Never mind about Global Warming. My concern is that the planet is actually shrinking.
Take last Thursday, for example: Kaz (of Style My Wardrobe) & I had thought we'd try to meet at Liberty, but we didn't have a definite plan. So I arrived the moment she was leaving: we literally bumped into each other just as I was about to text her, and she was checking her phone. Okay, good timing, but not too freaky.
So we kiss goodbye, I walk into the Liberty Press Day event and literally two minutes later, who is the very first person I see? My new lovely friend Nao, the stylist ('meow, nao', and 'the wonderful world of nao').
How I wish Nao did a self style blog. I'm tempted to do it for her, but I'd have to run into her every day & shoot her. Instead, we did a quick photo shoot in the Liberty press room. There was some lovely Christopher Kane stuff which I'll post another time (it doesn't match this post) but I did find just the right little nook to match her hobo outfit. She actually found those trousers that way! And I love her handbag: we had that same exact basket in my childhood. What a cool alternative to an It bag, don't you think? It's so Green.
Coincidentally, when I saw Kaz a minute earlier, she showed me the amazing bag they gave away at the TU press day (where I was going, after Liberty). It's not in the stores yet but will be at certain Sainsbury's branches, and it really is amazing: inexpensive, with a fabulous cloth lining - and zippered pouch for phone etc - and the whole thing closes up with a drawstring, for security. And the best part is, the straps are strong, but soft, made of fabric. It's actually brilliantly designed.
I want to thank all of you who commented on the post the other day about self image (Lydia oh Lydia). I'm always grateful for your comments, but especially this one. You really amaze me: you're all so wise. I will be posting my feelings on it soon, I promise. But first: Mr. Dot is waiting for his eggs! (cheddar omelette, green salad, Paul's bread, leftover pommes Anna, and some crispy fried sliced chorizo).
Before I go, tho, I'm leaving you with some gorgeous bangles from the Liberty event. I am so a big bangle girl. Wrists are my body part of choice, for accessorising. (I'm good with 'statement' necklaces - it always feels too weird, kind of choking. I don't do necklaces, apart from my pearls, and Laura's Alice in Wonderland charm necklace).
Where's your favourite body part to accessorise?
