Holiday Packing Dilemmas

I’m going to Burma next week. I know I should call it by it’s real name (Myanmar) but whenever people ask me where I’m going on my holidays and I say Myanmar, they look at me totally clueless so I have to explain it’s Burma. I’ve always wanted to explore Myanmar. I love South East…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (25th March 2017)

This was my third week of wearing only Christopher Kane all week. Am I bored of wearing the same designer? Err, absolutely not. Some of these outfits go back seven years and unlike me they’ve not dated a bit. In fact, I think I’ll still be able to wear then in ten and twenty years…

I Hate Fast Fashion

I’m going to be controversial and just say it. I hate fast fashion. Not because I’m a snob, I’m not. But because cheap clothes mean cheap fabric, poor craftsmanship and result in ill fitting garments that don’t even last the season. I hate what the high street has become. I know from time to time…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (19th March 2017)

This was my second week of wearing only Christopher Kane all week. I’m actually quite surprised at how these outfits have stood the test of time as some are nearly a decade old. What I love about Christopher Kane is that you don’t need to accessorise, so each piece is very easy to wear –…

What I’d love for Mother’s Day

If you are a mother, Mother’s Day should be the one day a year that you get to be looked after, pampered and waited on hand and foot, although if you are a mother, you’ll know that this rarely happens, not in my household anyway. My daughter is now old enough to earn her own…

Bustling Bilbao

Spain has never really been on my radar as a holiday destination. Sure I’ve been to Barcelona (who hasn’t?) and Madrid too, plus (ahem) a few trips to Marbella in my youth. But Northern Spain, the Basque Country had never really entered my head until I read that Louise Bourgeois was exhibiting at the Guggenheim…

My Love of Lycra

I’ve got an obsession with Lycra. For anyone reading my blog regularly they’ll already know I’ve got an obsession with dresses. My love of Lycra is for the same reason, like dresses it’s easy (and comfortable) to wear. I spend a lot of time at the gym. I try to go at least five times…

Kaftans

Who doesn’t love a kaftan? When I eventually achieve my dream of emigrating to Sydney (Australia) I’m going to live in kaftans – even in winter – probably over jeans – but nevertheless that’s what I’m going to wear. It’s no surprise that Camilla Franks, the Australian woman behind the brand hails from Sydney (you…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (10th March 2017)

This week I decided to challenge myself to wear Christopher Kane (from my wardrobe) for 30 consecutive days in support of British Fashion. I actually only decided this on Wednesday (hence me deciding to wear McQ on Tuesday), so until 6th April 17 I’ll only be wearing Christopher Kane. My favourite outfits from this week,…

Piercings

Since when did piercings come back into fashion? Don’t get me wrong. I’m delighted, the reason being I pierced my right ear multiple times about twenty eight years ago (must have been going through the punk phase!), much to the distress of my father, who incidentally didn’t notice for about twenty weeks. Several years after…

Christopher Kane – Day 1 – 72

I reckon I must be one of the biggest ambassadors for British fashion. And I don’t just mean like people who get paid to promote brands. Or those that are given clothes to sashay around in. I mean by someone who actually invests in clothes that are British designed and wears them on a regular…
