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.

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.
