Fashion Monday #5

 Today was my last holiday before we close for Christmas. It has been a nightmare so this is not a chatty post but it is nevertheless a bit festive.

And the back! 
Gold boots from TKmaxx. This is my latest find!

Kora's Christmas sparkly pants!
A bit of sparkle can take you a long way and it doesn't have to be just for Christmas! Dress it down for everyday use and enjoy your clothes!

Fashion Monday #4

Hi there,
It feels like a lifetime since last Monday and loads of things have happened. My lovely friend Kora has announced that she is leaving us but she promised to mail me more of her photos from now on. So this is not the end of Kora at least not in this space!
Today at work we had a Yule log bake off so there was a lot of brown puddings about. So inspired by the festive pudding and in preparation of tonight's post I have collected photos in brown! These were some of the most interesting combinations.

Moi, in a tan leather skirt, a black top and a vest my grandma made when i was a kid!
Nice things keep forever! I love this little vest! I do have it since primary school so it is at least 25 years old but still going stronger!

I have posted this before but Zoe is lovely in another all brown combo tied together with black!
A more military black brown combo!

And lovely Elaine with a fab brown shimmery skirt.
It doesn't really matter how you tone a brown combination. All different shades of brown seems to go well as long as there is one neutral colour to bind them together. I don't know what it is with brown that makes it so interesting. It is the colour of chocolate i think!

Fashion Monday #3

Hello again!

this week we had a lot of meetings so there were a few dresses around. Here are the best!
Here is Kay in a lovely green dress and really fab boots. I like how green and brown go so well together. 

This is moi, in a two-colour outfit. It does help if you stick to two colours as it keeps the outfit looking smart without too much effort. The challenge is of course getting the colours right. But if one sticks to a few colours in their wardrobe they can get some pretty good results.
The easier way of doing "the two colour outfit" is using same colour tights. These are mine in navy blue.
Kora is doing the two-colour outfit here with a jumper and tights in exactly the same colour!

Zoe is really proud of this lovely necklace.  
Zoe is wearing a fab dress here in teal!
Like i said before a treasure is a treasure whether it costs £1000 or £10. It all depends how durable, wearable and likable an item is!
