    What do you think of the look of denim on denim? Because I love denim & I think it should be brought back.. Denim 4ever!!

    • Dear Mr T:)

      You’d be happy to know that your fav 90s style of denim on denim is making a come back for Spring 2011 with numerous designers such as Celine, Derek Lam, and Stella McCartney bringing attention to denim on their runways. If you take a trip to any jeans shop you will find tons of different denim washes including medium, white, saturated and lets not forget our favourite….. acid, just to name a few. However, to ensure you don’t look like a hot mess, I would suggest leaving the washes on their own and pairing your denim on denim with same hue pieces.

      So dust off those double denims as it is this year’s Marmite trend for brave souls such as yourself, but would suggest leaving the cowboy boots in storage!

      Cheers,

      Indiana

    Thank you Miss Holley for your constant inspiration and encouragement for women all shapes and sizes to look their best.

    Without your advice I would have never put on a fur coat (of course PETA accredited) and been so confident.

    Thank you for changing my life in the confidence you have given me.

    Your style is classic with an edge and u doubt there is a figure you cannot fit.

    Love your biggest fan xx

    Sorry Miss Holley to ask another question.
    I know you are completely against real fur or anything the same however I have found the most amazing fascinator that uses real ostrich feathers, I love it but after the insite you gave me on the explotation of the industry is this something I can even consider buying?? Some ideas pleeeease!!

    • To the ever so lovely Miss Kiah

      Thank you for your kind words and for all the years of friendship and confidence you too have given me. Over the years I have watched you become a strong, sophisticated and elegant woman with impeccable taste whom has stayed true to the values you keep close to your heart, in particular your love for animals and the ethical treatment of them.

      Unfortunately, while the nineties saw real fur creep off the catwalks in shame, thanks to the “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” supermodel campaign, fur has yet again crawled it’s way back into the collections of Italian and French designers who have unapologetically used and worked with every conceivable animal from sable to mink, chinchilla and fox. Although the lux look sets fashionista’s hearts aflutter, people who wear fur are either ignorant or arrogant about animal suffering. It doesn’t hurt to find a more animal-friendly option which is what I have always promoted.

      As we might secretly yearn for the old fashioned allure and glamour of the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, the rights and wrongs of wearing animal furs and feathers has become a minefield of complicated and moral and ethical dilemmas. So where does the purchase of current ostrich feathers fit into this debate?

      Perhaps the most pragmatic way to approach this is to first find out whether the feathers where sourced in an eco-friendly gathering way (some farms sell feathers that have been molted and naturally shed by birds as part of their growing cycle). If you are unsure, simply ask your supplier directly. If you are going to purchase a product, you are entitled to know exactly where it has been sourced.

      Other feather suppliers specialise in collecting vintage feathers and selling them in bulk. Many people see vintage as an ethical choice: a guilt-free, pro-animal rights, pro-environmental way of wearing fur or feathers. It has been emphasised by eco-columnists and fashion environmentalists, the need to recycle everything from fur and feathers to ensure that no further animals have to die today to satisfy our desire for a lux look.

      Another option is to research whether the product has the “humane seal of approval” developed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) in conjunction with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The seal of approval promotes what it sees as the humane treatment of farm animals. It has begun a labeling program for meat, poultry, dairy and egg producers who meet its criteria for raising farm animals under humane conditions.

      However, only your own conscience can dictate your actions. A good motto to live by is “beauty without cruelty”.

      Hope this helps with your decision making.

      Love your biggest admirer
