{fashion inspiration | lookbook : collette dinnigan spring summer 2012}



. . . felicity sent over the link to collette dinnigan‘s stunning spring summer collection this morning, and am now considering forgoing regular office attire altogether, and spending the rest of spring into summer in french chantilly lace with scalloped hand-beaded hemlines and shimmery sequinned silk . . .

Felicity remembers Miss Roséline’s very first post a number of years ago. Her first introduction to the world of blogging was when she stumbled across a post on Bestey Johnson's apartment on This Is Glamorous. Ever since then, she has watched TIG blossom and grow into the much loved blog you now are now reading. Roséline’s eye for glamorous elegant finds, makes her smile, especially when she places them in her multi-image colour themed posts. She has also very much enjoyed the addition of Laily‘s Favorite Five posts & Sarah‘s weekly travel finds. She encourages you to settle in with a box of Ladurée macarons & your favorite tea and wander through the treasure trove of images hidden in the archives of this lovely blog. You’ll be so glad you did.

    I loved it!!!! Sooo chic!
    I just posted looks from Beverly Hills, and tips for gifts for Mother’s day under 100!!!take a look:

  • Una collezione molto bella!!!

  • These are all beauties! Love the yellow one in particular!

  • i love how over the top girly these dresses are and that they were styled where the simple (yet sexy!) pump let the dresses shine. wish i could say i could incorporate these into my daily life as a mom of 3, but i’m more a jeans tank top kinda girl. i can dream though…

  • Love, love, LOVE Colette Dinnigan! I had a few of her lace dresses years ago, when I worked on a magazine, but since then she’s been off my radar (I now live in the countryside and live in Hunter wellies!) These images have reminded me of how much and why I love her designs. SO pretty – think I’m going to have to go through my old wardrobe and see if I can revisit her (IF they fit now – lol!)

  • They are gorgeous :) These dresses remind me of the place I used to work as a designer! Very cool! Love them :) But since I move to NZ it’s out of my reach- they feel great on the skin as well!

  • Stunning. These dresses are not only gorgeous but inspiring. They are like works of art. Thank you for sharing this! I need to shop now.

  • Wow, I could seriously wear every single one of these outfits! They are just perfection. x

  • Aaahhh, Collette! An amazing Aussie designer. Her creations are always so soft & feminine, full of lace & gorgeous scalloped edges….

  • I love that she has featured Australian model, Emma Balfour, too.
