why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

TIP...I love the colours of the foil that have been stitched into the jumper and have picked one of the colours out to layer with a dress underneath and a red lip give that dressed up look even when wearing trainers

TIP...a sequin embellished jumper adds glamour to an old pair of jeans (go for longer length for a slouchy look)and a long string vest underneath is a great way to add texture and layers
