Wow, well thank you for the lovely comments on my hair. Seriously!
Just a quick post today as I am freezing cold having just got in from an appointment, and I really ought to be doing some course work this morning so I can catch up with everyone’s blogs later πŸ˜‰

Yesterday I wore



and today I am wearing this, plus a couple of cardigans. Trying to get a picture early in the morning doesn’t really work in terms of lighting hence there only being one, and it being a bit dodgy!


I’m deeply saddened by the news of Alexander McQueen’s death; although I don’t have much to say on the matter, especially when other bloggers have said what I’d like to in a far better way than anything I could come up with.
I just hope he is at peace now.

  82. i am so jealous of that blazer. i want to make that trend work so hard, but for some reason they just look bonkers on me.
    also im with you on the news about McQueen. can you believe i actually shed some tears? IMHO, the greatest loss the fashion world has ever endured. He was like Dali to me. The greatest in his field and beyond art. There will never be another.
