... you heard it here first that turquoise was going to be MASSIVE for 2010. But it's official, turquoise has been named as the colour of the year by Pantone

Inspired by water & sky, turquoise is known for it's healing qualities and is a colour of compassion and leans towards ideas of escapism, relaxation & perfect for weddings in tropical shores. It appeals to both men & women making it the perfect hue for weddings this year.

Try pairing turquoise with neutrals & browns. Liven up other blues & greens & for a striking look pair turquoise with yellow. If you didn't see our post a while back here it is.

This packaging by Amy Amos is most definitely a feast for the eyes. What a delightful project to be a part of - isn't she talented. Amy was contacted to design 5* upmarket packaging for a pitch for a McDonald's pop up restaurant during fashion week. Along with the fabulous photographer, Marija Ivkovic, I think the results are outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of McDonald's / fast food but with packaging like this you so would wouldn't you...?

It's official: I am the proud owner of a pair of Vivienne Westwood Melissa Jelly Shoes! Simon bought me a pair as my Valentine's treat in the blue & red and they are the sweetest thing I have ever owned.
He is so thoughtful & always gets the most thoughtful gifts.
The fit is amazing (definitely go for the smallest size that you are). I'm a 4's / 5's and these shoes are a 4's and fit like a dream. Even better they smell like bubblegum... too cute!
