Designalike special: Everybody loves Luella

It's been a while since I've done a Designalike, so I thought I'd give you a treat and do a special designalike on the special summer appeal of Luella. Also, sorry guys but Outfit of the Week is on hold till Monday.

Luella must have really hit on something for their SS08 collection. Some ancient bit of our collective female consciousness must've gone: "I really, really want to dress like a geeky girl and wear ditsy florals, a cape and bat-shaped glasses", because nothing else can explain why the High Street's wife and it's mother are doing the Designalike shuffle all over this look for summer. And we are lapping up the frilly dresses, ditsy prints and kookie looks like babes to the teat.

Yes, Luella does it much better, her material is of the finest quality and designs exquisite and exclusive. But what to do if you are not a millionaire heir-head? Head for the high street.
