The Poetry launch i attended at the Cavendish store last night should have come with a warning tag – sheesh, they have such fabulous clothing, accessories and shoes in for summer – wow!! And the day before pay day – double warning tag! I mentioned in my last post on Poetry how they’ve taken a turn for the tropical and the inclusion of punchy coral shades, turquoise, emerald green and yellow really illustrates this trend. Expresso stylist Alexis Chaffe introduced us to the notion of toning things down or ramping it up with prints on prints or bold accessories while sharing that stripes are still big news for summer.
There are lots of exotic prints going down at Poetry but the pretty florals and pared down paisleys are also there – so there’s something for the bravehearted seasonal shopper but there’s also something for the person looking out for a reliable staple – and that’s why i think Poetry works so well – they recognise that women like you and i want to feel like we’re understanding the season’s trend but we’re not a walking ad for ‘the look’.
Did i get out of there without damaging my credit card?
Nah. but i did buy the prettiest coral coloured shoes you ever did see!
