Looking radiant in Toast.


If you are seriously intent on finding the perfect clothes for you colour must always take precedent over shape and style.  The style may be just the very thing you are looking for but if the colour is wrong you will always look tired and a little jaded.  You will probably find that the item never really comes out of the wardrobe.

My eyes are feasting on www.toa.st at the moment.  They are running the most gorgeous shade of blue that rescues me from the winter blues and lack of sleep.

This colour is not for every one of course but as you become well aquainted with your own set of ‘wonder colours’ you will be able to spot the perfect item at 50 paces!



Colours for Spring 2015

Colour is the food of life and just to whet your appetite I offer these glorious combinations taken straight from the Brora site. Brora have had a ‘make-over’ and their site really is quite enchanting. Browse  www.brora.co.uk for the latest Colours for Spring 2015.

The above little selection of cashmere is the perfect palette for a soft, cool and light girl – the perfect example of tone on tone combinations.

Underwear just for you

This little snippet is taken from an article in the recent Harper’s Bazaar.

‘La Perla knows so well how to mix elegance and seduction with comfort.  Perhaps this is because it was founded by a woman, the corset-maker Ada Masotti, known in Bologna s ‘Golden Scissors’ for her ability to cut and tailor underpinnings.’

I certainly think a lot of underwear brands miss the point. All designs seems too blatant and too obvious.  This bra, however, is beautifully subtle and alluring. It can be worn both with straps and without. The colour is well considered. The peach toned slip is constructed from Georgette and satin and the decollete is covered in tiny pearls all hand sewn using a soutache techninique.

Now this little number is certainly daring and most definitely revealing but maintains an air of sophisticated seduction. It shows a corset effect at its very best.  It is available in black but somehow loses its appeal unless in this sexy, flesh tone.

La Perla is by no means a budget buy but it will last when treated with care.

‘Good lingerie is the quintessence of femininity and secrecy is part of the pleasure.’
