Unless you have been living under a rock, you will probaly know about the Time’s Up movement that was the big talking point of the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet. The Time’s Up campaign saw the majority of the women attending, walked the red capet wearing black, in solidarity with those that have suffered sexual harrassment or abuse, in the entertainment industry.

Some of the women helping to raise awareness were Oprah Winfrey (who wowed at the ceremony with an inspirational and powerful speech), Viola Davis, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, and Kerry Washington, amongst many others. Brave whistle blowers who have finally found the strength to come forward were homoured for their bravery, which was rather moving, and porbably meant a lot to women all over the world.

If you want to show some solidarity with the Time’s Up movement, you could wear a black dress, or tailoring for your next beg event or social occasion.

Christmas Countdown – Little Black Dresses Under $100

Can you believe we are now in single figures, on the Christmas Countdown. I’m starting to feel exciting now, especially since I have started wrapping the presents I have thoughtfully chosen. But, as I was wrapping and attaching bows, I realised that I hadn’t treat myself to anything for Christmas.

I usually like to reward myself after months of preparation with a little gift – maybe something to wear on Christmas Day, or a new book to curl up with on Christmas Eve. But, this year I have decided I would like a new little black dress. I haven’t decided whether I want something more causal, or a LBD that is perfect for a party.
