This isn’t me, it’s Keira Knightley. Although the likeness is uncanny. (That is a lie. See if you can spot the next one). She is wearing a dress I have been lusting after ever since I saw it, designed by the rather clever Orla Kiely. Who learnt everything she knows from me. (There it is.)
Prints and patterns and colours that make my heart zing – Orla Kiely has been getting it right in Poppyville since forever, so I am tickled pink to be attending a tea party (Squeal! A TEA PARTY!) at Coggles this Sunday 13th May. There will be cake, (CAKE!) tea, (obviously) Prosecco and nostalgic 1940’s gramophone hits tinkling away…
Orla Kiely’s Spring Summer 2012 collection has been designed to capture the romance and allure of those old Summer holibubs snaps from the 40s and 50s, inspired by the trail blazing American designer Claire McCardell (you can thank her for ballet slippers, trouser pockets and pleats!) and stunning vintage Vogue pattern books.
With 20% off her SS12 collection and an exciting exclusive pressie if you buy anything, I really can’t see why you’d want to be anywhere else.
Nope – I just thought about it again and I can’t think of anything better.
Make sure you click to reserve your place here though – there’ll only be so much cake to go around and you won’t want to miss it.
See you there, ladybugs.
