D&G has always been one of my favorite luxury brands, I came across these images of the Milan Fashion Week D&G Spring - Summer 2011 collection. The collection is perfect for summer days spent picnicking in the garden. The collection has unearthed its gardening roots with floral maxi-dresses, bikinis, and canvas bloomers. Models held bags stuffed with towels, miniature watering cans, and D&G pink and purple gardening gloves, and wore red and green rubber "wellies" and four-inch platform soles.
The collection takes you on a garden adventure, with lavender, dahlias and roses, in the prettiest and most fashionable forms. Above are some of my favorite looks, in particular I am in love with the floral Maxi dress<3 !

I found this great maxi dress, I love the design and color!I just had to wear it right away:) This week is a 4 day week! All South African are doing the "Happy Dance" because it is a long weekend!Cannot wait...We are celebrating Heritage Day more well known as "Braai Day".
Have a look at the new gorgeous gadget in my handbag, its from Iila Security and yes it looks like a key ring, but its not, its actually a personal alarm….called the ila Dusk which can be used if you find yourself in a sticky situation where you may need help. You pull the chain on the end and an ear piercing scream is released! Someone is bound to hear it and react. I love the fact that they have combined safety and a style to a gadget....This fashionista definitely feels safer!
Hope everyone has a safe and fantastic weekend!

On my trip to London back in May, I landed up going to a market in Greenwich. I picked up this gorgeous bell-shaped ladies hat inspired by the 1920s. The lady who sold it to me, claimed to have made hats for the Harry Potter movies. Love the bright colour of my hat! I am finally able to wear all my great buys I picked up in London, like the butterfly top I am wearing which I have mentioned in a previous post.
You will notice the beautiful daisy's growing in my garden,they were a definite inspiration for my Outfit pic. You can't help but feel happy and alive when you walk out of your house and the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming beautifully and the birds are chirping away!

It's officially summer, there is just so much more energy to think of new ways to wear your hair, personally I was just to cold in winter to do anything so now I feel inspired!
Time to pull out all the cute braids and wavy summer beach hair! This is a very exciting time. Here are some looks that I am loving right now...it is so unfortunate my GHD and I are best friends..this friendship will have to be on hold for a while!
One look in particular has caught my eye, Braids which are all over the catwalks, so in order for me to perfect the boho trend, I will need to try out some different styles. I am going to get all twisty and go for hippy chic braids this summer!It is so refreshing to see these great styles, personally in winter my hair only has two styles, tied up or loose...I don't even think these are considered "styles" in there own right:)
What are your favorite hair trends for the summer?

I just couldn't wait to wear colour the minute Spring arrived, I mean Winter somehow always tends to be such a dark season with all the browns and blacks. So I decided on my peach top. Peach is a colour many people are scared to wear, which i don't understand. I love how it reminds me of tropical islands.....Wow that caused a five minute day dreaming session.....back to my post now:)
I am a big fan of tops which have tulip style sleeves,it creates a flattering girly look, like the one I am wearing.
Notice I have tied my wedges over my skinny jeans:)Love the way this looks! Oh I must mention how delicate my earings are, I fell in love with them but they are a made from thin shell, so they have a special suede bag for storage:)
