MONOCHROME BRIGHTS :: REMIXING AN OLD FAVOURITE

MONOCHROME BRIGHTS :: REMIXING AN OLD FAVOURITE First blossom, now rapeseed; are you tired of these spring cliches yet? I’m sure many spring seasons have passed that have been equally as scenic and picturesque, but I’ve yet to recall them. Suddenly the fields in our local area are awash with colour and colourful wildflowers are […] Read more…

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

If you’re as old as me, you’ll remember neighbourhood watch- a scheme that saw neighbours hold regular meetings and work in partnership with the police to make communities safer. The scheme is still going today, but it’s not what I’m referring to in my blog title. No, I’m talking about how it always catches me […] Read more…

PORT SUNLIGHT :: WES ANDERSON STYLE

Port Sunlight. With a name so optimistically cheery, you’d be forgiven for expecting spring weather to match, however, mother nature has a great sense of humour. By Sunday, last week’s glimpse of summer had faded to wind and rain. Summer dresses back in hiding, it was time to appease my disappointment by bringing out the red, […] Read more…

DATE NIGHT DRESSING

When it comes to date night, John and I aren’t hard to please; give us a fish and chip supper, a bottle of fizz (be it Dandelion & Burdock, or Cava) throw in a good night of television and we’re happy to stay in. It’s not that we don’t enjoy going out, it’s just not […] Read more…

THE BUYER’S ARCHIVE :: MARCH

March. The month when my love hate relationship with clothes began. Trust me, there’s no one more surprised than I. One moment, I wanted all of the clothes. The next, I found myself clearing out liquidating my wardrobe with gusto, walking past most charity shops and browsing, lots of it, in high street shops. Despite this increased […] Read more…

ONE WOMAN’S JUNK…

…is another woman’s treasure and that’s certainly true for my latest find, my ‘JUNK’ trash can bag. When it comes to novelty bags, I think they’re something you either love or hate, but I love them in all of their kitsch, tacky or garish splendor. The brighter, the better! I found this bag in a Huddersfield […] Read more…

LIFE LATELY :: WYCOLLER (FT. WHAT I THRIFTED #25 #26)

Well, haven’t things been a little quiet around here recently? My short hiatus wasn’t planned, nor intended, but very much needed. I haven’t intentionally been keeping things quiet, but I do have news to share- I have a new job! I’ve sidestepped into a different career, a different sector, but my passions of social media and […] Read more…

THE BUYER’S ARCHIVE :: FEBRUARY

Pinch, punch! First of the month! So here we are, the start of another month which can only mean… another Buyer’s Archive post! This month, I bought a total of 15 pieces of clothing from charity shops (insert see-no-evil monkey here) and a mere 4 from the high street. It may sound a lot, but thanks to half term […] Read more…

COME AS YOU ARE :: WHAT I THRIFTED #22

I am a child of the nineties and it’s because of that, I tend to stay away from most of the era’s trends that have inevitably made a comeback. In the early nineties, I owned a shell suit, thought blue mascara was cool, kept my wild, pre-straighteners hair tame with a tacky, velvet headband and came […] Read more…
