Ask Fallon: Why do I always leave the Disco alone?

Ask Fallon, solving unreal problems for unreal people. Fallon Carrington-Colby is an Heiress, Hotel Manager and Interior Designer. She lives in Denver Colorado with her long-suffering husband Jeff and their two dogs Misty and Jensen. Dear Fallon I am a thirty-five year old man looking to date again after finalising a relatively amicable divorce.

She had listened to her date for hours talking only about himself, as though he didn’t think she had anything interesting or worth while to contribute to the conversation. “There’s no place like home” she whispered one more time, wishing she could teleport herself out of the restaurant and into a bar with a gin and tonic and her favourite indie rock band playing, far, far away.

Gucci Style by Mégal Grouchka for Grazia France

“Yowzah! said Maxine out loud as she flicked through the pages of Grazia France on her lunch break and spotted Gucci Spring / Summer 2019 styled to absolute perfection. “It’s like women’s tailoring with a disco accent, and who doesn’t love a bit of disco” she thought to herself, wondering if she could ever pull off such a sophisticated and sassy look before acknowledging that yes, she definitely could.
