As Seen On Sarah

I can remember the precise moment where my passion for fashion began!  My grandmother was an incredible seamstress and used to make bespoke ball gowns for young women attending the famed May Balls at Cambridge University back in the 1960s.

When she had three granddaughters, it was inevitable that we were going to be impeccably dressed and I’ll never forget the darling little red wool coats she made for me and my sisters – each one adorned with gold military buttons and its own unique design details!

When I reached my 10th birthday, she asked where I would like to go and, although I lived in rural Devon and I’d never even been to London, I immediately answered “Harrods”.  The rest is history!

Fast forward several decades and I have found my spiritual home as a fashion blogger, content creator and soon-to-be stylist.  I can honestly say that, at 54, I have never been happier.

There are two types of girls in this world – those who love to share their fashion finds and favourites, and those who prefer to keep them to themselves.  Having spent 23 years living in London, I don’t think there was a day that I wasn’t stopped in the street and asked where an item of clothing was from, so my love of sharing daily fashion content started early.

My biggest joy is in sharing my favourite designers, collections and pieces……and seeing the smile on someone’s face when they look and feel fabulous!  Whilst I tend to blog primarily about “affordable luxury” and encourage followers to “buy well, buy once and wear more”, I also love finding those wonderful high street gems that we all adore.

I was thrilled to be asked to become a fashion columnist for the wonderful Algarve Lifestyle magazine, especially as I’m a sunshine girl at heart and resort wear is my absolute favourite.  So over the coming months, I look forward to sharing lots of beautiful fashion, beauty and lifestyle with you….and please do email my Style Surgery with any fashion questions you have [email protected].  I would love you to join me on Instagram for more daily fashion content – my account is @seenonsarah – and I look forward to sharing the best of fabulous fashion that will suit the wonderful readers.
