Go for Gold


Psynopsis Streetstyle London Craig Lawrence Knit Top
Thank you for all the helpful tips! After eating warm apple pie, drinking hot chocolate, heaping up the khol, having a shower, slurping spicy soups, putting on some killer heels and a big cosy coat, swallowing kilos of vitamins and getting into a shouting match with a guy who occupied my parking space (see, not much difference here, Drollgirl!)* I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER.

At the Taxonomy of my Wardrobe I also entertained myself with this video showing Anna dello Russo, editor of Japanese Vogue and the pin-up girl of fashion. Phew, the lady works out every morning for hours, she's got no kitchen because she needs space for her 4000 pairs of shoes and the husband got ditched for additional clothes space.** I might not share her opinions on fur (her 'weakness') or on vintage (she only likes new stuff), but her obsession with devotion to fashion is quite fascinating. Plus, 'Gold is the new black'? Gotta love that.




*At one point, when things started turning nasty I ran away to get my man who had to wave the diplomatic wand to smooth out things, and then turning to me: 'Next time you pick a fight could you please choose a slightly smaller guy?'.

So happy to hear you're finally feeling a bit better, Sabine. What would we do without our caring fellow bloggers?
Loved that Anna Dello Russo interview, she's enough to cheer anyone up. xxx

Anna Della Russo is definitely more diva than Anna Wintour. At least Wintour has a family....but in all fairness Della Russo picked the right job, she was literally born for the job of fashion editor.

Great to hear you're finally shaking the dreaded lurgy Sabine!
I'm in the middle of an epic clear out, clothes seem to have been breeding and I've ran out of space...the hubs is a chief washer up and an ironing machine (!) so ditching him is not an option ;)
