@tracybrabinmp shadow culture MP

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. .

Sometimes it’s a specs day

If you wear contact lenses it’s good to give your eyes a rest some days. Especially if you get dry eyes as you get older.

I’ve worn contacts since the age of 12. Until recently no one ever saw me in specs. The contacts were straight in first thing in the morning and removed last thing at night.
I felt ‘less than’ in my specs- not confident, not sexy – not me. Now I feel I can embrace wearing glasses and have all sorts of styles, shapes and colours.
My specs have become an additional fashion accessory- to embrace wearing- not an embarrassing encumbrance.

Happy Chinese New Year The Year of the Rat

“Gong hei fat choy” in Chinese translates to:
“Wishing you great happiness and prosperity.”

Wearing the colour red symbolises luck, joy, vitality, celebration and good fortune in Chinese culture.

May all your wishes, hopes and dreams come true for you this new year.

A lasting close friendship of over 30 years is one where you don’t see each other for months, often even years, and then pick up again as though no time has passed at all

With my fave photographer friend, @nickyjohnston having the best Indian dinner at the new restaurant 1947, London.

It’s definitely not the same price or the same food as your local ordinary Indian takeaway – It’s an out of the ordinary special treat night out.

Chilling with @missmollysmusings After a Qi Gong class

Qi Gong is a centuries-old Chinese mind-body spirit practice that can improve mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement and breathing.

I like to vary the types of exercise I do, from the meditative to the body-aligning and strengthening to the aerobic.
