J Touch of Style. Jodie, a former dentist, showcases outfits for three age groups and features as models herself (50s), her step mother Nancy (60s) and her mother Charlotte (70s). The great thing about her blog is that the trio are constantly shopping their closet: finding new ways to wear clothes and adding unique little touches in the form of brooches and other jewellery, belts and so on.

Surely, I rationalized, feet are our one true friend in that they stay the same size all our lives?
Well, I've been boning up on feet (sorry!) and it seems my ideas were all wrong.

Part 1 of a new series on PerfumeThe Perfume Society is keen to learn how we store our precious scents. On an art deco dressing table, perhaps? Or on a trolley, or in a glass cupboard? My solution is less prosaic: in a large shoe box under the bed.
Unusually for me, I have not been a great keeper of perfumes. It's a fairly recent development that I kept both the scent (even if I had stopped liking it) and the box.

The "Must Have" tool to sort out those pesky facial hair issuesHands up if you've ever wished there was an easy way of dealing with "peach fuzz", that undesirable aura of fine down that grows over our cheeks and along the jawbone. Most of the time it's just there and not causing a problem, but sometimes in bright sunshine it's very obvious.
Then there's hair above the lip.....and hairs in the sideburns area that look untidy when you want to put your hair up.

Embroidered denim is having a moment, as is double denim. Fearing that I might look like a country and western singer, or at worse, a bit mutton, I thought I'd give it a go. The pretty embroidered jeans are from Marks and Spencer and already sold out, although there's a similar pair here. I wore the jeans first with a statement sleeve jumper from Lost Ink.

I had my colors analysed in the 1980s as a journalist writing about this new phenomenon and I was proclaimed a Spring who could also wear some winter colors.

The SIA Challenge is a fun opportunity to match an outfit to a famous painting, open to anyone. This time it's based on US artist Georgia O'Keefe's "Pond in the Woods" and curated by Erin from Loop Looks.
Here's the painting, from 1922:

I don't really do lace. But one of the things I'm trying to do this year is break out of comfort zones and try new things.
I was attracted by the rigid lace edging of this navy Ted Baker top. It also comes in a pretty blush colour. I paired it with New Look white trousers and I'm happily choosing the shorter length lately, above the ankle, without my old qualms.
