Milehighstyle(Linda) loved Alison’s response to a magazine article on style “rules”, because as we’ve so often discussed on the forum, putting everyone over a certain age in the same box just doesn’t fly.
Angie enjoyed a softer Burberry Prorsum collection for Spring and Summer 2014, her favourite show at London Fashion Week. She said: “Pinks for me, lilacs for Inge, and lots of midis, lace, short sleeves, dots and stripes”.
Laurinda was surprised that the dress codes for Abercrombie & Fitch workers are this detailed — down to the size of the cuff on jeans.
These two style sudokus on Mint Velvet caught Vildy’s attention, and also led her to this office wear-inspired one on Pinterest. When you do the fashion math by connecting items across, down and diagonally, you should end up with 10 outfits.

La Belle Demimondaine absolutely adores “silly ’60s-attempts-at-a-period-film-but-you-can-see-the-’60s-style-all-over-the-place-movies”.
