You might not be aware of it, distracted as you are by the armies of spendy hipsters that march through your doors each week, but our relationship has been deteriorating for years. If indeed, it was ever truly a relationship to begin with - I've hankered after your nostalgic blouses, your vampy skirts and your little strappy dresses for yonks now, while you remain coolly oblivious.
I'm busy packing for Christmas in New York (woo!) at the mo so this is just a whole bundle of Christmas present fun with loads of stuff from some of my favourite brands and stores - more of a wish list than a shopping one - for you to have a quick nose at and for my friends and family to take 'inspiration' from...Cold, hard cash and Starbucks vouchers also accepted.
Who actually goes to Christmas parties, really? Apart from, potentially, one work do, which let's face it is more likely to be a karaoke sesh with Carol from accounts than the Ambassador's reception, I can't think of a single social function I attend at Christmas where it wouldn't be appropriate to wear a jumper and a bobble hat.
Bodies change; don't clutter your life with things that might fit when you lose those 5 extra pounds. There are incredible clothes available in sizes from Le Petite Waif to Curvaceous Amazon Queen, and a wardrobe is no place for what ifs. If it no longer works for your shape, goals, or taste, it's gone.
