MSGM Print Loving

Currently loving: MSGM prints. 
Good looking on the screen, even better in real life.
Who likes shorts?
Add a top, mix or match and say hello to Summer.
Now all we need is the sun.

The 'Panther/Monkey' silk top and Aztec printed shorts are by far my favourite combination. 

Just watch out for those Panthers . . . and Monkeys!

Although, I wouldn't say no to any of them. Would you?

My favourite Vogue feature: 'How We Dress Now'.
My favourite Miss Vogue feature: 'Saturday Night Fever'.

Designer Spotlight: Charlotte Olympia

Welcome to Charlotte's Web . . .

Charlotte Olympia Facts:  First full shoe collection launched in 2008 by designer & owner Charlotte Dellal. 
Prices range from €345 (to an eye-watering) upwards +++. This is a luxury designer brand, with designer prices - investment pieces. (More's the pity for my non designer friendly funds.)
The shoes sometimes have a feline look, but both shoes & now accessories are always guaranteed feminine with an added touch of ooh-la-la. 

From the designer's mouth: 'The higher the heel, the better you feel'. 
The Cherry Blossom Girl loves her velvet Charlotte Olympia wedges. So do I.

Are you a Horoscope lover? I don't know about you, but I certainly am. These Horoscope shoes from the Cosmic collection are most definitely on my in-your-dreams wish list. I'm Scorpio, but given that it's Taurus' time to shine, here is a very specific Horoscope written by me to all you Taurean's.

Had a tough week? Don't even think of staying in this weekend, pick out an outfit - put on a pair of lucky shoes - the Taurus shoe, go dancing and have fun. You might have a lot of fashion conscious admirers who - strangely enough - are looking at your feet. A foot fetish, perhaps? No. A Charlotte Olympia fetish. Just go with it, Taurus - you cosmic chick!

Collaboration from Charlotte Olympia x Olympia Le-Tan (Fashion's Night Out, September 2012). Remember to never judge a book by its cover. Unless it's an embroidered book cover clutch from Charlotte Olympia x Olympia Le-Tan. Go forth and exclaim 'Charlotte 'Olympia' Dellal is a crafty one'.

Designer collaborations are launching left, right & centre in the Fashion Industry at the moment, which can sometimes make them seem less exciting, however, the feeling for this new Charlotte Olympia x Tom Binns collaboration is pure love. Funky cat shoes with safety pin piercings, include some of the pieces in this collab collection.
A collaboration worth its weight in neon . . . and safety pins. 
Available on the 2nd of May.

Fancy a virtual, footprint friendly holiday? As the 'Toucan' flies, Charlotte Olympia Dot Com is a mere finger click away. Go on - go have a lust session.

Just don't forget to pack your sandals & pair of heels . . .

Mini Or Midi

 Bloglovin': Lee Oliveira & Tuula Vintage. Two Bloggers who are passionate about taking gorgeous pictures and showcasing even more gorgeous Fashion.

Jessica Stein has an amazing sense of style and she loves Asos - even better. These two dresses, one Mini in scarf print & one vertical striped Midi - which are still for sale in a multitude of sizes - are right up my Fashion Street.
I don't think I have ever wanted to make an online purchase/s so badly, which is a good complaint! If I had to choose, I would go for  the scarf print mini, and you?

Reading Marie Claire

Marie Claire is nothing new - it's been around since 1937, yet I can't even remember the last time I bought an issue - until now. This months Marie Claire (UK) is packed full of interesting content - my favourite fashion feature: The Denim Edit.

Buying Fashion Magazines are a bit of a treat for me nowadays, so when I pay €5-€6 for one magazine, I expect my money's worth. The front cover of a magazine may look amazing, but it's the inside that counts. (The freebies are of course, an added bonus.) After all, why buy when you can surf for free?

I am definitely going to buy next months Issue. But for now, I am going to appreciate this Issue and read about the New Rules Of Online Dating - God knows, I could do with some tips!

What magazine/s do you prefer to read?
