Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. A woman’s weak spot. As Chris Rock once said : “Women need food, water, and compliments That’s right. And an occasional pair of shoes.”  That’s certainly right, you funny man!

Frocks in the Films : My Top Picks

When I think back ( all the way back) I’m not too sure where my love of ‘vintage’ fashion came from, but if I think about when my passion truly started, it was through my studies – where I was constantly reading about, researching, studying and watching films. My life drastically changed the moment I stepped…

Are Young People ‘bothered’ about Fashion Anymore?

D&G, Chanel, YSL, Gucci,… Just to name a few, these brands are said to be the ones we lust after the most. But with the majority of youth in over their heads with student debt, ridiculous financial situations and the sad but true, daunting thought of the never ending saving for a mortgage, that we…

The Swingin’ Sixties Part 2

  1964 This year brought a shock wave of nudity; not just in the UK, but world-wide.

Clothes to fit you, or you to fit your clothes?

So, my Tuesday evening consisted of eating the largest bowl of pasta I think I have ever seen in my life. (I tend to eat a lot, then complain about it.) And it got me thinking about all the people surrounding me doing slimming world, weight watchers and generally running circles around themselves trying to shred a…

“Dress for job you want, not that job you have”

Today, I had a conversation with my manager at work, discussing whether he would hire an ‘unconventional’ looking person. The conversation went a little bit like so ; 1 “Would you hire a bigger person?” 2 ” It depends how big” 1 “Like really big, cant fit in that chair big” ( Imagine a big…

    Over the weekend, I did something astonishing and most frankly a scary task to undertake. The wardrobe clear out. First of all I would like to apologise; not just to whoever may be reading this, but mostly myself, for not writing for a couple of weeks. I have lacked motivation, and been caught…
