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.

Age is just a number!

Age is just a number!

Here is my 96 year old auntie,
me age 64, 
and @misslucy_lou The Westie x Bichon dog. .
Women of all ages can still be naturally beautiful, with no filters applied to enhance or manipulate.
.
Beauty comes from within and shines out when you're happy in your own skin, together with confidence, positivity and positive body language. .
Being fake isn't beautiful.
Being real is. 
Be the best you can be in your real life.
.
Love yourself and believe you are worth it.
.
Embrace all life has to offer and grab it with both hands and be grateful for everything you have. My 96 year old auntie does and is the funniest and most irreverent person I know.
And she still likes to dress stylishly and glamorously whenever she goes out, always with makeup and definitely lipstick.

To outside the Jean Machine on London's Kings road circa 1970.

Note the 70s fashions of: 
Big collar
Patchwork denim shirt
Denim on denim
Cowboy belt
Chunky silver bracelet
Bellbottom jeans
Platform boots .
And... what was I thinking about? ( my facial expression is a picture in itself)! Or ...
What was I waiting for? 
Think I was working there as my out of school Saturday job at the time.
Your thoughts? .
