FIRE & ICE | Red Hot Tones on a Frosty Day

Fire & Ice | Layering warm tones, orange, red and pink | Fake Fabulous

Baby, it's cold outside... or (much more likely to come out of my mouth) "Ye Gawds it's Baltic!"
I love crisp and sunny winter days.
The light is SO beautiful.

With the cold crispness comes the urge to wear roasty-toasty clothes but I don't always want to look (and feel) bulky or 'wrapped up'.

For me, the best way to get a warm feeling is to mix some traditionally HOT colours together.
Reds, Pinks and Oranges are perfect.

This outfit is all about the "fiyah"🔥 ... and the secret thermal layers!!

Does Loving Shoes Make Me Shallow? #fakeituntilyoumakeit LINK UP


It may come as no surprise to you when I say that I LOVE shoes!
I'm not going to try and deny it.
I'm certainly not ashamed of it.

I could look at shoes all day long.
I could talk about them for hours.

BUT... does the fact I love to talk about shoes (and clothes) make me stupid?

Many people (usually those who don't really 'get' fashion) think clothes, shoes and fashion fripperies are utterly pointless.

Bloggers are narcissistic oddballs.
Fashion lovers are as deep as a puddle.
Women (and men) who like to wear makeup are fake, airheads and bimbos.

I'm not ready to be Frumpy! Breaking colour Rules | Blue & Green

Mixing Blue & Green | Breaking Colour Rules | Fake Fabulous

I'm starting my 2018 posts in earnest this week (Hogmanay recovery over!) and I plan to be breaking a few (more) fashion rules this year.

Last year I was getting a little fed up with being force-fed the 'age appropriate' frump factor.
Companies, brands and media letting me know that now I was in my 40's I should be buying their (frumpy and boring) clothes and stop making a show of myself in brightly coloured items from shops that are 'too young' for me.

Well, for 2018 I'm sticking two fingers up to those boring rules and plan to be mostly wearing MORE colour.
And hopefully being totally inappropriate to boot!

While flashing the flesh leaves me cold (literally!) I still plan to be sporting more unexpected shapes and putting together more interesting colour combinations.

Some outfits might work.
Some may not...
You can be the judge of that!

Wearing Vintage in a Modern Way | Blue & Pink | Ageless Style LINK UP

1950's Vintage Coat | Blue & Pink | Fake Fabulous

After a hectic Hogmanay celebration, I'm feeling recovered enough to write the first post of 2018.
Happy New Year to you all!

Apologies if you were looking for the #fakeituntilyoumakeit link up on Sunday but I was in full-on party mode and all blogging business was firmly on hold.
