Mutton dressed as lamb

So, we are back to the debate about should women dress their age. Today in the papers Joanna Lumley is saying women should embrace the mutton dressed as lamb look and not worry about having long hair after 40 nor shop in our wonderful high street shops like Top Shop.

I absolutely agree, why should women over a certain age start to look old, frumpy and dowdy. It's all about dressing according to your lifestyle and personality. I see alot of ladies who come to see me for advice on exactly that.....they want to look modern, chic and stunning and WHY NOT!

Being 42 myself I can relate to this, why would I want to look like I'm old before my time when I'm young at heart, fit, healthy and have a very modern outlook on life.
Looking good makes us feel great too.

My recommendation is this, dress according to your personality and lifestyle, you really can wear the trends in ALL our high street stores, we do just twist them to suit us as people.
Our high street is one of the most amazing in the whole world and there should be no shop that you should feel wary of going in. Trust me, you will find something for you in every store

lots of love

More Little Beauties

I spent the day at The Oracle, Reading browsing and shopping for me (it is a very rare occasion! ) and look at the amazing pieces I found.

I just love this little lace shirt with button fastening at the back and great detail on the chest. I found this in Oasis. It is perfect for the Slender/Athletic, Hour glass and Pear body shape.

Then I found this A line bright orange cotton skirt in H & M. The skirt is flat fronted, side fastening which is perfect for the Apple body shape and bang on trend. I rather fancy this with black tights, a black patent shoe boot and black leather jacket....but that's me!


Whilst I was in H & M I then found gorgeous silk feel 'horse print' navy dress. It is so simple yet stunning. Teamed with a navy tight and chesnut ankle or knee high boots. It is perfect for the Hour glass, Slender/Athletic body shape.
It would also look super with a waisted brown leather jacket.

And finally I came across this lovely 60's style dress, again in Oasis. This is an empire line so perfect for the Apple body shape but looks great on the Hour glass, Pear and Slender/Athlectic.
This dress is of a jersey fabric so will also be SO comfortable. Would look great popped with a red wasited cardi to inject some colour.

So what do you think of my findings?

Have a fab weekend

Amazing Accessories

I love fashion and everything that goes with it so you can imagine how excited I got this morning when I popped in to see Fabulous Jewellery.

Gillian never fails to surprise me by the on trend collections she pulls together each season. The quality is great and the price point is perfect.

I love this black and silver statement piece which will look stunning with this geometric print dress by BIBA at House of Fraser

Wow, this necklace would you believe is made from wood which has been dyed, it is light and simply gorgeous. I have teamed it with a lovely grey silk shirt from H & M. Just add in a pair of jeans and a simple stunning outfit is achieved.

Now, this is my favourite wrap bracelet of all time, I have been lucky enough to wear it and it teams with anything you wear due to the gold and silver tones so this is one versatile accessory. I have poppped it with this beautiful dress from Day at Birger from House of Fraser

Accessories complete your look and they look so stunning too.

Lots of love
