NYFW - Marchesa SS'13

Keren Craid and Georgina Chapman delivered the Indian Summer I had been praying for with their stunning collection of beaded gowns with sari style layering.  Although the Marchesa designers used a vivid colour palette (fuchsia and garnet featured) it was the shimmering white gowns with their sparkling bodice detailing that had me entranced.

Credit Buy - Ducie Maxi Dress

And just when you thought it was safe to get back into your UGGS, along came the Indian Summer we had all been promised but daren’t possibly believe...

A fortnight ago in beautiful Tuscany I wore this cream Ducie Maxi dress – and now I want it in every colour under the sun.

Designer Ducie Keam-George founded her label in 2004 with her husband Dan and initially they sold their dresses from a stall in Portobello Market. Rapidly expanding through word of mouth, these gorgeous dresses are now available online in a selection of stunning colours and styles.

Dressed up or down, this cotton and silk dress with gold buttons is so versatile and hooooopefully, sunshine permitting, I’ll get to wear it again this weekend… Or have I just jinxed everything?!

I’d better keep those UGGS to hand just in case…

Available from Ducie in a range of lots of gorgeous colours...
