Comment on What online retailers can learn from Fever London’s ‘Perfect Fit’ campaign by Erika.

Same problem here, muscles in the arms and back. Not in the least bit athletic, much more gardening and heaving firewood ;). But what I also want to see is laundering instructions. I most emphatically do not want something that can only be dry-cleaned.

Trend Trial | Sensible Sandals as a Fashion Statement
Another foot-problem child here, and I couldn’t agree more. It’s hard finding stylish looking sandals, but not impossible. I’m very fond of my Birkenstocks, but they’re definitely not what I would consider with anything other than jeans. Currently crushing on Earthies, which have lots of arch support and don’t even need orthotics!


Ugg boots were the most searched-for “fashion” item on Black Friday
Ugg boots are necessary, but so Not Stylish. The only excuse for wearing them out is that they were on my feet when my back seized. True story, don’t think the ambos cared either. Best ever pair I had were from the local tannery, sadly they don’t make them anymore and I have to check thoroughly to make sure I get proper Australian ones.

They do get heavy use as my feet get very cold, particularly when I’m working (ie stuck in front of the computer for the day).


What to Wear When You Work From Home
I work from home 4 days out of 5. Generally jeans and uggs during winter (perennially cold feet) with whatever jumper/top/cardigan combination feels right. A degree of practicality is required as the bull terrier will inevitably need some lap time. And if I’m feeling particularly well and energetic (I’ve CFS), I’ll do a few minutes in the garden as a break from the keyboard. Summer, it’s whatever will deal with the Australian heat. So quite possibly a sarong that has to be pulled up if there are visitors. Let us just say that the heat and I are not friends.


Closet Heroes: Leggings
Love. So many dresses are shorter than I would like, and leggings make them wearable. But they really come into their own in winter, layered under skirts from mini to maxi and with boots. Warmth wins!


Winter Wardrobe Essentials for Women
Only true if you live in the north of Australia. Down south in Canberra, we may not get inches of snow, but we certainly get very bleak weather and wind off the mountains and it cuts right through. So yes, I have a number of coats, far too many jumpers and cardigans, solid , boots, long socks, tights, leggings, singlets, lined leather gloves, headgear, scarves, decently thick skirts and trousers (leather or suede is highly recommended – keeps the wind out!)
