‘Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.’ (Elizabeth Taylor)

I created A Jaunty Angle as a celebration of a fine vintage style.

When I turned 40, I walked straight into an emergency hysterectomy and the aftershock of the menopause. And I lost my way for a few years; I lost sense of myself as a woman.

But now I’ve rediscovered the simple and timeless pleasures of the feminine…the lick of red lipstick, the high heel wiggle, and the jaunty angle of a hat.

‘Vain trifles as they seem, clothes have, they say, more important offices than to merely keep us warm. They change our view of the world and the world’s view of us.’ (Virginia Wolf)
