Wardrobe Stories: Topshop blue

It was tricky to choose a second garment for my Wardrobe Stories series, but I figured it had to be something pre-loved. Something I'd fallen in love with on first sight but that had a previous owner. All of my clothing has stories attached to it, but I started this series as a way to... Continue Reading →

Wardrobe Stories: Erika

I found her in Beyond Retro on Great Marlborough Street, when I was looking for something to give me a 90s look for an event that I have long since forgotten the details of.

Feminism Friday: Fashionably Feminist?

I often wonder whether I wholeheartedly identify with the label "feminist". It's a tricky one as it means so many different things to so many different people and yet preconceived notions of angry man haters still abound.
