Styling Basics

When I first started blogging, this metallic pleated leather skirt was one of the first looks I posted click here to read. A lot has changed since that day, but one thing I have learnt is the endless possibilities that one piece of clothing can offer.   I had a afternoon date day planned with the gorgeous, Luna of swaggaismything.com and Keyma of styleweekender.com the dreaded curse of a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear almost settled in. Couple of outrageous and down right riddic options later, it was time to go

For Victoria who was a bit bored of reading all the “floral” spring inspired blog posts. The seventies was when fashion became expressive. Think fringe pieces, tie and dye shirts and clogs. It was also the birth of the wedgies, one- piece swimsuits and jersey wrap dress. Hot pants, culottes, maxi evening gowns and even his/hers outfits were all the rage.

Dreaming in Blue

Dreams definitely can become reality. One lazy summer night I was having a glass of wine and hanging out with my friend Alex, for the first time, he opened up to me and told me his story.

30 facts about me

So I was tagged to do the 30 random facts about me by my gorgeous friend Shenny Kings. Shenny is a fellow fashion enthusiast, blogger and an all round awesome person. I chuckled when I read her facts and literarily screamed “NO WAY” when I noticed she had tagged me to do this post. In some way, I was almost expecting it. It’s too easy to be just another blogger and become very impersonal but for the purposes of stepping out from behind the screen I decided to reveal some

Sometimes I realise that things don’t always go to plan. Initially I set out to put up a blog post at least once a week. But you quickly realise, life gets busy especially in the last leg of summer when everyone is making the most of the last ray of sunshine before the dreaded cold dark winter days makes an appearance. So on Sunday morning, I grabbed my wonderful friend Alex and we seized the opportunity of what was a beautiful summer morning headed down to Blackheath village and took

The story of the hat; I see a blogger who I am in awe of wearing the hat, immediately I fall in love I know I want exactly the same hat. A few days later I visit my gorgeous friend Vivienne (she has featured on one of my previous post) she was showing me her rather impressive hat collection and she has same hat the blogger was wearing.
