It feels a bit odd talking about what to wear for spring and how to transition from a winter wardrobe to a spring one when it’s the 19th of March and there is still snow settled on the ground in London. If I looked out of my window this morning, I would have thought that it was bang smack in the middle of winter.

Remember Pam hated Jim Morrison’s leather trousers, but can you imagine him in denim? Yes, women uniformly hate corduroy, but wearing corduroy isn't a fashion faux pas. Far from it. Capiche? I want to share some insights and fashion faux pas that you might not be aware you’re making, that she is definitely noticing. This advice is based on personal experience and a few hours gathering data through comment feeds on similar articles.
One day when my poor archivist will endure the laborious task of trawling through my scribbles, they'll find two consistent themes. 1. He talks about his dog a lot. 2. He talks about eyewear equally so, if not more than. Today I'm going to talk about my recent trial of The Alpha Collection from Austrian eyewear brand Silhouette, the lightest eyewear in the world.
I’ve stayed in a few places a little or quite a long way out of town recently so, in the name of change, this time I went right to and stayed right in the hub of the city.
