It seems like my resolve to go for a minimalist black themed approach for this season has gone right out of the window;
sure, it's still a main player but another trend has crept in...it started last winter with the purchase of a vintage kilt style skirt on ebay and has since evolved in to a full blown obsession.
Damn you tartan, damn you.
I'm still on the hunt for the perfect tartan dress- I have one for out of work but I wish for something smarter, too. On my search I seem to have found rather a few skirts that I now wish were mine. Sadly I'm not a billionaire so I'm going to share my pain here instead.
|Every time a Boden catalogue drops through my door or I find myself once again browsing their website I get a strong craving for their British Tweed Kilt|
|Ok, it's not a skirt but this Vivienne Westwood bag has found it's way on to my wish list too. And at £320 from Selfridges it will stay firmly there.|
|This Check Pencil skirt from Dorothy Perkins ticks all the right boxes for office wear. Except for the fact it's a pencil skirt and I don't *do* pencil skirts (ever tried running up stairs in an emergency in one?) but at £22 it's an utter bargain.|
|Sticking to the bargain theme, at £17.99 this Navy and Green New Look number is a real temptation. It's a shame they don't carry it in the tall range though. I'd rather pay a few extra pounds and not lose my dignity. I remember the days when the high street used to cut skirts and dresses to a decent length.|
The hunt for a smart dress continues.
Are you tickled by tartan?
