WIW: Sharp Shouldered & Suited

With lots of softness and a '70s flavour :)

  • Colour inspiration is from a dear client who was inspired by Trinny Woodall!
  • I wear my burgundy suit A LOT. In different ways. LOVE THE FIT AND QUALITY! Flared pants and shorter blazer = WINNER for me. I wish I had the same suit in a plaid or sour bright. 
  • Wear the suit to work with clients. It's a VERY easy and comfy outfit! 
  • 10 year old citron turtleneck. Not a hint of pilling! Wish J.Crew made things the way they used to......
  • I also wear the suit pants as separates. Perfect colour match with a '70s sharp shouldered pleather jacket that cost me $40 a few years ago, and the quality is superb! 
  • Wore the '70s jacket with the pants and citron support act to a fancier birthday party last week.
  • Wear my old citron cocoon coat over suits and jackets quite a bit. My favourite coat of all time! It's cold on foot outside and I need to wrap up! 
  • Citron Pom Pom crossbody because I must be hands-free, and I like to match.
  • White boots....well....because it's my thing....
  • Wavy hair doing its own soft thing. 
  • Sam and Jo always curious and close-by! 

Hubs Greg does NOT like puffy sleeves. If I showed him this '70s jacket off my body - he would have discouraged me from trying it. But as soon as I put it on - he loved it! Now I only show Greg puffy sleeved items ON MY BODY :)

Thanks for looking! xo

My Potentially Fab White Heels (Pics)

Heels are relative. This is the highest heel I can manage unless I'm seated :) 

Number one footwear need on my shopping list is a dressy white, off-white, or cream CLOSED-toe shoe to wear with dresses and skirts for Spring and Summer. It's a big hole. 

Must be pretty, refined, stable, secure, a good fit for my narrow feet, and above all VERY comfy. I live in the city and am on foot 99% of the time. I need to be able to walk Yorkies Sam and Jo, run errands, walk to appointments, walk to restaurants, and I walk fast. I also don't want to pay the earth for them. 


Tried and returned quite a bit. Tried a few pairs of slingbacks. Unstable and can't walk fast in them - (as I know from past experience but I tried again anyway. I am always trying, and trying hard!). The straps slide down the back. The shoes fall off my feet, unfortunately.

Unlike many, I enjoy a good Mary Jane. They work for my feet and style! To my eye, they are visually right on my shape feet. I got a suede toffee pair last year that are winners. After trying all sorts of other shoes that did not work, I ordered the same shoe in white. They have a dear little gold buckle: 


A VERY good fit. Sized up half a size because they are short, and I have long toes. 

I am walking around in them at home in my casual outfit with tiny in-house fashion stylist Jo. We are HOPING they pass the at home test. So far, so good. 

Fingers crossed! xo
