There seem to be a lot of blogs out there with an emphasis on personal style right now. But ironically it sometimes feels like everyone looks the same. Closetvisit, however, has really grabbed my attention. Firstly, I’m happy to say that these are visits into real closets (and even happier to say that some are as chaotic as my own). Secondly, there’s a broad age spectrum and an even broader range of styles. Something for everyone no less. I’m totally hooked….
I wasn’t intending on writing another post about Paris fashion week but I’ve been bitten by the bug! For any vintage aficionado Maison Martin Margiela’s AW14 collection was just full of inspiration – and a real direction change from previous seasons. Tweed and vintage slips – what more can a girl ask for? Long may it last!

Meet Fifi Lapin. You might have seen her about – mainly at fashion shows. As blogs go this is inspired – taking fashion illustration to a new level. Love, love, love….. Snowy is sitting on my lap right now and asking why I haven’t designed a Chanel/ Prada wardrobe for her!
Rather loving these moody, vintage pics from The Gifts of Life tumblr. I love that indian sheer top – can that really be vintage? If so please can it make it’s way to Syd’s Vintage in Kirkdale so I can purchase it?
