Saint and Sofia are a fairly new fashion brand, they started in January 2020, currently just online, but offering some really stylish mix and match capsule pieces and I am excited to have been given the opportunity to try them out and share my outfits with you!
I enjoyed browsing the Saint and Sofia website, it is so classy and vibrant and I love their photography - take a look under campaigns 'All Dressed Up, But Nowhere To Go' the photographer has really caught the mood of the empty London streets, it is a unique emptiness and something (I hope) we will never witness again but there is a certain poignancy in the photographs.
As I browsed the Saint and Sofia website to choose two items that would be gifted to me to feature on my blog, I noticed how every item can be used across the seasons, it didn't feel like they were limiting to winter or summer. Seasonless fashion is becoming much more of a thing where we see summer dresses being 'winterised' with layers like leggings, tights, boots and a cosy knit and then ready for spring and summer as the layers come off and we can move first to trainers then to sandals. We are moving away from fast fashion and back to timeless, classic styles where we embrace sustainability and get the best value cost per wear.

Well yes I know I don't have a bigger bust but I do love flattering bikinis and swimwear and I love the cup sized swimwear options from Fantasie. I also love encouraging other women over 50 to embrace confidence and wear beautiful lingerie, swimsuits or bikinis. But as we are all mostly having a UK staycation this year, we may be feeling like we don't need new swimwear, but ... we still want to feel fabulous and embrace our inner confidence, and you never know, we might be lucky and have a heatwave summer!
I am sharing two lovely swimwear styles from Fantasie, the Fiji bikini was a previous gift and the Burano deep plunge swimsuit was gifted to me recently. Fantasie offer a vast range of comfortable and supportive cup sized swimwear with lots of different shapes, styles and coverage options, you can mix and match their bikini tops and bottoms to find the right combination for you.
Research shows that the average British woman will get through 1,700 pairs of pants in her lifetime!! And that legacy of lingerie in landfill can take up to 200 years to degrade. Guilty as charged, sorry. But I love lingerie and whilst I can donate and recycle bras that isn't possible with pants In this post I am going to introduce you to two brands, WUKA and Modibodi, for everyday sustainable underwear, moisture wicking pants for hot days and workouts, and period pants that are not just for periods!
I know most of my readers will be past the point of needing sanitary products but we still have daughters and there is a big concern about the plastic packaging, applicators and harmful chemicals from these products.
WUKA have just launched a new range of Everyday Underwear which is zero waste, and carbon neutral and they are committed to driving environmental change and fighting fast fashion. They sent me a set to try out.
Firstly, I am really flattered and excited to have been asked to be involved in the Hotter campaign promoting comfort, not only in our choice of footwear but with who we are. My focus for my blog has always been about what I am doing, what works for me and sharing that inspiration with my readers. If I like it, you might too, that is my philosophy and how I choose what I share on Fifty & Fab. And I love stylish but comfortable feet! And Hotter are a brand that I feel are getting that right, with 40 fitting and size combinations to give us the perfect fit, as well as upping their design game to create shoes we want to wear.
According to Hotter's research, us self-conscious Brits finally stop worrying about what other people think of them at age 46! Hotter want to inspire women to get comfortable with their new campaign. When you feel comfortable, you can achieve anything! What would you say to your younger self?
