Stripe Me Happy…

Stripe Trend

Stripes are springing up on Pinterest…. street-style, bloggers and celebs all getting their stripe on.

Olivia Palermo takes a coffee break, layering a monochrome top with a chunky crystal, statement necklace. Blogger and lifestyle guru Natalya of Five Five Fabulous rocks off-duty stripes at Fashion Week in Paris. Grazia snapped this stripy goddess at New York Fashion Week, working the stripe trend from head to toe. I’ve already bought the shoes and skirt in this edit, so just the necklace, top and bag to go then!

Voting time for Whitney Port Comp…

Remember a couple of weeks ago I posted about The Venus Goddess Competition to design an outfit for Whitney Port? Well it’s time to vote and I’ve decided to chance my luck and submit a design.

Golden floral skirt material

All designs must show off Whitney’s lovely legs (and who wouldn’t be envious of those pins?). I’ve plumped for a floral print, silk skirt with embroidery to the hem and layered details highlighting Whitney’s tiny waist. Teamed with a fluid, silk jersey, sleeveless top with gold embellishment to the neck and a gathered, deep v-neck back with metallic trim.
