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

Nightmare before Christmas... Mars Attacks!!!

When it comes to Christmas Eve I can't help myself I have to watch "The Nightmare Before Christmas". It is so funny; I just really like the idea of Halloween trying to do Christmas. The heroine being a red head helps too.

After watching that it has to be "Mars Attacks!", I know I shouldn't like it, I know it is cheesy and kitsch - but it is just fantastically funny, and you can't find it's parallel as a modern homage to the 1950's B Movie!

So in honour of the maestro Tim Burton, I have found myself unable to resist the allure of one of my "Babygirl" numbers.

It has a scrummy Peter Pan collar, I like the way they frame your neckline and face. The cut of the dress is a 50s day dress and the print is reminiscent of the B movie scene so it felt right. I also enjoy the muted lilacs, purples and mauves in this dress. 

The ghoulish print is perfect for anyone meant to haunt fabulously. LOL The spirit of Christmas !!! Now pass the Gin, there's a good fellow :)

Santa baby, hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you'll check off my Christmas list.....................
