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................

Cocktails, Dixiefried......and "If in doubt"

I have resisted the urge to watch GWTW, and so must satisfy my inner "Southern Belle" another way.  Everyone has a couple of "If in doubt dresses", they are the ones you go to time after time, they are old reliable ................ Hmmmm Dixiefried styling ........... as my mind wanders to the beautiful white and green print dress Scarlett wore to Twelve Oaks, or the infamous curtains dress. 

This dress pulls it out of the bag every time, she has been a staple in my wardrobe for years and that is true testament to the style of a dress. 

Your eye is instantly drawn to the bold black piping and buttons on the skirt slit. The thick black outlines and accentuates the female form working with your curves. The colour is stunning in between an olive an emerald, the unusual neckline highlights the face when worn without a bolero. 

This go to number is good for shopping or cocktails with the girls as it is for a dinner date, party or a trip to The Lowry. I like that it is simple and bold a lovely balance.

Here's to the tried and tested, a dead cert, Dixiefried we salute your southern belle sassy style :)

The Perfect woman:
Scarlett in strength
Melanie in heart
and Belle Watling in the bedroom
