So, Wednesdays will feature me, in some clothes, from my wardrobe, hence ‘Wednesday in my Wardrobe‘! This is the first, and this outfit is kind of what I wear a lot. It sort of defines my style. Eclectic? Messy? Mis-matched? Colourful? All of those things! I was a Fashion Editor for years, and styled hundreds of shoots. Dressing skinny models in the pick of the high street and designers clothes is brilliant fun, but I am most at home rummaging in a charity or a vintage shop, and then creating some ensemble to see me through the day or night! Fashion is fun! Have fun with it!
I have never been one to conform with clothes. I’m 40, but there’s nothing I hate more than those fashion features in magazines telling you what to wear at what age. Er, Zandra Rhodes anyone? People like her, and Iris Apfel – an amazing, stylish, colourful 90-year old from New York – are my style icons. You will never see me in a little dress, accessorised with a belt, fake tan, big hair and ‘killer heels’. It’s not me, and, in my opinion, it’s NOT style.
So, do you want to know what I am wearing? Well, I’m going to tell you anyway!
