Never Complain, Never Explain.




Trousers - Pringles via Charity Shop / Top and Sunglasses - H&M / Boots - Dr Martens

'Never complain, never explain' because why should you. Katharine Hepburn was an incredible woman and, though I think I've only seen her in bringing up baby, someone I have very recently grown a great admiration for. I'm not so great with names or celebrity culture at all and I won't ever be but I do try to be sure that I take interest in particular lives, I often admire people simply for style but if there is a lot more to them than just appearances I am far more likely to remember and to admire them. If you aren't aware of Hepburn she was an American actress known for her independence, intelligence and, like Coco Chanel, for wearing trousers.

My Mum found these incredible Men's Pringles trousers in a local charity shop, Brand new with tags and suggested selling them on eBay shortly before saying 'Actually they'd look very Katharine Hepburn with a belt' and I couldn't let the idea go, and needed to know more about Katharine. I tried the trousers on and fell in love and am so excited to style them in Autumn/ Winter. They're timeless and I think will end up playing a very important part in my wardrobe for a very long time.
