There are many things I dream of on a daily basis, and most of them involve Britain in some way. When I’m hungry, I dream of British food like fish and chips or Victoria sponge; when I’m bored, I dream of the bustle of London streets or the enveloping tranquility of the English countryside. When I’m restless, I often dream of driving a Rolls-Royce or vintage Jaguar along winding country lanes; and this image was the inspiration for my latest Polyvore creation.Touring

History has such an allure for me, through its fashion, ideals, and traditions. In this Polyvore set, I created an outfit that would perfectly complement the style and exclusivity of a vintage motor like a Rolls-Royce; but that also contains practical elements that will stand up to the wind and chill one encounters on a spirited drive. Rich green is an enlivening companion to the demure black of the dress and Burberry sandals- and as it is a hue akin to British racing green, it is quite appropriate for a ride in an historic British automobile. Gold jewellery adds interest, while red nail polish and a mink fur jacket solidify the vintage feel of this look. Although they may only be dreams for now, I adore the class and historical appeal of this ensemble and the pursuit for which it was designed.
