When my friends at The Coveteur asked if I wanted to play dress up in the latest Ann Taylor SS14 collection with them, I jumped at the chance.   The collection is incredibly modern and very wearable   had a lot of fun putting together my edit of favourite pieces.   I love all the monochromatic tones and soft peaches with graphic statement outerwear pieces, although the nicest surprise of the day was how incredibly chic and comfy their shoes are – you can literally pound the pavement all day or dance the night away in them, whatever your potion is! What really struck me is that even though I was pregnant in these shots, the fabrics are so beautiful, it hides any bumps you may have, making these pieces a must have for spring!

The cherry on top…  seeing our edit in the windows of Ann Taylor’s 5th Ave store in NYC – bring on SPRING!

One of the best things about my job as Contributing Style Editor at Vogue Australia, is getting to peek into the closets of some of fashion’s favourite It Girls; and Stylebop’s Fashion Director, Leila Yavari, was no exception.

We met VERY early one morning during Paris Fashion Week at the hotel Crillion, and I stepped into what could be only described as fashion heaven.  Leila has incredible taste and I had to desperately refrain from trying things on, as we went through pieces from her delicious PFW wardrobe, whilst selecting what looks to shoot.

We eventually peeled ourselves away and set off into the romantic but hectic streets of Paris and shot in the Tuileries gardens, on the steps of Le Petit Palais and finally along the Pont Alexandre III – where Leila literally stopped traffic in THAT megawatt hot Rocksanda Ilincic bejeweled dress.

I hope you love, Candice xx
