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

Happy Christmas! Santa hurried down the chimney. Who wouldn't?

For Christmas Day I wanted something that was feminine, pretty but a bit more grown up than yesterday's 'babygirl' look. 

The dress has to be up to the challenges of Christmas Day. Patterns are kitchen camouflage should your apron be found lacking; Circles skirts are also great for sprinting after your sisters escaping dogs which has formed part of the Christmas dinner tradition for years now LOL It also has to have a bit of give in the waist for dinner :) Effortless, elegant, practical and fun!

This dress falls beautifully over your figure, it somehow manages to cling to the right places whilst at the same time making you want to dance around the house to a bit of Bing and Frank!

The top is rouched and has piping that accentuates your bust, it is a slim fit to the waist, with a tie halterneck. The full skirt is just made to make you spin but it still flatters the figure. It is an ageless design and print. A pale English rose in a dark cabbage rose print :) an all round winner and "baby bear's porridge" when it comes to what to wear for Christmas day.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS - wherever you are, whatever you are doing, keep calm and do it fabulously and with style!

Big hugs to all the awesome people who have touched my life this year.

Love and hot chocolate
Take care, stay safe


P.S. Don't forget to make your Christmas wish!
