Union Jack Colors + Peter Pan Collar= A Tribute to Great Britain


My fashionistas, So the London 2012 Olympic Games has come to an end and while I am writing this blog I’m watching the Closing Ceremony that is celebrating the amazing sporting feats of the athletes who have taken part in the Games with the ultimate aftershow party. I decided to sport a look featuring all the colours of Union Jack to show my support and felicitaion to team Great Britain for their outstanding performance at the Olympics 2012 held in homeground. Here is the look I donned today when I was out and about to explore the city I live in, the city I have started loving-London, on the occassion of the final day of the Olympics 2012.

I am wearing a peter pan collar blouse in red. Peter pan collar is kinda passé now but  I had been thinking of sporting them to show you all for quite some time. I love the high school look it gives. Yes, you can argue that you don’t go to school any more, so why wear something teenage-ish?! Yes, I still go to school;D Going to university and work give me the same feeling, you see;) So, my this weekend’s shopping basket included two blouses and one dress with peter pan collar. You will see the other two soon-ish. This red blouse with white peter pan collar is from the advance collection of Primark , I loved the tiny gold chain connected to collar on both sides, quite similar to what we have seen on the ramp for the Autumn-winter collection this year. My black mini skirt has a history.It was tailored in Delhi for one of the many part-time jobs I did when I was an Undergraduate student there, this was in  Auto expo-one of the largest car show held in Pragati Maiden, New Delhi in India. The skirt was made in cobalt blue along with a blazer in the same shade. I had dyed the skirt and the blazer into black after my job contract was over. It’s been 8/9 years now, it looks new and I still wear it:) My cobalt blue messenger bag is from Zara ‘s last year’s summer collection, they had it in green this year as well.My net opaque tights and black ballerina are  from Marks & Spencer. As i said, I wanted to sport all three colours of Union Jack, therefore I donned a pearl bracelet and a pearl top in the ear from Topshop to match my white peter pan collar and keep the white part of Union Jack flag prominent. I am wearing my semi-cats-eye vintage sunglasses that I picked up from NYC. And I never forget to wear a smile with every Look I try:)
