With their love of denim and lashings of groovy inspiration, their designs are classic, pragmatic, clever and very independent.

You really sense it’s an high energy, slow process with thought and quality poured in.

They catch the nostalgic vibe of pre-mass market, when things were built to last and gently soften in the sun, improving with age and use.

To be worn collecting sea-shells on a sandy beach..or blinged up with statement jewellery at a posh party in London.

They work.

Wholesome, exhilarating food for the eyes, I can eat it all standing up…and always want more.

Trick or Treat?

The perfect party skirt has to be the jewel in the crown this party-hopping season, acting like a human Christmas tree, catching the sparkle and reflecting back the smiles and giddy moments.  In the haute spot is Burberry with their mermaid inspired work of art – enough to make the most bah-humbug joy-squasher gimlet eyed with misty desire..

Also working in the skirt corner is the ability to mix the well-heeled refined with the everyday low: tactile jumpers or denim or even t-shirts on top….contrasting the glittering below..cocktail mixes of opposites that create a long drink of inherently cool pleasure..

Sequins just too eighties? How about the pared back elegance that is metallic leather? Easily teamed with white when the sun comes out again, this Maje skirt will even carry you on a silver ray of light all the way through to summer..

And don’t forget the high street  – if red wine and dancing on the tables are your party tricks of choice, maybe fake is the way to go..

But faux or real, trick or treat..the choice is yours..

Marking Time..

Do you remember Clothkits? They’re a huge dollop of nostalgia for me as the first clothes I truly coveted and lusted over at school.  They came in easy-sew kits to make up, including all sorts of wonderful, genius things like rag dolls as well..

There was always an extra touch..like her matching bag to add the final flourish and make them utterly desirable..

How cute?

The padded coats were particularly memorable…if this came in my size now, I would have it..

But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel..I googled them and Clothkits is still running, and many of these designs are still available plus a host more..

From old originals…05e2361cdb8b4a16b1c79fa87b0e240e-1

To their modern equivalents..

If you want to give something crafty for Christmas..so crafty you can put a tail on it and call it a fox?..check them out..their range is incredible..

There’s something about a black and white striped pencil skirt (This one from Burberry Porsum)

But then it doesn’t look bad in blue and blue either….
