A flamboyance of flamingos

This post is inspired by a recent article on Apartment therapy, a homage of sorts to acknowledge the passing of Donald Featherstone, the creator of the pink plastic flamingo. Apartment therapy featured DIY flamingo inspired projects. My favourite being the taxidermy flamingo, the flamingo sprinkler and the flamingo table piece, fabulous!

So I thought I would feature some of my favourite flamingo buys at the moment. I love the flamngo print hepburn dress from Lady V London, it’s just so pretty! The print is also available in a wide variety of styles.

Purses, Purses, Purses

I love novelty purses! I love the element of fun and whimsy they add to an outfit! I’ve found some fabulous new bags of late that I just had to share!

One of my current favourites are the play purses. These are reminiscent of the little coin purses I had as a child, but in a grown up size. Available in a variety of colours, they are super cute:

CYAN_largeI am also equally smitten with the milk carton purse from pin up girl clothing, I love that it is the “best milk ever”! Equally as cute from PUG is the carousel pony bag!

I personally love Charlotte Olympia’s bags, admittedly they are a little out of my price range, but I love to dream a little sometimes! The Pumpkin pouch is so magical, with a little sprinkling of Swarovski crystals, it’s magical!
