The top who could fly

One of my childhood dreams was meeting the boy who could fly. I thought that maybe I could jump on his back or something and we could go flying together. Whenever I watched that movie I cried. Which brings me to yet another flying marvel by Sneak design. I just love the way the embellish their clothes with blimps, hot air balloons and other magical flying contraptions. Is definitely the next best thing to meeting the boy who could fly, who would no doubt be some washed up bitter has-been these days any how.

Bringing blimp back

Nobody wants to be called a blimp. Unless they have seen this top. Then they absolutely know that blimp is the new black, the new ironic asymmetrical hairdo and the new old school push bike rolled into one oasis of smokin' hot coolness.

Summer wear that is not floral

Is it a top? Yes! Is it a dress! Yes! Is it perfect for a hot summer's day when you really don't feel like wearing a summer frock? Yes!

Satu's versatile summer piece. Fabulous.

Solid Gold

When I was a wee lass, all I wanted was to be on Young Talent time. Those were the glory days. Danni was the famous sister, hair crimpers were todays Ghd and mastering the art of smiling while singing was de riguer. If I couldn't be on YTT, the other job I thought would be pretty cool was to be one of the Solid Gold dancers. Which brings me to this dress. It's not quite the same as appearing on an 80s talent show, but it's gold right? Solid gold.

Sneak peak

As much as I love donning a crazy outfit, I don't know if I would have the courage to wear this headpiece in my daily life. If nothing else, it would be very inconvenient when paired with a cycling helmet or while walking under low hanging branches. These Sneak design dresses, however. Definitely! I love the way they are simple and versatile, but with so much potential as both the perfect picnic and party dress. And the orange ribbon shoulder straps. Brilliance.

Lino Royale

Yes. I am a brooch addict. But though I have quite a collection, I am always on the lookout for more, more, MORE. Inspired by Victorian style stained glass windows, each of these pieces by the super talented Betty Jo is named after an English queen. A perfect way to add some oomph to a simple outfit, or just layer on the summer colour.

The evolution of sparkle

The devotion to all things sparkly begins in infancy and continues throughout adult life. Sparkle worship is established in the brain's cerebral cortex and stems from an evolutionary characteristic that creates the illusion of a happy and fulfilled life. Characteristic's of a sparkle devotee include a spring in one's step, a warm smile and a twinkle in the eye. Secret Squirrel are well known amongst sparkle types for their clever ability to integrate shimmer into daily life.

To tan or not to tan...

With the racing season well under way, everyone seems to be talking about not horses, but the tan. Of course, it's considered the height of hideousness to get a, heaven forbid, real one that makes your skin all leathery and cancerous, and when faking it, one must avoid a streaky orange hue at all costs.

Thankfully, this lovely tan bag by La Petite Poulette comes without all those bronzed skin dilemmas. It's simply a stylish streak-free tan accessory that will carry all your stuff and not ask questions. Ideal.
