PINSTRIPES & RUDE NURSES

As you should know by now, I can be quite a tomboy when it comes to clothes. Blame it on the boyish name (Frankie or Freddie – yes, my real name is Freddie, I’ve been exposed far too much on Instagram to keep pretending now) or on the comfort of the loose style, truth is I love hanging out in the men’s section and it’s not only because of the men, themselves.

I absolutely go bonkers for suits, well tailored pieces with a strong shape and finish. That’s my dope. It doesn’t matter your body shape, good tailoring takes care of it and shoots you right up to the classy women row. Oh yeah.

Now some of you don’t really agree with the come back of the Birkenstock and their fat-and-rude nurse feel but it only means good news to me. First, I get to take mine out – they’ve been promoted from slippers to wardrobe staples and I’m not sure we can all relate to such a ladder climb now can we? So hands up for my sandals for doing so well in life. Second, well they allow me to indulge in the suits without looking like I’m heading to some sort of summit on a Sunday afternoon and Gosh I love them for that. My suits are now seen as casual (and I could wear them to Poundland if I wanted to) A freed Frankie then (who since has purchased 2 new suits and plans on buying more – any excuse).

    Hey there,

    I just stumbled upon your blog – it’s amazing! I really fancy your style 🙂

    I do realise this post is quite old, but if you still own those trousers, would you consider selling them to me? Please contact me if you would! 🙂

    xoxo
