Alice McCALL – Spring Summer 2012-13 – ‘Babooshka’
A spectrum of colour washed the runway at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and the eerie voice of Kate Bush filled the crowd, as Alice McCALL sent down the catwalk a pack of beautiful futuristic gypsies to showcase her Spring Summer 2012/2013 collection ‘Babooshka’.
I loved the cute braids and rich colours. How amazing were the patterns on the dresses? Such amazing colour and detail! The show was stunning!

What is my style? I often get asked advice on What to Wear… To be honest I am a funny one! I remember watching an Oprah episode featuring ‘Sex and The City’ and they spoke about how there were such devout fans who were wearing T’shirts that identified them as characters from the show such as ‘I am a Carrie’. Well with regards to my own style I would possibly wear a shirt that says “I am a cross between a Carrie and Charlotte”…I love classic high end labels but also enjoy mixing with vintage and quirky designers!
I recently discovered Gary Pepper vintage…I love Nicole’s blog and vintage online shopping store…the styling is amazing! Mixing old with new always works wonders!! I know I will be regularly visiting the Gary Pepper vintage store…well the Carrie in me will be!!!!
This week I present a vintage dress that I bought last year from Ramona West Vintage! I always loved these photos and even though I recently resold the dress I wanted to show the photos again because I love how Vintage can look so cool! It may be due to the shape of the dress, combination of the prints and the shoes worn by the model but the whole look reminds me of the 2007 Balenciaga Spring collection.
It just goes to show that vintage can be timeless!! Do you have an amazing vintage piece that reminds you of a designer style/collection?…If so please share x
