Hi sweetheart,
this is a gorgeous collection! I was so lucky to had found the green Gucci kimono a while ago... But was too afraid of wearing it - the fabric was soooo, soooooo fine. Then decided to let it go.
The DIOR lace printed Trompe D'oeil coat is amazing, as well as all the items from that DIOR collection!
Please come back again, I've added a picture of my vintage Valentino sunglasses, especially for you!!
Huggies,
S.

NutriGirl said...

Another beautiful post! And that scarf would be such a nice addition to any spring-summer wardrobe. Reminds me of Missoni...
Talking of outnet... Saw Miu Miu bag for £160 last night, almost fainted and then realised it was sold out... :(

Enjoy your day, my dear (though it is looking pretty miserable out!).
