OH-SO BRITISH

4 September 2014

Queen of hearts tea sets for splendid afternoon garden parties. Tartan skirts and Lady Dior Bags for shopping adventures in Oxford Street. Royal manicures to paint the town red. Today at The Land of Lavish, I am delighted to be sharing my Lavish List of oh-so-British home and style buys inspired by the little mailboxes and vibrant red telephone booths that spot the streets of London.  

The Lavish Voyage to London

From glittering Alexander McQueen Union Jack clutches and Big Ben travel posters to iconic guardsman key rings and double-decker bus cards, my Lavish List is wonderfully British. Here are my top 13 British-themed buys that will have you wishing of running away to London.
