FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS

I'm hot, a little bit clammy and filled with a urge, to paint my face in a plethora of bright colours - no I don't have the dreaded Clown-itis, I have caught Olympic fever. With less than 70 days to go until the kick-off in July 27th and the Olympic torch already on UK shores, I have to say I'm getting excited for the two weeks sport and patriotism, and it seems like the world of fashion is also getting in the spirit.

Flag prints are everywhere at the minute, and what better way is there to support you country, than looking fabulous in their colours. Leave the body paint to the topless, beer-gut sporting fellow there is in every crowd and instead show your allegiance with some style.

  1. I'm refusing to buy anything with a Union Jack on it. I could be tempted by the Iron Fist shoes though.

    1. Yeah the Iron Fist shoes are pretty special - I kinda like the American flag prints, but I think I would feel too much like Wonder Woman!

But those Aussie flag tights? All over them! They are great! The Mr keeps wanting to move to Oz, and I swear if the day ever comes, I will be wearing those tights! x

  8. I keep seeing lots of union jack prints too :) I've been unsure about them and probably wouldn't wear them but the tube skirt from new look is really nice and wearable!
