Bright old things2

I have really enjoyed the Selfridges “Bright Old Things” campaign, which was a twist on their annual “Bright Young Things” exhibit. The window displays  (which I think I saw them taking down the other evening when I went past on the bus) were mesmerising, the stuff was all awesome and I loved the reminder that something doesn’t need to be designed by a young “up and comer” to be innovative, exciting, fresh and cool!

Also, this is now my life motto:

I also liked the casual and proud use of the word “old”, showing us that it’s not an insult or something to be feared and avoided.

(A reminder I actually really needed as – at the grand old age of 28 – my friends and I spend an inordinate amount of time panicking about our encroaching agedness/any visible signs of ageing. I think some grip-getting may be necessary!)


Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! And to stave off the horror of turning the ripe old age of 27 I am wearing:

-A tiara. Obvs. (Although technically I am not wearing it today as I am at work and, allegedly, a grown-up. I did wear it all weekend though :-D)

-My BCBGeneration bracelet (previously seen here)

-A very bright pink shirt (no one’s ignoring me today) from Express in New York, which was an amazing shop with H&M-esque prices (and everything was 40% off the day I went so I bought a million things!)

-My trusty M&S treggings

-My short-sleeved Monsoon jumper which I like to think adds a dash of Clueless to all my shirts

-A gold leafy hairband that I got for my birthday (which arrived with a big sign on top telling me that I’m going to see Beyonce in March! Woo, thanks guys! It later transpired that my genius friend had accidently cut said sign out of what she thought was a scrap envelope but turned out to contain her brother’s university degree! Oops.)

-My new glittery shoes from Office that I bought in the boxing day sales

-Mid-life crisis: model’s own


Hope you all have as great a day as I intend to!



The (Ageing) Styletterie


……….you see bindis for sale in Urban Outfitters and combination skirt/trousers in River Island and you wore them the first time they were fashionable when you were 13 years old and you thought that bindis went about 2 inches higher than they’re actually meant to go and that powder blue and stretchy were good things for trousers to be:


“Do you prefer fashion victim or ensembly challenged?”

Oh, the memories……
