Passion for Paisley

The one print that always gets me feeling "boho chic" is - Paisley, this year it also coincides with the 70's trend which makes it extra fabulous.
The paisley symbol originated in Persia and came to Britain in the 19th century when the paisley shawl was the ‘must-have’ accessory.  Designers including Balenciaga and Stella McCartney have  featured the print on their designs and the great thing is designers continue to reinvent the print year on year.

This New Look dress was just £6 yes you heard me right, I'm always hunting for the bargains! I styled it with a tan belt and H&M fringe bag plus Florence and Fred Gladiator sandals.
As there is so much print its easy to keep it simple by just adding accessories, but I do think every wardrobe needs at least one paisley piece.

I have recently bought this paisley collar top from Dorothy Perkins too for the weekend (£7.40) as I'm off to cycling festival Eroica Britannia so watch out for my vintage style outfit posts after the weekend.
Have a great week Liz xx
