Kimono Trend for Spring

Spring is fast approaching – time to break out those flattering loose fitting kimonos

Kimonos were trending last year and look to be just as huge in 2016.  Their lovely flowing lines are a natural fit for the 70’s style invasion with flared legs and chunky heels.

Brenda MacLeod: Glamour of the Bag

Today I’m showcasing the amazing handbag designer Brenda MacLeod

“Brenda Macleod is a luxury women accessories brand. The brand was created to provide good quality, ethical and stylish handbags made with great attention to detail for the modern and confident woman who loves functionality, quality and minimal styles.

Designed with passion in the inspirational Highlands of Scotland and handmade with love in Florence, Italy, every handbag is a fusion of quality, style and impeccable craftsmanship.

We select the finest leathers for our production, focusing on luxurious natural leathers. Natural leather is tanned using only natural vegetable dyes, there are no chemicals involved in the tanning process, no buffing and no artificial finish. This means that every piece of our leather is allowed to retain its individual and unique patina, and being such a natural product will age beautifully with deeper colour tones.”  Read More…

These are extremely well-made, timelessly classic, and look incredibly sturdy.  Prices range from £160.00 ($225.99) to £655.00 ($910.00) so while not a budget price, they look well worth the investment.

Cropped Flares

Can you pull off the trending cropped flares?

I have to admit that I don’t quite have the figure for this look – being on the curvy side and of limited stature, this look just doesn’t do me justice. That is not to say that they don’t flatter some figure types.  Make sure to “own” this look – make it a deliberate statement and pair them with just the right heel.
