Hate Pastels? Perhaps Try Dressing Like A Pagan This Summer…

June 6, 2011

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before but i really do struggle with dressing for spring/summer. Just as it starts to get hot and I reprogramme my brain to shed the layers and swathes, it then begins to pour with rain again leaving me stood staring at my cupboard waiting for it to give me answers.

That’s why I quite like this mini Pagan trend that’s been around for a while and I hope doesn’t run away too soon. Head-to-toe black in summer and a smattering of religious iconography? Yes please.

Crown – optional. Gold stars on feet? Compulsory

by now, it would seem that having some kind of cat is imperative to the trend…

    This is so brilliant, it’s almost painful. I have to keep looking, maybe forever.
