Adventures In Clothing

Dressing is an adventure not a chore. 
Coat (Jumble sale), Hat and boots (Charity shop), Blouse (TopShop), Suede shorts (Clothes Show Live, Vintage Village)

I only own clothes I love, if I don't feel wonderful in something it goes.


I never buy for practicality or to match something I already own. I shop like a magpie, grabbing beautiful colours and fabulous fabrics from church halls and charity shops with no thought as to whether they will fit into my wardrobe. The only criteria I have for buying something is that I have to love it.


Crochet shawl (Jumble sale) 

As long as I feel fabulous I don't care if other people think I look ridiculous.

  4. Wow! Thanks for those lovely comments.
    I was stopped by some fashion students earlier today and asked if it was okay if they took some photos as they thought I was "supremely stylish".
    G: The TopShop blouse was picked up in their sale a couple of weeks ago for £5 - I'd had my eye on it for a while and so was delighted as it started off at £32!
