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

Emotional constipation and words from a Persian

I have to say these really did amuse me, it is always about that level of tolerance isn't it ;)

It made me think of the phrase "They don't tolerate fools gladly" - really I make the whole American Idea of zero tolerance seem mild. 

I think my attitude towards "fools" was heavily influenced by the following verse. I had to write it out in primary school to practice handwriting; it and several others are firmly wedged in my mind. It was written by a Persian, 

He who knows not, and knows that he knows not is a child teach him;
He who knows, and knows not that he knows is asleep wake him;
He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not is a fool shun him,
and he who knows and knows that he knows is wise follow him.

Being shunned just didn't sound cool or awesome, or hot when you were 7.
