Woman, mother of 3, husband, business from home, amazing fashion, looking amazing, kicking ass. Tick to all
Me, on the other hand felt like a bag lady alongside this gorgeous wee thing, Becks from newly named Charlotte Lane.
I am always in trouble 1) usually with my bank manager and 2) at work, but this time I’m going to be the bank manager’s worst nightmare (no change really there) and my work mates are gonna love me as I’ll introduce them to Charlotte Lane Website and online store.
Charlotte Lane caught my eye because I’m deeply (secretly and not secretly, I have Dr Martens) in love with the 90’s. Music, fashion, jelly shoes. And Charlotte Lane has it all. Tartan dresses, splashes of glitter, grunge, rockin’ shirts and blouses that are so sexy and so bloody affordable that every time I go on the website I have to back away from it, covering my eyes.
They also had a shirt with a certain term on the collar that my mum would tell me off for wearing in public. So of course, the 15 year old in me bought it. It was the last one. I had to. You’re now wondering what the term is aren’t you. Buy me a coffee and I’ll tell you. Buy me cake too and I’ll let you borrow it.
I met Becks (power house fashionista and mum all rolled into one) one night to chat about her love of fashion, how she does it and where the good stuff comes from. I looked, as i’ve said, and felt like a bag lady, after a long day sweeping chimneys (like I’m going to reveal what I do- I’m Batman remember) Becks looked sharp and resplendent in everything I wanted off the website. She just loves fashion and wanted (after her babies were born) to have something for her. Photographs are taken ‘as is’. You get exactly what you see in the photos (which is great as they’re stunning in real life) and you know that there aren’t going to be 1000 other people wearing the same thing as you.
Alongside the clothes there’s jewellery from Frankly My Dear, a new line she’s now carrying (NEW LINE ALERT!)
Oh bugger, there goes my savings for my flight home next year. Sorry family. There was an urgent jewellery/ clothes dilemma. I told you I’m Batman. I have to attend to all urgencies.
I asked her what her dream is for the future “for every girl to be wearing a piece I sold them”. I love big thinkers. I’m a scaredy cat when it comes to saying things out loud but Becks goes for it. Puts it out there for the world to hear.
Pieces bought are wrapped with care and Queenstowners who order get same day/ next day delivery. So if you have a date/office promotion/ random hysterical thing you have to go to you know it will be in your wardrobe by the next day.
