Part of a tribe or not – this is HOT HOT HOT!

The tribal trend comes back pretty much every summer . It is the perfect antidote to floral; a strong look rather than pretty but very colourful and sexy.

  

Missoni did a good job this year (above – all photos from Google search engine)

However my main tribal inspiration is Kelis and her video for Acapella – I am totally obsessed with it and can watch it over and over again.

Oh she does it so well! I am going to see her at Lovebox this July. YAY!!!  Admiring these amazing costumes made me think of browsing the net for some tribal inspiration and here is the best of what I found on Etsy :

And here is the beautiful lady in action – enjoy!

Spring/Summer 2011 trends – be different and buy vintage!

We all like to try new things in spring…there is something exciting about the new beginning –  the birth of another summer. Girls everywhere are starting to wear more colourful clothes, they smile more often and are coming out in flocks hunting for new trends.  Here is a choice of some gorgeous vintage stuff from Etsy.com if you don’t fancy hitting the high street.

1. GRANNY GOES SUPER CHIC!
