Look Du Jour: Bringing back Barbie



What: Blouse: Topshop, Skirt: America Apparel, Shoes: Bertie, Bag: Oliver Bonas, Necklace: Anne Bowes Jewellery

As you may have noticed, I’ve recently re-discovered my love of all things pink. This season the girly girls favourite has been rescued from the realms of barbie style WAG-dom and reinstated on our style radar. It’s sudden chic-over has come courtesy of Jason Wu, DKNY and Prada who led the pink parade for SS12 with a kaleidescope of saccharine to super bright shades. Even the usually tomboyish Acne got in on the act with a delicious cupcake coloured finale. Now I know that no one likes to admit that their outfit choices are overly influenced by what crops up on the catwalk but it certainly provides inspiration. When I saw the first bubblegum number sashay down the runway I practically jumped for joy and immediately decided to try out a few of these luscious looks myself. After all, if it’s good enough for Miuccia…
