HOW TO MAKE A SLOGAN STRAW HAT

HOW TO MAKE A SLOGAN STRAW HAT If, like me, you love whimsical fashion then a slogan straw hat must be one of your summer fashion staples. Recently, I considered buying an £18 straw hat stitched with the slogan, ‘I’m Busy’. It quickly sold out. Disappointed, I decided to make my own when I found this […] 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…

LINDY BOP MATILDA DRESS :: THIS OLD THING

LINDY BOP MATILDA DRESS :: THIS OLD THING  As I mentioned in my recent Buyer’s Archive post, I’ve reached a real turning point with my attitude towards clothes and to prove it, I’ve started to clear out a large proportion of my wardrobe. My personal style hasn’t changed, but how I feel in my clothes […] 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…

I LOVE CAROUSEL CHARLOTTE DRESS

 I LOVE CAROUSEL CHARLOTTE DRESS For the first time in many years, World Book Day passed me by. This year, no fancy dress was required and certainly no conversation about well-loved books. I no longer teach primary age children, but despite this, my subconscious decided to play a practical joke on me when I inadvertently […] Read more…
