Swan pattern inspiration

It’s really exciting at work at the moment. I’m producing such lovely designs  – if I’m allowed to say so myself? They are mainly for children’s and wedding gift-wrap, and I have created a couple of birthday designs. I will be able to let you see them, once they are in production, and they’ll most likely be added to my on-line portfolio, too.

I was looking for new themes, when I came across some beautiful, bird designs. Well actually, the type of birds that caught my eye, were swans. Swans are elegant birds and I see them as a great alternative to the pink flamingos that have been so popular over the past couple of years. Flamingos are large, lean birds and have a sophisticated appeal to them. Swans on the other hand are similar, but I feel that they have a more grown-up feel to them.

In this blog post, I want to share with you some swan pattern inspiration. A couple are painted and others are digitally stylised. I’m loving all the colour and composition variations!

Pretty summer outfit from ASOS

Summer time is nearly here and I’ve been searching for some daytime and evening outfits. I absolutely love lace, florals and embellishments and would really like a pretty summer outfit from ASOS, as I just love ASOS! I also favour other on-line stores and to name a few are TopShop, H&M and Urban Outfitters too, for example.

What I love the most about ASOS, is their wide selection of clothing for different body types and styles. I always order quite a few items at once, which they deliver for free (think you have to spend over a certain amount – £20?) and you can send back the ones that you don’t want for free too! I find this method really simple and an easy way to shop.

I’d like to share with you a pretty outfit, which will be perfect for a special daytime occasion, perhaps for a wedding, christening or birthday meal. What I love about this outfit are the soft colours of pink, coral and contrasting teal shades. Regarding the fabrics, I’ve combined lace (dress and heels) with a textured, cotton and beaded embellishment clutch. It’s so feminine!

I think delicate, antique gold jewellery and a shawl will look perfect when accessorising this outfit. What do you think?
