Dune Raffia Clutch

I’m a very organised person. I have clear outs and Spring cleans and tidy ups all the time. But as I’ve said before I’m a bit crap when it comes to organising myself. I keep saying I’m going to diet but I don’t. I am FOREVER moaning about my hair and promising to cut it/dye it/shave…

Top Heavy Dresses

If, like me, you are top heavy then buying dresses sometimes feels like Mission Impossible. I have liked many a dress only to try it on to find it is either a) shapeless and sack-like, making me look twice as big as I am or b) well fitted to all parts except the front which lacks coverage…

Bedtime

I don’t really do nightwear. I wear an oversized man’s white t-shirt. Think Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. But less stabby. Sometimes I really do berate myself for not making more of an effort. I curl up in bed fresh from the bath in my cotton Calvin Klein and imagine the rest of you swanning…

Picnic Basket Bag

I don’t generally buy myself accessories. I’m not a big jewellery person, usually just sticking to my wedding/engagement rings and a pair of simple studs in my ears. I don’t have overflowing collections of decorative scarfs like some of my friends. Or hats. Or sunglasses. But once in a blue moon I see something and…

Flats 

My stupid stupid stoopid foot is still causing me grief. I’ve spent weeks happily limping about in my trusty Birkenstocks but now it’s October and starting to get a bit chilly so I should probably wear covered shoes. Except I don’t want to only wear lace-up trainers, especially seeing as I wear them all day at…

Troop

Today I saw my friend Helen, who I don’t see nearly enough. I’m fairly certain I scandalise Helen every time I see her. She’s always laughing at the ridiculousness that comes out of my mouth and saying “Kimmmmmm” whilst shaking her head. Today I embarrassed her with talking about sex on a gondola (don’t ask)…

Fcuk

After my Drizzle post I have to tell you that I FOUND A MACRAINCOATJACKETPARKA thing! I knew the minute I posted that I couldn’t find anything I would and it would appear that the shopping gods heard my prayers… It’s a dark olive parka come coat from French Connection. Now these pics aren’t great. For a…

Drizzle 

Recently I set about looking for a coat/jacket for Autumn. Something that would be light enough to wear in milder weather but would also stand up to a bit of drizzle.  Don’t say trench. I’ve always wanted a sexy Burberry-esque trench but they weren’t designed for the top heavy amongst us.   We all know…

Alice Temperley

I love this dress.  It’s Somerset by Alice Temperley (John Lewis). If you have a figure like Keira Knightley, all willowy and long limbed, or if you are in fact the actual Keira Knightley, you’d look FABULOUS in this dress.  I have always longed to have that kind of ballerina-type figure. This dress would make me…

Tote

I just impulse bought a new bag. I had a tote I loved for years but then it started falling apart (a familiar story) so I started using jute or canvas shopper bags for every day stuff.  I’ve just started working again and a canvas shopper isn’t great for work as it’s unstructured and open…
