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

Sometimes it's a game of chess

We often forget is that it is the Queen that is the most powerful piece on the board. Queens rock :) Anyway rather exciting today in 1907 the Culinan diamond was found, swoon they form part of the crown jewels.

It is interesting that historically Queens seem to lead us through period of great change, Elizabeth 1st, where we went from the poorest nation (bar Scotland) to the richest, Victoria where we just had amazing ideas and fantastic names - Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Capability Brown not to mention our current queen who will hopefully fingers crossed become the longest reigning monarch. How good will that weekend party be? Chez Marv is pre-booked.

Here's to the hellbunny black and white check sweetheart swing dress, I love the way the check moves laterally on the top and then on the diagonal on the skirt; it is just like the moves of the rook and the bishop both of which are required to emulate the mobility and fire power of the queen. The heart shaped pockets reminds us of the softer side of the queen too.

Dress: Hellbunny sweetheart swing dress
Shoes: Bordello Mary Janes
