DVF spring 2016

Hello! Yes, I am still in the land of the living. I’m in the throes of an exciting creative project which has been gobbling up my time, brain power and energy levels with an insatiable appetite. I’m feeling a bit like elastagirl at the moment – stretched! Inspired? Yes! Daunted? You bet! I’m looking forward to sharing it soon, but for now, please excuse my sporadic posting of gorgeous things as of late. I sometimes think that I could do with being one of those paper dolls that are cut out of paper and held together by folding tabs. I could just duplicate myself and accomplish it all! Ha ha. I must just make sure that the shape I cut out of myself has a lovely dress pattern. If I’m going to be stuck in the same frock, it had better be a good one.

Talking of good frocks…the latest collection from the queen of the wrap dress, Diane von Furstenberg, is beautiful. Chock full of springtime prints in confident colours reminiscent of an Indian summer. Think saffron, fuchsia and indigo.
