Britain is Great..and other bad puns!

With the 'Royal Wedding' only a few of weeks away I decided to do a set on the best of British, I'm not a huge fan on union flag clothing and accessories but obviously I had to include it and I actually quite like the more subtle pieces in the bottom left hand corner, Accessorize seem to have a lot of themed products in at the moment and I liked this union jack weekend bag, I even came across a lovely compact mirror too so its worth having a a look at the Accessorize website.
Vivienne Westwood features a couple of times in the set, I picked items from her Anglomania collection naturally and this shows the cross-over between royalism and the punk movement with a gorgeous tartan-esq dress. There were loads I could have chosen to include but I thought this was very uniquely Vivienne Westwood!

Oh, I really like the cake stand and the Accessorize bag! I can see the bag's sold out on the website, and I'm glad it is or I might have been tempted to buy it! x

Accessorize should probably send you a free one for all your promotional work! :)
