My Gucci Chloe Bag

One of the best things about being old? You don’t have to hunt down vintage designer items, you just pull out the first one you ever bought. In my case, in 1997. So, when I started noticing the Chloe Drew bag I had a little deja vu. (Which was fortunate as I certainly didn’t have […]

Look at me, I’m dungareed

I felt a little self conscious when I put these dungarees on this morning (for the first time, they only arrived, via ebay and Spain, yesterday). Surprisingly it wasn’t so much an ‘am I too old for these?’ moment, more a ‘is this too much of a look?’ moment. I’ve been getting these moments a […]

But as it always is, it’s not really the white jeans fault. Those comments were […]

Road Test : Thigh Boots Version 1

I thought I’d take the easy way first. The least ‘Pretty Woman’ combo. Well that which I would wear, anyway. So it was a night at the Opera House and the weather hinted that just enough of a chill would cut through this unrelenting humidity to justify such covered up nether regions. I jumped at […]
