Mary keeps me smiling, even when I'm down...


Ladies, I'm excited!! My favourite designer, Mary Katrantzou, has a Topshop collection coming out THIS Friday at 9am! I've been looking forward to this ever since it was announced last year and have followed every tiny little piece of information that has been floating around the world wide web! The 1st glimpse of this gorgeous collection came from Grazia with one photograph of the stunning satin bowl-skirted dress. At last the collection is here - so obviously I'm completely skint and won't be lucky enough to hang any of these in my wardrobe :( sob! My favourites are the satin dress and the carnation print t-shirt - You can view the collection here . Prices start at just £40 which is unbelievable when you consider the amount of work that must go into creating such intricate designs!

The first time I ever set eyes on Mary Katrantzou's work was her S/S '11 show in September 2010 and it was love at first sight! As Grazia puts it Mary is the 'Queen of Print' but it was her AMAZING lampshade skirts that made me fall head over heels. They're unique and stunning and I've been obsessed ever since. Mary seems to take her inspiration from everyday things around her - flowers, lampshades, rooms (sorry, this is not a room!) - who knew the ordinary could be so extraordinary! If you haven't seen any of Mary's pieces before, here's a few of my favourites...

Mary, if you ever happen to read this, please keep doing what you do best - I love it!
And to my readers - make sure you check out the Topshop collection and let me know which pieces, if any, you buy - the jealousy will be oozing from my pores!
