Friday Shopping Special – Monsoon and Accessorize

This Friday I’m bringing a little sunshine into the mix with the fabulous heritage collection from Monsoon. With the store celebrating its 40th birthday (in the year my husband does the same), Monsoon has decided to delve into their illustrious archives to bring us a little bit of seventies boho, global traveller style chic. This result is a gorgeous range of cotton and cheesecloth style separates and dresses that hark back to those hazy days of summer summed up so beautifully through the misty lens of ‘The Virgin Suicides’ (one of those movies that just charm and hypnotise in equal measures) and Kate Winslet’s wardrobe in Hideous Kinky, seventies maxi dresses with quilted detail – totally boho, totally lush.

So, if we finally get a summer this year, this is just what you will need in your wardrobe.

I can’t finish this post without giving a shout out to Accessorize, and their totally beautiful new season clutch bags, jewellery and accessories. Accessorize have always been a place I visit each season when I need a statement necklace, some Beyonce style chandelier earrrings, or a cute pair of flat shoes. It always delivers, and this season is no different. Check out my picks and see if you don’t agree.
