Did you know a frock coat actually started out as a man’s coat? It was popular in the Victorian and Edwardian period.  For a long time, a frock coat for weddings and special occasions was the obvious choice. Then it fell out of fashion. The look became frumpy  – think of some of the Queen’s […]

Pink dresses – why you are never too old to be pretty in pink

We tend to associate pink dresses with young girls don’t we? Think Barbie, think Cinderella. A lot of mothers of the bride tell me they are too old to wear pink. I disagree. There is a shade of pink for everyone of us. For me, it’s more a coral tone. A friend of mine who […]
