I’m a Snob – Designer vs High Street Handbags

So, I was in TK Maxx the other day sobbing (hyperbole at the author’s discretion) over a Chloe Nile that was reduced to the bargain price of £800, knowing full well that I would never spend that sort of money…

Short Hair Insecurities

About a week ago I made the impulsive decision to ask my hairdresser to chop off several inches rather than just give me a trim. This clearly wasn’t a well thought out or reasoned decision, especially considering I’ve spent the…

The Most Versatile Summer Shoe: White Superga

So, in case you couldn’t tell already, I have a new favourite pair of shoes. Trainers aren’t really my thing, apart from very utlitarian running trainers and some old converse that, if I’m being honest, are about half a size…

Court Jester

Having fun with fashion is something I’m striving for at the moment. Too often I fall into the trap of wearing jeans and a basic shirt, and it always leaves me feeling a little lacklustre. There’s a reason I reach…

Tonal Dressing: Green on Green on Green

Tonal dressing has never really been my thing. I suspect my dislike for matching colours was born from  my Nan’s love of it, a woman whose favourite outfit makes her look like an adorable plum, as absolutely all of it…

“Unflattering”

Lately I’ve been exploring the concept of “unflattering” clothes that exist in my wardrobe. We’re told to dress for our body shape, to wear the colours that suit us and generally do our utmost to appear as attractive to others…
