Tell us what you think… Strong, not Skinny Okay, so let’s face it, most of us would love to lose those extra pounds and be able to to squeeze into those size 6 jeans… But truth be told, skinny is slowly making it’s way out of the desired...

History Trip – No.3 AW14 trend

Disco fever? Garish prints? Mix and match, Pic n’ Mix? Swinging silhouettes? Exactly. Absolute absurdity. But really, we all love taking a trip back to the 60’s, 70’s and 90’s. Why?
