I’m not saying I was the perfect child who never put a foot wrong, but yes I had ponies, bikes and Barbies.
I did kiss a certain David behind the school shed when I was 9, when his girlfriend was at home with a cold, but I never smoked a cigarette until I was 20.

What not many people know is that in days gone by, I was a bit of a rock chick.
Whisky, wine, cigarettes and song. Pop stars, rock stars, dangerous liaisons, Fender guitars and a life on the edge with charismatic guitarists. Well alright … I’m exaggerating a little! Maybe it was like that for Jerry Hall 😉

Aging Rock Chicks
The little bit of rock-chickdom I encountered was hell fun while it lasted – and it all had to do with a lifestyle, a look and a culture that was irreverent and fun.
Glam, bold, love me or leave me type of style.
So what do you think? Are we too old to try the the Rock Chick look after 50?
Can we be feisty for the fun of it, sleep in late, and stay up late on the wine? (good wine please).
Gawd – Actually, I feel exhausted just thinking about it 😉

How to dress like a Rock Chick
- Just got out of bed hair.
- Smoky eyes
- Think Chrissy Hynde, Marianne Faithfull, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton
- Skinny jeans
- Killer queen black boots and bling.
- Statement scarfs – velvet if you please.
- Tailored bright red jackets, or distressed aviator brown leather jackets trimmed with fur, or long black jackets trimmed with satin lapels.
- Big tortoiseshell or black sunglasses.
- Toss out Julie Andrews but crank up Debbie Harry as you sing out of opened car windows at traffic lights.
- Logo T-shirts with your fave band splatted across your boobs – or otherwise something to do with booze.
- Fluffy mohair not cashmere please.
- Think good girls turned bad.
- Flirty dresses layered over leggings or drainpipe jeans.
- Minis if you must.
- Black hats with wide brims worn at rakish angles.
- Layering always – a Rock chick never knows where the yacht might take her.
