Fashion rules that really should be broken

There was a time that horizontal stripes really scared me. I thought they would make me look short and fat. Then I discovered something. It's not true! Well, sometimes it might be, but get the cut right and a stripe dress can be super cute. Like this hand-painted strip number by Milk from a Thistle. Try it on and be pleasantly surprised.

A worthy investment

Homewares are so much fun to buy. They always fit. You can experiment with sizes, shapes and colors minus the risk of looking inappropriate/tragic. And they provide you with something pretty to look at when you're feeling a little down in the dumps. We love these Samantha Robinson ceramics. Gorgeous!

A new dress is the best medicine

Yes! You can wear this now. With tights and a jacket. No need to wait for Spring weather to ditch the winter clothes you are no doubt utterly SICK AND TIRED OF WEARING every SINGLE DAY even though it is the middle of September.

Ah. Feels good to get that off my chest...

Bring on the dancing horses

Sometimes, when I'm feeling all nostalgic or a little bit soppy I listen to the Pretty in Pink soundtrack and it takes me back to a time when life was simpler, when VWs were lolly pink and boys did Otis Redding tributes in record shops that sold VINYL because there was no such thing as an iPod.

The dancing horses track is, admittedly, one of the weaker on the album, but I still love those stallions. Especially on a dress. And don't you think it would be kind of cute to wear this to the races? We do.
