2017 so far has made me think about what's important; what really doesn't matter and should be put aside. So I've been clearing my way gradually through cupboards, wardrobes and drawers. More than ever I've been wondering what on earth possesses me when I'm shopping... and how I've missed this when I've been tidying up before.
For fear of judgement from others, older women tend to play it safe fashion-wise, sticking to a handful of brands that we see our peers wearing and giving up on anything that we perceive to represent 'young fashion'. In truth, many women my age feel that they've lost the right to wear what they want. But, as I've said many times before, and will continue to do so - fashion is ageless!
This series was a complete dream as I got to dive head first into the most exquisite, diverse and compelling wardrobe you've set eyes on. Interviewing designers, collectors, bloggers, fanatics and shoppers, as well as trying on some of the most divine pieces out there. I delved, I learned and I may have done a bit of shopping along the way. I mean... what did you expect? I hope you enjoy this series as much as i did making it.
Don't be fooled by the mild autumn. Winter is coming. Which means you need a wardrobe overhaul, to counter rougher weather and fashion's fickleness, the usual suspects return to your wardrobe: a warmer coat, blazer, warm shoes. The chill brings a new world of layering that is, arguably, better looking than our summer lovin' months
