Don't channel Pocahontas

May 27, 2016

For me nothing says Summer like Turquoise (and a little gold);
Mediterranean seas, Greek islands, balmy nights in get the gist.

Turquoise jewellery looks great with just jeans and a t'shirt 
or dressed up for the evening. 
Either way it can look fab without  
leaving you looking like Cher in the 70's.

There is no best way to wear turquoise but if you don't want 
to channel your inner Pocahontas , then I suggest
sticking to one statement piece rather than lots of hokey
cheap pieces.

On the other hand as the colour is very strong it can be 
worn also as delicate pieces

Colours of Capri

May 2, 2016

One of my most favourite places in Europe
(possibly the world) is the island of Capri.

I absolutely love this place. 
It's my go-to when I need a shot of 
Riviera glamour.

To sit and people watch in Capri
is like being in an old Carey Grant or
Sophia Loren movie.

One of the things I love most are the 2 principle
colours in Capri-yellow and blue.

Dolce & Gabbana did a range (a few years ago) 
called Maiolica Limoni which epitomises 
the very essence of the colour palette of this beautiful island.

How can you not think of gorgeous Mediterranean seas 
with this stunning statement ring.

Nothing adds high-octane Summer glamour like some 
animal print. Get up close and personal to these rings here

I would love to hear if you've been to Capri. 
If not, where is your go-to place to get a shot
of glamour (excluding Paris ;-)
