So you see it too...(this is your OMG moment)....if you dont then your eyes will not be needing the bleach bath mine are now crying for.
Seriously? is this necessary? Was the designer high on something (yes Suzie Wong, were you on cheap drugs?) or is this simply a production error? The dress doesnt just look like a night dress... its a night dress with a ..... (you can fill in the gaps yourself thank you very much)
Nevertheless, if you are daring and want to buy and WEAR this dress (perhaps to the Vagina Monologues) and dont say hello to me when you are wearing it, then do visit the Asos online store.

The Atomic Colours
Honeysuckle pink - Pantone colour of the year 2011/2012 and still going strong!
This is the amazing blue colour smalt! I wont say more - watch out for this colour and the unique way I am going to be introducing this colour to the collection.
You are going to join me to say Smalt rocks!
And the gloriously warm Voices of Earth colours - I love the chillis so much! they are so insistent and strong and alive
Lemon leaves - the perfect smell.... the waxy smoothness of these leaves, their vibrant green.... I love I love I love
Terracotta - these reminds me home... of wet clay after heavy rain... of West Africa... of my colour.... of me...
and I am in love with this mix of terracotta and Chocolate
So get ready to step out in these colours in 2012!

There has been one underlying obsession though and its with the retro, 50s look, the full circle skirts, prim blouses, dresses with flair skirts... honestly I cant seem to get this look out of my head and last week I made a skirt that will totally find its way into the upcoming collection...
I have taken pictures of myself in this skirt and you can look forward to seeing this skirt in the collection as a skirt, part of a dress... dont you just love the shade of yellow? There's a bit of colour blocking going on here too... but I dont think that will make it into the collection - finger's crossed!
I'm going to try and not wear this skirt everyday.....

Imagine my delight to find that I dont have to be a doctor to carry a doctor's bag!!! thanks fashion trend... now I can go around town looking distinguished! I'll simply pretend my make up kit, wetwipes and novel are more the more useful surgial tools carried by doctors - and sashay around town feeling rather smart!
Check out the doctor's bag I'm drolling over from no one else but River Island and they are terribly affordable! what excuse do I have for not getting them...
Although if you would rather spend a bit more... payday treat and all that then this Giorgio Fedon Bag is the way I would go. It even looks like a croc died somewhere for it to exist. I am not a fan of crocs!
I have also fallen in love with colour blocking especially in shoes...and Larin speaks to my heart with this Colour Block Platforms
The beauty of colour blocking - I love bright colours with a passion so this is one trend that is totally up my lane... totally!
I am in the process of making myself a fabulous circle skirt in bright yellow or orange... will be back to post that here

It seems to be a fashion blogger now all you have to do is take a picture of yourself in the crap you wear everyday and put them up on a blog and we will all rush over to look at these pictures and leave you fantastistic comments about how daring and stylish you look!... I blame google and wordpress and all the other "have your own blog in 5 minutes" platforms.
Seriously? is the world now full of people who want to do nothing else but stare at and comment on what you wear?
While blogrolling today, and I mean checking out real fashion blogs, I keep stumbling on these "Check-out-what-I-am-wearing-today, yay-I'm-standing-in-a-field-of-grass blogs" They are endless in number and some of them do dress so horribly! so so horribly! and sometimes they are downright plain!
And yet these blogs are full of "what I wore today, 30 for 30 days, the crap I bought last week, a few pictures of me in a door way in Copenhagen... *rolling my eyes now*
Dont you need to have a fabulous wardrobe "worth drolling over" anymore before you decide to crowd cyberspace with pictures of your funny outfits?
I give up.... later loves....
P.S: I have a lot of respect for anyone who is able to look amazing doing the anything between 5-10 for 5-10 days.... that takes creativity and some style... 30 for 30 days? oh pulease.... thats a lot of clothes! whats creative about that?
