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. Well, not acual people walking around wearing their birthday suits ( although this was the sixties- it probably happened). First, the plunging neck lines became apparent and were everywhere in Paris Spring collections. This craze hit its peak…

Weekend Fashion Photo Update…

Bank Holiday Weekend… Bliss. BUT… Its made even better by a vintage fair, a walk in the Lakes, a new sketch pad and plenty of laziness! Photo updates provided!

The Swingin’ Sixties : PART 1

In a previous blog I covered one of my favourite fashion eras; the rockin 50’s, but then it is a tough one; as the sixties is just as fabulous, in its own way. But how did it differ to the 50s? Ok, the 1960s were reminiscent of the 50s and could be said to be…

3 Spring Trends: Are You In Or Out?

Its a sunday morning. Me, my laptop and coffee are in bed t watching terrible sunday morning television. So i thought id have a little write! A quick one today; because the sun is out, and my wardrobe has many delights for the sun 😉

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…

Style Sort Out!

    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…

The Rockin 50’s.

Ok, I understand I wasn’t even born. Neither were my parents. But my grandparents were, and I know who has the most interesting stories and anecdotes about fashion. The amount of times I walk into my nanas and I get ” I had some curtains like that” or ” that looks just like a skirt I had…

Fashion = Pain?

On Friday, I wore one of the most beautiful dresses that i’ve ever worn. Might I add for a bargain of £30. Even though it was stunning, it has physically scarred me and it took me a good half an hour to get in and out of it. When I was getting in it I…

My Fashion Icon.

Today I thought I would natter about one of my favourite women, who is a fashion dream, an influence and a great role model for all woman; or in fact anyone. Iris Apbfel. Not a lot of people I have asked, know of her. She was in a car advert I think… But many might…

FIRST ‘VLOG’

So, I thought id mix it up and provide an awkward video, featuring some spots and a double chin. But every now and again, probably once a month, I’m going to pick a couple of items from my wardrobe and ramble on about them. Hopefully I will add a couple of items to my wardrobe…
