Right peeps, I have just officially sent off my application form for a new Channel 4 show for budding stylists.  As I am a budding stylist I though ‘why not?’ get an application form and hope for the best.  I just hope my style in unique enough to get me through the vetting process!  I will keep you posted on any developments.  In the mean time, here’s a little post utilising my winter leather shorts…who said they can’t be worn in summer?!

    definitely a new fan dear, these shorts are too gorgeous and you’ve kept such a polished look with the detailed blouse and sash. Definitely worthy of notice so best of luck with the application dear! Officially a new follower of your lovely blog 🙂 xxx

    Good luck with your application. The program sounds really fun and interesting. I love those shorts by the way. I think you can still get away with leather shorts in Spring. xx

    Hey Em,

    I found some of these shorts online. We’re in winter down in the southern hemisphere. What should I wear them with?

    Hi Chameleon: I would wear them with thick opaque tights and really go for that layered look. So add a vest, then a tee, then perhaps a knitted waistcoat with a longer line coat over the top and some killer boots. they are pretty versatile so you can do so many things with them, just keep an open mind and experiment! 🙂 xxx

    Man you’re awesome Em. You really have opened my mind to different clothes. I never would have thought I would like leather shorts!

    Lets hope they’re still available online next week cause accidently already splurged today. 2 min noodles for the rest of the week ha.

    They are amazing shorts! Unfortunately though, these were from Christmas so I doubt you’ll be able to get them now, as they went into the sale too. However try eBay and if not, ASOS have an almost identical pair here (in Lilac…AMAZING!):
    or black and camel here:
