Floral or plaid? ... Or both?

Gantelets tartan écossais bleu pétrole
Something is in the air... a spring feeling !!!  (at last... )
Have you noticed it ?
And something else as well ...

You see them everywhere... you like them, or not... and if not, you might change your mind when looking at the Lost dolls collection... Little flowers... And tartan patterns...
 Because on Malam pieces, floral prints are different, because of vintage, unique and quality prints.

And this changes everything, it's fashion but not sheep-like, trendy but not Miss Everyone. And this, we LOVE.
You think about English cottages, Laura and Vivienne, punk... yes, Malam style is also so British!
Personnally I wear both floral and plaid prints at the same time. But you can have a more decisive vision on this and totally refuse to mix the styles...

Spring outfits : a few ideas ...

Currently in full season transition, it's so difficult to choose our daily outfits... Boots and other high shoes are going back to the cupboard to sleep through the warmer months, after loyally helping our little feet.
Ambiance is now to some leg showing, heel clicking and skirt flowing... Spring is showing the tip of its nose, but it's hardly here for good...

Fashion addicts, mommies, cool people… be careful !!!
Let's do everything little by little : OK for platforms or T-bar sandals, but with socks (neon colored.. or not), thin or thick depending on your outfit (and of the temperature).


So, an idea: put on your Jude dress, so springy, without a top underneath, but with a Chameleon wrap, knee-high socks, platform sandans, and... the detail... a headband in your Raiponce hair ( or normal hair, this also works! ) This winter, you would not go out without your fingerless gauntlets, this summer, you won't leave without your headband






A variant would be to wear a swallowtail jersey cardigan over it, but if you're not up for that, wear your hooded cape... plaid-patterned or not... and if I am a little more into fashion, I'll choose a floral print....

I suppose it is quite useless to remind you that purchasing a MALAM cape with hood is a good investment, with a quick ROI, since you can wear it at least 6 months in the year (unless of course if you live in Brazil or other really hot countries ).. It's timeless so it cannot go out of fashion, and you can still legate it to the next generation (not exaggerating at all here.. ;))

And since we're keen on skirts at the moment... the best is just the high waisted Malam skirt, with its straps and a perfect fit (again, not exaggerating ... )


As a conclusion, let's be spring-minded, without risking pneumonia, this is called being a reasonable fashion-addict (like agriculture, really ?).
