A Little Brit Feminine.

Miu Miu, Dolce and Gabbana, Mary Katrantzou, Alberta Ferretti…. just some of the designers who featured floral prints in their Spring/Summer 2011 collections.  I’m craving summer right now, the New York winter is bitterly cold and I find myself dreaming of the sun, the beach and garden parties already.  This may be what’s driving me to the madness of standing outside in the garden of my Manhattan apartment in this dress from Mango, which I bought in the ASOS winter sale just before I left London.  When I wear colour I like to wear bold colour like deep reds and bright blues – this dress was described to be a “burnt floral print” and I love the combination of the reds and pinks in the design.  There is a little ruching just at the side of the dress which, along with the skinny belt, gives it great shape.

So, we have here a little bit of summer in the NYC winter.  I also really like these pictures because they show the multitude of mirrors in the garden of the temporary apartment I’m staying in.  The mirrors continue all the way through the house!  I’m renting from an artist who has done great things with a small space.  There is even a little chair and table in the garden which, come summer, looks perfect for drinking (bright ruby) cosmopolitans in the evening sun…

Wearing: Dress from Mango, (bought from ASOS). Shoes, Dorothy Perkins, as before.
