A fashion feeling

Sorry I've been a bit quiet on the post front lately, I've been drowning in uni work! I say that sat surrounded by fashion history books but we can look over that!

Although you may think you need some serious guts to wear such outrageous prints I think that anybody packing a print is going to be a hit this season! And looking at these designs, there's definitely something about Mary. xoxo
