Anglomaniac

The title of this post describes me to a T.

In fact, one of my favorite jogging tees is from the Anglomania exhibit at the Met, one of those rare times when it’s fashionable to wear a flag (a watercolor Union Jack, natch) on your shirt.

And, while in confession mode, let me reveal that I have a large orange silhouette of Queen Elizabeth on a pillow in my fireplace room (a funky Union Jack is on the other side of the pillow).

When I saw these booties by Alexander McQueen on the Manolo’s site, I was helpless but to poach them for my blog, with props, of course, because I think they are the epitome of cool.

I would emphatically not wear them with a skirt, though, as shown on the Net a Porter site, because the ankle is too wide (it’s got to be fitted!). But with a long and lean pair of jeans and a navy cashmere sweater, I’d have my go-to casual fall look.

Too bad they’re almost sold out. Size 38, anyone?!

What is it about the Union Jack that's so loveable? I used to have a knitted Union Jack tank top back in my teens I just adored...

Those are fantastic!

Mary-laure, I'd wear a knitted UJ tank top too. I can't see myself wearing a Canadian flag, although I do have a Roots Canada Olympic hoodie from a few Winter Olympics ago.

WendyB--Are you (size)38?! Go get them!

Songy--The OZ flag would be cool. Talk to Imelda!
