Sometimes I really can't believe what a hypocrite I am. You really mustn't believe a word I say. It's not that I'm a liar.. I've known people who are compulsive liars, that's different. I can't lie because it's too much work, keeping one's story straight, and besides, I always end up laughing or smiling & giving myself away.
But I do say things that are entirely untrue. Contradictory in terms.
Take, for example, a little thing like the Topshop breakfast on Tuesday. We arrived at the new Knightsbridge shop, were on the list, came in. Lovely. They offered us tasty morsels to eat and drink. All good.
Saw lovely items, like this sparkly cascade dress for £150. Lovely: like being in a light, spacious, fashion museum. Still good.
Saw the cute little dog..
..Chatted a bit with people like Liz (above), and everyone said the same thing: have a look around, TRY THINGS ON..
...As we wafted up the spiral staircase, where cute guys were doing finishing touches like polishing up the chrome, I confided to Bianca 'I don't know what the fuss is about, frankly. I mean: it's just a shop! I don't even like to shop.' 'Me neither,' she admitted. 'I buy everything onine.' I glanced at her and thought, I don't even do that. I mean, apart from my recent purchases - which I was wearing - £10 breton top from Zara, and a pair of 'vintage' jean shorts from H&M, I haven't bought anything in a coon's age.
Then I saw them. And my heart stopped.
And then.. it all became a blur.. someone whispered in my ear 'Would you like to try them on?'
I'm sorry to stop you here, but it's a gorgeous day, and Mr. Dot wants to get in the car so we can leave town and go swimming for the day. I'll continue the story later, I promise. I'm afraid if I post too many photos it will take forever for you to upload. I'm off into the sun but before I go: Not Just Medical is back, and I love her post, In The Sun.
Hope you're starting off the most perfect weekend, wherever you are! xo
