Yes despite the rumours of a cold patch coming our way in the Uk, I am feeling decidedly spring like, the birds are singing and all I want to do is buy large quantity's of Daffodil's. :)
Yes I admit this all may be a bit premature but I am already looking forward to the freshness that spring brings. 
Now I am not in any way a 'designer' person. Most of my clothes are from charity or vintage shops and I am also fairly cheap, as I am almost always perpetually poor! But what I do love to do is to look at the runways for inspiration, and usually there are a couple of stand-out collections that make me either want to rip the clothes straight off the models body's, or I spend hours looking close up at the details and how they were made. Ralph Lauren doesn't usually fall into either of those catigorys but his S/S 12 Collection made me stop and look.

Those beautiful palazzo trousers! The gorgeous spring colours! The delicate fabrics and beading! Drop waisted dresses! Cloche hats! 
I am now trying to work out what I need in my wardrobe to be able to waft through the summer in a Great Gatsby Daisy like fashion:) I think that might be why I love it so much, because it reminds me of that 1920 heady feeling. Its not really a silhouette I have tried before due to my curvaceous(!) shape, sticking to more flattering 1950s shapes, but I think this may be the summer of the flapper jess:) You were warned!
Speaking of Great Gatsby, how excited are you for the new film??? Love Casey, she is one of my favourite actresses, and I cant wait to see it! 


Happy Thursday everyone!


  1. All of those outfits are so pretty! Also, I hadn't seen any photos of the new Great Gatsby yet, but they look so neat! Carey Mulligan is always adorable and Leo looks SO handsome! Can't wait to see it!

  2. I love the romantic idea Lauren has!
