I still get sad when I reflect upon the horrible news of Dianna’s death. She like countless others was taken before her time.I personally felt like I had lost a friend and found it hard to comprehend that our princess had died.

From her wedding gown to her little black dresses, her style continues to inspire fashionistas today. Jane Allen Image Consultant www.styledge.com.au [email protected]

Winter Wardrobe Favourites

Winter Wardrobe Favourites

Have you got your winter wardrobe favorites ready? 1. There is nothing more stylish than a knee high boot. I live in mine and I love wearing them with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans.

What not to wear to a wedding

What not to wear to a wedding

I thought what not to wear to a wedding was a great topic for my blog when  royal fever hit me quite late in the piece but my eyes were glued to the TV on Friday night to watch the Royal Wedding. Will and Harry looking very handsome in uniform. Kate was exquisite wearing Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. So elegant and so now and almost a modern day version of Grace Kelly’s gown. And Pippa also looked so sleek in her bridesmaid dress. I loved it all. Most of all, I loved the fairy tale that made the world
