These photos probably give you the best idea of how I like to have fun with a monochrome outfit. I’m a big subscriber to the idea that simple is best, but sometimes simple can be too much so and needs a little edge to make a standout difference. I wrote about FYI by Dani Read earlier in the year; she caught my eye with her brand statement ‘Women Are Weapons’TM. This leg harness goes perfectly with my high-waisted jeans from Urban Outfitters. I’m a total convert to the high waist since my thirties and even more so since seeing the wonderful post-Edwardian costumes on Downton Abbey. I wear these jeans endlessly – with a high heel and a high waist I find I look so tall – I love it!
These photos make me smile because they represent to me a change and a new time in my life. Now back in the UK after my adventures in the United States I’m taking stock, re-connecting with old friends, making new acquaintances and planning some exciting adventures for 2013. This weekend I head over to France to spend New Year’s Eve in Paris! A wonderful city of love and light, its elegance captured me completely the last time I was there. You can follow me on instagram and twitter for updates during my travels. Have a wonderful NYE and I’ll post my Paris photos very soon.
