Bowled over by fashion

I can’t put it off any longer. I need to deal with one of the most Important Issues facing us today. An issue upon which Vogue, The Sartorialist and other influential fashion commentators and stylists have remained sadly unhelpful:
How to Style Bowling Shoes
No expense is spared here at Blighty Inc. I quicky pulled together a team of top models for an on-location shoot to show how to pull off Bowling Shoe Style. I seem to recall Bruno saying there should be a Nobel Prize for Fashion. Well, I’m definitely in the running now.

Boy 1 rocks the look with long shorts and ankle socks in dishwater grey which cleverly match the bowling venue floor

Boy 2 goes chavtastic in Primark white trackie bottoms with blue go faster stripes, and completes the look with grey and red stripey socks

Mrs Blighty goes for broke with synapse shocking tomato red skirt and some tights she found in the bottom of the drawer that morning

So there you have it! Effortless bowling shoe style. And did you notice the tights? More to come on these in my next post, the All NEW and EXCITING FEATURE, TIGHTS OF DEATH

Don't miss it!

Blighty Models stayed at Lane 15, AMF Bowling, bumpers were used at all times, Boy 2 won after an unfeasible number of strikes, Mrs B got her fingers stuck in the big purple ball and everyone got cross and grumpy, and had to be taken home. Mrs B would like to thank the management of AMF and hope they can reopen soon.


  1. Please desist forthwith with the feeble "punny" titles, I have checked and they are in breach of the Geneva Convention and also they are incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights, Regards Mr Blighty P.S. Please apprise re trouser/drycleaner situation

  2. Did you mean to wear a red skirt to match those delish bowling shoes Blighty?
    I too have tights of death. Leggings I purchased during a stay in Japan (their size large is our size small) and I'm sucked in so much I feel like I've had liposuction.
    They should be great for warding off DVT.
    Ps. To save confusion, I'm a different Anne-Marie to the delightful thehousethata-mbuilt. Same gorgeous name and city though. xx

  3. Blighty. You really are a scream. Have loved you posts on FF's blog since the first comment. Good on you for starting up a blog. Am at home with master 1 ,miss 2 , and misses 3 & 4 ( twins) and you bring a smile to my dial. Thankyou x

  4. hi blighty,

    you all look quite stylish. i especially love your look. the bowling shoes remind me of an oxford of sorts. sorry about the fingers being stuck, that can be embarrassing!


  5. Dear Anne-Marie, thank you for clearing up confusion re name and other A-M. I have always loved that name since a girl called Anne-Marie arrived at our school when we were 13. She was an exotic creature - her mother was Belgian. She had a party and gave me directions to her house, finishing by saying, "My house is the one with the turrets". I was, and still am, v impressed by that!
    Perhaps to avoid any mix-ups all should comment as A-M in future?? Best wishes to all, Blighty A-M.

  6. Dear Janet, only good thing about fingers stuck in bowling ball is that any chipped polish is hidden; yes, useful beauty tips, pick them up here!
