A Style Post – Tropical Print Dress and two-strap shoes.

Hi All,

S/S’12 and all those great new trends and colours we’re yet to wear! I wear black and navy blue so often that I long for bright colour pops when spring comes around.

Trend-wise I love the Tropicana prints at Stella McCartney, Salvatore Ferragamo and Dior. Tropical prints featuring palm trees, parrots, surfers and even mermaids (Versace), in shades of bluem green, colablt and teal.

Colour-wise, I love the  shades of rich blues and greens; I presume that when Spring / Summer colours are presented each year very often they’re pale pastel shades so as not to alarm us? Pretty but also pretty plain. I prefer the bold strong colours that filter through as the season progresses.

And boy am I getting ready to wear them. The dress is vintage, it was knee-length and I chopped and hemmed it to mini-skirt perfectios, the pockets are awesome, more pockets in dresses please! – to anyone who’s listening…

Now I’m of the nearest Tiki bar for a piña colada, while I wait for some tropical sunshine.
