Their sizes range 10 - 32 - that's right ladies, realistic sizes! 


I've never been particularly hepped on the "rent clothes that someone else has been wearing" idea. But I put that down to being a bit too old school.

Over at Not Dead Yet...

The Ines-de-la-Fressange look book

I'm beginning to think that as you get older, your style either goes to the elaborate - or the simple.
