Celia Birtwell for Express



Looks from the Celia Birtwell for Express Collection: Mystic Daisy Print Pussycat Blouse, $79.50; Little Rock Print Victoria Blouse, $79.50; Mystic Daisy and Mini Posh Dot Prints Volume Sleeve Dress, $128.00

Textile designer Celia Birtwell has re-imagined her signature prints for a limited edition collection at Express. During London's '70s boho scene, Birtwell's designs graced the pages of Vogue and the forms of Twiggy, Bianca Jagger and the Beatles. In 2006, the designer had a hugely successful collaboration with UK high street chain Topshop.

Birtwell's prints are definitely fab, but dear sweet Express, your prices are still too high. You'll have to do more to get me to bypass H&M next time I'm at the mall and shop within your walls. Perhaps when these looks go on sale, I'll come a-knockin'.

I LOVE and want all of the blouses, but at $80 each, that'd kill my bank account!! :-( Maybe I can settle on one or two...I guess!

I really like the first blouse and the dress, but yeah, sorry Express, unless you're going to give me a Fast Cash coupon for $25 off $50 or $50 off $100 or something, I'm not biting until this goes to clearance.
