This week is going to be fun. Not that I will be giving too much away, but this weeks articles will have a bit of a british flair to them. If you haven’t guessed already, I am a brit myself. Though I am now also american too. (Oh, I am so confused!).
Anyhow, today, I thought it would be fun to explore the fashions of that misty isle called Britain. What makes a brit so fashionable? Well were going to find out. Even american celebrities have left their native land to come to this small island in the Atlantic. To the likes of Madonna, and Gwyneth Paltrow who have made this majestic land their new address.
Gwyneth Paltrow – now a London native- looked quite smashing at the London opening of ‘Iron Man’.
You go girl! Got perfect legs? Well I have to tell you the brit’s love a short skirt. Hence the mini from the sixties?! Looks like some of that short charm rubbed off on Gywneth here. But why not! If you’ve got it flaunt it!
Here is a few great mini’s from british line Top Shop.
You can get another very similar look from Victoria’s Secret. Try this mini skirt in stretch cotton.

Or this pleated mini number also by Victoria’s Secret.

Stuffy pin striped shirts, plaid pants and jackets. Hounds tooth coats? All sounds very british to me. Add some of these essentials to your wardrope.
Vivienne Westwood Mangano pencil skirt
Now you can’t get more classic british designing than Vivienne Westwood. Westwood’s Red Label is signature Westwood at every level. This season has beautiful draped skirts, cool wrap-over shirts, and multicolored print dresses.
Here are just a few of my faves from this season!
