Nothing makes me happy quite like an extravagant pattern that tells a story. Also, tea and cakes. They make me happy in equal measure. When I discovered this amazing wedgewood-porcelain print bomber jacket (at a certain discount outlet that shall remain nameless) I felt that all my print-tastic Christmases had come at once.
The terrific thing about an unusual print garment is that you can pair it with a little black dress or classic pair of palazzo pants to re-invigorate your wardrobe. Me – i’m not into little black dresses or plain anything, really – and I love the mash of color that print-on-print gives. Here, I’ve paired my porcelain jacket with a Venezia patterned shirtdress from Leona Edmiston and navy blue Vivienne Westwood/Melissa flats.
This strolling codger made it into my accessories shoot by proxy. Lucky bugger.
