Trends Twenty-Ten, Spew or Do?

Cargo pants: The last time I wore cargo pants, I was in year 6 and had a terrible Posh Spice haircut. To my own credit, I was totally ahead of the times with the POB, the only problem was it made me look like a rodent. But cargo pants have been reborn from the 90's. No longer are they baggy and daggy. I've been fantasising about the J Brand cargos Justine Cullen mentions in her Ed's Letter, in this month's Shop Till You Drop. The fact they're $329 is a minute detail.

Side plat: A certain, gorgeous Dutch friend of mine has been rocking the messy, side plat lately. If you have the thick locks to get a chunky plat going - DO IT!

Maxi skirt: I've yet to purchase a maxi skirt in fear of it making me feel frumpy. I know I'll get there, I think I just have the find the right one. Maybe one with vertical stripes to create the illusion of height?

Lace: My lace fetish is at an all time high, come and join my doily club! I think lace is so fem and cute.

Wide leg pants: Not to be mistaken for the hideous elephant trunk. High-waisted, wide leg pants are super stylish. I have a great pair of grey, wideys from Zar Zar.

Nudes hues: Nude is the new black, apparently. But don't over do it, you don't want to wash yourself out.

Tie-dye bags: LOVE. Shan bought me back a Marc Jacobs one from NYC, he's so pretty I'm too scared to even use him in fear of spilling food on him. He's the coolest thing I own, he's pastel colours and reminds me of a rainbow paddle pop.

Strappy elastic flats: These are popping up in shoe shops everywhere and are so comfy. I got myself a pair of hot pink ones from Zara kids and am going to live in them this summer.

Cropped tops: It's time to clean out your belly button lint ladies, because cropped tops are back! For the ultimate combo, pair a LACE cropped top with anything high waisted.

Summer playsuits: Any kind of clothing that pays homage to the childhood years, is a winner with me! I'm yet to find The One, but have been keeping a keen eye out for a fun playsuit I can frolick about at festivals in.


  1. glad u love the mj.
    beige definitely is the new black.
    can't wait to rock our stretchy sandals at work together.

  2. Is it just tie dye bags or is any kind of tie dye product in?

  3. ONLY BAGS. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT purchase any other kind of tie dye!

    Haha, I joke. No the tie dye trend is not exclusive to bags.
