If I took any notice of the fashion experts I'd be sporting a nice bob, neutral makeup, discrete jewellery and a flattering wrap dress because that's what you're meant to do when you hit forty, but , as you've probably guessed I don't do rules and am quite happy to dye my long hair black, go heavy on the kohl and strut my stuff in revealing outfits. Hell, if Kylie and SJP can do it, why can't I?
Rules were made for breaking!
Today's naughty little number consists of:
Pink satin kaftan (Jumble Sale)
Customised vintage jeans (Charity shop)
Faux leather belt (Charity shop)
Vintage leather duffle bag (Handmade by my Late Grandma in the 1960's)
Scarab pendant (Car Boot Sale)
I picked up these fab Italian leather boots for £4.99 from the British Heart Foundation yesterday, they've got leather soles and rather groovy wooden stack heels.
Summer's a great time to snaffle a bargain pair of boots or winter coat, nobody else is looking and the charity shops put them out for peanuts as they need the space. These beauts would be priced at £15 come the chillier months.
Just for my lovely friends Bollywood Style Diaries and Helga, here's a close-up of my Victorian carpet bag, inherited from Grandma.
