Day 51: Friday 19 June

You have probably noticed that I am a leading fashion icon. And that I pay close attention to fashion gossip and trends. However I hate it when fashionistas tell you what to wear and how to wear it, especially when it comes to denim…

The trusty denim jacket really does suit everyone. However, emphasis should be placed on styling. Worn with of-the-moment items such as the jumpsuit or harem pant it will add to your kudos. But remember the golden rule: head-to-toe denim is never a good look. Feel free, however, to add badges, buttons and embellishments to give it your own unique spin…. this quote is taken from the fashion police over at

How DARE they diss the head-to-toe denim look! Obviously the writer is spending too much time looking in the mirror and not enough time looking at this blog!

Another one of my pet hates is the phrase “Mutton dressed as lamb”.  Since when are you too old to wear what you like???? Tell Vivienne Westwood she’s mutton.  I thinks she’s ace!

Most people just go with the flow when it comes to clothes. They don’t want to stick out, look different, be noticed. They want to look a little bit fashionable, but not so fashionable people will laugh. They want to look handsome, pretty, well groomed, stylish, elegant. Or they dress like their friends and peers so you can’t tell them apart from each other.

I find shopping distressing. You go into a clothing ’boutique’ and there are rows of exactly the same clothes. How depressing.

If I wander into one of Sydney’s charity shops it’s viva la difference! No 2 items alike, although some shops are starting to get clogged with Target, Now and Miller brands).

So finally, here’s today’s glamorous, stylish, elegant, denim ensemble, brought to you by Australia’s finest charity shops.

Dissing double denim makes me mad
