SSFW'12 parte tre - Ciao Italia!

By rights I should already be onto recording my thoughts about Paris Fashion Week - I am incredibly behind with these posts! But I can't just let the wonders of Milan pass me by...
Alberta Ferreti x2, Bottega Veneta, D&G
Dolce and Gabbana x2, Emilio Pucci, Emporio Armani
Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Jil Sander
Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace, Versus
Trends to point out: flamboyant Mediterranean colours, high necklines, sharp tailoring, sandals, pastel colours (again!), bloomers still being pushed at Dolce and Gabbana, nature referenced in prints and patterns, continued allusions to sportwear, a possible increase in mini-lengths - but maybe just because it's summer?, exploration with textures, very simple hair and makeup. Let the clothes speak for themselves - they are rather fabulous.

I'd like to say a massive big thankyou to Alexa at cashmereandcandy for giving me this award!
I have to share seven random things about myself, so here goes!

1) I lived in Greece when I was younger
2) I have painted one wall in my room pink, the rest are white
3) My great-grandad was an oyster-catcher
4) I am a very quick reader - if I want to, I can read a book in one day
5) I've been to Reading Festival twice and loved it each time
6) I had my first boyfriend in nursery school, he invited me to his pirate party 
7) I had my haircut yesterday morning! I'll put pictures up later

And I've chosen 

fang ting and ashley at

to give the award to next!
