Tartan Moschino skirt AW2013

Tartan, squares, plaids and checks are Rebel’s favourite trend of AW2013 from Celine to Moschino!  I have also fallen for the graphic look. Rather than styling it grungy and edgy, I like my tartans to look playful and whimsical.  Think preppy style, paired with a white blouses, Peter Pan collar and playful details like bows and empire-line shaped dresses.

My favourite shade of tartan is green as it’s classic but not as noticeable as red.

Zooey Deschannel is one lucky girl because she gets to wear Saint Laurent’s red tartan dress with white peter pan collar, black bow and empire waist. I’ve been dreaming of buying this dress but my purse reminds me I can’t !

Easter in London has been unseasonably cold and chilly. Rain, sleet, snow, sunshine and dark clouds, all within one hour seems to be a normal weather pattern this spring. So I gave in and decided to wear my spring dresses with a layer of long sleeved thermos underneath (aren’t we all sick of our winter wardrobe?)

Vichy and gingham checked prints are a Romantique wardrobe staple so I’m loving this season’s graphic square print trend as seen at Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. Just like breton stripes, checks always look fresh and youthful.

Red or Blue?

Red or Blue? Dress from Max & Co 2013

I had a hard time deciding whether to take the blue dress or the red one.  After a lot of time pondering, trying it on again and again and an exasperated mum and shop assistant, I went for the blue dress! What do you think?
