We may all remember being taken by granny, thanks to her lifetime National Trust membership, taking leisurely strolls through the gardens of stately homes, staring at centuries old painting of aristocratic people in ostentatious clothing.
What I realise, now I am a full grown up, is that granny got it right: a trip to a stately home is a trip to a realm of wholesome nostalia not often available in our modern lives.
I first saw this view in the at Holyrood House in a 17th century painting of the Grand Fountain Garden.

A writer, actor, comedian and fashionista a.k.a. superstar, I hope to share some of my most intimate thoughts and share the most interesting and colourful parts of my life with you, with constant updates of my sartorial choices, ranging from elegant to erotic, eclectic to exotic which I hope will be visual treats for you to devour and for me to admire.
