The Alexander Wang Jersey dress is my favorite...so simple and chic, so you can go crazy with accessories if you want. I also love the Christopher Kane scallop dress and the Prada New Look tote.

I love peach pieces, there are one of the most refreshing things for spring. In a way they are like a sun-kissed version of the nude trend that's building up a storm right now. I was looking at that Christopher Kane dress at Net-A-porter just now and isn't it just beautiful. I admit, I didn't like it on the runway but it's simply stunning!

I guess you were thinking that you'd never hear from me again, oh how I have seriously missed your posts! Well as of today, I;m back :) so sorry of I bombard you with comments on past posts in the coming days.

Seeing these, I can't wait for spring! That Christopher Kane dress is stunning, but it also oddly reminds me of a salmon??? I also quite like the VS bikini, it would so perfect against tanned skin!
