Clothing Collaborations

It’s amazing how influential clothing collaborations are. We’ve (well I haven’t but my daughter has) all queued for the latest H&M / designer partnering, and who didn’t swoop down on the TopShop/Kate Moss collection a few years back? Personally I’m fortunate to be able to buy the real thing and I don’t often succumb to…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits this week (19th May 2017)

I’m still wearing Christopher Kane. It turns out I had much more of his clothing than I’d originally anticipated  – I am nearing the end though – I’ve got about 10 more outfits left to complete my challenge. It’s been an interesting experience, not least because I’ve had to dig out clothes from my wardrobe…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits this week (12th May 2017)

Finally it looks like spring has arrived. I know that Britain had a heat-wave before Easter but I was in Myanmar having a heat wave of my own and missed it. I subsequently returned home to arctic temperatures with hail and snow and spent the first two weeks back in the UK in black and…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits this week (6th May 2017)

Yup, I’m still wearing Christopher Kane. I wanted to prove that if you buy quality clothes they never go out of fashion and I hope that I have done just that. For the past six weeks I’ve been wearing a different Christopher Kane outfit (from my wardrobe) every single day (barring my holiday in Myanmar)…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (28th April 2017)

I’m just back from 18 days in Myanmar and having worn kaftans, shorts and bikinis for the entire trip I’m not exactly ecstatic to be back in winter woollies – not that I’m not happy to return to my Christopher Kane challenge – I am. If you’ve not followed my blog/Instagram feed, I decided back…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (8th April 2017)

This was supposed to be my final week of wearing Christopher Kane clothes for 30 consecutive days. I honestly didn’t realise I owned so many beautiful pieces from his collections over the past 10 years. I have however realised two things: 1.I have very definitely underestimated the amount that I own and can easily do…

My Favourite #ootd #outfits This Week (1st April 2017)

This was my fourth week of wearing only Christopher Kane all week. I think I was a bit too brave last week with the weather. Being the first week of Spring I actually wanted to dress in clothes that depicted spring, however I was freezing all week and had to layer up with tights and…

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…
