new year (wardrobe) resolutions 2022

When I do wardrobe consultations (on-line and at a client’s home), I encourage them to really evaluate what’s in their wardrobe.  How do the contents of their wardrobe relate to their current lifestyle?  What are their habits, what are they actually wearing, and how do they care for their clothes?

Saturday Style by Anita – lightweight jumpers

There was a time when I would never recommend Boden to my clients, as their distinct prints were so recognisably Boden and I felt they didn’t have longevity. However, Boden are celebrating their 30th birthday, and their shopping edit is lovely. As a brand they have come a long way — think chic wardrobe essentials with a pop of colour. I LOVE some of their pieces and they will be treasured items in my wardrobe. And…there’s 30% until the end of today, so be quick!

what to pack for a mini break

I did a lot of travelling as part of my job as a clothing buyer and I always tried to pack light so I didn’t need to check my luggage into the hold.  Most women return from holiday with clothes they haven’t worn, and with airlines today charging more and more for checked-in luggage, learning to pack light is a valuable skill.  And just think of the time you will save when you arrive at your destination with hand luggage only.

Animal Print – chic or cliché?

This season I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect animal-print dress. It’s fair to say I was a late adopter of animal print; I purchased my first item in my late forties and now own several in various permutations.  I love wearing them – just not all at once!

It’s a look and a trend that’s easy to get wrong … and we don’t want to give animal print a bad reputation (think pub landlady Pat Butcher or Kat Slater). Here are my top tips for nailing prints from leopard to tiger, cheetah to zebra, so you look like you’ve stepped off the catwalk rather than out from behind the bar.
