Thought of the Day

I don't believe in morality, but I believe in ethical conduct as set out by His Holiness the Dalai Lama: "Ethical conduct = a way of behaving that respects others’ right to be happy".

Inspired by VOGUE :: Total Lilac

February issue of VOGUE UK shouts Spring from every pore {involuntary synaesthesia}. The cover colour, lilac, is, by antonomasia, associated with Spring blossoming: it flowers in May and symbolises LOVE.

This Melissa peep-toes designed by Vivian Westwood are embellished by a giant green ball which makes these sling back whimsical and fun. They would be perfectly teamed with this cute Camilla Norrback Shirt Dress. It has got puffy sleeves {a detail I personally adore} and is adorned by a discreet bow.

Camilla is a young Swedish designer who produces garments with ecological or environment-certified natural materials, from cultivation, to processing and colouring. 

Melissa shoes are made in Brazil in socially and environmentally responsible factory from recycled material and are completely vegan. 

Both available at Fashion Conscience

It's adorable. In fact, I think I bought this issue just for its cover. Natalia's eyes are hypnotic.

You know I'm a fan of Melissa shoes, but this is the first time I see such a marvellous style. I wonder if a flat version has been designed as well.

I agree. They are adorable. Lilac is such a perfect colour for Spring, muted and yet lively. And the sphere is really the cherry on the cake...
