By degrees, dungarees – a trend prediction for the summer.

Brought to life by Meryl Streep in Mama Mia, Meryl proved all the barriers to style are in the mind.

Which doesn’t stop them being a marmite garment. Would you?

How radical to see them all being worn. Sign of the times hashtag-commonsense.

Snuggly does it..

I looked out the window this morning and just for a fraction of a second thought it was snowing, except it was the last of the leaves caught in a gust and spiralling downwards.  But it’s that sort of time now when evenings draw in early and the weather sits like a duvet over the house, dictating minimal movement. The plus side is the need for comfort – good food, hot drinks, roaring fires and of course, soft, encompassing textures, some of which you can take outside with you, a bit like taking your house out for the day…

Bring it on.

The Dirty Shirt x

The true version of sexy isn’t bandeau dresses and containment, in both the physical and metaphorical sense.  It’s suggestion and just the right number of buttons left undone. And what better way to achieve that than with the humble shirt?

Flashback x

They say the true cycle of fashion is thirty years.  It seems a lot quicker than that to me…but maybe that’s because time is slipping through my fingers at an ever increasing rate.  I can certainly remember this micro-trends first outing back in the eighties.  The key then was vintage, naturally well-worn ripped mens’ 501s with classic black fishnets and either DMs or pointed flats.

(As someone who knows: The larger meshes and little toes never mix.  Soz).
