Really, the post alone with these glorious images could speak for itself but then again, this isn't a picture gallery so do allow me to blah a bit about your lovies. This time round, I have literally been inundated with lovies. Damn you people, distracting me at the office with your lovies. I love how all the lists sound incredibly enticing and in fact it's a little sad that when I'm reading them and editing them, I'm thinking 'Crap....that vintage dress/cute bag/designer find isn't actually mine.... it's someone else's!'. But I should have known that readers of Style Bubble would come up trumps with their fabulous finds, buys and treasures. I'm also pleased that lovies are coming from all over the globe too, not that the State-siders aren't good enough (though it does often baffle me a little why my ickle UK blog has such a big US-majority readership...). Get ready for some major colour onslaught here and please do click on the images to expand them into their rightful size because it's all in those details.
Andrea from Singapore has some deliciously juicy prints which I'm sure look a whole lot better in the abundance of sunshine they get over in S'pore than it does here. // Diana from So Fash'on (check out her self-styling outfits) from Romania has some really special unique vintage picks which makes me think I'm missing out on some gems from East Europe (an area I have yet to conquer shopping wise...)

Kylie from Canada has not one but two pairs of fantastic ankle boots that have really Victorian/cutey features I also love the homemade Cassette Playa-stylee shirt. Hey, if you can't come to Cassette Playa, why not make it come to you? // Connie sent a fabulous email detailing her lovies with extra descriptions that was very insightful. For example, her vintage silk dress was her mother's who used to wear it with a parasol and a straw hat and Connie also designed the Miles Davis shirt herself.

Lluvia hails from Spain but lives in London and her lovies are decidedly luxe. Quite possibly the most luxe lovies of all. Obviously there is that monetary advantage that is hard to deny. // Cecilia's lovies are quite varied but funnily feature a lot of F21. I haven't heard too many good things about the store but her picks look great to me. Somewhere for me to go cheap-hunting when I'm State-side this summer?

Tara aka Swan Diamond Rose contributed to the readers' lovies last time and again this time. Only they're a lot different. I love the transition in style but most of her I love how by and large most of her lovies are thrifted. Must make them even more coveted and more 'lovie-worthy' (I seriously must stop making up words...) // Catherine has another small selection of lovies. I'm instantly drawn to the Barcelona mod dress with the enticing girl illustration on it.
