Confession: I am quite lazy at following fashion. There I said it. I love watching shows, reading blogs and magazines. However, for someone as laid back as myself, constantly being a few seasons ahead gets confusing! Lately I've developed a habit of clicking myself to Vogue dot com to get my digest of fashion (in addition to all your lovely blogs!) and I feel that I'm on top of things for a change. So I've decided to start sharing some of my favourites from recent shows with you lot.
Here's my first edition; if it goes well (aka you don't hate it) I'll start to make it a regular on my blog.

Giambattista Valli, Spring 2012:

My eyes were drawn to the multitude of detail (lace, tailoring, texture) and the crisp white materials. The darker pieces were well suited for s/s as they too were incredibly light and floaty. I can see the sheer trend continuing well into the summer. The few pops of colour were a great continuation of the initially monochrome collection, and didn't break the cohesiveness. Great shapes, great prints.Overall very feminine and "expensive" as Alex Perry would say. 

Top 2:

The perfect party dress. If anyone's seen a cheaper version of this on,say, ASOS or something let me know!
The perfect summer dress. I would love to wear it on a picnic... if it wasn't so fancy.
