same genes, different style

My worst kept secret

Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a new clothing line? And to make it even better, every time you wear one of their pieces, someone asks you where you got it from. That’s what’s happening since I bought a few items from […]

Look what I found!

Do you ever buy something that sits in your wardrobe for ages then suddenly you are totally inspired and decide it goes with everything you’re wearing right now? Well that has just happened to me. I have had this cape jacket from Jameela Jamil‘s collection […]

Casual or Smart?

I fell in love with this OneOneThree skirt months ago, and finally I own it! I bought it to wear it casual with trainers and t-shirts but the day it arrived I was heading out and I just had to wear it! So, I hauled through my wardrobe to see what would match up and decided on this cold shoulder bodysuit with a cute ruffle right the way around the neckline and wrap up shoes, both from ASOS. To complete the look the other half had surprised me with a pack of ten different style chokers that were from on offer on Groupon and I decided a plain tie design went perfect with the shoes. When I get around to wearing it casually I’ll post a photo. 

What shall I wear……to a wedding?

So, for my second style advice post, Wendy Evans got in touch and asked for some help. She needs some suggestions as she has a wedding at the end of next month. The wedding is in a church then in a country house so she is looking […]

The Dress

It’s all done! And it is fabulous! The dress is complete! And I have to say, all of Kellie-Anne’s hard work has paid off because I love it. Now, I just need a special occasion to wear it 🙂

Please Miss, can I have some more?

I love my skirt! It’s the first time I have ever had anything made specifically for me and it’s great owning something that you know no-one else will have. It’s made me greedy – I want more!

So I rang Kellie-Anne up and asked if she would be free to make me a few pieces for my summer holidays – luckily for me, she jumped at the chance – woohoo!

We arranged a meeting and in preparation, I collected a tonne of magazines and started whittling down a short-list of clothes I liked so that we could discuss some options. We decided on 3 key pieces – a maxi dress (we called it the dress!), a short beach dress and a swing dress for a night out on my Ibiza trip. I was landed!

We decided to start with the dress – it was the one both of us were the most excited for, and off Kellie-Anne went to find the fabric and draw up the pattern. Take a look at her progress so far.

I have had the final fitting so fingers crossed it wont be long before I can model it for you! 

The Skirt!

I told you you wouldn’t have to wait long! Kellie-Anne is a fast worker and the skirt she promised me is all done and ready to wear. After a couple of meetings to sort the fabric print and a few fittings, the skirt it ready to […]

It begins with a skirt

A brilliant thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I was in work in the coffee shop (surprise surprise!) and saw a student who had the most gorgeous skirt on. Being a nosey so and so I asked her where she had it […]

Bikini Bod!

It’s an  exciting day in the Roberts household today – our summer holiday is all booked!

Sinking feeling! I am far from owning a bikini bod – and alas, truth be known I know I never will be! Not to panic, I have a solution – this gorgeous Curvy Kate Pink Starry Eyed Bikini Top and briefs from Evans.


The top offers full support for when I am jumping around the pool playing water polo (ahem ok popping back and forth to the bar!) and the bottoms cover all those really squidgy parts without making you look like you’re wearing your Nan’s knickers.

Next step – the hunt is on for more………


Spring has Sprung

It’s fast approaching the end of March and the clocks spring forward this weekend marking the start of spring and summer. That can mean only one thing in my house – time for a little shopping spree (anyone that knows me knows I need no […]
