Currently Craving: The Union Jack

You know, I love the Union Jack. It is, in my opinion, pretty much the coolest flag ever. And what better place to wear it loud and proud than in London?! We start off with the Charlotte Olympia Jubilee Pandora (1), appropriately british and celebratory. Alexander McQueen has quite a few Union Jack bags, like the De Manta Clutch (2),  Classic Britannia (5) and Crystal Britannia (6), for those who prefer something a little sparklier. The Keep Calm and Carry On Union Jack iPhone Case (3) couldn’t be cooler, and, fun fact, did you know the Keep Calm and Carry on Poster was never really popular or widely used in the War? Yet it is so popular today.
For a more subtle flag print, the Vivienne Westwood Union Jack Printed Gown (4) is perfect. We jump right down to 7 (see 5 and 6 above) and into puddles in our Hunter Vintage Union Jack Wellies (7). In terms of actually, wear-every-day clothes, the options include Religion Union Jack Skinny jeans (8) (which are only really wearable if you’re the super daring sort) and Markus Lupfer’s Union Jack Bag Sequined Sweater (9), which is just daring enough yet totally cool.

Dressing For: a Summer Wedding

Spring and Summer and definitely prime Wedding season, and why not? The weather is (usually) amazing (depending on where you are), and everyone is tanner and more beautiful, therefore happier to go and celebrate. I only have one wedding to go to this summer, so I guess that makes me either unpopular, or without enough friends of the marrying age. I’m excited for the impending wedding, though, as it will feature cowboy boots (the groom is from Texas). And, we have known the bride and groom for a long time, so it’s extra super exciting. I have my monogramed hanky all ready to go.
I still don’t know what I’m wearing, and the wedding is like, today, so here are three little outfits I, or you, could potentially wear. While each would work for a specific theme, they also could work for any theme, though you might want to switch out the white denim jacket, unless it is a southern, cowboy-boot-like-affair. Most ensembles feature either pastels, brights, or floral. How on trend you and I’ll be! Though if you really want to make a statement I suggest the Dolce and Gabanna Tomato Dress and Prada Flame or Lipstick Heels. Or sneakers, to cause an even bigger uproar.
