Spring Tales with Little Miss Junior

Last week Little Miss Junior ventured out of the office in her chic new Miss Grant paisley print dress to preview the spring/summer collections. A fitting location for her stylish new dress was Centre point’s swish private members club Paramount, which housed the Replay boys and girls collection. Little Miss J reported “Replay carried on last seasons love affair with Americana, the collection sporting baseball inspired tops, footy style tees and baseball caps”.

At her much-loved Bonpoint shop on Marylebone High street, Little Miss J tucked into Laduree macaroons whilst being shown around the spring/summer collection, taking to the bright net dresses and beautiful cotton scarves, ideal for her trip to Barbados later in the year.

At Hackett, Little Miss J browsed the boys’ offerings - some gorgeous paisley and floral scarves and nautical-themed soft tailored jackets were her favorites, perfect for Chuck her boyfriend.

When lunchtime came, Little Miss J changed into her floral tea dress from Caramel Baby and Child, hopped into a taxi to Covent Garden’s Piazza, where Joules were showcasing the new collection at a townhouse which was decorated in a fifties theme. Joules creative director was eager to hear Little Miss Junior’s verdict: “I love the chubby ginger cat modeling in your look book and the floral raincoat is adorable, do please send me one”.

Gap didn’t fail to disappoint and had hired a grand Georgian town house. Downstairs sat a large restaurant with a gourmet chef, Little Miss J adored the pumpkin and goats cheese tart, even asking for more! Then, tucked away at the top of the house, Little Miss J discovered Gap’s spring/summer children’s collection, all fashioned in a blue and white nautical theme, which has been a running trend in the shows. Little Miss J was inspired as she is planning a cruise to the Black Sea in her Easter break. One of her favorite events today was Little White Company and Little Miss Junior was excited about making her pre-orders. “I want the cashmere dress in grey, the cute beige dungarees and some of those stripe jersey tee’s. Its all very minimal yet girly, perfect for me”!
