OOTD :: The Great Decjuba Crush of 2017: still going strong

My daughter has taken to asking me if I secretly work for Decjuba, because I’m either raving on about the latest and newest favourite whatever I bought there or encouraging her to go check it out. {And buy her own stuff so she can stop stealing mine. Maybe.} There has been a bunch of new ...

OOTD: lots of colour

There’s something strange in the neighbourhood…so much colour and so many loud prints making their way into my wardrobe…from palm trees to so much green which I usually hate with a passion to pastels to paisleys… I’m going to chalk it up to the warmer weather and a cheerful state of mind… Top: Kmart Skirt: ...

Style Icon:: WINONA RYDER

She’s the 90’s grunge pin-up who’s made a small screen comeback recently, once easily recognised by her gamine pixie-ish cut but these days wearing her hair long and wavy and totally owning it. Style-wise she’s gone from slip dresses and rolled up Levi’s to killer red carpet gowns, but the leather jacket and street vibe ...

OOTD catch up: more polka dots than you can shake a stick at

Fourteen days since my last OOTD post I thought I’d do a quick round up of some of what’s been happening on the “style” scene. Although I’m using the word style very loosely. Both dresses:┬áTARGET The palm tree print is the same one as seen on the slouchy pants a couple of weeks ago, and ...

OOTD: palm trees on her pants

There are prints and then there are prints. My colourful pineapple dress was a huge move for me, but when I spied a pair of slouchy pants in some kind of palm tree print, in a slightly garish green hue {SO not a colour I like}, I can’t even tell you what appealed to me ...

Ten times Kim Kardashian West got it SO right

This post was never going to fall into the Style Icons series, because there have been, as we all know, way too many shockers, but for every ten what-the-f***-was-she-thinking??? looks comes one genuine gem. Even ignoring the older styles before the prerequisite stylist entered the fray, back when most celebs got it wrong more often ...

OOTD: all smocked up.

Take a bloated fat day and combine it with one of the most popular looks of the season, and what you get is comfortable style. You also give yourself free rein to eat too much. I’m talking about the smock. Dress or top, it’s fast taking over from cut out shoulders and off shoulder everything. ...

OOTD: off the shoulder. But not.

The off the shoulder trend has been around for a while now, and it’s taken me until very recently to get on board. Not because I don’t like it but because every time I’ve tried something on I’ve just known that wearing anything that even hinted at restricted arm movement would piss me off. I ...

OOTD: Help! I’m addicted to stripes.

Um, yeah, not even joking. I counted, and I have sixteen striped dresses of various styles {maxi, T shirt dress, midi, shift, etc} and eleven striped tops {T’s, tanks, knits, etc}. That’s A LOT of stripes, and I wonder if I’m even more of a creature of habit than I realise. I mean, I know ...

OOTD: kimono kapers.

Once upon a time I bought myself a kind of lacey fringed black kimono from Kmart, and in my head I could so clearly see how good it would look. It languished in my wardrobe, being tried on a few times but never somehow living up to those visions I had seen in my head. ...
