'It's a blog-eat-blog world out there, son.. somebody could get hurt.'
That's the quote on Claire Healy's twitter: @young_shields, from her blog of the same name. We met the first day of LFW, and I can't believe we haven't met sooner.
I love when people - who also happen to be attractive, and have great style - have interests that extend beyond self promotion. Whose goals are more than increasing their blog numbers, and becoming famous bloggers. Claire is back in Cambridge now, at Uni, and she's modest, and beautiful of course, but you can also, I hope, see the wisdom, and the humour, and especially, the kindness, in her eyes.
And her outfit? When we finally got round to talking about that, it really was a bit of 'oh this old thing?' She can't remember where she got her boots. Her picnic checkered trousers, granted, are Moschino, but - here's a tip for the fit girls amongst you - they're from the kids' department. Cheap, and chic.
It's hard to even look at leather jackets right now: we're packing swimsuits and goggles and sunscreen and heading to Surrey, bunking off for the day at the wonderful heated outdoor pool. Swim and write, write and swim. A gift from the Gods! And Claire: thank you for letting me post your shots. I know you're modest, and as self critical as the next girl, but you're a delight, and it's precisely because you're interested in so much more than how you look, or what you're wearing.
