Well not literally... Neutral!
The trends for this spring/summer are fantastic! I mean,  I cant wait for summer time to fully embrace the colours and lighter fabrics.

I'm always constantly searching my wardrobe, wondering whether I can imitate these trends without spending money! Lets face it, times are getting harder with the financial increases in this and that... it never stops!.

Harper's Bazaar has done a graphically appealing breakdown of this SS11 trends, I mean its just brilliant so I've put it on here to show you. I have only put up my selected favourite trends, celebrities bang on trend and myself imitating the current styles with ensemble's already in my wardrobe (brought afew years ago lol).

I'm sure you could find key pieces that emphasize the current trends.

Sharn Does Gucci

        This season Gucci is all about tropical vibrant colours, high gloss satin and sleek silhouette's. I'm loving the  gold tassels belt and the traffic light red lips  and nails that Gucci has sported on there runway.

I can’t help but obsess over Gucci's 70s Glam look, which is taking over the fashion world! I mean, it’s  everywhere! From front cover magazines to celeb's making appearances in it and the high street re-creating the look at an affordable value!

Take a look at my favourite selection of celebs flaunting this SS11 craze

Katy Perry

 Camila Belle

Kim Kardashian

Sham wears high Street Gucci inspired ensemble from River Island

...and shoes!!!


 As much as I love the Gucci SS11 collection, I really cannot justify breaking my bank account for it, I felt this was the time to get grips on my needle and thread and create my own Gucci dress for less with ensembles already in my wardrobe...well my sister Sham's old Rare dress! Hee Hee!

 I did actually use a sewing machine after taking the top half off the dress. 

This black cut out top is from Asos, which I have made some alterations to and now I have attach the top to the skirt making this a dress.

Check out my Gucci Inspired dress!
