I’ll Be Your Wall. (Of clothes)

I’ve been talking in my sleep again, folks. In the early hours of Monday morning, for instance, I apparently rolled over in bed and said to Terry, “Don’t worry: I’ll be your…

H&M Surprise

One day soon, I will write a post here that ISN’T about the surprises Terry gave me for my birthday.  Maybe tomorrow, in fact. Or, you know, maybe not, because I’m actually…

Confessions of a Shopaholic

The Season of Three Outfits Per Day

Well, I’ve kinda sucked at updating this blog this week, haven’t I? I’ve been busy. And OK, also lazy, but mostly busy, stock-piling blog posts like a demented thing so I can…

By Popular Demand: the coat!

Slightly against my better judgement, but because several of you asked to see it: I decided to keep it in the end, after my mum showed me how to tie the neck…

The Coat: a cautionary tale

So, a few weeks ago I became ever so slightly obsessed with a coat. As soon as I laid eyes on it I was all, “That coat will be mine!”, so what…

27 Dresses – but nothing to wear

MOT DAY: Survived! Now, what to buy…

The Grey Lady

Last night as I got ready for bed I opened my wardrobe to stroke my clothes and was hit by a sudden, hideous realisation. It was this: almost everything I have bought…

Bowled Over

We’re going to a networking event next month through Business Buzz. It’s a bowling night. I’m not looking forward to it. Oh, it’s not the bowling I object to per se, or,…

Hi, I’m Amber, and this is my fashion blog.

Well, OK, not really: while it is often described that way it’s not a fashion blog in the literal sense . You won’t find posts about fashion trends or runway shows here – in fact, you’ll find very little about fashion at all.

What Forever Amber is, then, isn’t so much a fashion blog as it is a style blog. I’ve always loved clothes, you see: ever since I was a teenager, I’ve been fascinated by personal style, and the way clothing can completely change the way you feel about yourself, and that’s what this site is about. So it’s a personal style blog, then, rather than a true fashion blog.

So, what can you expect to find here?

A little bit of everything, really. I mostly focus on daily outfit posts (although not so much with the “daily”, to be honest), showing you what I wear on a day-to-day basis, but I also like to throw in a few fashion tips and general thoughts on personal style.

Speaking of personal style, mine is most often described as “retro-inspired”, although that’s a little bit misleading: I do love retro style (particularly from the 50s and early 60s), but I rarely wear head-to-toe “retro”, and much prefer to mix my retro reproduction dresses with more contemporary styles. I like to call my style “classic” – you, of course, can call it anything you like, but be warned: I don’t follow trends, or subscribe to fashion rules, so what you’ll see here is very much my own personal style. My style philosophy has always been to wear what makes you happy: these are the clothes that make me happy, and I hope you’ll enjoy my posts, and stick around for a while!
