#4: What To Wear To…The Supermarket

#4: What To Wear To…The Supermarket

I don’t know about you but I like to be really comfortable when I go food shopping. I like going food shopping at the weekend which usually involves casual-wear with fun elements because you should always enjoy the clothes you wear. And you can’t wear what you really want to wear to work unfortunately (well … Continue reading

#4 BEST IN SHOW: The Daily Grind

#4 BEST IN SHOW: The Daily Grind

A quick update on the audition I went to on Saturday. Well, I did it, so I’m glad. The majority of people who were auditioning around the same time were over 50 which I wasn’t expecting. I wasn’t very nervous in the end but I did mix my lines up a bit, but I wrote … Continue reading

#3 How To Dress Like…Lisbeth Salander

#3 How To Dress Like…Lisbeth Salander

You don’t need to be a moody, motorbike-riding, leather-clad, bi(pan?)sexual to solve crimes, but it helps.   The Lisbeth Salander look is dark, androgynous, practical and grungy. And effortlessly “cool”. (Although I’m not saying her unhappy childhood/life/drugs/abuse/fraud/any of the above/ohemgee what have I started is by any means “cool”. I am just concentrating on her fashion/clothes, … Continue reading

It’s a survey unit and the survey came … Continue reading

If you think you might be getting lucky for the very first time with someone I’d recommend these…   They are cotten spandex jersey boy briefs from American Apparel (£9). It works. You could check out the “unisex” ones as well but these are definitely my personal favourites.

#3 Best In Show: Hats

  1) Grey Triangle Fairisle Beanie. £6 (Was £12) Topman. By now, it probably seems like I’m obsessed with Topshop/Topman or something. I’m not. It is just a good place to start because it is accessible to most people as a place to shop and I like to put stuff on here that is available … Continue reading

#2 How To Dress Like…Duckie Dale

#2 How To Dress Like…Duckie Dale

  Duckie Dale quickly became one of my style heroes when I first laid eyes on him in Pretty In Pink. I wanted to be him. I wanted his clothes, and when he dances and lip-syncs to Ottis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness” the deal was sealed. His style is pretty much: wear all your … Continue reading
