Believe it or not I've been in Afghanistan. Yes I know a random place for someone as cute and stylish as me to be but I was there for ten days helping entertain the troops, boosting morale as they say. All in a dancer type fashion. Above board may I add. A group of fifteen, three dancers, four band members, two comedians and some techies. It's not the first time I have been, well actually it's was the seventh. I'm a veteran. I had a great time even though at some points its was hard work. I mean having hundreds of soldiers cheering for you and getting to drive trucks and see a country not many people get the chance to see, really hard.
Now although the job has its rewards I had spent ten days in easy to wear comfortable clothes that I wouldn't mind getting mud and dust allover, TEN DAYS! Bit to long for someone of my disposition.

So After tens days of dust mud and snow I needed a fashion fix but like many people I'm sure this time of year is all a bit confusing. I'm a little fed up of hats gloves and scarves. There are fashion weeks and red carpets on every magazine cover and channel. All I want to do is get my new season on but alas it's still cold, 6c to be precise. So instead I took an element of the new seasons fashions "70's" and chucked in a little winter warmer and tada ensemble below! Picture this with a centre parting bone straight hair, 70's style head band (around forehead) leggings and over the knee flat leather boots.
