An Homage

  Thought as I loved Columbine’s (  execution I posted about last week, I may as well give it an outing myself.  I think it’s ok to be a SWF if you live in opposite hemispheres. I really felt good today.  Thanks Columbine. My version features a mix of Zara (jacket, jeans and scarf), Tsubi […]

Uli talks belts

Another day at the doctors with sick offspring.  No point getting dressed up. Jeans on a budget is tricky but it’s amazing what you can get away with if the belt is nice. Somehow it’s easier to pull off cheap jeans with a good belt than the other way around. These jeans are cheapies from […]

New Life Wanted

  Why can’t I have a life where I can get dressed up like this?   (I’m not sure how I credit this photo, apologies)


  Every since I fell in love with the Bay City Rollers circa 1975 I’ve had a soft spot for tartan. Which is good this year, because there’s a lot going round and I am a bit of it for myself. Take this shirt from Zara.  Love the unexpected draping with the workman like feel […]

This week’s shopping

So I headed to Tuchuzy yesterday to exchange a white rain coat that I’d bought with big ideas.  Too big for me at second thought, and the type of sartorial style-statement better made by someone in their second or third decade and most likely spending more than one family lunch a week in a suburb […]


Wow, I’m freaking out a little when I see what I’ve bought but at the same time, it’s not as much as I thought. And I’ve loved wearing most of them – with the exception of the Nancy Ganz.  Hate them! So from top to bottom, left to right again. Top: Isabel Marant earrings; Isabel […]

In the closet

Unfortunately, the quality of the screen grab isn’t great for this – but I thought it would be fun to show you my record of purchases for for the last 12 months.  (I’ve done the same for net-a-porter and will post next). From top and left to right, here goes: Top Line:Twenty8Twelve harem jeans; […]

Hello DHL!

I really wanted a cross body bag that a. wasn’t black and b. was more practical than the dinky, but ‘hopeless if you do anything more than attend an opening Chanel’ I bought a couple of months back.   And then this popped up last week and it had my name on it. And best […]

Uli Wants

Uli says she wants these to take to Sweden – although she prefers the silver and camel version which are sold out.  I totally get it.  They will look as good with a jean, pant or dress (although I wouldn’t go there with shorts or a longer length skirt/dress)  and with a heel that is […]

Hot and Cold

Hard to dress at moment.  From winter to spring to winter again, all in one day.  I continue the homage to the jean and scarf.  Sorry if I’m getting boring. All old stuff from my wardrobe.  Isabel Marant Wool Jacket from 2011; Current/Elliot jeans from about 4 years ago, same with Chloe boots. Zara shirt […]
