S T Y L E | Jean Milburn made me do it

Hi I’m Tracey.

I’m not a stylist, scrolling through my Instagram you’ve probably realised this already ! Truth be known just like the contents of my head … I’m a little bit all over .

To be honest my style was probably ‘more me‘ before I joined Instagram . I have got a lot better over time but in the past I’d find myself scrolling , bombarded with and drawn to ALOT of looks … I’d like ALOT of those looks but not all of them liked me back. I got carried away, confused what suited me – tried to be something Im not. I’ve bought things in the past I’d never dream of wearing , things I’ve worn maybe once. Some items scream … what the hell where you thinking?

Instagram made me do it!

There I said it …

Saying all that I have recently been inspired by somebody else’s wardrobe. They are not on Instagram, this time they are over on Netflix . . .

STYLE | the LBD

Contains gifted items , affiliated links marked * and a special guest – my dad

Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don’t bother you  – don’t bother me.” – Yohji Yamamoto

Black … one of my favourites.

Black Magic … delicious.

Black … the colour associated with death , with mortality and creatures of the night.

Black is black – I want my baby back ! [ if you know you know ]

Black … kohl pencil smudged into your water line to create a smokey eye. If it’s good enough for Kate Moss then count me in!

Amy Winehouse sang about it in her hit ‘Back to Black ‘ and chances are I’m guessing you have a little black dress , otherwise known as your LBD, lurking somewhere in your wardrobe.

My mum instilled it into me from an early age that it was something I should have in mine.

A wardrobe basic.

Hello new bathroom and a what’s on my shelves

[Contains gifted items and affiliated links marked *]

We’ve given our bathroom a little make-over and today I thought I’d introduce you.

I say ‘we’ … to be honest apart from complain about the dust , make tea and choose the fabulous toilet seat I didn’t actually do that much . That was all down to my brother and boyfriend who designed and fitted it using [mostly] bits of stuff we had laying around the house / in the metal factory.

I also thought I would incorporate a what’s on my bathroom shelves , so you can have a nosey at the products I use on a regular basis…

So what do you think?
