stars and stripes

For the last few years the american flag has been associated with war, ridiculous bigoted protests and a certain beady eyed balding texan with a penchant for badly written speeches....

However, Americana and the American dream have swiftly recooperated (maybe due to that babe in the White House)- and the stars and stripes have become a whole new level of cool.

I am loving the American inspired prints and college-esque slogans. And am on a continuous hunt for them for my store Lola Vintage (will be back up and running soon!!!), and ofcourse myself. I am loving the topshop denim shorts (as shown below)- although, am currently working towards a bod like that..

Cover me in stars and stripes - lets be a little bit patriotic ;)(well patriotic from the other side of the world)


  1. Yay yay yay!! You will indeed see me there! Wow Zambesi?! jealous!! Is Karen Walker doing a colab show with Dept Store? I know, we pretty much have to work out 5 outfits eeek. Oooh and I tried Rosemount O Ruby the other night thanks to your recommendation! Its really refreshing & summery! Although Im not sure I could drink it over a long period of time as it is quite sweet :)

    Oh yea, dumb you missed out on media registration but looks like it doesnt matter in the end since you get to go to the best shows!

    How are your teeth?Or I should really say gums!! Do u have to do those salt-water rinses? so painful :-s


    P.S - I should hook you up with my mob number! Let me know wht yr email is :)

  2. I am loving your blog - it is inspiring in so many ways!!! Although I am not American, I can appreciate your sense of nationalism!! I am all for Obama and I am sure he is going to do great things for your country!!!
