A guide to style and good tailoring

Hi welcome to my own unique perspective on what constitutes style and individualism. The vast majority of the photos are taken using a mobile phone camera and I have no make up on.......

I'm in my late 30's and I'm also a widow which probably explains why I look so god damn hot in black, well that and being an ivory skinned pale red head! It also documents my wardrobe, so many people seem fascinated by my clothes and compliment me for how I look wearing them.

It is one woman's campaign against Jeans, Tracksuits and Ugg Boots!

More importantly it's about altering your view on life and trying to do the right thing even though it isn't always the easiest.

This blog is a story in taking pride in yourself and not letting yourself go, or settling for second best because you know what girls? No one really is better than someone if they don't treat you like a Queen................

9 to 5: Dolly one of my guilty pleasures

We all have a guilty pleasure that we can't help but engage in. I confess mine is Dolly Parton! She is awesome and I can't fault the woman who said, “It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen.”

I'm hearing you Dolly. I think there is part of us that likes to dress up in crazy things and have fun :)

I like listening to 9 to 5 on the way to work, it starts my day with a quirky smile. This outfit is my homage to the ladies in the original 9 to 5 film.

Blouse: Bettie Page Clothing - Puff Ball Sleeve in Blue
Dress: Bettie Page Clothing - Jumper Dress
Shoes: Kurt Geiger

This outfit really works hard at the office, it is flattering and feminine and you can get an entirely different look be altering the blouse. If you are a bigger busted lady then I might not recommend this one for you. You don't want to arrive into the room five minutes after your chest!!

There is part of me that thinks of this outfit as being in the vein of "Geeky librarian to sex goddess", you know the ones where they have their hair up and glasses on? I don't wear glasses but my friend had some frames with no lenses so we went for it - I love the 'Eric Morecambe' style frames in the second picture, they are just "full on geek"! Love it!!!
