Girl crush and thoughts on style
I've developed a bit of a girl crush on this fabulous lady.
It's singer, Adele, in case you haven't heard of her, and you'd probably have to be living under a rock to not have by now!! (I'm just saying...)
Not only does she have THE most amazing voice she has this incredible sense of style and presence that belies her 23 years.
Take a few minutes to watch this and you'll see what I mean...
This young lady, well, little more than a girl really, has a signature style that makes her look as though she has been plucked out of 1950's London and dropped down behind a microphone in 2011.
She's all sultry eyes, sweeping capes with big collars, simple shapes and swept up hair.
And I envy her....
I've never been someone with an inherent sense of style, who knows what looks good with what, or who can pull off something a little different.
Where does that come from?
This lady has it too - in fact she reminds me very much of Adele, if a slightly older version (that's not too offensive is it Ingrid!!??).
She could wear a paper bag, add a cute little brooch and it would still look great.
So what about you??
Do you have a signature style?? A style ethos that you subscribe to?
And, more importantly, do you have any tips that you can share with those less style-fortunate folk such as myself???
Oh, by the way, There has been sewing here - quite a bit that I haven't shown you of late really, done to loud off key singing (from me) to the sounds of Adele.
My camera was on loan to a friend - it's back now so I will attempt to catch up in the next few days.
