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

It isn't what you wear, it's how you wear it!

I was raised to the mantra it isn't what you wear it is how you wear it! People say it is easy to look nice in pretty dresses. 

The question is, does the woman make the clothes? Or do the clothes make the woman? With the brazen confidence that only a red head can show, here I am in my raincoat :)

It's a 1940's WW2 utility style raincoat with huge pockets, a fabric belt and enough buttons to give Cadbury's a run for their money. The colour is a beautiful deep British racing green.

I really don't mind what other people wear as long as they feel good when they wear it, and that is the essence of it. It is about being yourself and accepting people as they are, it is also about not making assumptions based on people's appearance.

It is about trying to think the best of people and not judging them or jumping to conclusions. It is just about letting people be themselves :) and accepting them as they are. How many people make decisions based on fear? They decide they will not get to know someone in case they are rejected, so they reject the other person first. Who wants a life lived in fear?

If your inner beauty and personality radiates in your smile and twinkles in your eye then you can do anything, let alone wear absolutely anything!

God damn I make a raincoat look mighty fine ;) ........
