So, when it comes to fashion I pretty much have always had a sense of who I am and what I like. I sorta always just accepted my eccentricity, my innate desire for vibrancy and the escape that fantasy provides. My eclectic mix of styles, periods, colour and texture follow no real rules just instinct. Maybe I was just born with this confidence, maybe it exists within most children and I just haven’t evolved into your typical ‘adult’ sense of style or maybe it was as simple as
It’s been just over a decade since I was last a bride … and if I were to do it again, which I have no intention of doing might I add, I would definitely rock this modernised Retro Raani inspired look that I pulled together on a whim as I do most things. This might very well be the year that many of you might be getting married so here are some of my top tips to looking like a million bucks without blowing the bank.

OMG we are so in the swing of the silly season, so best I take a deep breath and remind myself not to sweat the small stuff.

Well, Hello LADIES…It’s me and I am back…Yeah I’m bringing classy back. Right so it’s been a month since I came out of the proverbial “closet” or well launched my blog-baby.
