How the right coloured dresses make you look younger

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

I adore this time of year – the trees are turning such stunning colours. Maybe the autumn appeals to me so much because it reflects all my best colours when it comes to clothes.  If I am wearing coloured dresses, I always go for something in reds, oranges, browns or greens. These are my “star” […]

How to crack that smart casual dress code

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Invite to Sunday lunch today. An anniversary celebration. Dress code – smart casual.  What does that mean? For me, confusion! I’ve worked in fashion for over 15 years now and I still don’t understand it. Which way do I go? More to the smart or more to the casual? Aaargh! As usual, with only an […]

Monday mornings bring the day dress Diva out in me

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

We’ve all been there I’m sure. Monday morning has sneaked up far too quickly. All those good intentions to get the chores out of the way on Sunday didn’t happen. Your day still sits in a mountain of ironing you ditched last night in favour of Poldark. And it would seem every pair of tights […]


Arming up with sleeves and a baked bean can

Monday, September 26th, 2016

It’s my birthday today! I think sadly I’m now on tricky ground to carry on calling myself mid-40s. I’m starting to notice all those thing that “come with age”  – wearing glasses, middle age spread etc. Whenever I visit my doctor now , his cheerful diagnosis is always that “it’s to do with your age.” […]


Why boutique doesn’t have to mean big bucks

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Word Origin & History. boutique “fashion shop,” 1953, earlier “small shop of any sort” (1767).  So why do many people associate a boutique shop with it being expensive? At the moment we’ve got a range of dresses in our window for under £55. We’ve got evening dresses starting at £85 and day dresses at £48. […]


Autumn dresses have arrived

The attraction of autumn – with apologies to John Keats

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

The downside is driving to and coming home from work in the dark but autumn does have lots of other plus points. That lovely fresh nip in the air, the “mists and mellow fruitfulness” as Mr Keats so eloquently reminds us. Love the fact the weather report this morning on the Chris Evans radio show […]


Whether the weather be fine or whether the weather be not

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

So I’ve dressed for every kind of weather over the past seven days  –  my summer dress to cope with sweltering temperatures up in the 30’s at the start of the week to my wellies (pink of course ) to battle with gale force winds and biblical rain in the last few days. This time […]
