OUR DAY OUT AT THE CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW…

The infamous Chelsea Flower Show is a splendid British event, and the ilovegorgeous team were lucky enough to celebrate it’s centenary show over the Bank Holiday weekend. The CFS proved why it has stood the test of time with its weird and wonderful statues, wild piles of blooms, and a regal history.

NSPCC

 The NSPCC’s spellbinding “Garden of Magical Childhood” took us back to the days of building rickety tree houses and playing hide and seek with our teddy bears. Designed by Adam Woolcott and Jon Smith, the garden holds a wonder of nostalgic features – vintage toys,  kaleidoscopic flowers and even a wishing pond. The show imitates a child’s imagination and supports the “What Will we Leave?” campaign which hopes to get us thinking about the precariousness of childhood and what we are leaving behind.

We were fascinated by the artistic and inventive displays, and and the show was a huge source of inspiration for our designers Lucy and Sophie. We have included plenty of pretty florals in our current collection from floaty fairy dresses to bright retro bikinis. There’s a print for every gorgeous girl to choose from whether it be our delicate ditzy, 50’s tulip or funky fluorescent print!

Here at ilovegorgeous we thought we would ask our budding blogger a few questions to discover more about what Lula loves…

When did you discover ilovegorgeous?
My older sisters used to wear it all the time, so I discovered it when I was five and have loved it ever since!
How do you pull your outfits together in the morning?
Well… whenever I’m wearing a dress, I will always team it with something to make it look more interesting and different. If I’m wearing a skirt or a top, I normally make sure there is one colour combo! I will always make my outfits look cool, and casual!
What are your favourite things to do in your spare time?
I absolutely love tennis, baking delicious cakes, and going shopping of course!
What’s your favourite trend at the moment?
I really like the vintage trend and I have also seen a lot of people wearing metallic colours (mostly gold), which I think is so cool and crazy!
What do you like to read?
I love reading Vogue and Miss Vogue, and I often look at other people’s style and getting influenced by their ideas. I look at a lot of fashion blogs on Tumblr, especially Prada’s.
What’s your favourite ilovegorgeous piece?
This is such I difficult question – I love them all! The clothes are so beautiful and detailed and the colours are always amazing.
How would you describe yourself?
I would probably describe myself as funky, crazy and LOUD!
Where’s your favourite hangout at the moment?
I love hanging out and shopping in Notting Hill and Portobello – there’s such a fab range of shops! I also love all the funky vintage shops on Brick Lane.
