Grab some Cilla-inspired 1960’s style from Marks & Spencer

Mui Mui 2014 If there is one trend that I’m loving for this season it’s the 1960’s. Forget visions of full on retro throwbacks. This time around its had a modern and edgy update. As seen on the catwalks at Valentino, Gucci, Mui Mui and Louis Vuitton – it’s more about 1960’s shapes reinvented for 2014 with fresh, modern fabrics.

Festival Fever – and fashion finds for the little ones
