Dear Donna, I'm really struggling to know what to wear for my work Christmas night out! Because of covid, I haven't had a chance to go for a night out with my colleagues before and I don't know what the vibe will be. We're going for dinner and drinks, nowhere particularly fancy. But I'm not big on nights out and…

If you don’t know what Met Gala is, it’s essentially a bunch of famous/rich people attending a fundraising gala, dressed in jaw-dropping outfits created by incredible fashion designers wanting to showcase some of their best pieces of work on the world stage. Usually held on the first Monday in May, this year’s event happened on the 13th of September at…

I’ve been banging on about body confidence and positivity the past few weeks and  I have realised just what an impact it has on us all. I always find this is the time of year that it hits us the most, the sun comes out and we get excited and dig out our summer clobber, then the weather drops a…

  Cast your mind back to around two years ago. It's a dull midweek morning and you're standing in front of your wardrobe thinking... what shall I wear to the office today? Various workplaces have different dress codes. If you worked in an environment where jeans n’ tees were the outfit of choice, then lucky you! Others did not fare…

Since I broke up with fast fashion, something I am still struggling with as the world reopens I have gone down the rabbit hole of selling my clothes online. In all honestly I could never be bothered before. When I decluttered I had tonnes of items and the idea of them lingering in my house for a moment longer made…

Despite ending 17 years ago (wowzers!), Sex and the City is still arguably one of the most fashionable shows of all time. Discovering SATC was a pivotal coming-of-age moment for millennial women. Although some of the dialogue and casting is dated, at the time it was revolutionary to see four independent women wearing fabulous clothes and having open conversations about…

I am not a fashion blogger, nor do I obsessively follow fashion magazines and influencers to keep abreast of the latest trends. If I go into a shop (because I’ve had too many bad experiences with online shopping) and I like something, I try it on and then I buy the item. It may therefore seem strange that my first…

Fashion. Being fashionable. Being adored by hundred of people on Instagram. That is not me. For a while, like every single person we try and be 'the popular girl' or 'the pretty girl' or 'the fashionable girl' and all of that wishing and starring at glossy magazines and spending hours learning new makeup styles and what's in style for the…

  Honestly, everywhere I looked I would always see 'spring capsule wardrobe' or 'work capsule wardrobe' and it would confuse me. Why would you choose to ignore half your wardrobe and focus on a few items for a season or occasion? Well I put it to the test. I recently started a shiny new job (woohoo) and with that I…

Can we talk about why I must resort to looking like the captain of a ship in nautical stripes or a throwback to the 60’s with teeny tiny ditsy florals just because I’m about to birth another human?     I’ve been wearing my normal clothes for as long as possible but even leggings are getting pinchy now and I…
