-old-me wouldn’t want to dress this way every day… it would feel like i was always on a summer holiday, on the search for my next gelato.

oh and don’t even TALK to me about that mustard leather dress.

Only 4 allowed

i’ve been holding back on posting about the NYFW spring 2012 shows because i always go completely overboard and end up basically re-posting the whole of style.com over here. so i decided this time that i would pick only 4 pieces from some of my favourite collections – outfits i would actually wear / dream about wearing. jill stuart was the toughest to pick from, she really knocked it out of the park with this collection.
