What to wear to your own book signing
In case you were wondering what the grown-up lady author about town wears for special events; that’s me signing books at Bath in Fashion. The Showbiz Jacket is by the Belgian label Essentiel and I found it in a sale shop in Antwerp. I’m not so selfie-obsessed and so never really make the most of photo opportunities. If I was a proper fashion blogger I’d be lounging on this plush velvet seat at the Francis Hotel with a carefully positioned product or two:
Ne’er mind. The Francis Hotel was lovely, by the way. Fabulous location (centrally positioned and set in a beautiful square full of gorgeous Georgian townhouses), friendly staff and a decent breakfast. What more could you want? I’ll definitely be going back. And if you’re planning a trip to Bath, I can highly recommend it.
The talk went well. What a FABulous crowd and we had lots of fun at the Q&A afterwards; there was an impromptu scarf-tying session, and when a woman shouted out, ‘Bottoms’, a couple of volunteers gave us a twirl and demonstrated ‘How to wear leggings in a bum-flattering way’.
The following day I bumped into beautiful Jean Woods. The Fabulous
Fashionista told me that she’s given up modelling to concentrate on
her day job at the Bloomsbury store, I’m sure she must be mobbed by adoring fans asking for photos, all the time, ahem.
I asked Mr That’s Not My Age to take another photo of the Showbiz Jacket in all its sparkling glory. This is the outfit I wore for drinks with friends on the Style Forever publication day. The grey embossed suede boots were very kindly sent to me by Seven Boot Lane, who coincidently have a shop in Bath, if you’re in the area.
And don’t forget if you’d like a chance to meet the author, I’ll be signing copies of Style Forever exclusively at Duke Street Emporium on Thursday 16 April from 5pm – 7.30pm.
Hope you can make it.
