Ankle surgery and the such can do that to a girl… I have had to wear things that are suitable to wear over a plaster cast and then things that can be worn within a moon boot (you can see one of my outfits including the boot here.) I have also been totally inactive thanks to being ‘non weight bearing’ on my right foot. This has meant hour upon hour of {Read More}

The Panel: Does Your Husband Give You Fashion Advice?

This week, I asked my ‘Panel’ if their husbands/partners/cats gave them fashion advice? If yes, did they love or loathe it? If not, did they love or loathe it?

Mr Cool has very good taste in clothes, so {Read More}
