You might have already heard of one of my favourite high-street brands, 18 and East by now if you read my blog. I’ve mentioned them a number of times (here, here, here, here) and actually buy from them pretty often. If you need a dress, on a budget, the chances are 18 and East will have something perfect. Not only are the designs always brilliantly quirky and effortlessly cool, but the guys behind the brand are totally amazing too. It’s the TopShop alternative, if you don’t want to turn up to a party wearing the same as someone else, choose 18 and East.
I’ve been a keen follower for the past two seasons and Spring Summer 2012 is no exception – anyone who can make pigeons look cute are winning for me. Prints are what 18andEast do best, they are always so different and simply gorgeous. This season brings the china plate print and pigeon print, along with block colour beauties that will never go out of fashion.
I honestly can’t wait to get my legs out this summer wearing one of these show-stopping frocks. Perfect for any occasion, formal or festival, you needn’t shop anywhere else.
