Charity committee meeting...

This is my best grown up dressing, I just love a dress, put it on with a pair of tights and you look all grown up and organised. No need for accessories or anything complicated. This one is from M & S Limited Collection, the purple reminds me of Kate Spade.  Sorry about headless horsewoman last shot but hair was looking particularly dreadful in the other pic.  The coat was a market find from about 15 years ago, I am working on a whole Russian look, I have boots and Cossack hat coming soon so will reveal all. The belt is an ancient one from Asprey, I love simple, wide good quality leather belts (in dark colours as I have no waist and need all the help I can get) and they are quite rare, whenever I see one I buy it and keep it forever.

As I haven't got this whole clothes thing cracked I am going for a series of fancy dress outfits.  This one is grown up organised lady who doesn't work as a lawyer.


  1. Like the purple dress coat does look a bit past it.

    1. You're right it was 40 quid from Shepherd's Bush market 15 years ago so shouldn't expect it to go on forever.

    1. I guess that depends on the definition of work, I used to live to work rather than work to live, 16 hours a day in the office knackered all the time, missed my kids grow up and lost touch with all my friends. Now I am flat broke but making a bit of money out of what I love and waking up every day happy so doesn't feel like 'work' in the true sense.


I would love to hear from you and quite happy for some lively debate so feel free to say what you think! ....
