C Is For Capable!

Hi Gals, sorry my post's have been a little less frequent, sometimes life is a bit of a whirlwind, I have been working with the web developers to get my new website of the ground, finger's and toes's crossed we are nearly ready to launch it!
I have missed our get togethers and chat's about style and am in need of a bit of mystery and versatility from my autumn coat this season. I have decided it has to be a coat that works well with A-line shift dresses, the pencil skirt and the 70s flare wide leg trouser and floppy hat, all key trends for this A/W 2010. The pictures below may give you a clue, yep it has to be a cape. I have decided to create my own version oozing mystery and sophistication , look out for my DIY cape post up next and you too can join the ranks of chic caped women this autumn! Have you tried this trend yet?! Finish with a vintage pin on the collar and a hat set a jaunty angle and plenty of scarlet lippy!

You Asked I Answered, Inspiration For The Office And For Curvy Gal's!

Hi GALS, todays post was inspired by the some recent comments/requests for some ideas for great pieces of clothing for curvy gals as well as office wear looks from you! All Laura Ashley, Monsoon, Evans and Clarks. 

long line marl jacket, smart without looking too starchy three central button's elongate short waists, undo an extra button to create a deep flattering v. Let this beauty add a relaxed twist to vintage style knits and classic cuts. Great with grape, berry, blueberry , grey and polka dots of course!


Team off and on duty flattering knits with luxe textures, velvet and suede or simple utility shapes, to play up your womanly curves in all the right places! 

                                   Have fun! x

Step AWAY From The Ice-cream Summers Over....

So meltingly pretty

light as a feather

whispers of sherbet

Don't be too heartbroken though, swap your cool ices for warm taffy moments

buttery and smooth

bye, bye little ice-cream van till next summer!

Till then dress in heap's of warm molasses, toffee and caramel tone's, like this earthy but chic combo from Zara, leather skirt and mohair weave sweater, all wrapped up with a sweet leather bow. Do you want to trade?

Every Devon Cloud Has A Silver Lining! x

 I'm back fom my hols in Devon! You maybe wondering why my red spotty hat is featured here again, well I felt a little sorry for it as it never got out the front door of our cottage. Instead due to a unexpectedly wet and windy week, I was left to dream up curled in front of a log fire, what fabulous wet weather attire I could have brought along for my holiday, had I not been so optimistic about the possibilty of sunshine! Holiday photo's to follow soon of the 300 year old property we stayed in and the beautiful countryside. Thank-you for all your latest comments on what post's you would like to see here, I feel so inspired, by all your suggestions. So look out for post's on all your idea's! I will be anouncing the winner of my nautical giveaway very shortly!

 Saving up for a rainy day, to wear these stunning Marc Jacobs Wellies, in putty patent, tres chic??!!!

Are you a wellies or umbrella girl? Splashing in moonlite puddle's? Or twirling the stem of your pretty brolly and spinning raindrop's into rainbow's?ME? I'm a little greedy, I'm both!!
