The rain in Spain falls mainly on my window. That’s the problem with having skylights, and also living in a loft. I have to go out later, but I don’t really want to…
I hope everyone’s festive season was merry and dandy, and although it may be too much to ask, not all about conspicuous consumerism. I did see many a traveller on the Tube after Boxing Day clutching their bags full of unwanted presents. Ah gift receipts. Nature’s way of separating what you want from what you need. I’m a firm believer that the best gifts are the ones you need. That’s why I always ask for money or sweaters.
When I was EMAing it up in Belfast back in October, I knew it would be cold but crisp – and having a checked bag meant I um, got a tad enthusiastic about my outfit options. You never know, what a weekend with MTV may bring.
I was kindly loaned some Madeleine Thompson pieces to keep me warm. Oh cashmere upon cashmere. No twinsets to be seen here (although I am fond of the old lady look) or cutesy jumpers here but modern twists on classics. I do a lot of running around, and although I love dresses, they don’t tend to go well with my standard footwear of choice – Madeleine Thompson also has some great grungy pieces including my favourite piece, the Cobain dress.
A terrible photo of me nonetheless, my hair and my hat is obscuring my face. I thought I had a picture of me in the dress and I’ve been vainly hounding the others for a photo of me in it, but alas to no avail.
My birthday is in two months I’d like to add. Just putting that out there if you’re wondering what to get me..
