Fantasy Wardrobe – My take on Pre-Fall’s obsession with shimmer and mustard

Hello world,

It’s a little depressing writing about anything pre-fall, considering it’s still July and I am desperately clinging onto every last summer day we can get before it becomes all cold and wintery again. But it must be done, as the shops are starting to bring in their pre-fall collections and in a month’s time we will all be starting to shop for autumn/winter.

Two things dominating the autumn/winter 2011 collections are glittery shimmer and the colour mustard, an updated take on the colour du jour last winter of camel. I think I prefer the mustard colour as it’s more vibrant, but it really isn’t for everyone.

Either way, I had a bit of fun and threw together a fantasy wardrobe incorporating both trends, so have a look what I came up with and let me know what you think.

Until then,




Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
