Friday Frock O’clock

I couldn’t help but go for something out-and-out British today with an iconic British Designer and label, using a twist on British symbolism. Of course I’m talking about none other than Vivienne Westwood and her Gold Label Long Ball Union Jack-print silk-georgette gown, for the princely sum of £2,300 from Net-a-Porter

Sadly I don’t really have the occasion for it, (nor the well lined purse,) but this is a week for fantasy and pageantry, and this is a dress made for dressing up. Oddly, I’m not usually a fan of Westwoods signature corseted style, but the back of this frock is stunning and the shoulder line seemed suitably regal to turn my head this week…

What will you be wearing this weekend readers?


PS. I’ve been sent a ton of discount codes (mainly for shoes) this week, so thought I would add them in here – Happy Shopping! (Act fast if there’s something you want… lots of them end today or this weekend.)

A Stylish Jubilee…

I’m going to be honest here and say that the Jubilee fever has somewhat passed me by, partly being on holiday and partly because I’m going to be in Scotland for the Jubilee holiday at a family wedding. That’s not to say that I’m a nay-sayer or anti-royalist, I quite enjoy the royal family and would have liked to see the festivities and celebrate, as it is, I’ll be in the most anti-royalist part of the country I think!

What I have noticed a distinct asbence of however, is tasteful souvenirs and commemorative items, which is why there has been a distinct lack of coverage aimed at the jubilee on the blog. I have been pleasantly suprised however by a few of my favourite interiors stores producing select pieces with a nod to the jubilee and thought they were worth a round up. I’m particularly loving the crown adorned items, subtly celebrating the occasion but with much more longevity and a touch of whimsy.

Amongst my favourites are the corgi and crown motifs Thornback and Peel have produced, looking just hand-drawn enough to be unique, and just stylish enough to be a finishing touch.

Need a shot of Regal style in your home this year? You’d never know these stylish finds were celebrating the Jubilee rather than being Rule-Brittania-Cool…

Did I ever think I would dress up in red, white and blue themed items whilst coming over all patriotic. I dare say I would in these beauties…

So, tell me readers, what are you doing for the bank holiday weekend? I’m looking forward to hearing your celebration plans and if any of these pieces take your fancy!
