There was a time when I couldn't wait for the new Toast catalogue. How I would drool as if eating warm buttery toast. Now, I still enjoy the arrival but my toast needs jam added to get that hit. I always have loved the brand of Toast because it is quirky, has a bygone era feel and the quality was/is top notch for high end high street. The rational of letting your imagination dictate how you wear your clothes not your clothes wearing you is why I love Mr Jacobs and why I used to really love Toast. I fell out of love with them when the marketing and PR peeps couldn't even be bothered to tell me the opening day of the new shop in Bath - after I'd got them a piece in the local magazine. Manners costs nothing so for quite a few months I didn't use them for me or clients. I calculated it cost them about £3k in sales.
I'm over the slight now but it has impacted on my love affair - I see the imperfections! The styling and photography has lost its edge and the collection is less the original owners and more the spawning of French Connection - still I give you my toast of Toast....
Well I would if I could do this!! Honestly my adding images skills are rubbish, Mrs Fashion and StyleBubble have nothing to fear from me!
Kimono top - will look great with jeans and make one feel all grown up!
Aegean shirt dress - if you want to embrace hippy chick then add ticking scarf and heidi sandals, keep fingers crossed for invite to Barbados
Go to http://www.toast.co.uk/ to view complete new collection and when I've figured out image stuff I'll do this properly - any tips!!??
