Two Toned

by cecylia on June 11, 2012

Happy Queen’s Birthday! I’m currently going through a de-cluttering phase. Selling everything from antiques to shoes just so I can breathe a little better is surprisingly cathartic. Consequently now I’m much more drawn to minimalistic shapes and details than my usual penchant for clashing prints and a more-is-more philosophy. Think Elin Kling, not Anna Dello Russo.

Currently Craving (Left to Right, Top to Bottom)…

Mason by Michelle Mason T-shirt/Marni Pumps/Chloe Ankle Boots/Jonathan Saunders for Smythson Diary

Christian Louboutin Pumps/Tory Burch Sweater/Newbark Clutch/Victoria by Victoria Beckham Dress

Sandro Silk Blouse/Pierre Hardy Suede Pumps/Markus Lupfer Sweater/Giuseppe Zanotti Pumps

Karl Sandals/3.1 Phillip Lim Tote/Jonathan Saunders for Smythson iPad Case/MCQ Alexander McQueen Cape

What do you think of the 2 toned look? Do you dig it?

And finally…the randomly selected winner of the stunning Susan Rep dress from our Monday Give-Away is Wanda! Congratulations!

Stay tuned, because the next Give-Away is also super delicious!

Loving the two-toned look, nice way to get some colour and interest to minimalist simple shapes :)

I badly need a clean out, just can’t push myself to get there. I’m half-heartedly adding a few items to the donation bag a week but that’s it.

Mica June 11, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Good to know I’m not alone! Every little helps right? That’s what I’m telling myself!
