I’m writing from across the pond over at Pretty Polly USA, New York, to wish you all a Happy 4th of July! (It's on Wednesday, but we're getting prepared already!)
Typically, I throw on a USA t-shirt and some jean shorts, but this year I am going to wow the crowd in some House of Holland Stars and Stripes tights! After seeing the Union Jack mania (seriously even in the States they're EVERYWHERE - we're so obsessed) I am ready to show my US patriotism! They're awesome right?
So no matter where in the world you are, these tights are for celebrating and wearing with pride! Even if you're not from the States they're an ultra-cool fashion statement.
What to wear them with
Experiment - wear yours with denim hotpants & white pumps (As the flag tights designer Henry Holland styled them) Or try a simple blue, red or white dress so the tights are the main feature of your outfit.
Stay tuned to Instagram and Twitter for images of the Independence Day celebrations. Happy 4th of July!!!
Here's where you can pick up your pair:

Here is my first outfit post for you all, I will hopefully be doing some more in the future, and since this is my first one, I thought I'd start with something special...
Everyone loves to take pride in their country don't they? It's something we all have in common, pride in who we are and where we come from! Being an Irish Gal myself, St. Patrick's day (or Paddy's day as we like to call it) is a huge cause of celebration for everyone in my country. Seeing the new House of Holland Flag tights collection, I thought it would be fun to play around with some other countries' emblems for a change!
The collection features some really cool Austrailian 'Aussie' flag tights, American 'Stars & Stripes' Flag tights, and of course the amazing British Union Jack 'Rule Britannia' tights. And what with the Queen currently being on her Diamond Jubilee tour and the London 2012 Olympics just around the corner, what better time for you to show some national pride, by wearing that Union Jack print, loud and proud!
Here's me in my Stars and Stripes print, I thought it would be cool to toughen them up with a beanie and a leather jacket, for a more edgy look. I just love how bright and fun they are, I really can't wait to try out the rest!
House of Holland for Pretty Polly Flag Tights will be available to buy from www.prettypolly.co.uk at the end of April. Can't wait!
Thats all for now folks, Until next time!
