What defines pretty?

Q.What defines pretty?

A.'Prettiness is innocence improved. It sends two contradictory messages:'look closer' and don't touch'. True innocence has no make-up and doesn't wear a brand new frock;the pretty one is a girl who's becoming ambitious.

I Love Rika

Rika is a women's wear and accessories collection designed by Scandinavian Ulrika Lundglen. In 2005 the Rika brand was born and it already has a strong following within the fashion world with the likes, of Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Alexa Chung, Kirsten Dunst and Chloe Sevigny beening fans. The collection comprises of untreated handcrafted leather bags with the use of her signature symbol the star. For the women's wear line two of my favourite pieces are the floaty star print top and the star edged cashmere cardigans. Below are some images of the collection and you can see the spring summer collection being stocked in the UK at The shop at Bluebird and this year.
