Wow, this is really a stunning dress from the Canadian designer, Joseph Ribkoff. Usually, I shy away from anything that is remotely synonymous with the brash, blonde ex landlady of the Rovers Return, but let me tell you, there’s absolutely nothing Bet Lynch about this gorgeous dress. Once on, it feels luxuriously silky: the ruching across the tummy area, hides a multitude and it falls nicely on the lower part of the knee. Style No: 143872 Priced £218
And at the minute, I am getting plenty of wear out of my Monari ‘Grace’ tunic (style: 800191), It’s easy and luxurious to wear, yet light-weight. I either team it with Monari’s skinny-leg trousers(800018), and flats on a sunnier day, or for rainy days: with my fabulous Michele Magic jeans, in black, (8379) and ankle boots.
With the weather being so indecisive at this time of year, it’s hard to know just what to put on, isn’t it? I’m sure by now, like me, you’re fed-up of your summer clothes and are ready to jump into those winter woollies! Chilly mornings encourage me to follow my heart and don the knitwear, but by lunchtime I’m left feeling a little hot under the collar, as the Indian summer proves its staying power.
For ideal transitional pieces check out Monari’s Straight Leg Jeans (Style: 800668) in grey, teamed with Monari’s long sleeved t-shirt (Style: 800291) over the ‘Grace’ jumper (Style: 800065)
The Autumn/Winter stock will shortly be heading into the shop! Do you think we’ll get any wear out of our summer clothes this year? In the meantime, I’ll be heading off to pick more beautiful designs for you lovely ladies for NEXT summer!! It’s so exciting..looks like the monochrome, black & white is still very strong and when I come back from the exhibitions, I’ll be able to tell you what other colours will be gracing our wardrobes next year.
