The Fashion Assassin

Fashion Assassin…

Firstly, I am not half naked, I am wearing shorts in this photo!

A few weeks ago I was tagged by @rubbishlondonbrand to check out a black owned business @day____dot – so here I am a few days later, wearing one of their amazing designs, complete with angel wing detail on the arms which I really love. The top is bigger than I would normally buy but I am loving all the extra room to chill out and be cosy either on the sofa or out on my walks.
When we reach 40, many women reach for the elasticated waist trousers and beige cardigans but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can still be fashionable and stylish if we make a bit of effort. I refer to myself as ‘the fashion assassin’ as I am useless at styling, normally opting for something practical like a T shirt, jeans and white sneakers.
If you need some inspiration and want someone cool to follow, check out @astridiwantyouinmylife who, quite honestly could make a carboard box and some duct tape look stunning! The pumpkin linen jeans she wore this week from @themakeshed are the perfect shade of orange to go with Astrid’s rather incredible tan. We’ve had a sunny start to the summer so it’s great to see everyone looking so healthy for a change.

So, my idea to help @day____dot grow their business, is to pass on this clothing to someone else to style better than me. Astrid, I will be passing the responsibility on to you… and then you can pass it on to someone else to do the same and so on…

I released a kid’s collection of T shirts in the early hours of this morning, complete with ‘Mukki Monsters’ straight out of my colourful imagination. I’m quite exhausted as my week has been crazy, but I can’t thank everyone enough for their support for my ocean clean project, with lots of T shirts on their way to Australia – how cool is that??!!!!

Lots more to do today, with cruelty free Friday on its way to you later today.

Have a super weekend!
