You and Uncle Sam

This ensemble has echos of the 40's - the era of wartime romances and women's liberation. A cherry-red tulip-style skirt is paired with a black military jacket. The black-and-red theme continues with statement making spectator pumps and a cherry Bakelite necklace. (Never heard of Bakelite? Amazing stuff! Read about it here.)

Queen of the Jungle

This burnt sienna cashmere sweater is paired with a basic black denim pencil skirt. The outfit goes to the jungle wearing these shoes - burnt sienna with leopard print accent. A necklace with leopard print and turquoise beads both ties the outfit together and adds an extra pop of colour.

Somewhere It's Spring

This amazing chartreuse-turquoise-yellow flowered jacket makes a bold statement all on its own. Dress it up with a turquoise blouse and flared white skirt, or take it casual with a denim trouser and a timeless white v-neck T (both from Banana Republic). Take your pick of shoes - either a yellow flat with a turquoise swirl design, or a white flat with a peek of turquoise at the toe.
