Helen Mirren in Vivienne Westwood

I’d love for you to go and have a look and start participating on my new Inside Out Style Forums you can register with your Facebook ID (so no need to remember extra passwords) and ask questions, leave tips etc. If there is a category you think I should add do let me know.  To start with then tell us something about you.  If you love your hairdresser or a particular shop or online store, recommend them.  Want to know what your body shape is ask away and post a photo.  I’m here to help.

To encourage you all to post on the forums I’m going to give away to the first 10 people who post a new topic with their questions/comments/recommendations, a copy of one of my ebooks (your choice).  So get posting and interacting!


I love that Helen Mirren has won best body of the year in Britain. That’s one for us girls over 40!

Love this post by Sal at Already Pretty about how manufacturers constantly  try and find flaws that don’t exist to sell us unnecessary stuff.

I’m mad keen on the crossover between our identity and our personal style and Une Femme has written a great post on this topic.

  • Hi Imogen
    I have never owned a pair of knee high boots – i think i must be one of the only people i know who hasn’t! but a stylist i saw a few eyars ago said people with an A shaped or peared shaped figure (which is me) shouldn’t wear them because it draws the eye down to the bottom half of the body, when you should be trying to draw the eye up to the top half. i would love to get some boots but don’t want to waste my money! what are your thoughts on this?

    • Knee high boots are fabulous and I don’t agree with that stylist at all! In fact, if the boot (say black for example) is tone with black opaque tights and a black or dark skirt it will make you look longer and leaner. The only time that boots will draw attention to your bottom half is if they are lighter or brighter than the rest of what you’re wearing on your bottom half.
