Let’s kickstart the week with a spot of action. This short video clip contains a selection of Ayumi Takahashi’s images from Know Your Style. There are loads more gorgeous illustrations in the book as well as top fashion advice and interviews. And there will be even more action at Duke Street Emporium in central London next week; where I’ll be signing copies of Know Your Style on Thursday 7 September between 5-6pm. Hope you can make it. Duke Street Emporium is a gorgeous grown-up space just off Oxford Street in Mayfair with a Jigsaw, the shop at bluebird and a Fernandez & Wells cafe. That’s where you’ll find me feeding my face with coffee, wine and tasty snacks. Yep. I Know MY Style.
Over the weekend, I bumped into a few That’s Not My Age followers – I never fail to be surprised when that happens but it’s always a pleasure – and it goes without saying that every woman I meet is friendly, chic and stylish. Then yesterday I received a wonderful message from a new reader:
‘I bought your book ‘Style Forever’ today. We were in Waterstones and I liked the cover. I read a few words and thought, this is the book for me. It is just before ‘wine-time’ on the same day and I have finished half of it. Perfect. It’s funny, pertinent, classy and will be very useful! Thanks for writing it. I am 64, don’t care how old I look as long as I look good. I wear jeans, dance a lot, love music, wear lipstick every day and walk two miles most early mornings (unless I’m feeling lazy). Your book has given me even more hope than I have already!!’
This is what makes it all worthwhile. Thank you, one and all.
