All of my friends are very stylish, and each has their own unique way of putting things together. Here is a photo of my friend Di she had a cute knit dress/coat with ruffles. It looked fabulous and I must say, this is after our day out and she still looks great. Di wore this as a dress with boots but you could do it with jeans or leggins. Love the look.

I have been thinking a lot lately about my obsession with clothes and fashion and how much time I spend thinking about it, looking at it, playing with new combinations, creating accessories.
I get distracted as I pass my hat room (I am a Milliner and have a room where I keep all my treasures I have collected and made, and my clothes) as I am cleaning the house or doing washing or just trying to get out the door!
It always happens while I am doing a chore that does not involve creativity. When I give in to my impulsive behavior, I find myself looking at my collection of bits and bobs, ideas explode out of my head and I then find myself overwhelmed and the time I had spare has gone!
To some this may be a frivolous waste of time, but for me it is a necessity, it is something I have to do! (it could also be a lack of discipline).
I have this black dress which I have worn through summer until now in this freezing cold snap we are having. I am just going to show a couple of different ways I have worn it. It can be done in your own ways with most sleeveless (or small sleeve) black dresses with a bit of structure, even better with a zip down the front. There are a few around at the moment. Mine is from Cue. In Summer I obviously wear it with just a cami or no top underneath and add colour with my necklace or a belt. I have also worn it with a pussy bow blouse.
I have chopped my head in some of the photos as I am really not very good at taking my own photo and not photogenic. After taking so many photos, only a few are worthy of me subjecting you to them. I am hoping my photos will get a bit more professional as I go and perhaps be in interesting locations.
|With my fossil bag. It has gold detail and I put the belt over the gilet for a different look.|
|With a wider tan belt and boots and a casual looking jacket gives a more relaxed feel. Could be done with black top underneath or grey.|
|Chopped the boots off as could look good with wedges in black or tan.|

I had a client last week who is a young Mum with a nine month old baby, she is going back to work next month and her husband gave her the Makeover for a gift. As she is so busy with the baby and once she is back at work, needs to be able to look good with minimal fuss we took this in mind with her hair styling and looked at ways to do her makeup without spending too much time on it.
