Little peep at 2012

Very pleased to see my most recent bargain buy on ASOS is very similar to some beautiful dresses and skirts with floral keyhole crochet detailing Louis Vuitton's Summer 2012 collection. And for €22!

ASOS Premium Shift Dress €22

Kate Moss and fellow models wearing pieces from the Louis Vuitton Summer 2012 collection

Lots of 50s housewife detailing in the Spring/Summer collections, knee length pencil dresses from Caroline Herrera, housecoats from Derek Lam, wasp waisted tweed jackets from Burberry. This is good news for average sized women everywhere, there is nothing more flattering than a knee length fitted pencil dress.

Alexander McQueen on the other hand doesn't seem to obviously reference any era. I think he is making fairytales for adult women, he is just pure crazy creative genius. If his Savage Beauty exhibition comes to London I am there! The black corset with stiff collar is almost exactly the dress I have wanted for years and never found. A little impractical if you plan on eating anything for the day but hey! Worth it!
