As women, we have a clear choice when it comes to style:
a) Figure out what suits you, is practical, easy to maintain, packs well and doesn’t date. Look good 99% of the time.
b.) Experiment. Have bad days, mediocre days and, best of all, amazingly inspired days when, somehow, it all comes together and you ‘crack it’.
This blog is all about b.
Bonk (Mum) and Josie (Daughter) are into clothes, interiors, relationships and Period dramas…
We talk (regularly) about what we want to buy, what we should buy and what we can afford to buy. These conversations have become increasingly honed and now, we feel, we are ready to share our outlook.
Have no regrets.
Bonk was born in a sleepy South Wales Valley the 50’s. That era of Betty Draper, Crackerjack and all things eggshell…
Don’t let that fool you.
The next 50 have seen her move seamlessly from Barrister to Tax Inspector, to Fashion Boutique Assistant, to Relationship Counsellor…
In short (she’s 5ft 2″), she has an opinion.
Josie is her mother’s daughter… minus the legal brain, and plus 8″.
(5 of which are thanks to her father’s genes, the other 3 can be directly attributed to an impressive collection of heels).
She’s 29 and works in North London as a fashion designer.
