Welcome to the AceyAcey Blog
“Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress.”
AceyAcey is an extension of a project that began on eBay over ten years ago.
As I’m writing this blog, I’m watching a hokey mini-series on the life of Coco Chanel from 2008. Whilst it isn’t the finest tele movie, I’m really enjoying watching Shirley McLaine play Coco. I’m inspired by Coco’s struggles to overcome the substantial challenges she had in life. Despite it all, she lived with such grace.
In some way or another we can identify other’s overcoming hurdles, challenges, change. We all have them. And life is certainly not linear.
Fashion has always had a connection with me. I studied textiles and design through school and was a stylist for many years in music and television in the late 90’s, early 2000’s.
The latter lead to a 17 year career as an executive producer in music television. This role took me around the world many times, meeting and interviewing some of the most fashion forward and fashion conscious, all the while I was searching and hunting for great pieces to add to my wardrobe in my spare time. However as so often happens you end up circling back to your first passion, and I have done just that with the launch of my e-boutique, AceyAcey.
Fashion has come full circle in my life with the arrival of AceyAcey’s own site. A huge new challenge and one that makes the most sense. I’ve always loved recycling my wardrobe with a mix of new but especially designer vintage pieces. A challenging task for many just finding the time to search out hidden gems, so I’ve done the legwork for you by curating a range of excellent pieces on the AceyAcey online store.
I look forward to sharing more of my views on the world of fashion, and hope to hear from you out there to!
