And it was all Yellow



 ......Well almost.

Here's some lovely lemony, neon yellows to satiate any citrus apetite.
I have tried buying and wearing as much of this colour as possible, but there's only so much yellow one can have in their wardrobe (is there?). A lot of people shy away from yellows but a neon yellow is actually very flattering on pretty much everyone.

You may have noticed that blogging has slowly declined on Good Morning Mr Magpie; I have recently taken on a new role as a personal stylist and have also been organizing fashion shows so time has been very limited. However, now the dust has settled there will be lots more time for blogging, clothes making and general Magpie shenanigans.....Watch this space and HAPPY SPRING XXX

MAGPIE FIND: DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT

Clover Canyon came to our attention last season with their eclectic ensembles and ability to put the unexpected together and more than pull it off. This season they have outdone themselves and we are so excited we could squeel. Clover Canyon is designed and made in California. This collection goes back to the designers Irish roots which is evident with the tartan, stained glass windows and the rolling green hills.

We've selected our favorites from New York fashion week but recommend you check out the whole collection on style.com. The Good Morning Mr Magpie edit of the whole week to follow. Watch this space X

INSPIRATION: The world is your oyster

Here's some stunning images picked from my favourite editorials on Oystermag recently. If you've not relied on it yet, it's an amazing source of inspiration and is brimming with creativity. It's such a good source if you want to find new designers, clothing brands, musicians or just to generally get excited about life. The mag is based in Australia so expect dollar signs and brands you've never heard of. There some seriously great things going down, down under.

Inspiration: London Design Festival 2013

Nest making is important to both Magpie and Human and since Good Morning Mr Magpie HQ has recently moved home and into a new studio we've become quite obsessed with home decor and anything generally decoration orientated. We've painted, sewn, glued and covered anything that orange wallpaper will stick to.
Pictures of the new GMMM studio to come (so excited!!!), until then these amazing images from the London Design Festival 2013 are so inspiring. The colours, textures and shapes are amazing and while making stuff yourself is to be encouraged we wouldn't say no to any of these.
