Something funny happened this morning, I received an email from Amazon suggesting fashion books I might like to buy and there was Style Forever in the subject header (I know, cookies. But allow me…) Mr That’s Not My Age double-checked just to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating. Also on the book list was, ‘The Secrets of Parisian Chic’ by Ines de la Fressange – out next year, which I’m looking forward to. This whole grown-up lady author business is like an out-of-body experience, I still can’t quite believe it. And so hectic. I keep thinking things will calm down and I’ll have time to sit back and reflect on my literary achievement. Ahem. Hopefully that will happen at the Style Forever New York launch party next week (at the Michele Varian store in SoHo). By the way, if you’ve left a comment saying you’d like to come – you’re on the guest list and I can’t wait to see you there.
The Velvet Party Jacket is on hold till I get to New York and I’ve been thinking about a pair of standout Book Signing Shoes. Something flatt-ish and fabulous that I can stand up in for three hours. Current favourites are the Saint Laurent star-embellished sneakers, the Miu Miu glittery flats (another Once in a Lifetime purchase) though, depending on the Velvet Party Jacket price, it might have to be the Keds for Kate Spade.
We’re heading to New York today (don’t worry, I won’t be travelling long-haul in a jumpsuit) and I’m writing this when I should be packing and putting my notes for the fashion conference together (tickets still available HERE). Though news from the front room, I’ve just heard Mr That’s Not My Age say, ‘Oh bollocks, the flight’s delayed.’
