t’s that time of year again where I’m off around London for the Spring/Summer press days. It seems bizarre that in these suddenly baltic temperatures, I’m checking out floaty dresses, swimwear and flip flops! Earlier on this week I went to the Almost Famous
press day which was held in the press office of their store on Percy Street. I only discovered this brand in August but it’s already a firm favourite of mine! As soon as I walked into the room I was hit with a blast of colour. Once I recovered from my initial excitement attack I checked out their pieces in more detail. Lace! Oh my so much lace, but in neons and pastels. I couldn’t love anything more this season than lace (albeit dark and gothic for AW13) but I am so pleased they have created so many lace pieces in fresh citrus bursts. One of my must-have pieces is this gorgeous tangerine lace printed statement blazer (above). I can just picture wearing it with my trusty washed out boyfriend jeans, a tee and simple nude strappy heels. Another item to add to my wish list is the cobalt blue lace applique dress (which does also come in cream, pictured below). Cobalt blue is huge for next season and the intricate detailing of the applique is just too pretty to resist. Obviously having always been a neon freak, I also fell head over heels for the neon yellow lace pencil skirt…I want to wear this now! I’d soooo rock that for Autumn/Winter with a black chunky knit and black ankle boots. There’s plenty more besides lace, we’ve got some Matthew Williamson-esque peacock print, delicately embellished shell tops, some tweed textured blazers and an array of bold technicolour summer dresses to last you the whole season. I just can’t wait for this collection to be released! Check out all my pictures below and see which are my top picks from this colourful SS14 collection.
