Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

All that jazz

I visited the Fashion and Textile Museum  recently to see an exhibition on 1920s Jazz Age Fashion. After WW1 women's fashion reflected a more active lifestyle. Hemlines began to rise, tiny waist lines disappeared and women were more active. The 1920s allowed for all shapes and sizes in a multitude of styles., some of which have stood the test of time and are still around today.

  5. Interesting shots from a different age. I've never understood fashion, I'm a jeans and t-shirt guy. Most days I dress up for work, I put on a polo shirt with my jeans.
