This season is full of new and exciting trends, for example animal print, tangerine coloured clothes, and full on denim. It seems every design pops out at you, no matter how simple it is. My favourite trend of the season though, must be Rainbow Nation. Rather than choosing one staple colour, it's a great idea just to showcase the lot, you can really express yourself. Usually, I don't often follow whats "in" or not, as you shouldn't have to overspend on something that will really only be popular for a short period of time. Rainbow Nation though is easy find, as i'm sure everyone has a range of colours hiding somewhere behind the winter blacks and beiges of their wardrobe! It would also be very easy to shop for cheaply and on the highstreet. Here are a few the best eye popping looks i could find.

designer, hot or not?

do you ever just look at items of clothing, and imagine what it would be like to wear them? i do all the time. its alright buying vogue every month, walking past all the designers in sloane square, and watching the kensington women in their dress up, yet sometimes i wonder what it would feel like actually being able to afford all this. sure, you can buy it at discount, or fake ones in foreign markets, but thats just not the real thing, so somehow it's just not quite satisfactory. the sparse designer items i own are technically not mine (ssh), stolen from my mother, they nearly fit. so, if any or you are feeling a bit like me, then here are some beautiful highstreet sales, hopefully affordable!
