I ADORE vintage clothing. Have done since my mid teens when I first discovered the delights of wearing something that no one else owned and the joy of wearing a little bit of clothing history. Over the years I’ve bought and worn an array of vintage pieces from beaded dresses to sequin tops, seventies metallic disco heels to a silk neck scarf and still nothing gives me greater clothing delight
IN just six days time, the biggest day of the year is here. Oh, the excitement! The giddiness! The expectations! I love Christmas and one of the things I adore most about it, is that it gives us the perfect opportunity to dress as festive as we desire. Personally, I am someone who likes to twinkle almost as much as a finely decked Christmas tree (!) so for me on
THE larger the bump gets, the more creative I’m having to become with my wardrobe. So I thought I’d start sharing a weekly style post for ‘dressing the bump’ or should that be ‘dressing the HUGE bump’ now I’m in my third trimester.

OK so the weather may not exactly be playing ball right now, but we are now well and truly in spring! Which when it comes to our homes, means one thing only, it’s time for a good ol’ ‘spring clean’ and a sort out. I don’t know about you but I always think there’s something rather lovely and motivating about having a good tidy up. Getting organised. Throwing junk out.
AFTER a fabulous week away living ‘La Dolce Vita’, I’m back in blighty and just about getting back to reality! How the devil are you all?! It feels a little silly writing this post today, as I sit huddled by the fire, with my woolies on (!), but seeing as we all need some sunshine, I thought I’d share a very ‘summery’ style post. (Think of it as my little dedication to
WHEN it comes to style, there are a few things I don’t think I’ll ever tire off. Skinny jeans, high heels and sequins are up there. As are animal prints and handbags too. I adore animal prints. At Uni I was known for my leopard print trousers (probably because I wore them to death!) and this love affair with all animal fabrics is one which has continued way into my thirties.
