They also helped to design her clothes which were always an endless topic of local conversation as she never could resist appearing at everyday functions in elaborate fancy dress. The black velvet, fur hat and ear-rings of  Russian Grand Duchess, the livid greens and yellows of Bakst ballet dancer, taffeta bustle and Alexandra fringe, Mandarin tunic and trousers, making each its appearance on some most inappropriate occasion aroused each in turn, among tweeded local ladies, a storm of discussion and criticism, the repercussions of which reached Mrs. Lace, by no means displeasing her.

Spring 2017 Trends: Rainbow

To be perfectly honest, embracing all of ROY G. BIV come springtime isn’t that much of a trend–we all know things get lighter and brighter as the sun returns with full force. So here are some rainbow outfits just for fun!

Spring 2017 Trend Report: Belts

Both myself and CF advising editor Lydia were coming of age where belted everything was a trend–cardigans, blazers, and skirts with a belt were a wardrobe staple for us for years. Lydia observed that we are “so there” for belts, trend-wise. We’re happy to see this trend come full circle, and evidently designers are too since this was one of the most popular looks we saw this season.

The Olsen twins have a serious problem with diversity–their lookbook above is no exception. They very rarely feature models of colour. At least they’re offering fetching obi-inspired belts.

The simplicity of a minimal black belt as seen above and below lends a surprising amount of definition and edge to an otherwise sweet dress.

Note that belts featured heavily in both of Miuccia Prada’s lines–Prada and Miu Miu.

Love the juxtaposition of the prim belt above with the undeniably glam lurex dress at Vanessa Seward above.

Fantasy Wedding Dresses

I’m getting married in the next year or so, here are my dream wedding dresses if money was no object.



Above: I love this Dice Kayek Resort 2017 dress. It’s simple, and I wouldn’t have to worry about complicated underwear.

Below: I love the structure of this Simone Rocha Spring 2016 dress, but obviously I would have to re-work the top so it’s not sheer.




Above: I love the idea of wearing separates. I love the skirt from the Luisa Beccaria Spring 2016 look above, and the Rosie Assoulin Spring 2016 look below. Just a matter of finding a different top.




Above: I love the simplicity of this Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2016 dress

I want a cool-weather wedding for sure (hard pass on wedding season, thanks), so long sleeves are just practical.

Below: My utilitarian bride look from Alexander McQueen Spring 2016


Below: Another super-simple dress, this one by Kate Ermilio from her Fall 2016 collection.




Above: I love, love, love the blooms and bright colours of this dress from Emilia Wickstead Spring 2016

I’m not wholly committed to wearing white, if I see a colourful or print dress that I want to be married in, I’m going for it. These three dresses definitely caught my eye–perfect for a party, elegant, and memorable.


Above: This Valentino Resort 2017 dress is mostly white, tea-length, and the print is just enough.

Below: Love them long sleeves and tea length, plus black and gold for maximum drama? This Marchesa Notte Spring 2016 dress is amazing


Below: This Raquel Allegra Pre-Fall 2016 dress is the most casual on this list for sure, but hey, if all the wedding planning drives me crazy and I’m too stressed to get into something more formal, I would definetly wear this.




Above: This Rosie Assoulin Fall 2016 dress is definitely the most recognizable as wedding dress, and I do really love it. It looks like it presents some logistical challenges underwear-wise, but I love all the structural details.
