Rain Rain Go Away!

It has not stopped - incessant, deluge - and my constant "oh but we need it" echoing forth through the land is quite frankly wearing thin.  And of course, when the weather poses sartorial conundrums, i muse forth...  I dont want to wear black shoes, i want to wear my new spring colours, they do not go with black shoes but i do not have any rain proof other than black shoes - see, fashion conundrum, and then i remembered these really, really old brown dries booties - a tad cowboy-ish, rather long in the length - but retro and i think somewhat cool ( i am not sure i am not beyond cool ) however i am clinging to a vestige. Then i remembered my decade odd old Choo handbag and it all kind of worked with my new, very new, fashion and frank jacket and mint ( i know, i know - trend driven or what) fashion and frank blouse, add my blush miu miu cardi, ubiquitous hat and i think i can brave the weather tomorrow for a day of much needed rest and recouperation - in my case - shopping!  Have a good one xx

These Jeans are fab but i never get jeans that fit me straight away so i took them to Colpani and now they are absolutely perfect - i am now doing this with all my jeans that i buy that are good and never stay that way instead of re-buying i tailor - it is saving me a fortune and it is the way to get that ever so elusive perfect jean.

Kept chopping off either my feet or head but i think you get the idea of the boot ...

I love the way the jacket picks up my eyes really well - and you can really see it in this pic - gorgeous fabric - Joels again.

Birthday Rings, Champagne and Pussy cats

It was my birthday a couple of weekends ago and i had a really lovely Saturday, met friends lunchtime and then my lovely man, Frank and i went for a wander up Sloane Street, some mutual shoe shopping and then champagne and nibbles at the Capital - culminating in a cupcake and a picnic at Birling Gap the following day - it was truly fab.  Now i can honestly say i am not that enthralled by another year post 45 but hey i love the pressies and all the lovely people that remember and make it special, not to mention champagne and cupcakes.  So this is what i wore (the sloane street bit, not the picnic!).

Its here my fashion friends so from me to you - have a very good weekend xx

I love a bit of camel - but i like to liven it up a bit so i got these duck egg blue pumps from Ferragamo - i love them - they kind of do the pastel thing without having to do it too hard... mmm? knowing me - watch this space 

This is my birthday pressie from my lovely man - how stunning is that blue and matches my shoes - double lucky me

This is one of Franks feline nemesis's (english??) - my lovely maine coon Marmy - who is old and arthritic and soo very gentle - gentle giant 

Done up - kind of essential with the weather - hot/cold - what is it doing??

I saw this fabric and fell in love with it - then the buttons and you cant see but it has apple green lining - it is really very easy and the cut is perfect (thank you Jackie) I adore the colours but the fabric is a bit of a pig and even though it is interlined twice i fear for its longevity - so i am loving it right now even more 

I liked the way the bag echoes the fabric without actually matching and the pickup of the ring and shoes plus the bangles pick up the colours in the jacket too - just in case you are interested in quite how anal i am when it comes to my sartorial choices 

From behind - what a cut xx
