Ex-Con seen in Vans

My friend Uli once told me a story about her teenage son. She had asked him if she looked too old to be wearing something. He answered that she looked fine, but the thing he thought was really embarrassing was ‘old people’ (so, I’m guessing, anyone over 30) wearing Converse shoes. I must admit, it did […]

Mary-Jane not just an Olsen

Vogue has decreed it, Mary-Janes are officially a trend.  Except we don’t really have trends any more, Anna said so. When she spoke to  Style.com in Paris after the a/w 15/16 shows she explained designers were sticking to their personal vision rather than trying to pre-empt a broader design zeitgeist. “I personally think it’s a wonderful […]

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 […]

Mid/Life/’Slashie’

I love this quote.  I need to remind myself of it every time I worry that I’m too old, too invisible, too late to do something.  (Not so much wear something, I’m pretty good at staying in touch with my inner thirty year old). So I guess it’s a good quote to introduce my first post […]

Bike Shorts are for Bikes

This is unforgivable. Karl was there in the 80’s, so he knows as well as I do that the biker short under long top/dress/peplum should never be seen again. Yet horror upon horror, there they were, on his catwalk just last week. Sure, they do get around the dress is too short as a dress, […]

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 […]

New clothes, new look.

My Friend Uli has been waiting for me to post some of my outfits from a recent holiday in US. Except that I didn’t take those sort of pics. So I thought I’d post this one, as it’s of an outfit I bought there. As well as being a bit of a segue from my […]

There’s no place like home

I think Dorothy was wearing something like these when she kept on clicking her heels – after a few hours walking around in them, there really is no place like home and being barefoot. But I still love them. As well as a black, red, white palette. Looking at it now, I think look 1 […]

White Jeans

I have been known to disparage white jeans, especially on an older woman. So as it happens when I wore this outfit, I raised the eyebrows of a white jean loving friend who’d clearly taking umbrage at my previous criticisms. But as it always is, it’s not really the white jeans fault. Those comments were […]

There’s always an end in trend?

My blogging crush manrepeller.com today wrote about how fashion has evolved beyond, big key trends. She starts “People used to wait around for trends. They’d wait for Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar or Women’s Wear Daily to report on the hemlines, sleeve lengths, colors or textures of the bi-annual seasons in Paris, and those accounts would […]
