Hot on the heels of the Crayola nail polish I blogged about recently (not forgetting the amazing Ryan Gosling colouring in book) comes grown-up fashion that’s been inspired by childhood.
First up, we have the invasion of the owls. Didn’t you get the memo? Butterflies and swallows are so last season (*whispers* I’ll still be rocking my butterfly and swallow prints despite what those in-the-know say). Our nocturnal feathered friends were big in the 70s (my mum used to make fab macramé wall hangings) and they’ve been popping up all over kids’ clothes and décor for a while now. But now they’ve flown onto our clothes too. What a hoot! (Sorry)
Owl jumper, £10, George At Asda
Limited Edition Owl print tee, £25, Marks and Spencer
Owl print skater dress, £40, ASOS
Next we have cartoon print. Cheryl Cole stepped out wearing this ASOS Batman print dress last week and there are loads of t-shirts inspired by comic books. I’m hanging out for a Beano dress – Minnie The Minx anyone?
Lazy Oaf Batman dress, £60, ASOS
Ombré Minnie tank top, £7, New Look
3.1 Phillip Lim Ka-Pow t-shirt, £160, My Wardrobe
Lastly, the fashion world is going dotty for polka dots, which for a long time have been limited to kids’ clothes (and of course Mr Tumble’s spotty bag) but even had a whole spread dedicated to them in this week’s Grazia magazine. So they must be super on-trend.
Blue Polka Dot Blazer, £40, River Island
Louise Gray at Topshop Polka Dot Sequin Jacket, £165, Topshop
Cream Spotty Bag, £19.50, Dorothy Perkins
Loving your picks-that spotty handbag is totes cool!
Thanks! Yes the bag is fab, but I’m very tempted to buy the Louise Gray jacket…
I also will be wearing my beautiful butterfly print dresses again this season (I’ll just call it retro chic)! But so loving the dotty Dotty P’s handbag. I have an opening in my life for a spotty handbag, off to have a look on-line!
They have them in-stock on the website. It would be such a lovely way to lift a plan outfit, wouldn’t it? (And LOVING retro-chic!)
