About Me

Hi!BOYISHK7aboutmesilkpathdiary@gmail.com and Instagram @silkpathdiary

I’m in my fifth decade, wife to an adored husband and a petite ‘everymum’ of 3 adolescents. My blog is mostly about finding my personal style after years of being in a fashion wilderness. I’ve done more than enough shopping so now the challenge is to enjoy what I have, re-mixing as often as possible and having fun doing it.

I always try to look presentable everyday, you know, just in case Chris Pine or Henry Cavill happen to cross my path … I am of the belief that to be well and appropriately dressed is a compliment to whomever one sees during the day and a sign of self respect. Does this make me seem hopelessly old fashioned? Another of my passions are the old – usually black and white – films from the 40’s and 50’s. I just love the way everyone spoke and dressed. That’s the start of my appreciation of all things vintage.


I’ve been a lover of vintage clothes and accessories since student days. Nothing much beats the excitement and pleasure of a vintage treasure that I can wear in my daily life.
Finally, I’m lucky enough that my bag collection dreams of Céline, Chanel and Hermès came true … in that order.

Well, I hope you’ll check in often to read my ramblings on couture, style, fashion, vintage, film and a little travel thrown in for good measure.

Thanks so much for visiting!

    I love the style on the old black and white movies too. The style of the girls for example in the Old Alfred Hitchock Black and Whites….. Grace Kelly, Tippi Hedren, beautiful and inspiring.

    Hello! I found you here by following the trail from a post with your wonderful Lindy bag (and now I can’t remember exactly how I got here). In any event, you have a great sense of style, and as the mom of three boys, I need all the inspiration I can get!
