Winter is coming fast but I still like to think we’re in the Autumn season because it’s my absolute favourite time of the year for fashion. In autumn outfits can be layers but but totally hidden but boring coats.

Talking faces, including one of Gaultier himself, are projected onto models so they wink, talk, and … Continue reading FASHION: From Sidewalk To Catwak

There are various things about my iPhone which stop me blogging, the first is that my WordPress App doesn’t work, and my iPhone is now my main connection to the online world, my trusty laptop lies forgotten in a corner and is only occasionally dusted … Continue reading THOUGHTS: Has Instagram Ruined My Fashion Blog?
