I’m sad that the Olympics are drawing to a close. I’ve been enjoying the panoramic shots of London town and feeling a surge of pride for the amazing organisation of the event and for Team GB’s successes.
It’s perhaps not surprising therefore that I’ve returned to one of my favourite UK designers Emma Louise London for this post. This printed tee is part of Emma’s spring summer collection 2012, which you may have seen before on the blog. The famous quote from Charles Dicken’s Oliver Twist is probably also quite symbolic of going for what you want, Blog Reader, which makes me like this top even more.
Emma chose this quote as 2012 marks the bicentenary of Dicken’s birth (7th February 2012 to be precise). His work was really quite amazing, transcending time, language and culture. This is a fun tunic, paired best with skinny denim and a lot of colour to make the outfit stand out, I think.
Speaking of fun, time to get out in New York City and have me some. Tonight I’m celebrating the birthday of my blogger friend Anne in the West Village. She may be returning to France soon where I can’t wait to visit her. In the words of Dickens: “The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.” See you in Paris, mon petit poulet!
Wearing: Skinny legging jean from GAP; Heels, Dorothy Perkins; Sunglasses (in hand) GUESS. Tunic, Emma Louise London. Bracelet (just seen) Reiss (closest match here). Bodysuit (just seen) Between The Sheets.
*Um, clearly not a serious shot, Blog Reader.
