Sista hood.

I blimin' well love being surrounded by women. Older women who share life lessons; younger women full of spark and determination; women who make me scream with laughter; women who show kindness; who show true friendship and women who don't give a flying fig. Here's to International Women's Day and here's to wearing yellow socks with open-toed sandals.

Fashion note: oh how I love this parka, with it's continuous zip, slouchy vibe and nod to its mod roots. Styled with metallics I've taken it into another direction, showing that luxe can be daytime, keeping nails and makeup neutral for balance and non matchy-matchy earrings. Give it a go sistas.
