I told you I shopped. It's not like I committed a crime. Just a small fashion crime

I have finally had some time to just dress up, something I love to do, a bit too much. I've been scarily busy lately, and I like to think I'm a relaxed individual but these past few weeks, urgh.

So... they say if you remeber it the first time around, you shouldn't go there. But I'm saying the 90s doesn't count. This was entirely unintentional but how 90s do I wanna be? Crop top, check, doc martens (almost identical to the ones I had when I was about 8), Courtney Love style slip , check, grunge vibe - check. eek.
If Laura Ashley went to Studio 54...My mum recently commented that I was learning to colour co-ordinate. How wrong she was... I'm using props. That's nice.

Took this a long time ago, I've even had a haircut since, and I'm not a frequenter of the barber's chair. I was going for a Richard Nicoll vibe here, have now written vibe twice in this post, now three times. Anyway, this is Pamela's skirt and I would have liked to wear in the normal way but as I have the legs of a shetland pony it is not a viable option. So I tuck and fold. I've been having my shoulders out and about a bit recently. Crikey.
I've been watching the Rachel Zoe project. Very good television. I enjoyed when she said to her husband 'You know I hate it when you trivialise what I do'. It was like that scene about belts in The Devil Wears Prada. She takes fashion very seriously, and I can see how people think her job is pointless or whatever and her excessive use of hyperbole is nearly killing me off. Seriously. I die. But in actual fact I think she has my dream job.
