Well done on raising so many thousands of £s auctioning the controversial one shoulder dress for your charity @girlguiding as a result of - wearing a dress that had slipped off the shoulder and was deemed inapropriate in the House of Commons. .
It's easy to have clothing malfunctions and indeed my own @zara top in the photo can be worn in all ways - exposing shoulders or not.
.
Women are continuously judged and often more harshly by other women than by men. .
My lifestyle consultancy takes me into organisations where women prefer to often dress androgynously- in trousers- in black- to not be noticed for what they wear- but only for the excellent job they do.
.
I also speak in schools- where teenage girls feel the need to look perfect- especially on their social media- affecting their mental health.
.
I hope my own social media feed, that is never filtered,  inspires and can show women - young and old - that we can all be individual. Embracing our quirks and flaws make each of us unique and special.  No celebrity I have ever dressed had a perfect body or flawless face in my past 30 year career as a celebrity stylist. .
We shouldn't be afraid to wear what we feel comfortable in- however- if we work in an organisation and are customer facing,  then we are the face of the brand and should dress accordingly. .
Be true to yourself, don't compare and don't let the judgement of others break you. .

What do you wear when you’re off to dinner at a cool London restaurant on a first date?

What do you wear when you're off to dinner at a cool London restaurant on a first date? .
In my case.... Zara jacket ( last season)
Leather-look jeans ( current season Zara) 
Black patent stiletto boots. ( vintage) .
In my opinion first date clothes should appear understated and thrown together stylishly.
Like you made an effort to look nice but didn't try too hard. 
Never lots of cleavage and lots of leg together-only one or the other. .
I like to dress age appropriately , never the mutton dressed as lamb, but I do still like to wear clothes with an edge.
As I am age 60+ my skirts or dresses aren't ever shorter than knee length and only a glimpse of cleavage not too much.
.
Not everything on show.
Less is always more. 
However shoes can definitely always be sexy whatever your age.
.
Dress to suit your body shape and size, and create optical illusions to flatter your best bits and detract from your least favourite bits. .
I always want my clients to feel confident and love themselves when they look in the mirror. .
It's the whole of you that's attractive -your personality, your confidence and your body language. .
No one is judging you in real life. . 
Be positive and dress to impress.
First impressions count.

Throwback to me in a Halloween party costume a hundred years ago

Throwback to me in a Halloween party costume a hundred years ago. Maybe I was around age 26.....
.
Think the dress code may have been tarts and vicars! 
I'm obviously not the vicar.
