That Is My Book. Writing Style Forever was such a whirlwind last summer (polite phrase), I still can’t quite believe it happened. I’ve been asked several times recently if I’m excited, and the honest answer is, ‘No. Not at the minute’. The Waterstones website has just told me there are 36 days to publication, so maybe it’s a bit like going on holiday and I’ll feel thrilled nearer the time and start wondering what to wear to the launch party. Style Forever: the grown-up guide to looking fabulous is out on Friday 13 March – good job I’m not superstitious – and you can pre-order a copy here.
The wonderful illustrations are by Leo Greenfield and I was pleased to read in this month’s Vogue that because of Instagram and the volume of images online, ‘We’re now photo-saturated, so drawing is special again’. The book contains style tips, advice and anecdotes, as well as interviews with Inspirational Women. I’ll be revealing a few of my fabulous interviewees over the coming weeks – together with their thoughts on age and style. This is something I would love to continue online, so if you’d like to be profiled (or to recommend someone else), please leave a coment or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Given the response to my post on Philippa Carr, this week, I think it’s a popular topic.
Thanks as always for reading. This book wouldn’t exist without you.
