Skimming through my wardrobe, I'm left with a big fat feeling of dissatisfaction at the moment. How did I end up with a few over-done, immensely over-worn pieces bought many moons ago, aka back when my mum bought most of my clothes, and a smattering of quickly regretted and meaningless garments from the following couple of… Continue reading investing in the ‘forever’.
We had a few rough weeks of heavy-belting rain here - a vision, a reminder, a warning of what is to come. Every year I successfully forget the woes of winter when the sun shines frequently and I can feel that slight burn. I'm a sun-seeker; I'm a cold-blooded animal requiring that hit of Vitamin… Continue reading how to deal with winter: get a cool sweatshirt.
My self-prescribed sartorial challenge has taught me many things already; things that new and things that are building on the snippets I already noticed in my life. Known fact: there's a lot of black and white in that wardrobe ( actually, sadly, it's not even a wardrobe - more like a mass of drawers and… Continue reading much ado about bottom-halves.
One of the only things I love about winter is the coats ( and, consequently, the layering required ). I have some in-built attraction to them, where it is impossible to love too many similar-looking grey coats. I would happily seat them all in my wardrobe and rotate their wear on a weekly basis. Trying… Continue reading anatomy of :: the winter coat.
I have a growing list of half-started blog posts that are begging my attention and some love. By the end of July my goal is to have all these completed for your lovely eyes, and my over-active brain. Some peace to allow room for more bits and pieces that are rattling around in there. For… Continue reading all your winter needs.
You would expect me to love clothes shopping, thrive off the buzz of the purchase and new items collected. Reality is quite the opposite, in the most frustrating ways. My love of fashion regularly does not extend to the store. Something needs to be done about those fluorescent fitting room lights and tight spaces for… Continue reading thought process of clothes shopping.
Today was a bit of nothing, other than finally starting Making a Murderer, and seeing Ben and Leslie get engaged. Happy happy times. The men have been a bit neglected on here the last few months - not quite fair when there have been some great shows and flawless tailoring about. Here we have some… Continue reading manspiration :: dior homme ss16.
I’m trying to distract myself from the fact that one of my go-to, always trustworthy, forever motivating websites has now been converted. Style.com is dead, but will live on in my heart. My links and saved bookmarks have disappeared in cyberspace, housed in a completely different exterior. All that untapped material. Even worse is that… Continue reading tommy ton lives on.
The sun decided to give us another teaser for the day, but now the storms have come to haunt again. It’s real winter weather - like snuggle up with Netflix all day, let’s never leave the house kind. So, from a better place and hotter days. Keep your eyes on the prize everyone. (Images from… Continue reading weeping winter.
Right now I am dreaming of summer and freedom and denim cut offs. Smoothies on the beach and sandy legs. I’m putting to the back of my mind the frightful, cheese-induced, dream I had the other night - Tim decided he could befriend a great white shark, which then followed us (out of water, somehow… Continue reading wherever you want to be for a day.
