Spring Pants

SPRINGPANTSCLOSEA variation on the outfit here, this time for a short casual meeting. Another shrunken accessory – Hermès skinny belt. I actually get a lot of wear out my belts. As well as vintage clothes and bags, I’ve amassed too many belts strangely enough. I’m not sure why exactly because my waist has never been my best feature. Continue reading

Film Friday: Lucy

I haven’t done a film review for a long while simply because I don’t get many chances to see grown up films so when the film ‘Lucy’ came out in the Summer holiday (way before its premier in the UK) I couldn’t believe my luck! Nor could a lot of other people because that weekend, cinema websites crashed and seats were sold out across many cinemas.indexThe draw was Luc Besson for me. I loved his films before realising they were his. His fans won’t be disappointed. I don’t think I’ve ever watched a film with Scarlett Johansson, amazing isn’t it except that she’s really not of my generation I guess. Anyway, I was very impressed by her portrayal of Lucy.

Ode to Coats

020714_Tommy_Ton_rtw_Fall_2014_slide_060a As we change seasons and store away our Winter coats, I wanted to round up some of my favourite coats. I’ve always loved coats and living in UK, that’s a very good thing 🙂 As a kid I had the cutest red wool coat and later as a tween, best not to mention the coat wilderness, suffice to say it was fail during that time but I did discover the trench coat from C&A. I was the only one to wear it in the 6th Form…apart from the teachers lol! All the other girls were into massive puffer jackets and anoraks. Then came the awful 80s with the horrid shoulder pads – none of my coats survived from that era except for the vintage treasures I found. These vintage coats were my staple for much of the 90’s and 00s. I only replaced a couple of my vintage coats and added more to my collection a few years ago. Continue reading

Oscars 2014: Favourites

article-2571890-1BFB7FDF00000578-258_634x747The Oscar winners (and others) have had the time to catch up on their sleep and the rest of us had the chance to dissect and digest what everyone wore. These are the stand out looks for me. Who would have thought Pink had it in her to look so stunningly beautiful in what is for her a rather traditional evening gown? Continue reading

A Modern Step: Leather and Suede

I meant to post something about Updating and Modernising one’s closet by way of discussing this point reached in my own journey, but I’ll simply show a look that somehow emerged on Sunday morning.

Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday

LEATHERSUEDEI knew what I wanted to wear on top and on my feet but struggled with the bottoms rejecting all the skirts until I got to this leather one also here. It felt instantly right and I don’t know if it’s a coincidence that leather and suede do so much together!  Continue reading
