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.

spring is in the air

Each season has such beauty, but spring is pretty special in my opinion. I think it’s the shift from the melancholy of winter to the renewal of spring, the earlier sunrises and the blossoms appearing on the trees like confetti on a bride’s veil. I snapped off a few sprigs of jasmine from our neighbour’s hedge (shhh!) and that deliciously heady scent fills my office with promise of the new season’s growth and awakening. Have a marvellous weekend and enjoy some spring inspiration here today…
