Slow fashion versus fast fashion…it’s always got me thinking. Im the first to admit that in my 20’s I used to spend all my wages on the latest and greatest, I didn’t know any better. I just knew that the bright lights, pumping beats and the beckoning of all those ‘beautiful’ new clothes made me want to buy, so I did.

It’s a cruel summer here in Sydney at present so garments that are lightweight and breathable are the choice du jour.

Thinner By Dinner

January 31st, 2017

It’s a new season for my friends at Ch9’s TODAY extra and I’m thrilled to be a part of the line up. Together with Salvos stores, we have the pleasure of inspiring real women get their mojo back in eco chic segments on the show. This is beautiful Marilyn and she’s 67, by her own admission she has developed a few ‘festive curves’ over the holidays and wanted some help dressing her new shape while she gets back to the exercise. The mid section can be a tricky spot for us ladies as we age,…
