Red, White and Blue


Happy Diamond Jubilee weekend everybody!

In preparation for the weekend celebrations throughout London we had a red, white and blue dress code on Friday and this is what I wore.  When my line manager found out beforehand that I owned a Union Jack print jacket I was given strict orders to wear it.  And what better to celebrate what's great about Great Britain than wearing it with a piece by one of the best British designers out there, Dame Vivienne Westwood.

That's about as far as my patriotic duty extends I'm afraid! You won't catch me freezing to death camping on the Thames in the wind and torrential rain we've been having since yesterday waiting for a glimpse of the Queen as she sails by on her royal barge.  In fact Mr V and I are taking advantage of the two bank holidays and are off to Spain today for some much needed sun.

Enjoy the long weekend!

This post is part of Visible Monday - head over to Not Dead Yet Style to see what everyone is wearing.

Union Jack Jacket: Topshop; Dress: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania; Shoes: Michael by Michael Kors; Bag; Prune

  3. Oh, my goodness. If they gave prizes at the office, your outfit would have surely won. I've watched some of the video of the goings on and the queen herself appears to be freezing.

  11. Excellent patriotic outfit! How cool is that, you actually have a union jack blazer. Enjoy sunny Spain! I just finished a project going through 400 years of Spanish art history (absolutely love the Spanish artists) as well as a bit on la corrida de toros (the matadors are impressive but I don't like to think of the bulls' pain.) Have a great holiday! -- J xxx

  17. You have a Vivienne Westwood jacket?! AND it's a Union Jack print? Be still my foolish heart! Man, I'd LOVE to have such a fabulous thing in my wardrobe. I loved the whole Jubilee thing, but like you, I wouldn't be standing in the pouring rain for hours. That's because I am officially a wimp.

    Hope you can come and have a look at my Jubilee outfits and commentary (such as it is)on my blog.

    Cheers,
