I hope you had fun and memorable New Year celebrations.  Now that we turned the corner into 2012, I find myself thinking about my wardrobe and what new places I want to take it.  The following is a summary of the biggest trends for Spring 2012.  (1) Pretty pastels are the colour palette this season. Tip: Try playing with light, colour-blocked looks in sweet ice cream shades. (2) Water-world-inspired etherial gowns. The best examples of this trend were the coral adorned dresses of Alexander McQueens collection. (3) Exposed midriff. Tip:  Keep the belly button under wraps, exposing just a tasteful flash of skin below the bandeau. (4) Art Deco flapper cocktail dresses. (5) 50s couture shapes.

What I’m wearing:

  • Beaded dress by Marciano
  • Patent leather bow pumps by Valentino
  • Multi Chill Scarf necklace by Swarovski
  • Purse by Chanel
