Pastel Pout Power

THE shade of the season is the perfect Pastel Pink. A gorgeous smooth chalky pink with a very modern feel for 2013.

pink

It’s been a style staple of mine for some time so its great to see the shops packed with such a wide variety of colours. From pale bubblegum to candy neon, pastel pink suits everyone. It gives you a fresh look that isn’t too ‘done’ – a chilled Summertime feel, perfect for poolside or on the dancefloor. It looks like you haven’t tried too hard = while all around you girls ask – WHERE did you get that gloss?

The Great Gatsby

Gatsby chic is almost here…….“There was music from my neighbor’s house through those summer nights,” F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote. “In his enchanted gardens, men and girls came and went like moths, among the whispering and the champagne and the stars.”

Baz Lurhman’s movie The Great Gatsby is on general release in the States right now –  coming to the UK next week on 16th May.

The fashion influence has been a long time coming – the first hints of flapper chic were visible on the runway during New York Fashion Week in 2011 and the fashion world has been paying homage to the roaring 20’s ever since. It was such an  opulent time, the cocktails, the beading, the sequins, the glamour  – so enjoy it all!  20’s fashion has even influenced the current major metallic trend!

The Great Gatsby costume designer Catherine Martin has created some incredible outfits for the movie. There has also been a Tiffany collaboration – wow! We are all waiting in anticipation!

But until the release we can all recreate our own speakeasy glam with these gorgeous items……….

Gatsby Chic…….Rock one of these stunning frocks to your next party with all the beading, delicate lace and shimmer –  and feel amazing. This incredible nude flapper dress from Jigsaw (£325) is a major investment piece, beautifully made and just oozes glamour! Topshop have the ultimate little black flapper dress (£160) These are party pieces that will work well now and all the way through until Christmas.

Pale creamy skin is Gatsby style – and there’s no better foundation for this than Chanel Perfection Lumiere, light reflecting amazingness, long lasting with an SPF (£36 – Harrods)

Add the perfect pink blush from Dainty Doll – especially made for pale skin by none other than major UK fashionista and member of Girls Aloud Nicola Robertson.

This look needs a dark red  lip and NARS Fire Down Below is a great shade. The semi matte formula is ideal for the 20’s look and is set to be huge this year. Semi Matte a la 90’s – is where’s it at.

Statement jewelery is a must and this stunning vintage necklace from Max & Chloe (£77) is perfect. Emerald colored rhinestones are interlocked with multi stranded ball link chains accented with vintage filagree beads.

This flapper cuff from Amrita Singh (£52) is an easy way to add a little 1920’s chic – gold plated with enamel detailing and austrian crystals – beautiful.

Choose a pretty sequinned headband – this Daytrip glitter band has the right feel – just £6.79 at Buckle – www.buckle.com

Finally complete the look with a delicately beaded handbag for authentic 20’s feel – The Kardashian Kollection has this gorgeous number – £30 at Dorothy Perkins.

Grab a cocktail and get your Gatsby on!

Be gorgeous!
