Rabbit Trend Forecast: Tapestry

I'm still on my grungey 90s kick - but wow, there's a lot of tapestry style prints about on the high street at the moment (influenced very directly by Dolce & Gabbana, methinks). I like the dark, moody take on pretty florals, and the fact they remind me of big carpet bags of the ilk carried by Mr Fogg of Eighty Days Around the World.

I could leave you with a literary extract from Eight Days Around the World and said carpet bag. Instead, I'll leave you with this:

  1. I love these kind of dresses!

    The second one from Asos is absolutely gorgeous. Looks shift style? The pattern looks very vintage-y! xo
