Going For Gold - Grecian Style

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Only two days to go until the opening ceremony of London 2012 and we can't wait to see what's in store! We're poised for a summer of sport, spectacles and of course sunshine! So we've been scouring the virtual rails of IndependentBoutique.com and taking inspiration from where it all began - the first Olympic Games. We present to you a Grecian inspired, draped in gold outfit, that will make you a front running style goddess.

Olympics-Grecian

Standing in first place on the style podium is this beautiful Swan Star Pink Maxi Jersey Dress from SLC-SLC.  So light, this dress floats ethereally and flatters all the right areas. Add a pair of Goddess Shield Earrings from Kate Dumbleton Jewellery and a stunning Gold Vermeil Lophorina Bracelet from Cara Tonkin to really turn up the Grecian vibe.  Finish off the outfit with simple studded sandals from Melabelle and an eye catching golden and bronze leather clutch bag from Nook and Willow.

Keep checking our blog for more Olympic themed outfit ideas - tomorrow we're talking London street style!

Well, what a cruel summer we've been having recently! If we're not getting soaked by the rain we're getting blown over into puddles, sun, sun where have you gone! We've decided it's time to take charge, if the sun's not going to shine this summer we still want to make sure everyone's looking the bee's knees. Here's a few of our products to keep you warm and dry and looking fabulous!

Rain

First of all, the perfect cover up is essential when the rain clouds are hovering in the sky, we found some lovely ones from both Lagom and Caro London. Lagom's beautiful Tulip Trench Coat is a brillant investment piece that will see you through autumn and winter, a coat for all seasons. Caro London's Summer Throwover is perfect for throwing into the boot of the car for when you're out and about and popping on whenever you feel a chill.
