To tight or not to tight that is the question

Or some random fashion musing - might be more apt.  It is that time of year girls - the sun is out - but our legs are white and really is it that warm??  Now there is always the jean or the pant but if you are a skirt girl - at what stage of spring is the black opaque just too, well, black, winter, dark, brr - you with me??  Now you can go for the coloured tight - a look i love on others but never seems to quite make it to my legs - now being a child of the 70's - i love a tan so relatively speaking there is still a touch of colour to my legs (a touch being the operative word) so in the interests of spring i have gone for the bare leg - so girls here is our Thursday fashion musing - should i have done the tight and if so, which ones??  Mmmm....  have a good weekend - nearly here xx

The scarf adds that pop of colour because i do love beige and i feel the need for a bit of colour

Here he is the lovely boy

And this is what he thinks of random fashion musings ..

I love my new Amadeo Cameo Ring - kind of shown here!

High back pleat (in motion) - the idea - the front (high) split will not be quite so ... well split

My favourite, and i mean most favourite, coat

Now i promised you a fashion and frank shoot with the man and my new most favourite coat ensemble - what you got - cos life is like that - is a Claire shoot with half the ensemble - but hey it is a start - i wore this last Friday and met my lovely tailor/friend Jackie who (bless her) said i looked totally fab and loved the outfit and then laughed that i was wearing my mums shoes and i so was!

Now the other half of my fashion and frank fave masterpiece is a pair of shorts - yep - you heard it - so i am now a 45 year old in shorts and their mums shoes!  and that truly is fashion for you - Frankie sends fond hello's xx

Spot the lining

A lesson i have recently learnt - the bag is not quite right with the coat but very right with the trsrs, scarf etc - by adding a couple of accent colours you can make two colours that dont quite work on their own work - it is all in the entire outfit so just keep adding accents, mix mix mix - makes your pieces go further and might prove more interesting

OMG its been a while!

Even my mum has been bemoaning my lack of blogging - why - i am not sure but at least i have one fan!  I have had the most full on Jan/Feb with work, but it is calming down - at least for a week or two and we have produced some fabulous results so it was worth it.  When it is mad like that i have to manage my priorities and they are my man, my mates and my work so something had to suffer and it was my blog - i have been keeping up with all of your fab sites but not often had time to comment - so if you havent seen me for a while i was there - virtually!

I thought i would come back with what i wore on Saturday - as i have forgotten most of what has come before - it was a bit of self portraiture which is not my fave but i have an amazing Fashion and Frank outfit to share with you which mr has to capture this weekend - it is ammmmaaazing.  In the meantime i will share this little vignette which a lovely young girl told me she loved and that i reminded her of SJP in it - i told the man as i was extremely flattered - he felt it not a compliment - and therein i think lies the difference between man and woman - have a very fab week xxx

Who is peeping behind Mummy - sulky boy 

Saturday was a pretty fab day - meet my new handbag

What a gorgeous day - i think winter sun is my favourite kind

The skirt is one of my own - i think one of the hardest things to find is the perfect basic in a really really good cloth - so to that end i am designing a range of basics for myself in cashmeres and silks - this is my classic A-line front pleat in a Lora Piano Grey Cashmere - i wore it in the car for nearly 4 hours and all it needed was a light steam - that is a successful piece to my mind - that and that it fits and flatters
