jacky and blue

I have just blown off the dust from this blog . There was so much- it  filled up the vacuum.

I was talking about it the blog other day in the past tense and realised how different things were when we started it . I didn’t really know what a blog as , and I remember you saying -whats that ?!

It seems the whole world got on the blogesphere and with that we more or less closed down as we got a little rattled .

There was never enough time in the day and late nights were a regular thing updating .

I have realised that I actually quite miss it – It was so nice waking up to your new posts and seeing your photographs , drawings and general fashion life .

Shall we start it again? Its the only reason why we stuck our names together .

Come on big sis

Homme 2012

I really love the new Sandro Homme 2012 look book that is  featured a lot on the internet at the moment  . They have captured that Parisian man so well .I could so easily wear this look myself . Well done team Sandro .

Finally, THIS is one of those cryptic fashion messages that I know the answer too!


Ten MagazineDecember 31, 201


Ouuu, they’re sharp, those fashion folk, aren’t they? So on the ball it’s frightening. There’s one fabulous behind-the-scenes designer lady who, on meeting the Queen, had, after some careful thought, just one thing to say: “I think she might be the poshest person I’ve ever met.” Erm, you don’t say, love.

Haha nudge nudge wink wink . I ain’t going to kiss and tell though …..

hello and goodbye

Blimey ol’ rileygovernor we have returned !

Our friends in the country think we are mad .

Our friends in London and pleased with our return .

Most people ,get to an age ,usually when kids arrive ,and leave the rat race and never return.

Always one to buck a trend , we and the family have come back after 6 years away.

Its feels a little bit naughty , but feels so right  .

(Now I have to learn how to use an oyster card )

I’ve caught a boeing

On google maps hybrid  yesterday evening .

Is this a normal concurrence in the world of satellite maps ?

Or have I missed a huge Jumbo exhibition happening just off the Seven Sisters Road?

Answers on a postcard please…..

I am not a big fan of horses .

But this combo could work for me .

(I would  have to minus the handlebar rope cord & bottom sheet . I mean, really )

Randomly found here

THEN she got me into …

A label ran by a friend of hers called Fuud . And I had a big love for these .

Wearing the trackies with a nice cashmere roll neck could work for me  .

(***But realistically I am not sure I am able to put the laura ashley dress at the back of the closet just yet….)

hip hop sis

So my gorgeous Hip hop sister arrived at the weekend .

Yeah-the younger sis has taught me a bit or two about fashion . I must look soooo boring/middle aged/past it  to her .

She told me about these labels that only the young would know about and I became more envious of her youth by the minute .

Her life ( as a trainee doctor ) revolves around leggings ,faux gold ,unitards,old school trainers and shell suit tops.

Moi is très jel .

She loves this label called Puckoo ( above)who custom make leggins for about £55.00 . Bit of a bargin if you ask me .

winter blues

I have found my old leather biker  jacket resonantly in  the bottom of a slightly dusty box -We were both very happy to see each other again after all these years . I have no idea where and when I got it  . But its a perfect fit ,arms slightly bent,good chunky angry looking zips

I have also adopted a pair of dungarees . Which (apparently )have an anti ageing effect on me . They are a bit comedy too as they seem to twist a little  . (However it does open up the debate for appropriate clothing for over 35 year olds . But hey)

Then the dress I swapped a few weeks ago ,for my reading glasses ,has become a favourite too in that Little House on the Prarie kind of way .Channeling 1970’s mom .

get on down

I know I have posted this before , but we do love it at Jackyblue

P.S can I have my dungees back now …

Burning up

I seem to spend most of my time sorting ,shifting and piling .

Is this a fashion side-effect ? Stuff ?

With a fear of ending up as a crazy old person in a house full of stuff . I am getting rid.

Setting fire to loads and loads of unwanted tear-sheets and stuff .(not no1 photo -are you mad?!)

Keeping warm 3 nights running .

It feels good to let go .
