It's hard at this time of year. It's still cold and rainy and the post-Christmas sales are getting down to the dregs, but all the spring/summer collections are coming into the shops and making us all coo for warmer weather so we can get our next fashion fix. One of the great things about this time of year though is that some of the spring/summer items from last year are still in the sales, so you can pick up some bargains before you actually need your summer clothes. While it's too pricey to be on my sales shopping list (even at less than half the original price), I'm completely in lust with this gorgeous silk halter dress by Luisa Beccaria. The delicate pleating, ruffles and pretty butterfly print makes me long for a balmy evening at a fancy garden party. Oh, and the £724.50 I'd need handy to buy it.
