Red shoes, No knickers



June 2012



Back to the Future

This was one of my favourite dresses that I per-chased last year from my beloved Rokit.  I was – of course! – drawn to the print, picked it up and instantly thought ‘all island disco, DM boots, Ben Fallows and wearing my brother’s beany hat’ – Yes the 90’s!

I know the 90’s are making a comeback this summer but I believe – told so by Tim who has since changed her mind! – that if you were wearing that decade when it originally came round – say as a teenager – you shouldn’t do it again.  Another mutton dressed as lamb incident me thinks.


My secret power is that I can normally tell whether something fits me just by looking at in and sure enough, this baby fit like a glove and I couldn’t resist buying it.  I wore it so much last summer as it’s easy to wear, fits perfectly around my waist and although is uber short is incredibly full and so doesn’t feel too ‘oooohhh there’s my ass!’ short like these summer treats {here and here}

Also my thinking was that my version of the 90’s NEVER involved showing this much leg – Bestie From Africa can vouch for that she was there with me.  It was all about wearing long hippie skirts, big boots and baggy jeans a la Kris Kross who’ll make you wanna JUMP JUMP!

Hopefully with an M&S wedge and a whiff of age I’ve bought this out of the 90’s and into the 10’s.  What say you?
