Favourite Thing On A Friday - Wordshaker Magazine and LBD's

It's Friday.  It's December.  This can mean only two things:

1. Favourite Thing On A Friday.  Yaaaay!
2. Dusting off my Little Black Dress in time for the Christmas festivities.

I love clothes.  With an absolute passion.  I love how putting together an outfit is an expression of how I'm feeling.  I love playing at dressing up.  Most of all, I love Little Black Dresses.  Ever since first seeing Audrey Hepburn sip her cup of coffee in THAT dress in "Breakfast at Tiffany's", when I was around the tender age of fourteen, I have had an ongoing love affair with the LBD.

Over the years I've had a range of different Little Black Dresses.  Each year, at this time of year, I go through my wardrobe and I pull out my current one, in time for the festive season.  I still have three of my all-time favourites lovingly stored in tissue paper. Beautifully made.  A long Calvin Klein figure hugging number from the early nineties.  A short Calvin Klein tailored number from the late nineties.  And a very special handmade Little Black Dress from the early 1950's.  I was 19 when I found it in 1987.

It's a special day for me today.  I've written my first guest post, which is being featured over at Wordshaker Magazine, sharing the story of that very special 1950's dress I found. It would be wonderful if you fancied popping over and having a read. (My article will be available to read as soon as it is published today.)

If you haven't already come across Wordshaker Magazine, I highly recommend you paying them a visit.  It's an online magazine written by a team of three very talented writers, who write for other women.  It covers an eclectic mix of topics including fashion, health issues, relationships, as well as current events.  Wordshaker Magazine also offers the opportunity for women bloggers and budding writers to write contributing articles.  For me it's been a great way to build my writing confidence, and share a story, all at the same time. Wordshaker Magazine is edited by Jules, a lovely lady who is currently working very hard to complete her first novel.  Jules writes a personal blog which you can find here. Jules' blog is interesting, sassy and features words like "amazeballs" which make me laugh out loud.  Thank you, Jules, for featuring my article.  You put a smile on my face this week.

So my Favourite Things On A Friday this week are Wordshaker Magazine and Little Black Dresses.

What have you been up to this week?  Link up below and I'll be over faster than you can sing "Moon River", to find out.

  5. I'd love to see your LBDs. I've yet to see Breakfast At Tiffanys. Aren't I a bad vintage girl?
    Nothing beats planning an outfit, trying it on, experimenting with your jewellery, handbags and hairstyles. Like having a Sindy doll when you were little.
    Jules is the best, I'm off to read your guest post in a bit. x

  7. I second Vix i would love to your LBD's also especialy the handmade 50's one ;-)) I love Audery Hepburn she was so stylish and so beautiful and breakfast ate Tiffanys is smashing ;-)) Have a lovely weekend, dee x

  8. There is nothing like an LBD to make you feel glamorous. I've borrowed one this year, last years is too tight - eek!

    I just hope the snow keeps away for my night out, wellies won't look right with it.

    Have a fab weekend,

    Lucy x

  9. LBDs are just classic, aren't they? As is Audrey's style in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Show us your frocks, Em!
