Do you own any dresses that are just so perfect for you that you can wear them again and again and never get bored? Well I certainly do, and would jubilee’ve it, this is one of those dresses! This remarkably jolly, vintage inspired River Island number features teeny soldiers, blue horses and marching bands all having a right royal knees up and I just love it! Jubilicious!

Even though the dress is pretty jazzy, it’s still very versatile. On this occasion the sun was shining and I was feeling adventurous, so I decided to throw on as many colours as I could and head out for some larks, ending with a glorious sunset (the perfect ready made filter!). The red cardigan from Just Blue* works wonders for this quirky pattern by bringing out the bunting and the union jacks, as do the white Matalan tights. Even though this was a casual outfit, I couldn’t resist bringing a little razzle-dazzle with my silver sandals from Topshop and my absolute favourite Boden* bag. You can call me Queen V…

The models sashayed their way down one side of the room and then back up the other, giving everyone ample opportunity to see the pieces. As you would expect from a high end store like Harvey Nichols, the presentation was beautiful and we did a lot of pointing and cooing. We were also very impressed to see Jade from Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model on the runway because that, my friend, is our level right there. It must be said that the models were all fabulous and injected a nice bit of personality into proceedings. Continue reading She and Home: Harvey Nichols SS14
