HOW THE FRILLS AND FLORAL TREND GOT INTO MY WARDROBE

FLORAL TREND 1

It’s the age old cliché, as the cherry blossoms start to bloom, so does the spring/summer floral trend.  How does the casual, jeans and tee minimalist work the floral trend into her look?  Equally how does the no frills girl wear… well frills? (more…)

CYRENA MONIQUE RAY BAN

I have very few obsessions in life; number one would of course be footwear (I’m such a cliché) and a close second would be eyewear.  I have a whole box of glasses in my wardrobe/studio, both optical and sunglasses; all of which I have worn at some point and do still wear depending on my style/mood.
