That is it. I now think the summer is finally over. Thus I thought the time could not be more perfect to say goodbye to my favourite trend of the last season – pastels – with one last summer outfit, one going totally over the top with all the soft ice cream colours that I have been wearing past couple of months. And here it is, on one of the last warm days I put together super pastel explosion and took a photo for you to have a look. I am wearing baby pink cropped oversized tank from American Apparel, skinny mint Leigh trousers from Topshop and Converse trainers I designed myself using their online tool and blogged about the experience earlier this year here. Accessories-wise I am wearing pink and green Allumette necklace by Allumer (1), Dior ring (2), ASOS perspex bag I also mentioned a few months ago here (3), Beta silk scarf that is printed with symmetrical geometrical print in beautiful pastel colours (4, check out their entire collection here), Timex pastel watch as mentioned here (5) and ASOS gummy bracelets once again in combination of pastel colours (6).
The best thing, even though I am saying goodbye to this palette for the vivid colours of Autumn/Winter 2012, I am happy to store those garments for the next spring when thanks to a number of shows recently seen in New York and London, the palette is going to come back. So see you soon pastels!

Bursting into music scene when her home made video for a melancholic song Video Games went viral on Youtube, Lana Del Rey has just as quickly gained popularity in the fashion world as in the music world. And while her songs and questionable authenticity is being debated all over the internet by music critics, there is nothing less than a complete acceptance of this lady in fashion industry. The song bird has already performed at Chateau Marmont in LA at Mulberry party, was flown to Beijing to do the same for Dior, signed a modelling contract and (drum roll please) appeared on the cover of British Vogue shot by one and only Mario Testino.
On the pictures and in her videos Lana looks every inch of the star she is about to become. And while her off duty look still need a few tweaks (Lana please drop those bomber jackets, they are only cute if you borrowed them from your boyfriend when you were too optimistic about the weather outside and not for daily wear) one thing she definitely got right is her hair style: she epitomises those soft retro waves seen all over spring/summer 2012 fashion runways!
And since I am simply in love with Lana’s Born to Die video, here are the items inspired by two of her outfits in the video. I will definitely be channeling half-hipster half-flower child look very soon (as soon as this Global Freeze currently positioned over London disappears, that is).
