Isa Arfen x

I love this white dress from Isa Arfen! Such a bold, eye catching design.

Maison Bentley Style


 A mixture of new and found, Isa Arfen is the London-based label started in 2011 by Serafina Sama.


Serafina graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art & Design in 2006 and has since built up an impressive portfolio of experience: Marni, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Acne and Charlotte Olympia. It shows.


The label captures and enhances the subtle shift in the fashion mood – Soft but with feminine confidence..A walking statement of drama without causing offence.


Serafina says: ‘To me, fashion is about desire, beauty and fun.  It’s not about dressing up in a costume. Isa Arfen is about a real woman dressing for her real life and really enjoying it.’




Charismatic, eclectic, elegant and exuberant…it lights me up like a Lee Broom light.

2013 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.

I’ve got my red dress on tonight…

I’m so excited to meet Taryn Watt and her blog Watt to Wear!

Just as a picture can say a thousand words, so too can a little red dress. Red, the colour of passion, fire and love – a dress in this sensual hue can be a powerful weapon in your wardrobe. Have fun, get sexy and wear with caution. 😉
1375712_10151758306564682_995066060_nphoto (10)ASOS excels at stunning little red dresses at ridiculously low prices. The majority of the dresses come in midi length which, while is the trend of the minute, doesn’t suit everyone. So if this is you (like me) or you simply just want it shorter to make it a little more fun, take it to the amazing ladies at PQ Fashions and have them shorten it to the ideal length for you, just like I did.

How to look slimmer

After two pregnancies, my tummy has really exploded! Although my boys are in their teens now, my slim waistline has said “Goodbye” to me for good. The ultimate solution for me, is in hiding. I really am a fake lean person! Having been blessed with lean arms and legs , everyone believes that I have no worries about what to wear. You must be joking! My brioche-like cellulite are sitting THERE! (I still hesitate to cut off my own fat and use it for cooking instead of my regular cooking oil).

If you have complex figure like me, black or other dark color clothing is your ally. Above all, thinking of dressing in total color look for your figure will not look like it is cutting into halves. Remember! you are considered thicker and thinner only at a glance. Also avoid too flashy or large…
