Why you never let your husband take your OOTD photos.

Back in 2014 I participated in Frocktober, raising some coin for ovarian cancer research by wearing a frock every day for a whole month and posting photos online every day of said frock. I do not own a tripod nor did I want to be fucking around with an actual camera every day, so it ...

Packing for a summer holiday: this is not how it’s done.

You might think that visiting the same country every few years for a summer holiday, a person would definitely get the hang of what kind of clothes work best. Especially considering that said person had in fact visited this same place five times in twelve years, with each visit lasting a minimum of six weeks. ...

OOTD: holiday time!

It’s a grey, rainy, and downright miserable day outside right now. It’s the kind of cold and windy woolly-scarf and hot tea weather that makes you yearn for a fireplace and some marshmallows. And yet I’m up to my microbladed eyebrows in all the summer frocks and sandals. How good is it to escape on ...

OOTD: a coat with attitude

Many years ago during a late night online shopping session I spied the kind of coat I loved but wasn’t sure I would wear. Throwing caution to the wind I snapped up this fluffy oversized and obviously faux fur leopard print coat, which always gets some kind of comment or raised eyebrows because it’s just ...

OOTD: Coming up roses

There are the outfits I cobble together that are sometimes more work or occasion appropriate than what I might normally wear, and then there are those things I love to wear that are neither work or occasion appropriate but are definitely more “me”. This look is definitely the kind I prefer to wear. The mix ...

OOTD: feeling fierce

The second the weather starts cooling down some switch flicks in my head which causes me to forget, or ignore, all the dresses in my wardrobe that don’t come with sleeves. It takes an unseasonably warm Autumn day to remind me that all I need to do is add a jacket. *face palm* Add the ...

OOTD: pineapple power

For someone who thinks she has enough black in her wardrobe to handle life in the funeral business there are actually a lot of prints. Many times I’ll see an out-there print on someone else and think how much I love it, despite the fact that I would never actually notice it in a store or ...

OOTD: it’s not a vest it’s a sleeveless jacket

I’ve mentioned before my issue with vests, and when they’re longline like the ones I like then to me they’re obviously more like a sleeveless jacket. Now that that’s settled… There’s nothing like a bright punch of colour to brighten your day as well as your outfit. Whenever I wear bright pink I seem to receive ...

OOTD: silky snakeskin

Okay, let me begin by saying that snakes are my one phobia. As in the very definition of a crippling and stomach churning anxiety inducing phobia. But strangely I never met a snake print anything I didn’t love. Today’s OOTD is from Winter 2016 via The Iconic, and is a winning combo of shirt dress plus ...

OOTD: boho vibes

Give me a sheer floaty top with embroidery any day. A bit chilly to be worn on it’s own outdoors today but perfect for working from home. Pictured here paired with black skinny jeans and my favourite ankle boots. It might even help if I could remember where everything came from… I couldn’t resist sharing ...
