After seeing a lovely bunch of bloggers being ‘Styled In Celia’ for the launch of the hotly anticipated Celia Birtwell collection with Uniqlo, I knew I wanted a piece of the floral print action on offer, so when I was kindly offered an item from the range to review, I couldn’t help but think someone up there was watching down on me! I opted for a beautiful dress that I saw over on Olivia’s blog as I just love the colour and ditsy print. It’s a dress that I would say is very ‘me’ – floral print, bright colours, loose fitting – and I couldn’t wait to wear it. I wore it to work today with a pair of tights and my favourite Primark boots for a smart/casual look at the office. I took these snaps this evening when I got home (hence the dodgy lighting) and decided to throw on my gorgeous new flower garland that I bought from Beauxoxo, as the colours go perfectly. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up as this look would be gorgeous with some chunky vintage-esque sandals and ankle socks!
The Celia Birtwell collection not only features more dresses like mine, but there are lots of lovely tops, trousers and accessories available too, all designed around Celia’s original prints from the 60s and 70s. There are some beautiful blouses, and I couldn’t help but place a cheeky little order for a lovely one in a striking royal blue colour online! I can’t wait to style it with some pale blue skinny jeans and tan accessories. I can’t see this being my last purchase from the collection either…
Also, if you’re a fan of the lady herself, you might want to check out the Celia book, titled ‘Celia Birtwell by Celia Birtwell with Dominic Lutyens (Published by Quadrille, RRP £30 Hardback)
