|Aspire to Audrey ...|
It's not so much that I have purposefully neglected you it's just that it has been such a busy month. So busy that I find myself a whole month late with my previously promised Style Month.
And so as they say 'there's no time like the present'. It starts today - a full month of Personal Style fabulousness, inspiration, musings, tips, advice and hopefully some fun.
First of all here's what I believe.
Every day could be, SHOULD BE, a stylish one.
(ok, so I admit we all need a slovenly day off or too)
THE WAY YOU PRESENT YOURSELF
IS A SIGNAL AS TO HOW OTHERS SHOULD TREAT YOU.
My Top Tips For Success. You should wear clothes and exude a personal style that:...
1) Accentuates YOU & YOUR assets - your colouring and your silhouette (not Audrey Hepburn's or Beyonce's).
2) Is Appropriate - by that I don't mean safe. No, what I mean is that you choose a style that reflects your lifestyle or the occasion or changes you want to make - whether that be professional, casual and relaxed or formal - or a mix of all three.

but with very different takes on style. Which are you?
4) Looks Current. Honestly, nothing ages you more than clothes that have been put together in such a way that they look a decade out of fashion. Likewise nothing ages a woman more than having NO STYLE - think scruffy joggers when you're not at the gym. Of course there are some high fashion hits that come and go every year but trends tend to stay around for at least half a decade or so- think Nude Shoes for example.

Why don't I own a pair yet?
The Stylish lady understands trends and may use high fashion to add fun and personality to her wardrobe. Again this does not mean you can't have 10 year old items in your wardrobe; heavens I have a skirt that is 20 years old this week and I still love it but it does mean take care that your styling isn't out of date or if a fan of specific styling (vintage, pin up, 1920's etc) take care you don't look as if you are in fancy dress.
With that in mind here's to a month of all things STYLE.
