Even More Samantha Sung

So I love Samantha Sung and so do a lot of people but that hasn't stopped the provincial snipes. Well of Course! Bloody good I say! Means im doing my job. This dress will never appeal to Bev`s will it?...Thank God! Grandma chic! Why not? well if the lady below was my grandma I would nick her wardrobe.  Check her out. Fierce. Nice shoes, slim ankles. Shoes like hers are expensive and need to be kept so. Also like the cardigan which also happens to be Samantha Sung.

I dont know who this cool chick is but she is photographed in a super cool store called Carrots in the U.S

Samantha Sung - More Fans

It looks like it isnt just Kirstie Allsopp who loves Samantha Sung dresses but also Lulu Guinness. Check her out rocking the Audrey dress while attending her AW12 press day. Sharp as ever. It got me thinking about Samantha Sung  / Lulu Guinness Bag combos. ( see my selection below)

 Samantha Sung & Lulu Guinness  = A perfect fashion love affair

Pyrus & Petit Bateau in the Press

Some press girls have been hard at work. Petit Bateau and Pyrus are both featured in this months ( May ) edition of British Vogue while Petit Bateau was also featured a few weeks back in Stella Magazine ( Sunday Telegraph)

 Harriet Quick`s guide to European  Elegance - Capri style - May 2012 British Vogue

The Jungle Silk Crepe dress in the May edition of British Vogue. Also love the Day Birger Necklace. Might have to click onto Net a Porter for a quick look.

Petit Bateau top £49.00

The other great thing about the Stella feature is it styles the top with a slick blazer a bit like the one I have in  from East by East West and a leather tote by Sophie Hulme who`s bags  are to die for. And so much more original than the obvious designer " It" bag brands such as Mulberry. Not that I am slagging off Mulberry. I love there bags but like Barbour its all gone a bit emperors new clothes for my liking.

Easter Egg Hunt /Windows

A quick message to say that the annual Foss Street Easter Egg Hunt will take place this Saturday 7th April from 10.00am. Forms Are available at Simon Drew (next door) and The Canvas Factory. The competition  closes at 3.00pm with a massive Easter egg give away taking place just after. As usual Simon Drew is the resident MC and will be dishing out the prizes. My tip is to do the kids competition and leave the adults version as its all a bit highbrow, useless for a bimbo like me.

Also here are the pom poms in my window in various shades of Aqua. Easter fun and frills

Think Pink

I am going through a slightly strange girly pink phase at the moment. I blame it on the blossom. I am even thinking about getting a pink sofa. I did try pink out once on one of my bedroom walls (Farrow and Balls pink ground) but annoyingly it didn't work and ended up looking like an old folks home. Here are my favourite pink looks.

The Jil Sander AW12 show

Stella Tennats pink Scottish Bathroom ( Conde Nast)
Pale Coral Necklace at Pebble
Australian Vogue Living April 2012 Cover. I managed to track this  down at The Shop At Bluebird. It had sold out everywhere
