I spotted the floral pinafore dress on eBay, and from the back of the plaid pinafore (which I also found on eBay), I have a feeling that it is sort of worn back-to-front. A high-waisted skirt with braces has the same kind of effect. They both have quite a cutesy feel and I love those prints.

Dug out some not-quite-vintage Luella from the archives for you to compare and contrast.
Plaid, for me, has always had that schoolgirl vibe of the Luella collection but it's interesting to contrast this to the folky feel of this season's D&G collection. You know that I always love a bit of Luella and I still have old cuttings from this collection. I also really like the floaty D&G dresses with the added clash of the tartan tights. Looking at these collections has opened my eyes to the versatility in the way that plaid can be worn.

& we all love maryna.
Well I do anyway. Simply gorgeous. A Belarusian with amazing eyes and a beautiful smile. Love her hair - which is best with bangs, methinks. She just seems really warm and someone who would be really fun to be around. My model of the moment. Need I say more?

Poppy Valentine at asos.
My current obsession involves high-waisted floral skirts ala Swedish girls and Chloe Sevigny. I think the last 4 pieces that I've bought have been floral and 3 of them high-waisted skirts. I think I am truly obsessed and don't know what to do to cure my addiction.
One thing that's definitely not helping is Poppy Valentine at asos,
which I found out about through Catwalk Queen
. The label uses vintage fabrics, which I absolutely love the prints of. The colours of the top skirt together with the romantic print works beautifully, making it my favourite print. The colours are perfect for summer. I also really the shape of the skirts, with the pleating and the high-waist. There's a limited stock which makes the skirts even more tempting. I also like the floral dress, which reminds me a little of Chloe Sevigny. I again love the print.

This Fluo collection from Toy Watch
seem to be a big hit at the moment. One of these will definitely brighten up your summer. Well, your wrist at least. I really like the lime green but would like to see one in hot pink (I'm not really sure about that particular shade of pink above). I could definitely see one of these going well with my multi-coloured star bracelet. However, if you're worried about these appearing all over the place and therefore losing its appeal, the Storm
watch below is an alternative. It's less expensive, but still with the fluo brightness of the Toy Watches.
