I discovered the brand 'Sweetlime' whilst searching for jewellery on Pinterest. Sweetlime encapsulates everything I love about this style of jewellery. It is tribal, ethnic and bohemian, what's not to love? Inspired by global travel, Sweetlime accessories and bags are made from; beads, threads, feathers, Afgani pendants, old coins, pom poms and more. I also love the vibrant colours with pops of neon. This is statement jewellery with personality! The friendship bracelets would also make a great gift for a friend. Price Range: £28 - £575
The bags and jewellery would look great worn at festivals such as Glastonbury or Coachella, or worn whilst you are on holiday or travelling. Personally I would wear this jewellery everyday, a great way to liven up a work outfit!
Sweetlime accessories have been highly rated by; Glamour Magazine, Telegraph Fashion, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, to name but a few. Here is a moodboard from Sweetlime, it features so much imagery that I love and have used in the past as inspiration for my own design work.

Earlier in the year I was shopping in Anthropologie on the King's Road, when I spotted the most delightful blue leather bag. Anthopologie is full of the lots of gorgeous things to buy, but out of everything it was the electric blue bag that really caught my eye. The Brand - Lost Property of London. I later discovered that the style in question is called the 'Elwin Miniature'. It really is the perfect bag to take to work or out shopping. It is a stylish and classic shape, but buy it in blue or mustard yellow and you add an instant sophisticated pop of colour to your outfit. I also love that it has both a handle and a detachable cross body strap, something I always look for when buying bags. Price £215.
About The Brand - All bags are designed and made in the UK using traditional techniques and using salvaged fabrics and vegetable tanned leather...which makes me love the brand even more! Lost Property of London bags have featured in publications such as Vogue and Marie Claire. The brand creates a number of different styles including; Handbags, Totes, Rucksacks, Travel Bags and iPhone cases. The travel bags in particular would be great for both men and women.
Belmont St.Ives £185/ Arlington £242/ Royal Huxley £215
How I would style an outfit to wear with this bag.
Lost Property of London bags are sold at Anthopologie in both the London and the USA, Fortnum and Masons, and in a number of other stores worldwide and online. Visit the brands website for further details. You can also follow Lost Property of London on twitter @LostPropertyLDN
So 2 months after Chanel and Christian Dior presented their Resort 15 collections, the final shows have now taken place. I had been waiting patiently to see the Miu Miu collection and the show finally took place yesterday. I loved the nod to 60's fashion - the little suede dresses, the crochet vests. I also liked the basic block colour paisley prints...sure to be a well copied style on the high street! Antonio Berardi showcased a collection with structured skirts and dresses in a harmonious silver/turquoise/pink colour palette, which I also liked.
My Favourite 4 collections were:
Oscar De La Renta
Which have been your favourite Resort 15 collections?
