It was pretty hard to ignore this colour as nearly every designer sent at least one model down the runway clad in a shade of pink. From a muted puce to bright magenta, pink is the way to go.
You can go head-to-toe in it (for the very confident, as seen at Salvatore Ferragamo) or as a bright accent (pink trousers at Emanuel Ungaro).

The model on the floor has a casual shirt on, with large white, black and beige checks. Combined with some very light grey jeans and not-so-white All Stars, this look is ideal for a relaxed stroll down the city streets. Don't forget your black Ray-Ban Wayfarers or Clubmans, and you're good to go!

Springtime is in town, unless you live in Australia or down in Africa and it's like autumn now (damn, I need to stop finding exceptions for everything I say!).
Anyway, back to the subject: it's spring and that means that most of the time it's not warm enough to just wear a tee or a shirt, but a light spring coat may be in order. That's where I come in.
Select, buy and enjoy!

As you can tell, I have a thing for brown leather belts, and I like this one by Diesel Black Gold ($230). It's called 'the Stopwatch' and with its eyecatching dangly chain, all the girls will be staring at your groin. I know, right, great belt!

So, obviously what I present to you now is a drink. Not just any drink, but the Vesper. Anyone who's seen the 2006 James Bond film 'Casino Royale' (if you haven't I suggest you get your ass to the nearest entertainment store and buy a copy!) knows this is the cocktail he conjures up for his beloved beauty Vesper Lynd.
When the weather's hot, there's nothing like an ice-cold cocktail and the Vesper is just the drink to quench your thirst.
First, put a martini glass in the freezer and slice a lemon peel in a twister shape. Then:
- Six parts Gordon's or Tanqueray gin
- Two parts vodka (preferably Stolichnaya Blue)
- One part of Kina Lillet (or Dry Vermouth)
Shake all the ingredients over ice in a shaker. Then pour into the chilled martini glass and add the lemon peel as garnishing. Now you have a refreshing and fancy cocktail!
Be sure not to have too many, though, one too many of these and you'll feel it in the morning!
(Don't drink and drive, y'all)
