In The Schedule

Hope you all had a wonderfully refreshing weekend... here are some links that I was wandering through during last week.  And refreshing being the theme...

Alexander McQueen Dress, Azzaro Leather Gloves, Givenchy Suede Clutch / Ph Kevin Sinclair
+  What's your tip for wearing a peplum?  Let's refresh with these gorgeous looks cover flounced softness on dresses and structured flares on jackets - more than enough inspiration for you waistline!... via FGR

Aurelio Costarella Dress / Ph Holly Blake

+ Some behind the scenes shots taken during the recent Myer Spring Fashion launch via Style Me Romy.  Love these gorgeous Aurelio Costarella gowns!

Tom Ford Dress

+   I admit, I'm an avid Downton Abbey viewer... can't wait for the series return!  And my favourite character is Lady Mary played by Michelle Dockery, seen here in the pages of Harpers Bazaar September issue.   A refreshing look from the delicate, beaded, lacy gowns from the halls of Downton Abbey.   How does one get skin so clear and luminous, isn't she just stunning?  ... via 

Versace Haute Couture / Illustration Lotty Rose
+  During the recent Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, online fashion site Trendland invited UK illustrator Lotty Rose to attend the shows and document the weeks proceedings with her fashion illustrations.   Capturing outfits from the catwalks of Armani Prive, Bouchra Jarrar, Versace with a blend of colour, whimsy, and elegance.  More images here via Trendland.  Talk about a dream job!

+  A complete master bedroom update from Cup of Mai with the addition of a little bits of yellow and a zhush... voila - a completely different vibe.  An easy refresh for Spring!

Wishing you a great start to the week ahead xx...

Peplums are not for me so there is no use from me in that department ;-)

I love the Lotty Rose link, I'll be enjoying that one with my latte and biscotti later today (biscotti in the oven as I write this).

I hope your week is off to a good start.

A coverage of the fashion weeks through illustrations, I love that. Lotty Rose's illustrations are beautiful. Not a fan of the peplum, but that editorial shot, that one I like. I think peplum is best worn with a pencil skirt, but it's not for everyone. :)
