We love our big brands, but we also love a bit of independence… and considering that we are on the 4th of July, we will celebrate by showing of the work of an independent designer. Kelly Love, which happens to be the perfect name as we love her designs!
All these delicious designs are from the Pocket Full O’ Posies range:
Inspired by outdoor games from a child’s imagination, nursery rhymes and picnics in the meadow, along with the contrast of old fashioned femininity, vintage lingerie and 1930’s cocktail parties. Grown up fantasy exists in layered dresses with exclusive prints, crochet collars, pleated jersey in dusty rose, French antique lace and olive jacquard spotted silk.
Although the garden of England is full of gloom, rather in full bloom (we are still rooting for summer sunshine, but this is more of a washout than when we do rinse out our conditioner on hair day! BOOOOOO! *thumbs down*).
Our pick had to be this Floral jumpsuit, we think teamed with a blazer this is the perfect way to be summer fresh, without risking your lovely legs with this manic depressive weather. Seriously, we wish it would make a decision and stick with it!
So, a modern classic outfit, deserves some modern classic make up. We love this look Elsa Andrade by Xi Sinsong for Elle Vietnam, July 2012. If you fancy going bold on the eyes. If you want to go full on creative we love this tutorial from Kristiana Z.
If you are in more of a conventional kind of mood, then this from Beckys Blog is the one for you. We love this Rose Quartz dramatic eye, pretty with the drama!
We are getting high, but only in the ponytail sense of course! We love this Nicole Richie inspired look!
Holding onto the country garden theme then we are all about this sweet country nail tutorial. It’s all coming up roses with this from Melinery
