When people say floral, whats the first thing that comes to mind?
There is not one piece of clothing in my wardrobe in this 'floral' print. (black floral harem pants 2 summers ago. but thats it, I swear) Not because I don't like floral prints (well yes), but one they never look good on me,
2) they are just a little too pretty pretty,
3) think about it, they have been around forever - dark floral jeans in winter/ light floral shorts in summer.. dark long sleeves floral dress in winter/ light strapless floral dress in summer.. I am just not crazy about it.
This summer. it's all about finding the perfect FLOR.
I) Forget small repeated pattern - go big and bold
II) Look for floral with more contrasted colours - pastel coloured background with bright coloured floral - bright coloured floral with pale coloured background
III) Wear actual flower print maybe? some people genuinely think all swirly/ flower-lookalike patterns are called 'floral'
IV) Think OUTSIDE the box- Don't stick with the typical chiffon dresses or denim shorts. go for massive flower necklaces/ head pieces/ earrings/ nails/ hair/ face/ get floral in places one should never get floral.

I have given up trying to re-design this site for the 8749th time. Daddy ma is going to help look for a web designer over the summer, this temporary layout will have to do for now.
Had my first skype meeting today with a business consultant in Hong Kong for a potential MA's new business, fingers crossed everything will go smoothly as planned, stay tuned! and today has officially been 3 months since this site has started, thank you thank you thank you for the 6,549 views over the past 3 months!
Lots of Love
