Hello and welcome to the new grown-up That’s Not My Age. While I’m settling in and figuring out how to put my pictures up, let’s get the party started. Talking of partying, these photos are from the Style Forever launch at Duke Street Emporium. A very big thank you to Team Jigsaw for organising such a lovely event and also to my good friend Dvora for taking these brilliant photos. It was hard work, working the room but a FABulous gathering of guests made it so much easier.
I left the Showbiz Jacket at home and went for the Once in a Lifetime Jacket, instead. It’s a Céline tuxedo and I bought it in Paris. This is the most I’ve ever spent on an item of clothing but I figured as the author of a style book, I needed to do things properly. Not having a lot of spare cash to spend on expensive designer clothing and being a bit of a tightwad, I would ordinarily deliberate. But as soon as I saw the Once in a Lifetime Jacket, I knew. There was no faffing around or worrying about finances, I just thought ‘Sod it, I may never have another book launch party.’ Having said that, the credit card bill has just arrived and let’s just say I’m feeling a little less sure of myself…Anyhow. I’m going to come back to tuxedo jackets (again and again). In the meantime, similar available HERE
Regarding the new site. It was designed by ‘a totally awesome website and blog design studio’ Uniquely Lovely. And now for a little spot of housekeeping: if you had already signed up for email updates on Blogger, you should still receive them from the new site. Please let me know if there are any problems. Someone made a comment last week about logging in on WordPress being a bit of a palaver. But when you’ve done this once, there’s no need to keep logging on, the information you’ve added (your email or Facebook, Twitter details) should pop up when you return to the site, which I’m hoping everyone does. Again and again.
Oh and if you’re looking for some extra Bank Holiday reading, there’s an interview with me on the Jigsaw website HERE.
