Finally a day to catch up and back in the office! It has been a marathon of Press days both this week and last. There are still more next week but at least there is a short break to get some actual work done.

However - I have to share a story with you. I don't usually hold myself as throwing stones (as I live in a glass house) however I was having a lovely tea in the Wolsey yesterday - in between the huge downpour. As it was I had been seated 2 tables away from a very grand stylist. Now this, in itself is of little consequence, we did our best to politely ignore each other which often happens in Fashion. I carried on my conversation while hoping I wasn't being too indiscreet with my companion.

The thing that made it priceless for me was when she got up and left. As she waltzed out the door and put her suit jacket on you could clearly see the long sample swing ticket hanging from the centre label. Now the Editrix in question is not exactly what we would call sample size (the cut on the jacket would be described as generous) but so obviously borrowing from the closet is a no no in my book. Or if you are going to be that bold - be a little more discreet darling!

Enjoy your weekend lovelies!

We all do things we shouldn't - it just seems that Stylists ones are more expensive than others.

Admittedly at a discount my "Shouldn't" last season was an Alaia Black leather Trench coat. I shouldn't but I did, and gosh do I feel like a dominatrix when I wear it.

This / next season's "Shouldn't" but did - happened today at McQueen. I pre-ordered a version of this. I always had the fantasy of wearing the Birds of Paradise for my wedding and this is as close as I will ever get. I will be poor but oh so happy.

ONLY 49 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS - Have you done your shopping yet?

We haven't even had Bonfire night and the Christmas lights are going up, and Harrods has had their Christmas Parade. I sometimes wish we didn't lurch from one Marketing exercise moment to the next.

However at times it is worse - only 60 days until you will be told to by your summer bikini!
