White Cut Out Detail

Ok, this is a different kind of LWD as this has a cut out detailing at the front and a massive one at the back. But I tell you, it is super comfortable and airy, naturally. This is ideal to wear in the beach, in the garden or in a party though it requires loads of confidence since there is no place to hide a normal bra. You have to be creative how to protect the front but the fabric is double lined so you can just let it go without wearing a support. As I mentioned tons of confidence is all it needs.

Brown Suede

There is no denying the morning chill and afternoon breeze have slowly crept in the Southern hemisphere. Pretty soon I will be wrapped in heavy coats and flowy trench. While there are still warm middays and taunting sunrays I shall be donning sleeveless lace-up tops and crochet wedges.

Ruffles and Romance

You can get lost following the Spring/Summer 2016 runway trends if you don't know where to shop. The trends consisting of Graphic Stripes, Pyjama/Boudoir, Cold Shoulder and Ruffles are housed at the hippest and most reliable online store - Farfetch. Its slogan '400 Boutiques, 1 Address' aptly describes this swish shop. No need to visit multiple sites to search for that most coveted frock nor create several accounts to complete your wishlist as Farfetch has it all. Not to mention the latest fashions of the major designers can be found in this store.

So excited to team up with Farfetch to showcase the Ruffles and Romance trend. Think of flamenco ruffles, cascading tiers and frilled capes, this trend is mesmerising us all with its Victorian influence. So here are my picks on the different dress styles all with ruffles and flares, and how they shine even more with the right shoes, bags and accessories.
Zimmermann blouse
Who wouldn't love Zimmermann? It only requires one glance and you know if that dress or bikini is Zimmermann. This Aussie label's take on ruffles is of another level, with sophisticated femininity and yet delicate original prints.

Self-Portrait dress
Etro's luxe couture can never be mistaken much less copied. This Italian fashion house is best known for its detailed paisley patterned design and the featured ruffle mini dress above just prove my point. 

And who hasn't heard of Self-Portrait? Well dressed celebrities and fashion bloggers are globe-trotting with these feminine and urban-inspired pieces. The intricate lace signatures with price that doesn't intimidate, nothing is stopping the rise of this fashion label.

Maxi dress has been and will remain a staple summer/spring dress. This Ferragamo maxi is an epitome of elegance, class and comfort. Need I say more? One look at it and you can get the picture.

I enjoyed browsing the website so much and curating the pieces that by the end of it all I was convinced it's all for me and I just have to add them into my cart and proceed to check-out. So I had to do a reality check to brush off my delusion :) But I hope you can relate my ohhhs and ahhhs looking at these ruffle trend sets. After all, they are beautiful statement pieces, bewitching and oh so sought after.

Black Silhouette

Unlike typical dinner dates with solitude and pure enjoyment with each other's company this one we had was chaperoned by our toddler. Due to lack of babysitter we're left of no choice but to tag him along. In fairness he made us last from entree to dessert although we had to shorten each course and just barely made it. I had to dress up for the night in black as opposed to our anniversary lunch (previous post) where I wore the whitest of white.

White Lace and Promises

You may wonder what is this about, how can a lace dress connect to promises? Such a strong word to incorporate with outfit and fashion :)
