A Sneak Peek in my-wardrobe
Spring is almost upon us (can’t come soon enough for the Style Compare team!) so it’s time to start planning those all-important investment purchases. I’m not one for splashing out oodles of cash on designer items, but having one or two quality pieces in your collection, and building beautiful and versatile looks around them, is a smart way to operate your wardrobe.
That’s why I was ridiculously excited to be invited for a private tour of my-wardrobe.com’s London showroom, where the best bits of the spring 2012 collection are on display. If you read our Style Platform posts regularly, most of the themes will be familiar; prints, nautical pieces, ruffles, oranges and corals, underwater touches and florals. But it’s the stunning individual designs that capture your imagination and make you want to whip out your credit card.
I fell in love with Moschino’s Cheap and Chic pearl embellished stripey cardigan, which looks fab with cropped navy or white skinnies and flats; Sonia Rykiel’s ruffle-laden, star print dress is bright, bold and gorgeous; I’d wear the See by Chloé floral devoré silk-blend blouse with Malene Birger’s cropped gold trousers; and even though I’m not a trainers kind of girl, the concealed wedge suede and leather “Bea” style by Ash is hot to trot. You can even own the ultra-girly Alice by Temperley cotton blouse as worn by Kate Middleton.
