spring has sprung!

S p r i n g !
It's a little bit difficult to believe that I am as excited about the arrival of spring as I am, considering the fact that it has rained the past three days...but I couldn't be happier for the change of season! This winter has been the coldest Australian winter in 16 years so it has been very unpleasant for me and my holistically weather inappropriate wardrobe. Recently I have found myself having a few make-believe online shopping trips, wishing and wishing that I could afford my three favourite spring collections du jour:

i/ T w e n t y - s e v e n n a m e s - t w e l v e !This collection I have rambled on about before, but seriously it is just beautiful. It's allure just grows on me every time I look at the collection. I could actually buy at least six of the dresses, I love them so much! My favourite is the nude dress to the left of the first picture followed by the white to the right of the same picture. I would love to fill my spring wardrobe with a colour pallete of nude, lilac and white.

ii/ S e c r e t S q u i r r e l - D e e p B l u e S e a !This is I think my favourite SS collection to date! I love the simple silhouettes paired with the printed fabrics. The whole collection just looks beautiful and fresh...I love the blue dress in the first picture, the collared blouses and all the pleated skirts/dresses ( An SS classic!) The whole collection is perfect for summer! I just love the juxtaposition of all the white and the navy blues in summer- gorgeous!

iii/ T B A - a / w 2 0 1 0 !I think the newest TBA collection is the one which I am going to end up forking out the money for, the dresses are just too perfect (and not as expensive as TSN) Although it is an a/w collection, I think that most of these dresses are pretty much transcendent of all seasons and years. The dresses are inspired by 'Edwardian Tea Parties' which pretty much has me written all over it. For a long time I considered buying the olive green "Flo" coat which is beautiful but then I moved my interests to the crem de la crem of the collection---the mushroom "Evelyn" dress.
As of now, however, I think I have to make the choice between the navy blue or the emerald green velvet dress with the white organza collar. I wouldn't mind paying the money for such a beautiful and timeless piece which I would wear for years to come
