Jcrew lookbook 2011


    colours of spring


    colours of springI am welcoming Autumn to South Africa but summer seems to be quite insistent to stay a bit longer! It’s been SO HOT!

    All the readers up north heading into Spring, have you started buying any spring clothing yet? How pretty are all these spring lookbook outfits from Jcrew? They really always have the loveliest items of clothing. I just LOVE all these colour combinations and the bright lipstick!

    Ooh. Just imagine, no more stockings or boots or coats – just bare legs, and open shoes! For this you may require a pedicure to freshen up your feet a bit, may I recommend the new Essie Spring colours.

    essie-french-affair-nail-polishes-1-590essie-french-affair-nail-polishes-2-590Entitled “French Affair” and inspired by 1960s glamour, the nail polish shades are as flirtatiously coquettish as are the names. All of the feminine splashes offer opaque coverage, unlike most of the sheers we see come spring.

    The upbeat and fun shades include: Nice Is Nice, Coat Azure and the namesake, French Affair — which are all Easter-ready hues of lavender, periwinkle blue and a bunny light pink.

    Meanwhile, Topless & Barefoot, Sand Tropez and Kisses And Bises glamourize the neutral territory with shades of sandy peach, cafe au lait and iridescent neutral.
