Cacharel SS13 Ready-to-Wear

Today I'll be looking at something a little more summery; after all, it is the first week of summer here in Sydney! Be ready for some bright, fresh colours, romantic undertones and FAB sunnies...

Fave backstage shot
I love a retro, front tie that doesn't reveal too much!
Watercolour dress.
O what a flouncy, flouncy hem!
I am in love with the two panels over the shoulder and bust.
Plus, a perfect fabric choice that gives off a glow and glimmers with
light and shade.
Light and airy white dress.
Perhaps would have preferred it sleeveless...
I really do adore a good watercolour print.
Just the way it spills, darker shades here and lighter shades there.
A close up and my favourite buttons.
This is really playful/fun (ahem the sheer skirt and loud knicker-shorts).
The first of two fab summer shirt-dresses with an adorable,
buttoned-up collar.
This second one is more of a coat-dress but it too seems perfect for
hotter weather. 
An amazing strapless maxi. Gorgeous.
Anais!! in funky, translucent glasses which I love.
Oh and on a side note, the fr
inge: messy but trimmed, kinda cute. 
Wish I could try bangs but my hair is just too adsfgkl (frizzy, dry) haha :)

Looking Back: Valentino AW11 Couture

Hey! Another Valentino post, yay! And boy, do I have a couple more lined up for you. 
So what I really loved about this collection is the HAIR GAH so perfect. So dainty, sparkly and nature-inspired with an organic element. And the hair pretzel is lovely too.
Pretty make up.
Close up of the hair pretzel. How did they tuck the hair in the middle in?
Backstage. Must try the sweater-skirt combo soon (swoon!)
Lurvely textures from top to bottom.
Clean and simple with superb attention to detail at the neckline, waistline 
and sleeves.
Um. I'm speechless.
The fringed hem is boho-chic but at the same time interior-inspired
Whimsical. And what looks like a mermaid tail.
Close up, we see the criss-crossed lace and neck detail. 
Lovely and all but personally, I wouldn't wear it.
Somebody PLEASE tell me what these type of buttons are called???
Loving the sleeves.
Cape-like element adds an ethereal quality to the dress.
Adorable cape-like coat with slits for the arms (reminds me of 
fairy-tales) and plaited cording detail to complement the clean lines 
and smooth texture.
Dark, velvet-y, gothic, regal.
Ombre/gradient and sheer, both of which I am loving right now
Dainty pearl embellishment can never go wrong.
Buckles, yes! I quite like the way these look when viewed from front-on, 
but that's about it. Metallic lace, though; always lovely.
