Styling Magazine ... Alexis Mabille caught my eye this season!

This month's post for the 'By Invitation Only' party.
(A gathering of gorgeous girls around the world all posting today on the same theme)

This month's topic was to pick a favourite (and a not-so-favourite)
design from this years 2013-14 fashion shows.

Well, I'm sorry girls, I just couldn't choose just one ... no ... not one.
nor can I show a design that I don't like. 

As an old fashion and beauty editor from the 90's, my 
no. 1 rule ... never show a bad design. (Sorry Marsha :)

but ...  I can choose one designer and show you his beautiful couture collection.

A l e x i s   M a b i l l e

 has definitely caught my eye this season!


Designs of romance and beauty -    hand painted flowers on the dresses and on the model's hair.
 Beautiful delicate details - ruffles, flowing fabrics, lace and bows.

You must all know by now that my heart belongs to fine details and of course the flower.
Bravo ... Alexis Mabille ... bravo!

Exquisite!  xx
