[ fabulously british ]

IT WAS A gorgeous day in Dublin on Saturday so we decided to take a walk around and browse in some shops. I stumbled upon Jack Wills, a great shop located on tiny Harry Street, definitely off the beaten path. It can best be described as Britain's version of American Eagle or The Gap.

Housed in an old red-brick Victorian building on three levels, Jack Wills is chock full of great casual fashions for men and women, as well as accessories and bedding & linens. I love the way they merchandise their products, using old dressers, vintage suitcases, even a claw-foot tub!













I checked out their website to see more of their pieces...




And so after all that browsing, what did I buy? A fantastic union jack floor cushion! I know that union jacks have been a big trend lately and I haven't tired of them yet. This cushion just adds that punch to a space and looks great right now with the red sofas in this furnished apartment!

Oh that floor cushion is fantastic. I love their sign "outiftters to the gentry", that and "the welburn blazer" just sound so divine.

How fun! What a great shop! Love the undies...too cute, and their displays are great!

Sounds like a fun day!

You're right that the clothes have a similar feel to American Eagle Outfitters but the store itself looks as though it's not part of a chain but a really cool boutique. The decorating is amazing with the tub and the chandelier. I also love the wall of photos. You don't see cool decor like that in most NA stores.

I don't think Union Jack fashion will ever fade. It's always been around in one way or another. I love this shop. I'm so glad you found it. They sell some gorgeous clothes.

I didn't realise they did homewares too. I'm off for a peek at their website!
