Autumn/Winter 2011: Taylor strapless review 0

For anyone who has read my photo blog of how I utilised the Freya Deco strapless, you’ll know that for a 28/30 backed girl finding a strapless can be like being between hell or high water. A hackneyed phrase has never been more apt than describing a strapless bra for me which is both comfortable, pretty, and a great fit really is as rare as hen’s teeth.

The Deco is a really practical wonderful bra and has become my go-to bra for any strapless outfit and I thought it couldn’t be rivalled but it has been beaten to the ground by the stunning Taylor strapless.

The subtle yet knockout detailing of the striped sheer fabric overlay, bronze felt stripe and ribbon and strip of lace is so sophisticated. It takes a practical item and injects a bit of sex appeal that the plain Deco version was lacking (not to worry poor Deco, you’ll always have your place in my heart and my wardrobe!).

Autumn/Winter 2011: Freya Naomi Review 0

So it’s safe to say that winter is here. Soon we’ll be turning our clocks back and our evenings will get darker and gloomier before our very eyes. One thing that has kept me cheerful through this dark time has been waiting for my next Freya pick-me-up to arrive and I have to say A/W 2011 looks set to be an absolute treat.

First up from the collection I was kindly sent a Freya Naomi to have a look at and I have to say it’s not my usual style. I’m very much more of a FLORALS upon FLORALS kind of girl with the odd splash of lace, however the Naomi’s quirky monochrome houndstooth was something that didn’t scream ‘BUY ME’ when I was salivating over the sumptuous ‘Coming Soon‘ part of Freya’s all-new website.

I am currently running a little book club over on my blog, and us Diva Readers are enjoying the classic novel The Best of Everything, by Rona Jaffe. ( do come and join in the fun!).

This novel is set and written in the 50′s, and precedes Sex and the City by 40 years, yet the themes are the same. Style, women in the workplace, fast paces New York, friendships, relationships. More
