Sunday 7 – Dressing Down to Dress up

Dec 11th, 2018 Small Talk Bean 18 min read

Hello, How are you? Apologies for the delay in getting this final Sunday 7 of the year published…more a Tuesday 7, but that doesn’t sound quite as good, does it?! It’s a very busy time of year for pretty much everyone though, right? This post is probably also a bit too late in terms of Christmas Parties and the like, but if like me, you don’t…

Life in the 70s: Going Full Circle?

Hello, How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping & decorating? We don’t have a tree up yet. Zero decorations, in fact. We’re getting a bit of carpentry done at home next week… not the best timing, but it’s just how it’s worked out. Hopefully, hopefully… we can decorate the house after that. So… from the title of this blogpost, you may have guessed,…

Sunday 7 – The Christmas Jumper Edit

Hello! Welcome back to a Sunday 7! Getting festive this week, and taking a look at Christmas Jumpers. It’s Christmas Jumper day on December 14th… according to Save the Children but, in order to make the most of your investment, I think it’s OK to wear your festive knit or sweatshirt anytime from now, right through January… … and in fact, if you choose wisely, and go…

AHello there! I’ve been a little absent from my usual Sunday 7 slot… it’s getting to that time of year again, a bit like the Summer Sales, where it’s everywoman for herself, with ‘Black Friday’ deals being fired at us left, right and centre… … and if it’s not BF deals, then it’s the Party Dress edits or Party Shoe edits on the regular blogs…

Sunday 7 – The Patterned Knit Edit

Hello, And welcome back to a clothing Sunday 7 – after last week’s Gallery Wall With Hidden Meaning Sunday Blog! It’s been half term here, and the older boy’s birthday (the day before) Halloween, so things have been pretty hectic here in the Threads household. So much so, that I’ve pretty much worn jeans with my new Samsoe & Samsoe Fabrizia Sweater for a full week and…

A Gallery Wall with Hidden Meaning

Hello, And welcome to a Sunday… blog-post. No actual Sunday 7 today, just a generic little blog-post, about my lounge room Gallery Wall, which has taken some 6 years to put up. In fact, longer if I count the years which Mr T & I have shared a home – all of which pretty much sported, bare, naked walls! So here it is, my gallery…

Hello, And welcome to a normal, non-ranty, non-meltdown, Sunday 7! I received a great many comments (mainly over on my Instagram post, as well as a fair few direct messages and a couple of comments on the blog) after last week’s ‘to blog or not’ given I am a guilty party in apparently ‘promoting’ fast fashion brands via this blog. More on that at the end. Back…

Sunday 7 – Slinky Satin Edit

Hello, Welcome to another Sunday 7 – possibly the hardest one I’ve compiled to date. And by hardest, I mean, most difficult… I feel somewhat sombre and heavy-hearted in the knowledge that I am a teeny-tiny cog in the massive machine that has contributed to the awful environmental destruction of our planet. All in the name of fashion FFS. Utterly ridiculous! Before I launch into…

Sunday 7 – A/W 18 Checks and Tartan Edit

Oct 7th, 2018 Sunday 7 Bean 17 min read

Hello, And welcome to another Sunday 7. I’m looking at checks and tartan print this week, which are meant to be ‘big’ this autumn/winter… {… although, when have they ever *not* been big during autumn-winter?!} Whilst I normally shy away from animal print and large florals… checks and tartan are a firm favourite for me. Here’s what I’ve picked this week: 7. H&M – Checked…

Hello, A quick, cheeky Friday blog-post to review the Mango Cardigan (£49.99) I ordered this week… It arrived today and went straight on: a good sign, right? I hadn’t been expecting much, because the smallest size available was “XS-S” which from experience, normally means sizing will be generous. After all, look at how boxy the cut of the cardi is: It’s made from a 100% mix of man made…
