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 […]

Age Old Fashion Rules

I’m watching ‘What Not To Wear’ (re-runs) and I’m inspired to put my own list together.  With the build that I’m thinking WNTW when you’re on the wrong side of the fashion industry – say, 40 plus (that’s age, not dress size, although neither sides are where a fashion editor’s head is at I’m sure). Unlike […]

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 […]

Monday Shopping List

      Did I mention that I’m self-employed? Well, for the past few months it’s more like self-unemployed and all sorts of onerous adjustments have been made. Simply the worst is that I am on a shopping hiatus until further notice (like, someone pays me to do some work for them). It doesn’t really […]

Mellow Yellow

As much as I loved my white shoe moment earlier in the day, it’s always good getting my feet horizontal.  I am no Sarah Jessica Parker/Carrie in the heel department. I am loving my half price on sale, faux-Celine, genuine-Zara skater style shoes.  I’m wondering if even a little more than my Givenchy version.  Which […]

Work and Play

  If you could call looking after three girls under 10 on school holidays ‘play’. OK, I’ll come clean and admit that I dumped at the cinema and shopped, just a little.  I’m pretty shopped out with Hawaii and Net-a-Porter sale, but I still got the pretend-Celine Vans at Zara (on sale $69.95) and a […]

Ines or Outnes?

For me, this is a good illustration of the difference in story that’s told when  referencing the past and literally wearing the past.  At least that’s what it looks like to me when I look at the elements that make up this outfit. Theoretically a pointy toe and kitten heel are very now.  Ditto a […]
