I can hear your hearbeat!

OMG! These were the first three words uttered from my mouth when I first cast my eyes on Karla Spetic's new Autumn/Winter '12 collection. The Heart collection has literally taken my breath away. I could feel my heartbeat racing with excitement. I cannot remember the last time that this has happened to me. There are plenty of fantastic creative elements and my mind boggles just thinking about where to begin.

I was taken back to my childhood days of reading comics, only this particular comic would have been snatched away from me before I could turn the first page!! I would have uttered the word, "Mummy, look! They're kissing!"  This is where the collection begins to heat up. 

This sheer skirt is the perfect match, paired with the digital print of a passionate kiss! Very chic & sensual. I love the use of the yellow brogues which add a cute, casual flair to this ensemble.

My heartbeat continued to race as I came across this sheer shirt and skirt! I was thinking the other day that I would really like to delve more into the nude, natural palette and here, I can see this working for me so well. However, I would be wearing a slip underneath! I can see this layered over a black slip. I know a garment is going to be an essential item when I have a list in my head of its many styling options!

So these first couple of pieces from the Heart collection sure got my heart racing, but I wondered whether things would plateau from here on. As I continued to click my mouse to scroll along the look book, I had the feeling I would now be in trouble. I had a serious case of heart palpitations!!!

This skirt rang my bells and whistles because it's so unique, cute and whimsical, all at the same time. I am a fan of skirt which falls above the waist, as I find them to be the most comfortable. This A-line shape suits so many shapes, it's unbelievably practical!

Here's the same garment, but with the sheer skirt draped over the top! It's almost like a movie screen with the curtains drawn over it! The scarlett red brings some added drama to this look.

Below are two dresses from the same collection. The pop of colour is just perfect to brighten up any cold Autumn/Winter's day!

Karla Spetic has also used animal prints in this collection. Here are my two favourite looks to bring out the animal in you!

This dress is my all-time favourite! The baby blue contrasts beautifully with the black. A hint of leopard print is all that's needed! It actually flatters the waistline as it draws it inwards. You know I'm a big fan of the A-line!! So this dress ticks all the right boxes for me.

What are your favourite looks from this collection that send your heart racing?

Have a great weekend lovely readers! Be sure to check out Karla Spetic's online store here. The fabulous new Heart collection is coming soon!

Yours in style,
