As I contemplated what to post today, it came to me as a stark realization that I've never posted my CF work on.
So here's my latest post and in my opinion one of my fave looks:

Haven’t you heard? Apparently, it’s cool to be British again. Recently peaked by the Royal Wedding, the Beatles on iTunes and the imminent Olympics 2012, England is enjoying a buzz. It is a bit reminiscent of the days of "Cool Britannia" — a term used to describe the fashionable culture of contemporary London.

Bowler hat? Check. Union Jack-inspired T-Shirt? Check. As Mischa Barton and Britain’s favourite rock princess Kate Moss demonstrate, T-shirts with an iconic edge can be powerful expressions of identity and achieving that effortless cool look. Even more so if it has red, white and blue on it. Like the T-shirt this Fashionista is wearing? Then head to the always reliable H&M.

You can look like a true Fashionista without having to buy a replica of Kate Middleton’s engagement ring. This fashionable student bought hers from the quintessentially British fashion mecca Topshop.

Sunny spells and clear skies, this week’s Fashionista celebrates the unseasonably good British weather by wearing a pair of polka-dot sunnies she bought from ALDO to evoke some quirky British spirit to her collegiate outfit.

Her cropped red-and-white shirt is from Feeling Vintage — a vintage store in Athens while her blue jeans (she cut herself) are from Bershka. You might recognize her boots too — worn by Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfield, Pixie Lott, and Halle Berry — AllSaints Damisi boots are a celebrity favourite!

Hint: To avoid an over the top patriotic look, inject some Anglomania with a key item that you are sure to wear time and time again. Accessories, like a brooch or a necklace, are a sure fire way to go without having to make a huge wardrobe change.
