The allure of black

Do not be swayed by black.  It says it will offer you sophistication, a slim-line you, grace, elegance and power.  If it fails on this level it will offer you ease; ‘everything goes with black’ it will say.


In actual fact very few people can wear black near the face.  More often than not wearing black swamps the complexion adding years to your face.  It is a very unforgiving shade. Do not be taken in by the allure of black.

It may be that you need to discover your ‘new black’, be it dark navy, French navy, chocolate brown, charcoal grey.  The list goes on.

Toast in the morning

I really love the Toast summer shades this year, particularly the cobalt blue.  I am trying to decide between two dresses, the Breton striped dress and the Esther dress.  I am a ‘ clear’ colour type so both dresses suit as they are bright and show contrasting colours, but which one do I choose! Help.

Well, I like them both; my expression is a give-away!

I can wear the Esther red dress with my orange suede heels or my all time favourite black woolly tights and black lace-ups. But I adore stripes.I will sleep on it.
