S/S12 Aqua and Mint: Dreams of Minty Fresh Grins, Lions and Vintage

Mint Green Sheer Lace Dress, Lavish Alice, £26.00.
This is the perfect combination of an innocent shape and more daring lace. The green is subtle and smokey - it would look great with bold eye make-up, clashing tights and killer heels.

Blue Colour Block Curve Dress, Own the Runway, £16.99. 
Another dress I've got my eye on is this stunning aqua number, almost the colour of toothpaste, which is inspired by the  structure of Kate Winslet's bold Stella McCartney body-con choice, called the Octavia, that the actress wore to two industry events. It's been updated for S/S2012 at Own the Runway with the crisp colour blocking of aqua, black and white. I think some grey accessories would really set it off.

I found this rusting metal last spring and it reminded me of the Lavish Alice dress - vintage, delicate and almost sea green in colour.

Meanwhile this oxidised copper door decoration of a Boston townhouse reminded me of the colour from the Own the Runway dress. I also like how the ornate design of the lions is completely different to the minimalism of the dress, but both images use curves to great effect. The difference is that the door looks as if it might bite you.


  1. Absolutely love the colour of that dress!

  2. That first dress is the cutest thing ever, the greens work so well together.

  3. Glad you both liked the dress as much as I did! It really is a great shade of green. Very classy.
