Shopping motto: Buying suitable items when I
happen across them, knowing they will fit into my
wardrobe for future use. Avoids last minute panic
buying for special occasions.
Dress etiquette? Always be on time for
Wardrobe friend? Most decidedly that L.B.N.
(Little black number)
Shoe, heel height? Sensible
Dress mistakes? Assuming
the hostess was honest when she said ‘come casual’.
How many hangers in your wardrobe? Enough.
Accessory friend? Dozens of pashminas in
every conceivable colour
Best asset? Not sure.
Lipstick? Colour? Brownish red or reddish
brown, depending on my mood
Handbag? What’s in it? Grooming accessories,
mobile phone, credit cards, photos of our sons,
compulsory driver’s licence (I’m always in the car
driving to appointments)
Week-end friend? We own a game farm, so my
weekend style revolves around the khaki/bush theme,
A second hand item? Louis Vuitton handbag
bought from the owner of a cheese restaurant in
Gruyere (Switzerland) of all places.
Most expensive item, ever? Bubble skirted
O.T.T. evening creation by a well-known couturier.
Could only be worn twice during one season only,
whilst in style.
Chunky beaded necklaces. In all colours.
Best investment? Large black leather handbag
bought in Rome. Comfortably holds all the items, and
more, in 10 above.
Dress secret? Don’t buy an impulsive
something that does not fit into your wardrobe
colour scheme. (see 13)
Your husband’s thoughts on your wardrobe? He
is very comfortable with the classical styles I
wear, think of your dress standard: and
is especially delighted if in his favourite colour
…and your thoughts on his? He very sweetly
always ask me for my opinion.
Definition of style? Comes from within and
should exude confidence which is gained by wearing
beautiful garments that are timelessly elegant, well
designed, immaculately made, and complement your
figure and age.
Describe today’s fashion? Pleased to see
more skirts around, floral frocks for summer and men
finding it ‘cool’ to wear silk ties again
