Here A Tassel, There A Tassel

Here A Tassel, There A Tassel


Do you love a tassel as much as I do?

Tassels and trimmings seem to have disappeared from interiors today; trends are crisper, simpler and if a detail is to be seen it’s more like a piping.

The Tuxedo: Still Borrowing From The Boys

The Tuxedo: Still Borrowing From The Boys

There is one other piece I borrow from the boys.

The tuxedo jacket.

For all the same reasons I find the suit a most brilliant of wardrobe pieces so is the tuxedo jacket.

It’s part of the same family but can stand alone; the tux is an ideal travelling companion and can take you pretty much anywhere you want to go.

It is an ageless, season-less and permanently in fashion piece.

My leopard pieces need an update and pronto.

Following An Impulse: Are You Guilty?

Following An Impulse: Are You Guilty?

Truthfully, I can say 99% of the time I am not an impulse shopper.

I find it never works out in anything other than returns for me, most of the time. I plan my wardrobe pieces; the additions and the replacements because, as I have grown wiser with fashion, I know it is best.

It is a practical approach to fashion but I don’t find it boring. I enjoy adapting what’s “in” to what I already have or finding that particular piece that will elevate my style but be true to me.

Shopping on impulse is generally about everything other than shopping. Well, that’s how it’s been for me.
