What does a girl do when still wearing flats and no makeup?
You go to Peter Jones and do a whole makeup on the Laura Mercier counter with their testers and buy a pair of heels on sale reduced from £90 to £45. 
Result! .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London


Excited for the press preview of Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A. . . . . .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair. Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London.

Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…


Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Even after a leg amputation Frida remained true to her own unique personal style customising her prosthetic leg with a stylish  decorated boot.

1933 Self-portrait Frida Kahlo exhibition Making herself up @vamuseum London. Frida's mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time. She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon '"everything's rosy" lipstick  and red nail varnish.

Some of Frida Kahlo’s dresses. What can I say but how fabulous!

Loving my new stylish Tulip kitchen chairs

Loving my new stylish Tulip kitchen chairs.

Thank you @pashclassics for getting them to me in less than 12 hours!
They finish off the 50's style vibe in this kitchen corner.
Spot @misslucy_lou the bichon/westie cross on her bed in the corner. 
She always wants involved and to be in the picture.
The fuschia coloured Sweet Peas and beautiful Peonies are all from my Isle of Wight garden.
The orange Tulips are silk fakes. 
I often mix real flowers with fake when interior styling or staging a property.

Today I'm wearing.... Linen wide legged trousers from M&S sale last year ( think they were 70% off) and Zara floral top and Gucci belt.
I like to mix my High st bargains with the occasional Designer item.

This month’s haircut with @andyatagency Thank you as always

This month's haircut with @andyatagency Thank you as always.

Andy delivers the best haircuts that flatter your faceshape and work best for whatever hair type you have.
My hair is so fine but he makes it appear thick and with graduation to make the cut more interesting and edgy.
He always does a fabulous job and also does a great selfie...

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial. "Act the age you feel" is the look on the left and
"No olds barred" on the right.
When you reach age 50 and beyond don't become invisible by dressing to fade into the background.
Be bold with colour and design but always dress to flatter your bodyshape.
