Update: H&M's Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Line?

When I first read about this, I admit I was a little curious, then excited, then started questioning about it: "Why make a line based on Lisbeth Salander when most people wouldn't be wearing grunge/goth?" I'm among those millions of people who have bought a copy of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and read it.

She's my favourite character and probably everyone who has read the book would at least feel sympathy for her, if not admire her strength despite all those unfortunate events that happened to her. Now you can actually dress like her with H&M's collection based on her style. I wouldn't go all out with it but I do have my eye on their leather jackets. I've always wanted to get a leather jacket but I feared that it wouldn't suit me at all. I wouldn't dare go near the leather pants…

Feathers are are still there (with Melbourne Cup drifting in, there's no reason why you wouldn't see them) And now, there's flowers. I don't mean floral patterns on headbands or gold earrings in the shape of a flower but rather fake flowers chained up into one: the realistic look.

Floral garlands have popped up in Sportsgirl, from simple designs to more elaborate ones. More hair accessories from Diva. I can imagine those garlands being worn at a concert or a nice casual day out but even I hesitate to try this trend. Those garlands could even be used for a wedding, if the flowers were white. 


Although it hasn't hit stores, it can also be in the form of jewellery. In etsy, there are heaps of designs. 


So if you wish to try out this trend, I'd recommend you wear it with…
