Thinking capsule!

I've been doing a lot of updating to the Wardrobe Makeover section just recently and really getting my head into gear about Capsule Wardrobes. It might sound a strange time of the year but, in between seasons, is the best time to look ahead. Paris in Springtime! I know that because I'm just about to go on holiday and should know by now that, for summer clothes, we really need to shop in March! Fortunately I needed very little and, as holiday clothes get so little wear anyway, it wasn't necessary to break the bank!

Wardrobe essentials, however, deserve your the time and effort you put into the planning and shopping to make sure they will earn their keep. Everyone's lifestyle is different so think ahead and decide on your Essentials! French Fashion Style.

Have you got a favorite Online Shop?

It only takes one shopping trip for me to realize how much I'm beginning to rely on online shopping. With my feet up I can browse and be inspired! Check the sizings carefully of course and don't leave it 'til the last minute because popular styles will sell out early just like the stores - and everything won't live up to expectations. Kettlewell Colors If you've got your own Color Swatch you'll know how difficult it is to find anything that resembles the colors that you're told will make you look amazing! Fortunately, Kettlewell Colours does just that - a beautiful range of jersey separates made in all the fabulous colors you've been looking for.

But I'd like to feature more!

On a personal note...

Now you know I'm not an advocate of dieting, far more interested in encouraging you to be happy just as you are. But sadly my clothes were 'shrinking'! So I joined Slimming World and lost 6lbs in 5 weeks - not earth shattering but what a difference for a small effort. Not only do my clothes fit me again but it's given me that boost of confidence I'm always on about! There's a free 7 day plan on the website at

Just need a quick fix? then it's easy to dress to look slimmer.
