Summer Time Blues

With Easter behind us and the clocks now having moved forward an hour bringing us lighter evenings we can dare to hope that winter is finally over.  The summer vibe is certainly evident on the high street and on the catwalks.

Tiffany blue is the colour to be seen in this season.  Tiffany and Co established in 1837 as a stationery and fancy goods emporium, first used this blue colour on their catalogue in 1845; before its focus became jewellery in 1853.  Tiffany now owns the copyright, meaning that no one knows the exact shade.  Many designers have certainly been attempting to emulate it though including Oscar de la renta.tiffany box

If your finances like mine don’t stretch to designer, never fear as the high street has been keen to get in on the act.  Tiffany is seen as the epitome of luxury and as such often features on the silver screen.  I hope wearing the colour will induce the same luxe effect and as such couldn’t resist this dress from Boohoo.

If you prefer to wear the colour more subtly, why not invest in a nail polish; Chanel do a beautiful one. Perhaps you would prefer to use the colour on your eyes; pictured shade is Mac Aquadisiac or just a flash of the colour with a fifties style pair of heels from LK Bennett.

Now whilst on the subject of Tiffany’s they collaborated with Catherine Martin to supply the jewellery for The Great Gatsby film, which is released in May.  This Jazz age glamour collection allows us all to have a piece of the roaring twenties which I touched on in ‘memories of my Grandma’.  The collection mainly contains pearls black onyx and my favourite the sapphire.  I picture here a few of my favourites but visit their site to view the full collection.

So whether you have someone who lavishes jewellery on you or are less well off, we can all have a little something from Tiffany’s this season.

Happy shopping!

  1. What a pleasant surprise this was Krissy! I was a little confused at the beginning as there is a lot of blurb before your rendition commences? As always, a very well researched and written piece which captures the imagination.
