On My Mind for Spring...


(Louis Vuitton SS07/ MbMJ SS09)

1. The Liberty Print



Although I had a bit of a setback with my winter collection having massacred my hand and all, The Crosby Dress and some winter versions of the Fontaine Dress will make into my shop not too long from now. I have of course been thinking and collecting things that inspire me and my spring and summer pieces and while I am planning on a rather restrained color palette using whites and ivories I somehow inherited 2 pieces of liberty print cotton shirting that I have really grown to love. Of course the floral print has been a bit of a wardrobe staple for a couple of seasons now but now that some has accidentally come into my possession, I feel it's my duty to make some lovely goodies with it. What in specific? I haven't totally decided... we shall see :)

Wow. Totally love that Emma Cook dress. I tried to find one on sale way back when but she's not that well distributed in Australia. Can't wait for your shop update!

I really loved that Teen Vogue editorial when I first saw it!
I was pretty dissapointed with the Spring 09 shows but those floral Nikes are so cute!

Lovely images, I'm also thinking spring is all about sweet prints and pretty hues.

OMG you read my mind! I was just looking for liberty fabrics to make my own shirt for spring. I was thinking Phoebe or Claire-Aude but with a club collar.
