I’ve written at length about my pathological clumsiness and how I’m a walking hazard zone. The fact that I’ve managed to get this far in life without breaking a bone is nothing short of a miracle. However, a couple of weeks ago, on the first day of fashion week, I took a tumble and fractured my elbow. A trifling cracked bone didn’t stop me from going to a bunch of shows and doing a voice over before I eventually went to hospital. My pain threshold is considerable and my priorities are perhaps a little askew. However, the smarting torment in my arm has finally caught up with me and I’ve surrendered to the need to rest. Typing is uncomfortable so my blog posts will be short and to the point until my elbow heals up.
Dressing well at this time of year can be channelling; the mild temperatures, tempting new season clothes in stores combined with squally showers make early spring a sartorial toughie. My solution to transeasonal dressing is to go classic and add more trendy pieces as spring progresses. This vintage leather trench coat is from Cha Cha Cha, my blouse and shoes are both from Topshop, and my vintage suede skirt was a gift from one of my best friends.
