Vintage GaGa

Holy Moly!!!

It's Lady GaGa in 2006... looking so normal... she looks like she could work in HMV or be one of those really annoying Charity people who harass you on the street despite being paid £7 an hour!!

This is vid of her performing.

Baby, it's cold outside...

I have just caught up with last weeks Ugly Betty and got totally jealous of everyone wearing fabulous winter clothes and of course the fact that it is set in my spiritual home.. NYC *swoon*

I am definitely a Summer person, I love tanning the natural way, the way the sun warms your skin, flip flops, sunglasses and maxi dresses.. but whenever the nights draw in closer, and you suddenly have to wear long sleeves I get geared up for Winter.

This sudden late spurt of Summer weather is not welcome.. you had your chance Mother Nature and let's face it you were a selfish b****h when it came to dealing us any consistent sun! I have changed over my wardrobe in preparation for Winter and anything remotely wearable in the sunshine is weeping in my drawers (no pun intended) and top wardrobe shelves.

So let me declare I LOVE WINTER... scarves, hats (I have a great shaped head for them), coats and that feeling of being cold yet you are all wrapped up in 100 layers and not feeling guilty if you forget to shave your legs. Can't forget mulled wine, eggnog and hot choc which IMO all help!

So bring on the Winter MN.... I'm ready!

Love. SGS xoxo

What to wear at the office..

I just attended meeting about a magazine.. not anything uber trendy or remotely glam, just a community magazine that goes out to members of the public.

Women outnumbered men at at this meeting about 10-2 and I couldn't help notice what everyone was wearing.

My favourite outifit had to Lady 1, who wore a red shift dress to the knee with a black cardi and snakeskin shoes. She sort of looked like Michelle Dewberry- who won The Apprentice (before Lee( and left Sir Sugars' empire after 2 months.., stylish and practical.

Lady 2 wore a bright purple long sleeve stop, ruched at the shoulders, with a black belt, 3/4 trousers and grey suede heels. Earrings were dangly and sparkly.. stylish yes, but sort of more appropriaite for an after work knees up.

So where is the balance?

I think that to get it right you should start with the basics. Here are my top 5 tips..

1. Have a smart pair of black trousers that fit you.. not the trousers you wore when you were 17 but ones that are the right cut and can be worn with heels.

2. Shift dresses in any colour are great- versatile and can be dressed up and down.

3. Skirts have to be acceptable length, you may look Heidi Klumesque when you stand up but you don't want to show your lady bits when you sit down.

4. Scarves are your friend.. pashminas or neck scarves will jazz up any outfit, lift an all black outfit and may be good to cover the occasional spot on your chin.

5. Don't wear tights with holes in.. even if you are late! Julia Roberts rocked the Pretty Woman look, Trashy Woman is NOT a good look.

What am I wearing today?

All about the comfort.. let's leave it like that.

As I enjoy writing on Facebook and Twitter (well not so much... I am a voyeur of the celeb world) and reading other Blogs, I have decided to start a Blog of my own.

This is very much work in progress and I hope to have it looking tip top very soon... please be patient!

I'm guessing my main topics of blogs will be about me (god I love blogging) and what is affecting me- mainly job hunting, fashion, films, celebs, music and anything that I so happen to think of.
