Who knew shoulders could be so sexy?

We’re used to seeing legs and cleavage.  With the creation of wow bras, maximisation bras and the make- your- breasts-  look-two- sizes- bigger bras, it isn’t a surprise that the assets women show in order to impress are those we probably shouldn’t be showing. But things are soon changing. Off the shoulder styles have made [...]

The Short Straw

I’m standing in the changing rooms looking like an overgrown five year old wearing her mother’s frock. Except I’m not five, and I’m not wearing my mother’s clothes, I’m simply short. There, I said it. Short with a capital S. Five foot one to be precise. If you’ve ever taken an overly generous lump off [...]

It’s as Simple as Black and White

I have never been, and quite frankly never will be, a fan of sales; in fact I like to avoid them at all costs. January therefore is a waiting game for me as I eagerly anticipate new season clothes and accessories like a puppy drooling at a butcher’s window. So as sale items are slowly [...]

Stand To Attention

September is now upon us and our favourite high street stores were in a serious hurry to stock up on autumn/winter trends after our abysmal summer.   I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I get way too excited at the prospect of new season clothes and I start wishing I had a diary [...]

An Almost Great British Success Story

My Dr Martens are probably the longest lasting, certainly the most durable items in my wardrobe. And looking at the brands soaring sales figures, it seems I’m not the only devotee.

Spring to Summer Wardrobe

It’s the bane of our lives. The conversation that is statistically the most talked about topic amongst people in this country and one that causes us to be ridiculed by other, more fortunate sun-blessed countries. Of course, I am referring to the not so great, British weather. Annoyances related to this include; the embarrassing moment [...]

Boys Just Wanna Have Fun!

This season it’s not just the girls who have been wooing us with their fancy footwear, there are also hot new footwear trends that the boys can try too.   When thinking about fashion, it’s more than likely that ladies wear will receive the most spotlight, which is why I have chosen to write an [...]

Stars and Stripes
