Only The Best From Beckham

Well Victoria Beckham did not disappoint with her fifth collection at New York Fashion Week.

Choosing to present in New York rather than London (as it is closer to home now she lives in America!), Mrs B showcased the collection of 26 dresses to a small gathering in a mansion off fifth avenue, consisting of a few select editors, retailers and stylists.

The Spring Summer 2011 collection has been very well received by fashion critics, perhaps due to the fact she banned the use of size 0 models, making the dresses more representative of the "normal" women's form.

The dresses speak for themselves, a combination of spring like neutrals and bursts of summer brights. The accessories were minimal, not to take away from the dress itself, although there was the introduction of bags. The looks were finished off with Brian Atwood shoes, Victoria's personal favourite.

A Pick-Me-Up Purchase

I'm partial to a well made blouse and had a much loved one from Miss Selfridge that ticked all the boxes. Nude, three quarter length sleeves, silk and baggy. Hung perfectly, but disaster struck at T in the Park when my perfect blouse got ruined. The bin it was. I have since been looking for a replacement and today came across the new range from Yuki. All the blouses are one size and there are a few different styles to choose from, but i opted for the "Beige Preppy Unbalanced Shirt" £59.00
