Pure Whites & Neutrals

June 17 2012
“Shirley loves her whites and neutrals!”
I can’t exactly pin-point where my obsession with this colour palette stemmed from, but for as long as I can remember I’ve always loved it. The sheer clean and fresh nature of it is what keeps me coming back to it. I love how chic a garment in the white or neutral colour family looks on.
These are my favourite pieces, and they will be making regular appearances on the blog!

    Just perfect garments, work perfect with any bright coloured skirts/jeans etc and look fabulous and sleek.

    I love wearing white tops! There’s just something so classy about it. I can’t say the same for white bottoms (I have the tendency of sitting in places where it is prone to dirtying up a nice pair of white trousers).

    so chic and classy. You’ve got such classy collection. i love your style so much. I cant get enough. I am inspired to haul some whites this summer. Btw where do you purchase your clothes hanger, the colour is soo cool an doesn’t distract from the clothes’ beauty. You always get it right shirley!! 🙂 x
